If you’re looking for something warm, hearty and full of festive flavours to start your day, then you need to try this Winter Porridge. These creamy spiced oats paired with naturally sweet and syrupy mulled fruits makes for the most comforting breakfast. It’s vegan, can be made gluten-free (just use gluten-free oats) and full of nutritional goodness too. Plus it’s so quick and easy to make! The fruits are steeped in cranberry juice and mulled wine flavourings (don’t worry - there is no alcohol in this breakfast) for the most delicious and Christmassy breakfast topping you can imagine.
Serve with some clementine slices and a drizzle of maple syrup or a dollop of orange marmalade. Enjoy!
