This porridge recipe is made with quinoa flakes as well as the traditional oat flakes for that extra protein rich boost! Flavoured with a classic chocolate orange combo, sweetened with apricots and topped with hazelnut butter makes this oatmeal breakfast bowl a perfect comforting start to the day. Not only is it rich and tasty but it will also slowly release energy throughout the morning. The apricot puree can be made in a batch and kept in the fridge, and its a great way to sweeten a porridge and avoid sugar, its also really yummy and the kids will adore it. Why not add a few whole hazelnuts on top?



  1. To make the apricot puree soak a handful of dried apricots overnight in enough water to cover them. Without draining, whizz the fruit up in a blender to form a paste. Or you can use whole apricots, by chopping them as small as possible and add them to the mix before cooking.
  2. In a non-stick saucepan add the oats, quinoa, orange zest, cacao cinnamon, and about half of the plant milk.
  3. On a low heat for about 15 mins, slowly heat through the mixture stirring frequently, adding more milk a little at a time as it absorbs as the grains cook.
  4. Add the agave syrup to taste if required, and the apricot puree and mix well. Keep adding milk to desired consistency.
  5. Serve immediately with a scoop of hazelnut butter, a handful of whole hazelnuts and a slice of orange on top.
