The Simplest Chia Oat Porridge

This recipe couldn’t be easier and only calls for a handful of ingredients, most of which you are likely to already have in the cupboard, plus porridge is great fuel for a run. You can pimp it up with any extras to make it your own, but this is a great base to start from. Great additions include: a sprinkle of cinnamon, a few chopped nuts, some maca powder, raw cacao powder and almond butter.

Ingredients: (Serves 1)

4 tbsp of oats
1 tbsp of chia seeds
1-2 cups of water
½ cup of almond (or other non-dairy) milk
1 banana
1 handful of blueberries
Honey (to taste)


Combine the water and oats in a saucepan over a low heat. Stir continuously as the porridge cooks – this should take 7-10 minutes, but never let the mixture dry out, add in more water if your oats start to stick to the pan. Stir through the almond milk and chia seeds, then turn off the heat and allow the porridge to sit for a minute while the chia seeds soak up the milk (and it cools down enough to eat!).
Spoon your porridge into a bowl, slice the banana on top and scatter with blueberries. Drizzle with honey before serving.
