As the autumn hedgerows heave with delicious blackberries, our foraging efforts often find us with baskets a-brimming. One of our favourite ways to celebrate these nutritionally rich berries is to pair their vibrant colour with a gently spiced porridge. The addition of almond butter and apple in this recipe makes for a truly comforting bowl to warm your hands around as the weather turns cooler.
METHODDIFFICULTY: Easy 10 MINS
Combine the jumbo porridge oats, almond milk, salt and allspice in a pan. Heat slowly, stirring all the time, until the porridge is thick and creamy.
Meanwhile, place the blackberries in a separate pan with the water and honey and bring to a simmer. Lightly crush the blackberries with the back of a spoon and continue to simmer until the liquid has reduced by around a quarter and the coulis is syrupy.
Divide the porridge between two bowls and pour over the coulis. Top with the apple, almond butter and additional toppings of your choice.
