Apple & Almond Porridge

Porridge can be made more exciting with toppings and additions. Apples are a perfect source of fibre, containing pectin which is good for your gut. Almonds include Vitamin E which support healthy skin and hair.

Recipe for Apple & Almond Porridge


  • 1/2 to 3/4 apple, grated
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 80g porridge oats
  • 200ml water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • milk of choice for topping
  • Seeds to add to top (I used pumpkin and sunflower seeds)

Method to Make Porridge

  1. Put all the ingredients into a pan, stir the porridge constantly over a low heat for about 2-5 minutes until thoroughly heated.
  2. Add more water if it gets too stodgy.
  3. Add seeds and milk of choice to serve. 

This is a really warming way to start the day, with good fibre from the apples and fats from the almonds.

You could add a protein powder like a teaspoon of hemp powder or extra chia seeds for a further boost.
