Deliciously Ella’s Almond Butter And Hemp Speedy Porridge

Try this warming, healthy porridge from Deliciously Ella.


  • 60g rolled oats
  • 100ml plant-based milk
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter shelled hemp seeds



  1. Place the oats in a saucepan and pour in 150ml of boiling water. Leave to soak for 10 minutes; all the water should have been absorbed and they should be just about soft enough to eat.
  2. Pour in the milk, coconut oil (this adds flavour and texture), honey and ginger. Add half the almond butter.
  3. Cook for 5–10 minutes, until it’s nice and creamy and the oats are really soft.
  4. Serve, with the remaining almond butter and a sprinkling of hemp seeds on top.

Be careful of different types of oats! Porridge oats take only 3 or 4 minutes to cook; soaking turns them to mush. Extra-thick rolled oats take much longer and need more liquid. Use standard rolled oats instead.
