Dairy-Free Breakfast: Apple and Raisin Porridge

Dairy-Free Breakfast: Apple and Raisin Porridge

This dairy-free breakfast apple and raisin porridge is perfect if you need a quick, healthy breakfast. Personally, I’m not an egg eater. Not for health reasons – I think eggs are one of the healthiest, most versatile and convenient foods on the planet. I just don’t like them.

Then there’s milk. Again, not for health reasons, I just don’t particularly like most dairy products. I don’t really drink milk and wouldn’t eat cream if you paid me.

So all of this leaves me with a bit of an issue with breakfast…

  1. All egg-based options are out.
  2. Breakfast cereals are often crap, plus I’m not a milk fan.
  3. I’m up early every day, so I’m not cooking at that time.

This leads me down a different avenue for my breakfast options. Typically, I go with smoothies, fruit and if I have time on the weekends, a high-protein option.

If I’m training in the morning and could do with the extra carbs, I go with this dairy-free breakfast – apple and raisin porridge. It’s simple to make, low in fat and is a great start to the day.

Step 1: Oats in a bowl and pour enough pure apple juice to just cover the oats.
