Cherry Bakewell Porridge

I always add some protein and a portion of fruit to my oats so this pairing of nutrient packed cherries and almonds seemed like a perfect porridge topping.

Cherries are a source of fibre, vitamin C, potassium and potentially anti-inflammatory polyphenols and when they are in season (July) I’ll use fresh ones to make my cherry compote but frozen cherries are a good option for other times of year.

You can leave out the almond extract if you’d prefer a more subtle flavour.

INGREDIENTS

50g rolled oats
300ml almond milk (or milk of your choice)
¼ tsp almond extract (optional)
1-2 tbsp cherry compote
4-5 fresh cherries
handful flaked almonds

 


STEP-BY-STEP

Pour the oats and milk into a pan and bring to the boil, stirring continually. Reduce heat and simmer for 5-6 minutes, stirring regularly until thickened into a creamy porridge. Stir in the almond extract, if using, and serve topped with the cherry compote, fresh cherries and flaked almonds.
