This recipe makes 1 so multiply it by how many people you want it to serve.


  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup brewed coffee dependant on strength. Or you can add a teaspoon of instant in with the milk once its warm.
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup of milk of choice depending on how much coffee you used. The total liquid should total 1 cup. You may need a dash more if the porridge becomes too thick.
  • 40g oats
  • 1 – 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut sugar. You can adjust depending on taste. Swap for maple or an alternative sweetener if you prefer.
  • 1 1/2 – 2 teaspoons cacao or cocoa powder. We used cacao in ours.
  • Some of your favourite dark chocolate or maple syrup OR BOTH to finish the porridge off with.


  • Add the coffee, milk and oats to a pan and begin to heat gently. If you are using instant coffee then add it to the milk and oats when they have warmed up.
  • Keep stirring the oats until they are thick and creamy. Check the oats are cooked fully. If the mixture becomes too thick and/or the oats haven’t cooked fully then add a dash more milk and keep cooking until they are.
  • Serve with some chopped chocolate and/or maple.
