Sticky Toffee Porridge (Vegan, GF)

In my mind, the perfect weekday breakfast must be three things:

  1. Super quick to make (because the less time I spend in the kitchen, the more time I spend in bed).
  2. Somewhat healthy (nothing like a super sugary brekkie to ensure a monster sugar rush come 10 am).
  3. Quite filling (because if I’m hungry an hour later, what’s even the point of breakfast?).

This Sticky Toffee Porridge is a weekday breakfast dreamboat.

It meets all three of the above criteria, obviously.

It takes less than 10 minutes to make from start to finish and as few as 3 minutes if you make the date caramel ahead of time.

It’s free of processed sugar and packed full of good for you ingredients. Vitamins and minerals in the dates; healthy fats, protein, magnesium and vitamin E in the almonds; fiber-rich oats (that helps keeping you full ’til lunchtime)…

It’s naturally vegan and gluten-free (provided that you use gluten-free oats).

And then it tastes like sticky toffee pudding.

Ingredients

  • 25g porridge oats
  • 200ml water or almond milk
  • 1 tsp ground almond

Instructions

  1. Place the dates in a bowl. Cover with boiling water and soak for 10-15 minutes. Remove the dates from the soaking water (save the water for later) and peel them. Place the flesh in a food processor and blend until smooth and lump-free, adding a bit of the soaking water if necessary.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the oats, water, ground almond and cane syrup. Cook for 2-3 min or until it thickens.
  3. In a glass, layer the porridge and date caramel, top with a light sprinkle of chopped almonds and serve immediately.
