When it’s chilly outside, I always need something warming to stoke up my little fire in the mornings and keep me going until lunchtime (ok until elevenses maybe). I’m a massive porridge lover, but sometimes it’s nice to spice things up a bit and make something a little different.
Oats are so awesome for breakfast as they contain heaps of fibre as well as slow release energy, so no nasty blood sugar spikes like you might find with many shop-bought breakfast cereals. Berries are packed to the brim with antioxidants and vitamins (and are one of your five a day of course) and cinnamon is great as it also helps to regular blood sugar and stave off any sweet cravings later in the day. Almond milk is great for you too, especially if you make your own as there won’t be any funny ingredients that you can’t pronounce in it, and maple syrup (although sweet-tasting) is an unrefined sugar, plus we only use a tiny bit of it in this recipe and if you don’t fancy it you can totally leave it out and it will still be super delish.
So there you go, this berrylicious breakfast is not only really good for you, but it’s also basically a hug in a bowl (or a ramekin). We hope you love it too!
Makes two ramekins or one bowl
- 1/2 cup berries (most supermarkets sell mixed frozen berries which are pretty inexpensive and super convenient)
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp maple syrup (optional)
This is so super easy to whip up – simply mix all the ingredients except the berries together in a bowl, then spoon this mixture and the berries into ramekins or a bowl.
Pop them in the oven and bake at 180 degrees for about 20-25 minutes, or until firm on top. Enjoy on their own or with a big dollop of coconut yogurt on top – yum!
Love, D&H xx
