PEAR & PRUNE OAT PORRIDGE
Did someone say breakfast? For years I was adamant breakfast wasn’t for me, but now I just can’t seem to get enough. This is the perfect start to the day or pre-training meal you need! The great thing is you can dress oats however you like, which is why I have so many variations of oat recipes
A few pinches of ground cinnamon
50g gluten free oats
2 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
300ml diary free yoghurt (milk for diluting – optional)
2 small pears, cored and sliced
2 tsp sunflower or pumpkin seeds
This is such an easy recipe to make, I highly recommend making the night before – plus you can always make in bulk and use over the week! Place all the prunes in a small pan with cinnamon. Cover with water and bring to the boil, and simmer for 5-6 minutes. Tip everything into a bowl and cover – set aside and let it soak over night.
Place the oats and chia seeds into a bowl, pour over 300ml of boil hot water and stir well, cover and leave to soak over night. In the morning or when you come to eat the porridge add the vanilla and half of the yoghurt into the oat mixture and stir – feel free to add more milk/yoghurt until it becomes and consistency you like. Spoon into a bowl and add the remaining yoghurt over the top along with the prunes, pears and seeds!
