Simple Coconut and Oat Porridge

I came up with this porridge recipe because I wanted to have the convenience of cooking porridge in the microwave, and the creaminess of porridge made with plant milk, but I found that porridge cooked with plant milk didn’t cook well in the microwave for me.  It uses desiccated coconut to give the porridge the creaminess and flavour of coconut milk, and is really handy to make if you don’t have any milk in the house.  It tastes great, is healthy, made with only 3 ingredients and only takes a few minutes.  You can add berries, seeds or anything else you want to it, but for this post I wanted to just share this very simple recipe.




1 cup of porridge oats (gluten-free if required)

1.5 heaped tablespoons of unsweetened desiccated coconut

Drizzle of agave syrup or other vegan sweetener


How it’s made:

Put the porridge oats and desiccated coconut in a microwavable container.

Add 2 cups of water and mix.

Microwave on high power for 3 minutes or until cooked.

Stir, put in a serving bowl and drizzle with agave syrup or other vegan sweetener.

Serve immediately, with your choice of toppings.
