Essential ingredients

120g oats

360ml milk

4 dates, sliced

1 tbsp warm water

3 tbsp maple syrup

2 bananas, sliced

1 tbsp coconut oil

Toppings: almonds, almond butter, milled flaxseed, yoghurt (natural or almond)


  1. Pour the oats and milk into a saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer until thick and creamy, around 8 minutes. Add in more milk, if needed.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, and add 2 tablespoons of the maple syrup. Once it is starting to bubble, place the banana slices gently into the pan. After 3 minutes, turn the slices over and fry for a further 3 minutes.
  3. To make the date paste, pop the sliced dates in a food processor with the warm water, and one tablespoon of maple syrup. Blend to a paste.
  4. Serve the porridge topped with the date paste and caramelised bananas. Also top with almonds, almond butter, milled flaxseed, and yoghurt!
