Nourishing Winter Porridge

I’ve started back eating porridge for breakfast lately. It’s so delicious! At the weekend I give myself a little treat and I have my porridge with either sweet almond milk or sweet hazelnut milk. It makes such a difference to the flavour.

I also sweeten it up a little more with some date syrup, a couple of medjool dates and whatever fruit I have handy. I keep the portions the same all the time but I mix up the topping, depending on what I have to hand.

This isn’t really a recipe as such, I guess it’s more of a product review. I met John and Kathleen from Adora Farm at this year’s Dublin Vegfest and since then I’ve been mad about their products. I hadn’t been able to find whole flax seeds before so I was delighted to source them from them. They also do an amazing flax seed oil that has been cold pressed. I add this to as many meals as possible, I even give my dogs a little drizzle of it on their breakfast.


What You’ll Need: (serves 1)

  • 1/2 cup of organic porridge oats
  • 1 cup of sweet almond or hazelnut milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon of date syrup
  • 1 tablespoon of flax seeds from Adora Farm
  • 1 tablespoon of Iswari Super Sprout mix



  1. Mix the porridge oats and milk in a pot and place over a medium heat. Cook until done. You can add in the date syrup at this stage if you like or drizzle over at the end.
  2. Sprinkle over the seeds and fruit and that’s it.

Share and enjoy!
