  • 300g Nairn’s Scottish Porridge Oats
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 500ml milk or milk alternative (coconut works well)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 12 -15 frozen cherries (you can chop them up or leave them whole)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup (plus extra to serve)
  • 1 can coconut milk , chilled
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 200 C / 180 C Fan. Grease baking tray/dish.
  2. In a bowl, mix the Nairn’s Porridge Oats, salt, baking powder, cocoa powder.
  3. Add the milk, vanilla, maple syrup and cherries and mix again.
  4. Pour mixture into your baking dish, evenly filling it. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the middle has set and a knife comes out clean.
  5. Whilst the baked oats cool you can make the coconut whipped cream. Scoop the set coconut milk from the can, it should have separated from the oil underneath whilst it chilled. Add to a bowl, the add the icing sugar and vanilla and whisk until stiff peaks form.
