Strawberry, Pecan & Coconut Porridge

Good morning everyone – happy hump day!

I am actually just about to leave for work but wanted to share a super yummy breakfast recipe for you to try out this week. I’ve mentioned a couple of times on Where Is My Teaspoon that I have a big love for porridge so, no surprises, here is another porridge recipe for you. There is something so wholesome about eating a bowl of healthy oats in the morning and I always feel more awake after a hot breakfast.

So yes, I love porridge but often find it hard to keep thinking of new ways to eat it or flavour combinations to try it. Keep checking in on my Instagram and be sure to tag me if you find a good recipe so I can try it out 🙂 Find the recipe below – guys please let me know what you think and share any great porridge combos you have regularly too? I’m always on the look out for something new.

right you need,

30g porridge oats

300ml milk – your choice but full fat cows milk is always mine!

10g pecans – chopped

2 tbsp dried coconut

4 strawberries – chopped

1 tsp honey – optional

My top tip for making a great bowl of porridge is to soak the oats in a small bit of milk the night before. To do this, weigh out your oats into a bowl and add maybe 100ml of milk. Stir and pop in the fridge.

The next morning, find a nice sized saucepan and add your porridge.

Heat up slowly on a low temperature until it begins to thicken.

Add the strawberries, pecans and coconut, along with the rest of the milk.

Keep stirring slowly and allow the porridge to cook for between 10-20 minutes. The type of oats will influence how long you need to cook it.

If you like your porridge looser in consistency, add a little more milk or even some water to loosen it up.

To serve, pour the porridge into a bowl and add one final splash of milk. Add honey to taste if you like and enjoy a good, nutritious breakfast for a great day at work.

Another tip I’ll share with you though is that dried coconut is a natural sweetener so you might find it’s a good way of giving up adding sugar or honey to your breakfast. Give it a go and see.
