Baked porridge

Not everyone likes porridge! So, I often suggest baked porridge as it has a completely different texture. There’s 2 ways to do it and this way is best for those that think porridge is too ‘gloopy’!


  • 40g porridge oats
  • 1 egg
  • A drop of vanilla extract
  • About 100g yoghurt (choose plain soya if following a Low FODMAP diet, 0% greek yoghurt if looking for higher protein)

How to make it

  • Heat your oven to 180°C.
  • Mix the porridge ‪oats with the ‪egg, ‪yoghurt and ‪vanilla extract.
  • Place in an oven proof dish. Cook for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Serve with ‪natural yogurt and‪ at least 2 portions (160 grams) of fruit!


If you ate this with some 0% fat greek yoghurt and berries, this breakfast will offer up 20 grams of protein, 5 grams of fibre, 45 grams of carbohydrates and just over 500 kcal.
