Cake for breakfast? It's a date! Super quick to make, filling and packed-full of healthy ingredients, this Sticky Toffee Porridge is a breakfast dream!

Total time

10 minutes






  • 25 g porridge oats
  • 200 l water or almond milk
  • 1 tsp ground almond
  • ½ tsp cane syrup or treacle
  • 10 dates
  • a few almonds (roughly chopped)


  1. Place the dates in a bowl. Cover with boiling water and soak for 10-15 minutes. Remove the dates from the soaking water (save the water for later) and peel them. Place the flesh in a food processor and blend until smooth and lump-free, adding a bit of the soaking water if necessary.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the oats, water, ground almond and cane syrup. Cook for 2-3 min or until it thickens.
  3. In a glass, layer the porridge and date caramel, top with a light sprinkle of chopped almonds and serve immediately.
