Peanut butter porridge

Ingredients (serves 2)

100g porridge oats

600ml oat milk

¼tsp cinnamon

½ vanilla pod

1tbsp pumpkin seeds

2tsp flaxseeds

2tsp Meridian date syrup


In a saucepan combine the oats, oat milk, cinnamon and seeds scraped from the vanilla pod. Bring to the boil and gently simmer for six to eight minutes, stirring regularly until the oats are cooked and the porridge has thickened. If the porridge is too thick for your liking add some water or more milk.

Remove from the heat and stir in the Meridian peanut butter.

Divide between two bowls and top with the seeds and date syrup

Experiment with added fresh or dried fruit, yoghurt and seeds. If you prefer, use half milk and half water.  And, pop the scraped vanilla pod into a jar of sugar to make vanilla sugar for baking cakes or biscuits.
