Simple Oat Porridge

Cooking Time: 15 mins
Recipe Level: Easy

Serves: 1
Shelf Life: Can be stored in the fridge for a day


Sauce pan with lid and whisk


  • 4 tbsp of oats
  • 1 tbsp of chia seeds
  • 1-2 cups of water
  • 1 Tsp cup of crushed almond
  • 1 handful of blueberries
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon powder
  • Honey/ Maple Syrup (to taste)




  1. Combine the water and oats in a saucepan over a low heat on the hob 
  2. Stir continuously as the porridge cooks – this should take 7-10 minutes, but never let the mixture dry out, add in more water if your oats start to stick to the pan. 
  3. Stir through the almond powder and chia seeds, then cover the pan with a lid and turn off the heat, allow the porridge to sit for a minute while the chia seeds soak up the liquid (and it cools down enough to eat!).
  4. Spoon your porridge into a jar, scatter with blueberries and sprinkle the cinnamon powder. 
  5. Drizzle with honey or Maple Syrup before serving.


If you like your porridge more crunchy (like I do), spoon some oats into the jar before adding cooked porridge.
