Healthy indulgence

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):

75g oats

30g chia seeds

150ml almond milk, or depending on preferred consistency

3 tbsp honey, or to taste

1 tbsp cacao powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1 apple

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!
