It only takes 4 minutes and is healthy. No more excuses for not having breakfast!
Breakfast is probably the best time of the day. And I’m not saying that because I love getting up early (I totally don’t.) or because I think cereals are the best thing ever (clearly, chocolate is so much better). I say that because having a great breakfast is the best foundation to a great day.
And while that sounds really cheesy, it is true. Not only because like, almost all scientist say so but also because you can actually test it yourself: Have a really sugary breakfast with chocolate croissants and a hot chocolate with whipped cream on one day. And the next day, try some healthy porridge without sugar and add some fruits and have maybe a green tea or some coffee with it. Which day will be better?
It’s a bit of a no-brainer, really. Porridge for the win! This recipe combines porridge, fruits and vanilla so it’s sweet, creamy and tangy. Perfect for those cold Monday mornings.
Porridge with Marinated Raspberries
- 50g porridge oats (unsweetened)
- 300ml milk (I used vegan milk)
- 175g raspberries
- 2 tbsp agave syrup*
- 1tsp vanilla bean paste**
Combine the porridge oats and the milk and microwave it in a bowl for 3 minutes.
In the meantime, wash the raspberries and combine them with the agave syrup and vanilla bean paste. You don’t want to stir too much, just gently cover all raspberries in the mixture.
Once the porridge is out of the microwave, stir it and top it with the marinated raspberries.
I also sprinkled some vegan dark chocolate on top but that’s optional of course :)
That’s it! Super healthy breakfast in under 5 minutes, hooray!
*You can buy agave syrup in any bigger Sainsbury’s for around 3 pounds, or just check your local health store, they usually have it as well.
**I always use vanilla bean paste because it’s so much nicer than all the concentrated vanilla essence and the taste is so much better! Plus, it doesn’t have any E numbers or any other preservatives added and you can still see that it was made of vanilla pods. It is a bit more expensive (around 6 pounds) but I bought a small bottle 3 month ago and it’s not even half empty yet. And I bake A LOT.
