Salted caramel porridge with sticky oranges

Sunday, 19 April 2015

Porridge season may be coming to a close but I had to share this recipe with you. I think I may have reached the pinnacle of my porridge making career with this one!

I use dates a lot in my cooking, they develop into deep sticky caramel flavour when heated and are a great natural sweetener. The salt in this recipe offsets the sweetness brilliantly making sure it's not sickly, salted caramel is such a winning combination.

My salted caramel porridge with sticky oranges can be made in less than 5 minutes and is super healthy but tastes oh so indulgent - enjoy!


1/2 cup of porridge oats (I use gluten free but normal are fine)
1 cup of almond milk
1/2 tsp maca (optional)
1 medjool date cut into small chunks (if you have a sweet tooth feel free to use more!)
1 pinch of sea salt
1/2 large orange cut into thin slices
1 tsp coconut oil
1 tsp rice malt syrup (can use maple syrup/ honey etc)


  1. In a pan heat the porridge oats, almond milk, maca, medjool date and sea salt. Use a low heat and stir until thick. Alternatively heat in the microwave - I do this on low energy days! 
  2. Meanwhile in a frying pan heat the coconut oil, then add the orange slices. Turn occasionally until brown. 
  3. Pour the porridge into a bowl, top with the oranges and drizzle with the rice malt syrup
I'd love to hear from you if you give this a go.

Happy Sunday,
