This porridge recipe is for one person, feel free to double, triple or just multiply it!


For the oatmeal:

  • 1 big apple (I used boskoop apple)

  • 1 tbsp oatmeal

  • 1 tbsp oats

  • 1 tbsp millet flakes

  • 1 tbsp chia - or linseeds + 1,5 tbsp water

  • 1 tbs chopped almonds

  • 1 tbsp raisins

  • Half of a banana

  • 50-75 ml soy milk (or milk of choice)

  • 0,5 tsp cinnamon

  • 0,25 tsp bourbon vanilla

  • pinch of salt

For the lava filling:

  • 1 tbsp almond butter + 2 tbsp soy yogurt

  • 1 tbsp apricot jam


  1. Hollow out the apple and set aside.

  2. Mix the chia -or linseeds with 1,5 tbsp of water and let it thicken.

  3. Mash the banana.

  4. Put everything together in a mixing bowl and stir well.

  5. Preheat your oven to 200 degree Celsius.

  6. Mix almond butter with soy yogurt.

  7. Fill the apple with half of the oatmeal. Add half of the almond butter and yogurt mixture, then add the apricot jam and the rest of almond butter and yogurt mixture. Add the rest of the oatmeal and put the lid of your apple back on it.

  8. I sat my apple in an appropriate, ovenproof container to prevent it from topping over. Bake for 15-25 minutes, depending on how soft you want your apple to be.

  9. At least, sprinkle with some more cinnamon or sugar.
