Cozy apple-cinnamon porridge with berries

Getting up on cold autumn days can be very hard, at least for me this is the case. Even better if you have a breakfast that warms you from the inside. The apple porridge with warm berry compote from Deliciously Ella is very easy to make and requires only a few ingredients. It’s ready to eat within maximum 10 minutes, so even if there is not much time for an extensive breakfast during the week, this oatmeal is a very good option to start your day 🙂 It keeps you satisfied until lunch and is rich in fiber to fill up your energy storage.

 

To diversify it a bit or just adjust it seasonally, you can refine the dish for example by using the Oatmeal Spice by Just Spices, adding a bit of cinnamon or any other spice you like 🙂 Also seasonal fruits or different fruit compotes (from apples and pears, cherries, figues or even pumpkin) will give it an individual character. In my version of the recipe, I also add chia seeds.

So here’s everything you need (serving one person):

  • 35g rolled oats
  • 5g chia seeds
  • 200ml almond milk (or any other milk you like)
  • 1 apple
  • 100g frozen berries

Instructions:

  1. First, mix the chia seeds with 2-3 table spoons of water and let it swell for a few minutes.
  2. During the swelling time of the chia seeds, grate the apple on a shredding machine/grater and put it into your cooking pot together with the rolled oats and the milk.
  3. Add the chia gel and the spices you like (cinnamon etc.) and heat up the mixture. Let it boil for approximately 7-10 minutes at medium heat. (If you want, you can add some sweeter)
  4. In another pot, heat up the frozen berries and bring them to the boil as well.
  5. Remove the porridge from the hot plate and leave it for a few minutes. Through this, the porridge will thicken again a bit so it’s more creamy.
  6. Fill the oatmeal in your breakfast bowl and top it with the berry compote and enjoy 🙂

Note: If you want you can also top it with some maple syrup or rice syrup.
