I love Autumn. I love the crisp, fresh air, the changing colours and the seasonal ingredients: figs, apples and the obvious pumpkins. For me, Autumn is what Christmas is to a child – It just excites me.What comes along with Autumn is comfort food and porridge is one of those foods that can comfort you at any time of the day. My usual go-to porridge is chocolate and chia (you can view a variation of it here), but when I have the time, I like to make something a bit more ‘fancy’. Even so, now that I no longer have to use a saucepan to achieve creamy, delicious oats; I can eat fancier porridge every day if I wanted to and this bowl of Apple pie porridge is a perfect example of that.
- 1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
- 85g Bramley Apple Sauce ( Yup the kind you have with a roast dinner)
- 250ml Boiling Hot Water
- 125ml Vegan Milk ( I used cashew)
- 2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
- 1/2 Tsp Pumpkin Spice (check my Instagram for recipe)
- Pumpkin Seeds (optional)
Add the porridge oats, water and milk to a bowl, stir and place in the microwave for 3 minutes. Make sure you stop half way through and stir the oats; this will also stop the porridge from rising and spilling out of the bowl too.
When your porridge has cooked, stir the pumpkin spice and Apple sauce through your breakfast and top off with maple syrup and pumpkin seeds.
