Peaches & Cream Porridge

Did a thing this morning that I haven’t done in absolutely ages, made dessert for breakfast! If you take a scroll through my ‘breakfast’ tag you will find many a concoction derived of my love for both breakfast and sweet things, such as Carrot Cake porridge, and today marks the first time since I have been bothered/have the time to come up with another! When I was with my best friend in America I had peaches & cream french toast at IHOP, and though it was amazing it gave me the shakes from how much sugar was in it, so I thought I’d recreate a slightly healthier version of that meal. I certainly enjoyed it so I hope you do too :)

I was also thinking of doing a sort of poll in the comments section on whether I do a sweet or savoury recipe next as I can never make my mind up – what would you prefer to have from me? I welcome specific suggestions too :)

Peaches & Cream Porridge

Peaches & Cream Porridge

A small handful of almonds

  1. Stir the oats, soy milk and vanilla until thick and creamy. Mix in the dried apricots and spoon into a bowl.
  2. Add the peaches on top with the almonds, then sprinkle the sugar on top.

  2. sorry but my english is… cof cof… not perfect. “Stir until thick” do you heat the misture? or it works with cold “milk”? (can one heat the porridge just because? I like warm food :) )
    about the vanilla extract, is dificult and expensive to buy a bio choise (or a real vanilla bean extract) so.. the flavour of vanilla beans will work? should I try with a 1/4 of teaspon to beggin or a half as you recomend?
    Sorry if I’m annoying!
    Thank you *


    • Don’t dare worry about being annoying, that’s what I’m here for! I was a bit unclear in the method – you stir the oats and milk in a pan over the heat, it will thicken into a warm creamy porridge in about five minutes. I’m not entirely sure what you mean about the vanilla question – I used half a teaspoon of liquid vanilla extract which only costs about a pound, but the pure vanilla beans I’ve never used before and they are quite expensive. Just use whichever you prefer and to your own taste, my recipes are only guidelines really :)

      • Hi!
        Thank you for your response. About vanilla, my problem is concernd with the possibilitie of being animal origin. I mean… I read a post a few months ago about the fact that “natural vanilla” could be extrated from a kind of beaver body part.
        I tried this recipe last week. I found it very sweet! :) Next time I will cut at vanilla bean and sugar! :P
        Thank you!
