Porridge with Plum Butter & Roasted Almonds

How about a breakfast porridge to celebrate spring this year? I got inspired by the flowers surrounding us with the harvest from last autumn- I’ve created an easy, yet delicious spread and topped it off with roasted almonds for that extra crunch and beautiful, nutty aroma. 

Spring Porridge with Plum Butter & Roasted Almonds

Yield 1 serving


250 g almonds (more or less)

1 dl quick oats

2 dl milk

1/2 tsp salt

A pinch of cinnamon


  1. Make the Plum Butter
  2. Roast your almonds on 180 degrees celcius for 15 minutes. Let cool.
  3. Add oats, milk, salt and cinnamon to a saucepan and boil until thick-ish. You want the porridge to be slightly loose as it will thicken when it cools. 
  4. Add the porridge to a bowl.
  5. Roughly chop the almonds.
  6. Add a nice amount of Plum Butter to the porridge and add roasted almonds.
  7. Enjoy!
