This quick, creamy, and nutrient-packed breakfast cereal will surprise you. As usual for oatmeal, it's very filling and the almond butter provides sustaining energy. (You can easily halve or double this amount for your required number of servings.)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring the oats and liquids to a boil, and reduce heat to just keep up a gentle bubbling.
  2. Stir frequently for 5-8 minutes, till thick and creamy. Careful it doesn't stick!
  3. If time permits, remove from heat and let sit, covered, 2-3 minutes.
  4. Dollop in the almond and apple butters and stir well, making sure they're thouroughly blended with the oatmeal. Split between two bowls and serve.
  5. You can add your favorite hot porridge toppings, if you like: sweetener depending on how much sugar is already in your almond/apple butter, or ground flax or other nuts or seeds- or just a sprinkle of cinnamon, if your apple butter isn't spiced. Experiment and enjoy!

I stirred more almond butter into this, and it gave it a really good almond-y flavor. I had to sub raspberry jam (just scooped it on top) for the apple butter, since I was out.

Excellent oatmeal. I used almond milk and added some chopped dried papaya pieces which made a great match with the tart apple butter. Also I topped with two tablespoons home made sheep vanilla yoghurt. I will make this again! Thanks for sharing.

I just love oatmeal and this was a nice change from my regular oatmeal. Love the combination of almond butter and apples. Thanks for posting this White Rose Child. Made for New Kids on the Block Tag.
