Warm Winter Porridge

Call me weird but I absolutely LOVE porridge. There’s nothing better on a cold day than to wake up to a bowl of warm & creamy porridge. In fact, while traveling to USA and Canada, I’ve left a trail of Oats and Almond Milk in my wake.

I go through phases of ‘fruit preference’ and I was on banana while writing this recipe, hence that’s what I’ve used here. I also love the extra texture & crunch that pistachios provide. You can use any nut of your preference.

  • 1/2cup jumbo rolled oats (not the quick cooks ones)
  • 1/2banana
  • A pinch of cinnamon
  • 10 pistachios, roughly chopped
  • 1/2cup almond milk (or any milk of your preference)
  • 1/2cup water


  1. Bring milk, water,rolled oats and banana to a boil in a pot.
  2. Turn the heat down so the milk just simmers.
  3. Add cinnamon and cook oats for 4-5mins, stirring continuously (Stirring oats regularly makes it nice and creamy)
  4. Transfer cooked oats to a bowl and sprinkle with pistachios.
  5. Enjoy the creamy and crunchy porridge!!


  1. If you want sweeter porridge, add brown sugar in step 1. For a healthier option, add 1 chopped date or 1 chopped dried fig instead of sugar.
  2. Add apple or pear instead of banana.
  3. Throw in a few berries on the top for a more colourful and healthier breakfast!
