THE cosiest way to start the day. Recipe adapted from Half Baked Harvest.


What you need:

  • 1 mug
  • Medium saucepan
  • Mixing bowl
  • Baking tray lined with baking paper
  • Food processor or blender
  • Optional: Five serve size airtight jars



Makes 4 serves

For the creamy oats:

  • 1 black tea bag + steeped in 1 cup of hot water
  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 3 cups full fat coconut cream
  • 2/3 cups water
  • 1 vanilla bean, seeds scraped or 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the maple roasted berries:

  • 2 cups frozen berries
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

For the pistachio cream:

  • 2/3 cup full fat coconut cream
  • 1/4 cup shelled pistachios
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup

To serve: 

Fresh raspberries, chopped pistachios and maple syrup



  1. Preheat oven to 170°C. Steep the tea bags in hot water for 5 minutes. In the medium saucepan, pour the tea, add the rest of the porridge ingredients and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook until the oats are soft (around 30 minutes). Keep checking it and add a bit of coconut cream, almond milk or water if it starts to dry out.
  1. Meanwhile, toss the berries and maple syrup in a mixing bowl and place onto the prepared baking tray. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the berries are bubbling. Set aside.
  1. Blend the pistachios and coconut cream in a high speed blender until smooth. You’ll need to scrape the sides down to ensure it blends properly.
  1. To serve: Serve the porridge warm, top with maple roasted berries and a good drizzle of pistachio cream. Top with whatever extras you like, I used fresh raspberries, chopped pistachios and maple syrup.



Porridge and roasted berries will keep in (separate) air tight containers for up to five days.
