Ingredients

30g Oats

100ml Water

1 tbsp Peanut Butter

Cinnamon (to taste)

Toppings (optional)

100g Blueberries

1 Banana

3 tbsp high protein Yoghurt

1 tbsp dried berries / fruit

1 tbsp mixed seeds

Instructions

Add the oats, water, peanut butter and cinnamon to a small saucepan and bring to medium heat, letting it simmer until thickened to your desired consistency.

Serve

Pour the porridge into a bowl, then cut the banana into slices and use it and the other toppings to decorate your porridge.

Storage

Ideally eaten fresh, but leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Notes

I prefer to use peanut butter with 100% peanuts, but feel free to use what’s available to you.

In terms of toppings, feel free to use what you have or prefer. For the yoghurt can use dairy or non-dairy options.

Oats are naturally gluten free, but in processing can be contaminated with gluten, so if you need it make sure to get a certified version.

For a weight loss option or lighter meal, reduce the peanut butter to 1 tsp and/or use less oats or toppings.

For a weight gain option or a more substantial meal, use another tablespoon of peanut butter to top the porridge.

Calories per serving: 326 kcal

Calories per 100g: 102 kcal

Ingredients

45g Oats

1/2 tsp Matcha (green tea) powder

50ml unsweetened soy milk

100ml water

1 Banana

1 tsp hemp seeds

1 tsp coconut flakes

Instructions

Combine oats, water and matcha powder in a pot and simmer over low heat while stirring. Once the mixture has thickened, add the soy milk. Let simmer and stir again until the desired consistency is reached. Then top with banana, hemp seeds and coconut flakes to serve.

Storage

The porridge itself can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days, the toppings should be added just before serving.

Notes

Oats are naturally gluten free, to ensure that this recipe is also, make sure to get oats that were not processed in a factory which also processes wheat products.

If you don’t have the suggested toppings, feel free to use what you have at home. Any fruit, nuts, dried fruit, seeds, leftover chocolate, nut butter. Personally I like to have a crunchy element though.

If you don’t have matcha, feel free to add any other flavourings to the porridge you may have, such as cinnamon, nut butter or chocolate spread.

If you don’t have soy milk or don’t require the recipe to be vegan, feel free to add the milk you have. Taste wise I personally prefer to use plant milks, rather than diary, but it will work with any milk.
