Delicious banana almond butter porridge

Okay, I’m just gonna start by saying that if you love bananas and almond butter, you have to try this banana almond butter porridge. I have so much fun experimenting with different porridge variations and of course, I share the best ones here on the blog with you.

This one is a variation of a choc nut butter porridge that I first came across a few years ago on Dan Churchill’s website. That recipe instantly became one of my favourites, and then I started playing around with my own variations.

Banana almond butter porridge with melted chocolate

Topping idea: crumble up a piece of dark chocolate next to the almond butter. Let it melt a little bit, and then stir it through your porridge.

I also usually alternate my fruit between banana and strawberries, they both go equally as well with the almond butter – and chocolate!

As always, add any of your favourite toppings, and don’t forget to tag me on Instagram with your pics @wendyswaytohealth. Or share in the Wendy’s Way Community Facebook group, so we can all be inspired.





The coconut milk I use makes this porridge recipe really creamy, and it’s great for vegans and vegetarians.

If you do use a different milk, it’s easier to add after you pour the oatmeal mixture into your bowl.
