About the Recipe

There's nothing more comforting than a hot bowl of porridge on a cold winter morning, and this chia porridge hits just the spot. If you're a fan of chia pudding, you're going to be all over this.
With the added spices of nutmeg and cinnamon and a lovely sweetness and plum flavour from the spiced plum butter, the banana and fresh apple bring a freshness and crunch that's great with the smoothness of the porridge.
Feel free to swap these out for your favourite fruits; pear, peach, blueberries, or even extra fresh plum would all work well. Prepare this on a Sunday evening and have delightful warm breakfasts ready to go for the week!



  • 35g flax seeds

  • 80g chia seeds

  • 50g desiccated coconut

  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

  • Pinch of sea salt

  • Pinch of ground nutmeg

  • 400ml milk of your choice

To Serve (per serve):

  • 1 tbsp honey or to taste

  • More milk to thin to desired consistency

  • 1/4 small apple, diced

  • 1/2 banana, sliced

  • Toasted coconut flakes


The Night Before

  1. In a bowl, place the chia seeds, flax seeds, desiccated coconut, and spices. Mix well.

  2. Add the milk of your choosing and stir well, making sure there are no lumps or clumps. A whisk works quite well.

  3. Wrap and leave in the fridge overnight.

To Serve

  1. Scoop the desired amount of the chia mix and place in a small saucepan. Add extra milk to thin to the desired consistency. I like mine fairly thick, so I keep it similar in consistency to custard.

  2. Place on medium heat and gently bring to boiling, stirring every now and again to prevent sticking.

  3. While heating the porridge, get the toppings ready. Slice half a banana, roughly chop the apple, and toast the coconut flakes in a dry frying pan on high heat for a few minutes.

  4. Get the spiced plum butter and give it a good mix to loosen it. Otherwise, you'll end up with large mouthfuls of just plum butter, trust me on this one 😅.

  5. Once the porridge is bubbling on the edges and heated through, add the honey and stir through. Pour into your favourite breakfast bowl and top with your prepared toppings!
