Baked porridge casserole and bowl with porridge


It´s starting to get cold here in the south of Germany. Which means, I don´t want to get out of bed. And which means, I need something sweet, warming and energetic to help me start the day. And what a better way to start a cold morning with this winter morning porridge? This deliciously sweet and body-warming breakfast will definitely help you get out of bed.

I´m a huge fan of all kind of grains and pseudo-grains. Cold cereal too. Oats, buckwheat, rice, buckwheat flakes, millet, puffed quinoa…you name it. There are so many options and combinations to make a delicious porridge bowl. I´ve been having this winter morning porridge for weeks now and I still crave it when I wake up every saturday morning. I don´t have time to prepare it during the week, since I have to get up at 5.45am to go work, so I´m always looking forward to the weekend to enjoy this deliciousness again.

So this time I mixed some rice flakes with chopped fruits and almond milk, baked it for some minutes and then added some a few chopped walnuts on top. Glory. This winter morning porridge is comforting, warming, deliciously sweet and so satisfying. Definitely a wonderful breakfast for those days when you would rather stay in bed all day. You can totally skip the walnut topping if you are looking for a low fat version. I promise it still tastes amazing. I will keep trying more combinations for fun and variety but this porridge just hit the spot and is definitely going to be a breakfast staple!
