  • ⅓ cup rolled oats (35g)

  • 1 cup milk or water

  • ¼ tsp cinnamon

  • 1 cup diced red papaya (150g)

  • 1 tbsp sliced almonds (10g)

  • 1 tbsp almond butter

  • 2 tbsp natural yoghurt


  • Add oats, milk and cinnamon to a saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer 3 – 4 minutes until thickened, then stir through half the diced red papaya.

  • Spoon porridge into a serving bowl, top with almonds, almond butter, yoghurt and remaining red papaya.


Different styles of oats require different amounts of liquid. If you prefer a thicker porridge, or aren’t sure about the brand in your pantry, start with a bit less liquid then add more as it cooks.
