  • Yummo! Used coconut milk

    Yummo! Used coconut milk instead, left out the almonds (only because of my fussy eaters...) & this was deliciously good!! Added a few blueberries at the end too. Yum yum, thanks for posting.

  • My kids love porridge, and

    My kids love porridge, and this is a family favourite around here now! My 6 year old girls will even take this to school for recess in winter in a thermos food jar. We were just making it with almonds and dates, and recently thought we'd change it up a bit and add coconut. This is now the favourite flavour combination! Definitely better than plain old porridge tmrc_emoticons.;) I don't usually weigh the coconut, dates or almonds in, I usually just add a handful of each. But the measurements are as close I could guess. You could adjust to your tastes tmrc_emoticons.)
