I have another healthy and super delicious breakfast recipe for you today. This Coconut Porridge with Caramelised Bananas is incredibly easy to make and is so comforting which it makes it perfect for this time of year.

Although we’re all trying to be healthy this January after the festivities it’s still cold, dark and chilly in the mornings and I don’t know about you but sometimes (most of the time) I need something warm and comforting to get me ready for the day ahead.

And that my friends is this porridge right here…

I absolutely love porridge but it’s gotta be sweet and this coconut porridge is just that. I cooked the porridge oats with coconut milk (the drinking kind not canned) instead of regular milk and added a little vanilla and brown sugar.

Whilst the porridge was cooking I sprinkled slices of banana with a little more brown sugar and fried them in coconut oil until caramelised and delicious. These bananas would also be perfect on top of some vanilla ice cream…YUM!

The porridge is topped with the caramelised bananas and some chia seeds then a good drizzle of runny honey. It tastes incredible!

You can also adjust the sweetness by adding more or less sugar according to your preference. I opted for as little as possible in the oats since there’s a lot of sweetness from the honey and bananas. You can also try adding a little maple syrup or cinnamon to sweeten and change it up a bit.

    I grew up eating porridge — and I love it. Those caramelized bananas look amazing, but I’m really interested in the coconut milk you used – great twist!

    A bowl of this would really lift my spirits about now. It’s freezing out side and I am experiencing a cold inside.
