A divine GF & vegan breakfast! Yummy too!

A divine GF & vegan breakfast! Oat Apple porridge with coconut sufar caramelized apple chunks!

Recipe: For 1 person


** For the GF porridge:

60 gr Gluten-Free oats

360 ml unsweetened soy milk

1/2 pink Lady apple, peeled, cored & finely grated

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon of powdered coconut sugar

** For the caramelized apples:

1 + 1/2 pink lady apple, peeled, cored & cut into bite-sized chunks

1 tablespoon of powdered coconut sugar

knobs of vegan GF butter


1. First, make your GF oat porridge. Pour unsweetened soy milk in a medium cooking pot & bring to the boil. Add GF oats & stir. Cook your oats until they have absorbed most of the milk, stirring often. This took me 8 minutes or so.Turn heat lower if you need to. While the GF oats are cooking, add 1/2 grated apple & stir. Add 1 tablespoon of powdered coconut sugar & let it melt into the hot mix. When your GF oat porridge is ready, take of the heat & add 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon & stir into the mix. Taste! It has to taste great!

2. In the meantime, take a medium non-stick pan & heat up on medium high. Add a few knobs of vegan & GF butter & let it melt. When hot & melted, add apple chunks & fry for about 5 minutes, turning once & when they are beginning to soften, add 1 tablespoon of powdered coconut sugar & let it melt. Turn apple chunks over & see that they get coated by the sugar. Cook them for another 5 to 8 minutes until ready, browned on all sides & cooked through. Do not let the apple chunks burn! Lower the heat if you need to!!! They will caramelize well!! MMM!

3. Now, plate up! Place all of the GF porridge in a lovely clean bowl & top with the caramelized apple chunks! Dive in instantly! Happy eating!

  18. narf77 says:

    We are just starting to feel the cool tendrils of winter coming on and this magnificent post can’t come too soon…any more delicious recipes will be MOST welcome Sophie! πŸ™‚

  19. Bernice says:

    This just looks wonderful Sophie! I never had porridge – maybe it is like oatmeal?

    • Sophie33 says:

      Porridge vs Oatmeal

      Oatmeal is a kind of porridge. Any grain served hot in the shape of a cereal is porridge.

      Oatmeal is made by processing oats. Oatmeal could consist of crushed oats, rolled oats, or cut oats in oatmeal cookies, or they could be mere coarsely ground oats.

      Porridge on the other hand is a basic dish which is made by boiling crushed oats or another meal in either water or milk. Other meals used for porridge include wheat, rice, peasemeal, barley and cornmeal.

  20. Starr says:

    I made porridge today too, though mine didn’t look (nor I’m sure taste) nearly as delicious as yours. Those caramelized apple look absolutely mouthwatering!

  21. Canada Jenny says:

    yummy! I’m going to have to make this for the girls. We have porridge a few times a week so I will definitely try this.

  22. Carolyn Jung says:

    I want this for breakfast tomorrow! This definitely looks hearty enough to tide me over until a late lunch, too.

  23. Sophie– I want to try this on our oatmeal– but I have never heard of coconut sugar!! Can I use regular or brown sugar instead? It looks yummy.

    • Sophie33 says:

      What is coconut sugar?
      Coconut blossom sugar is an alternative sweetener. It is beet sugar-free. It is also called Gula Java Brut. This is 100% unsweetened coconut blossom sugar. It is slighty brown in colour. It has a lower glycemic index than agave. It’s GI index is 35. Agave is 40. It also has a lot of minerals and vitamins.

      Gula Java is coconut blossom sugar from Java. Harvested by tapers high in the coconut trees, the sweet nectar from the coconut blossom is a cherished resource. Above the log fire, the nectar slowly changes into a delicious, unrefined rich sugar as it is gently stirred in the pan, allowing you to enjoy its sweetness and soft caramel flavour at any time of the day.

      But it isn’t as sweet as normal sugar. It is great in cobbler’s, in crumbles, in cakes, in desserts, etc. You can also use it in savoury dishes.
      I made a few recipes with it and I love it. It is also great in unsweetened yoghurt,… it adds a nice crunch.
      I use it in nearly all my recipes, it is expensive though & I buy it in my food health shop like Bioplanet! I now use podered coconut sugar! For finer results!

      A recipe using it :

  24. Tandy says:

    I would love a bowl right now Sophie πŸ™‚

  25. boeddhamum says:

    My favourite breakfast, yummie!

  26. I had oatmeal for breakfast, but it was nowhere near as fancy as this! Looks delish!

  27. Norma Chang says:

    A most delicious way to start the day.

  28. Somer says:

    Sounds like a really comforting and hearty breakfast!

  29. I’m diggin’ those apples, Sophie! So nicely browned!

  30. What a great starter to the day Sophie – “power porridge” πŸ™‚

  31. The caramelized apples look like such a treat all by themselves! This recipe is pure comfort.

  32. Blond Duck says:

    I love anything with apples!

  33. gotastΓ© says:

    This is such a creative recipe Sophie, I love the caramelized apples! They must be really good! πŸ™‚

  34. MaryMoh says:

    That looks very healthy, perfect for breakfast. Your caramelised apples look very inviting. I probably can eat a bowl of it without the oat πŸ˜€

  35. Juliana says:

    What a delicious breakfast Sophie…and yes the caramelized apples on top of the oats look great.
    Hope you are having a wonderful week πŸ™‚
