simple spiced porridge

Fills your kitchen and your tummy with warm sweet spices. This porridge is really simple and a great cosy comfort food. A fab way to start a crisp, cold autumnal or winter day and an even better way to end it! I love this porridge in the evening before bed, makes me warm from the inside and the nutmeg helps me relax into a sleepy, dozy state. Adjust the spicing to your taste buds and enjoy!


  • 1 C gluten-free oats*
  • 2 C cold water**
  • grind of pink himalayan salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • good grating of nutmeg


  1. In a heavy bottomed pan add all the ingredients, then stir until combined.

  2. Cover and cook over a low flame until the oats have absorbed all the water.

  3. Transfer into a bowl of choice, and add your favourite topping. I like a drizzle of maple syrup and a good grating of nutmeg in the evening; and for brekkie I like a little sprinkling of dark muscovado sugar, cinnamon and dot of dairy-free spread. YUM! 


*I use the larger jumbo gluten-free oats, rather than the heavily milled Nairns gluten-free oats for my porridge.

**If you want to get more nutrients into yourself or your child use a m!lk alternative instead of water - like coconut m!lk, or oat m!lk. They both work really well in porridge.
