Morning Porridge Oats


The wholegrain cereal is rich in fiber, has high protein content and helps stabilize your blood sugar.

Pre or after a workout or just for a full on breakfast, porridge oats are just the best comfort breakfast ever and a great substitute of those ‘healthy wholegrain’ packed with sugar cereals that you have been eating in the morning.

Full of goodness, you can add fruits, seeds or nuts of your choice.

Basics: Oats, almond milk, egg, banana and cinnamon.


If you think that porridge oats are just flavorless, well, you are right BUT if you add banana and cinnamon that will give the oats some flavor and sweetness – the fruits and nuts on  top will do the rest.

Total time: 15 mins

Author: Honest Onion
Recipe type: Breakfast & Snacks
Serves: 1


  • 1/2 cup of almond milk
  • 6 tbsp oats
  • 1 egg (or just the egg white)
  • 1 ripe smashed banana
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon


  1. Place the oats and the milk in a large pan over medium heat and stir until the milk comes to a boil.
  2. Add the cinnamon and banana. Fold into the oats and keep stirring for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the egg white and mix it together with the oats until the whites are cooked.
  4. Add more milk if you like your porridge runnier or let it simmer for a bit longer if you like it more dry.
  5. Remove the porridge from the heat, place it in a bowl and add whatever toppings you want: fruit (berries, banana), honey, yogurt, seeds, granola, nuts, etc.


For this recipe we used banana, granola nuts and honey on top but you can always get creative and try some other ingredients.

So, say yes to porridge. Especially during Winter. This breakfast will be one of your Sunday favorites.
