I eat a lot of porridge, and I mean a lot! It’s super healthy and normally keeps me full up until lunchtime. However, as I eat it quite frequently, I decided to stir things up a little by adding some new and exciting flavours to what can, at times, seem like a pretty boring breakfast. That said, although this has added a new dimension to my porridge bowl the British Bakewell combination of cherry and almonds is actually rather classic and tastes absolutely delicious.
This is super simple to make and so I feel a little bit of a fraud even calling it a recipe as I probably spent more time trying to make it look pretty than I did actually cooking it. If you feel inspired to make this recipe and to try to make it look pretty, as I have, I would love to hear from you and see photos what you have made. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Berry Bakewell Porridge
The flavours for this recipe were inspired by the classic British Bakewell combination of cherry and almonds.
- 40g gluten free porridge oats
- 1 tablespoon ground almonds or 1 tablespoon almond nut butter
- 125mL dairy free almond or coconut milk
- 125mL water
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- Maple syrup, if required
- 80g pitted cherries or a combination of cherries and other berries (see FIBRO FOOD FAIRY TIPS)
- Small handful of toasted flaked almonds
Add the top five ingredients to a non-stick saucepan and heat through gently, stirring continuously, until the porridge is your desired consistency, approximately 3-4 minutes. Alternatively place the same ingredients in a microwave bowl and cook on full power for 2-3 minutes. Taste and sweeten with the maple syrup, if required. To serve top with the cherries and toasted almonds.
FIBRO FOOD FAIRY TIP: no need to stick to just using cherries, I have used a combination of cherries and raspberries here which has turned the porridge a lovely shade of pink!
