A warming bowl of porridge is the perfect Autumn Breakfast. Adding in a scoop of protein powder at the end of cooking ensures sufficient protein to keep you energised through the morning. I like to add a spoonful of nut butter for a creamy texture too.

Protein porridge


Serves 1

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 5-10 minutes


What’s Good About It?

Oats are rich in fibre and also higher in protein and fat than many other grains. Choose gluten free oats if needed. Any nut butter could be added to this porridge.


  1. Place the water and oats with a pinch of salt in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer and stir constantly. Once the porridge has thickened (about 3-4 minutes) stir in the nut butter and cinnamon if using and beat well.
  2. Take off the heat and beat in the protein powder.
  3. Spoon into bowls and top with a handful of berries to serve.
