One of the best things about winter is the excuse to indulge in some yummy, tummy warming porridge. But you’ve got to do it right!

Our fitness experts, the BUF Girls share 3 healthy recipe ideas from their favourite #InstaFoodies to kick start your day.

Carrot Cake Oats by @thenutritioncollective

Serves 1

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 finely grated carrot
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1/2 teaspoon stevia
  • 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon coconut
  • 1 tablespoon of sultanas
  • 2 tablespoons of Greek yoghurt

Combine the oats, almond milk, carrot, stevia, cinnamon, vanilla in a small saucepan and allow to soak overnight (overnight is best to allow the oats to soften and expand for optimal digestion but if time poor you can skip this step and just mix it all together).

Place the saucepan over a medium heat. Gently cook the oats stirring with a wooden spoon for 7-8 minutes or until the porridge begins to thicken. If the mixture looks a little dry add in dash more almond milk. The porridge will start to stick to the spoon when it is ready.

Remove from the heat and allow to stand for 30 seconds. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with Greek yogurt, sultanas, walnuts and coconut.
