Oat & chia porridge with prunes


Oat & chia porridge with prunes

Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 5 mins (plus overnight soaking)
Serves 2


  • 6 prunes
  • few pinches ground cinnamon
  • 50g traditional oats
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 300ml bio yogurt
  • milk, for diluting (optional)
  • 2 small pears, cored and thickly sliced
  • 2 tsp sunflower or pumpkin seeds (optional)


  1. The night before, put the prunes in a small pan with the cinnamon. Cover scantily with water and bring to the boil, then simmer for 5 mins. Tip into a bowl and set aside to soak overnight.
  2. Put a kettle full of water on to boil. Tip the oats and chia seeds into a bowl, pour over 300ml boiling water then stir well. Cover and leave to soak overnight too.
  3. The next morning, stir the vanilla and half the yogurt into the oat mixture then dilute to the consistency you like best with a little milk or water if necessary. Spoon into bowls and top with the remaining yogurt, the prunes, pears and seeds, if using, then dust with a little more cinnamon, if you like.
