A healthy vegan breakfast that tastes quite indulgent – oat & chia seed porridge made with almond milk, a little honey, cinnamon & cacao powder (hence the colour!) for flavour and sweetness, topped with sautéed apple & toasted flaked almonds.
Recipe (serves 2):
30g chia seeds
150ml almond milk, or depending on preferred consistency
3 tbsp honey, or to taste
1 tbsp cacao powder
1 tsp cinnamon
3 tbsp flaked almonds
Peel, core and chop the apple into small chunks. Put in a saucepan with a little vegan butter or coconut oil and sauté for 5 minutes until softened but retaining some texture. Turn off the heat and leave in the pan.
Lightly dry fry the flaked almonds in a frying pan until just starting to colour then remove from the heat.
Meanwhile put the oats, chia seeds, cinnamon, cacao powder and almond milk in a saucepan on a low heat and cook gently for 5-10 minutes until thickened. Stir in the honey until thoroughly combined.
Pour into bowls and top each one with the apple and almonds, then enjoy!
