Morning porridge with a healthy twist

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day as they say. And porridge is the king of breakfast foods. But it can be quite bland and time consuming. Unless you dress it up. It really is very easy. You just need some inspiration.

We love this recipe because it doesn’t require much time. And it doesn’t require much work in the morning. For we know that an easy morning start is what makes our day.

So let us motivate you. Let us inspire you. With a nutritious, healthy and most importantly, delicious breakfast recipe to start your day!

We will not use only oats, but add some nuts, fresh fruit and spice. And extra virgin olive oil! Yes, you heard right. Olive oil is one of the healthiest foods to add to your breakfast. We will use our 18°C extra virgin olive oil. Single estate, unfiltered, and cold extracted at 18°C. This is the first olive oil of the season. It is made from small and green unripe olives. With its intense flavour and unique grassy taste, it goes perfectly with your morning oats!

For a warm bowl of porridge you will need:

50g oats
1 pinch of salt
1 pinch of ground cinnamon
2 tbs 18°C extra virgin olive oil 
1 banana or any other fruit you like
walnuts or other nuts

Bring the oats to a boil with a pinch of salt and 350ml milk or water. Add the ground cinnamon and nuts (if using), crushed. Lower the heat and stir for 3-4min. If needed, add some milk or water until it reaches your desired consistency.

Serve with a sliced banana or any other fruit you like, honey (if using). Drizzle a couple of tablespoons of the aromatic olive oil on each bowl.

Serve with hot tea or coffee and start your day happy and healthy!
