Decadent Porridge

Oats are proven to keep you full for longer, exactly what you need for a day in the outdoors. With the addition of coconut, cacao, dates and almonds this tastes more like a decadent dessert than porridge! Sometimes I'll use dried fruit such as blueberries or strawberries as a change, and even banana chips. A pinch of salt always brings out the flavour of porridge. Great hot or cold!


  • 75g oats
  • 6 chopped dates
  • 1 dsp cacao powder
  • 1 dsp almond flakes
  • 2 dsp desiccated coconut
  • 1 tbsp powdered milk
  • 190ml water
  • Pinch of salt


Nuts taste wonderful toasted so sprinkle the almonds in a very hot pan and toss until dark brown (this can be done at home). set aside to cool.

All the dried ingredients can be mixed together and sealed in a plastic bag. Ideally the night before, add the water and let soak overnight. It can be eaten cold in the morning or simply heat through if you like your breakfast hot. Of course, use fresh milk if you have it, or your preferred dairy alternative. If you like it sweet, add a sprinkle of sugar or better still, either maple syrup or honey.
