Morning porridge tastes so much more exciting when you add something to it! Whether you are using quick and convenient microwavable oats or making porridge the old fashioned way, it’s a great nourishing and filling way to start your day.


  • 6 x Nature’s Finest Pitted Prunes, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp soft light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp dark cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100g porridge oats
  • 500ml unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 80g dairy-free yogurt
  • 2 tsp toasted almond flakes
  1. Put the sugar and cocoa powder in a small pan, and gradually add the vanilla, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil over a medium heat. Reduce the heat and simmer for 6-8 minutes or until slightly thickened and syrupy. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool slightly.
  2. Meanwhile, tip the oats into a medium pan and stir in the milk, prunes, cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Cook over a low-medium heat for 4-5 minutes, stirring until thick and creamy.
  3. Divide the porridge between too bowls, and top with fruit of your choice, a drizzle of your favourite syrup, a sprinkling of flaked almonds, and a few chocolate drops for a treat!
