As the weather cools down in Australia, we are embracing the opportunity to have some fun with some hot breakfast options. And while winter weather is coming in, fig season is going out so we thought we would capture the last of this delicious fruit by pairing it with a warming bowl of oat porridge so you can start the day feeling nourished and warm!
Fig & Almond Porridge
1/3 cup rolled oats
½ cup Original Luz Almond milk
½ cup water
1 tbsp almonds, chopped
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ – 1 tsp cinnamon
2 fresh figs chopped
1 tsp sweetener such as honey, rice malt syrup or maple syrup
- Bring rolled oats, salt, water and Luz Almond milk to the boil on medium – high heat. Stir continuously.
- Once boiling turn down heat to low and add cinnamon and vanilla. Stir continuously for approximately 3-5 minutes or until desired consistency is reached. You may want to add a little more almond milk or water if it becomes too thick.
- Remove the heat, pour into a bowl and stir in chopped figs. Arrange a few remaining fig pieces on top, sprinkle the almonds, add a light dusting of cinnamon and drizzle the honey.
- Enjoy immediately!
