Almond & Banana Porridge

It feels kind of odd posting a recipe on how to make porridge but at the end of the day I am blogging what I eat and this is what I had for breakfast today.

I do also find that a reoccurring question is what do I eat for breakfast. The answer is pretty much what everyone else does just minus the animal products. I have cereal with a plant based milk instead of cow’s milk, toast with organic peanut butter or vegemite and coconut oil, vegemite and cashew cheese on toast, fruit and vegetable smoothies, scrambled tofu, baked beans and the list goes on.

But I will photograph and upload more breakfast ideas over time to help anyone new to the plants only game 🙂


1/2 a cup of wholemeal oats (if you don’t have wholemeal don’t worry)

1 cup of almond milk (you can use any plant based milk)

1 large ripe banana, sliced

pure maple syrup



Put the oats and almond milk in a bowl and stir so that all the oats are wet.

Microwave for approximately 3 minutes. You may need slightly more or less cooking time depending on the strength of your microwave.

Carefully remove the bowl from the microwave with a tea towel because it is most likely going to be HOT. Top the oats with the banana and maple syrup to taste and a dash more almond milk.


Serves: Serves 1.

Time: Just MINUTES!

Notes: To make gluten free, use gluten free oats. #ALSO NOTE: if you are coeliac discuss this with your dietitian and/or GP. Unlike other countries, Australian standards do not recognise GF oats as safe for consumption for anyone with coeliacs disease.
