Apple Rhubarb Porridge

May-vember?? Yes, it’s still very rainy here in Ireland so this creamy warming porridge is the perfect start to the day. Rhubarb and apple are a delicious combination at this time of the year.
Porridge is such a healthy breakfast option and it’s guaranteed to keep the hunger at bay for a few hours. Great if you have a busy day ahead or are heading out for a hike or other form of movement.
Don’t omit the maple syrup, rhubarb needs a bit of sweetening or else it’s too tangy. You can replace apple juice with orange juice if that’s what you have.


  • 1 cup jumbo oats
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (almond milk is lovely here, but use whichever milk you prefer)
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 2 rhubarb sticks
  • 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • Flaked almonds
  • Chopped pistacchios
  1. Wash and cut the rhubarb into regular pieces of app. 1 cm.
  2. Add to a medium saucepan together with the oats, milk. apple juice, cinnamon and salt. Bring to a boil then reduce heat, cover with a lid and let it simmer for about 8-10 minutes until the oats and rhubarb have softened.
  3. During this time, lightly toast the flaked almonds. It’s worth toasting a bigger batch here and storing whatever you don’t need in a jar.
  4. Stir the maple syrup into the rhubarb oats.
  5. Serve in bowls and top with flaked almonds and some crushed pistacchios.
