Is porridge for basic bitches?
I've always enjoyed porridge for breakfast, but as exciting as it got was using the maple syrup Quaker Oats rather than the plain version. I had always just accepted that porridge was meant to be boring. Recently though, I've been inspired to "pimp my porridge" and I'm obsessed!
How it goes down...
I like to use gluten-free oats as they don't make me feel too full or bloated. Now for the "pimping"...I've been favouring more of a chocolatey porridge as of late - I use Oatly chocolate oat milk and add some cocoa powder.
I then microwave and add a little more milk until I get my desired consistency. I always add banana and peanut butter (holy grail), then I'll add a selection of seeds. Here I used flaxseed, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds and a little berry jam.
Lastly, no porridge of mine is complete without a generous squeeze of agave syrup - a healthier alternative to sugar and vegan unlike honey. I then take a pretty picture for my Instagram (@cocoeatsvegan) before mixing it all together - soooo satisfying!
I love this breakfast not just because it tastes good, but I really enjoy getting creative - especially with the presentation. (I'm trying to up my "instagram worthy" photography skills, can you tell?)
How do you "pimp" your porridge?
