Servings 2 servings


  • 1 sweet potato 400g
  • 100 g rolled oats
  • 300 ml plant milk
  • 1 banana large
  • 1 tbsp agave syrup
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • handful of almonds
  • 2 tsp peanut butter


  • Bring a pot of water to a boil. In the meantime, peel the sweet potato and cut into little cubes. Cook the sweet potato for ~ 5 minutes until soft and you can mash it with a fork.
  • While the potato is cooking, you can prepare the other ingredients. Mash half of the banana, cut the second half into thin slices.
  • Combine rolled oats, plant milk, mashed banana, agave syrup, cinnamon and salt in a bowl.
  • When the sweet potato is cooked, remove the water and add back into the pot. Mash until there are no chunks left.
  • Add in the remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer. Let simmer for 5-10 minutes until the oats are soft and the liquid is absorbed.
  • Divide the porridge between two bowls. Top with the remaining banana, crushed almonds and peanut butter and enjoy warm.


You could also use buckwheat groats or quinoa instead of rolled oats but you may need to adjust the cooking time.
