Seasonal fruits and autumnal spices are the perfect start to the day this time of year!

prep time 10 mins total time 20 mins serves 2


  • 2 apples

  • 2 pears

  • 2 tsp cinnamon

  • Pinch of nutmeg

  • 2 cups porridge oats

  • 2 cups plant milk

  • 2 cups water

  • Maple syrup

  • Handful of cranberries/raisins





  1. Chop up your apples and pears into bite sized chunks.

  2. Add to a pan over medium heat, with 1 tsp of cinnamon, a pinch of nutmeg and a drizzle of maple syrup. Mix together and simmer.

  3. Meanwhile, start to cook your porridge by adding the oats and liquid into a pan, along with another tsp of cinnamon. Stir on a low to medium heat until creamy.

  4. Keep an eye on the fruit, adding a splash of water if it needs it. It’s ready when everything has softened and formed a sort of compote. The longer you cook it, the more it will reduce and soften.

  5. Serve everything together, with a sprinkling of cranberries and an extra drizzle of syrup.


  • This recipe can work with any fruit you fancy! I often do this with berries instead, and for the season blackberries could be perfect!
