Today’s porridge: Figgy Pudding

While trawling the virtual supermarket shelves (it’s not a good idea for me to actually enter a supermarket as all I can see is red and I lose all sense of humanity!) for things to put in my porridge, I came across figs. Why not? I thought. I’m sure I can think of something to do with them.

It came to me while discussing Christmas with someone (they’d started their Christmas shopping already!!): figgy pudding. I thought it would be the perfect thing for chilly mornings (we’ve had a few this week) and anything that’s got cinnamon in it is a winner in my eyes.

So here you are: my figgy pudding flavour porridge.


Figgy Pudding Porridge ingredients

All the things that go into it…

40g oats
10g milled seeds
30g figs
10g sultanas
5g walnuts
½ tsp mixed spice
200ml almond milk
50ml water
10g agave syrup



The night before…

Combine all the ingredients, apart from the agave syrup, in a bowl. Cover and place in the fridge.

Stir yet again and then pour on the agave syrup. Stir for a final time.

Porridge + agave syrup = sweet as hell, but oh so good!
