Creamy Oat Bran Porridge

Once you try this Creamy Oat Bran Porridge, you may never go back to traditional oatmeal again. This make-ahead breakfast is the nourishment you need to get your mornings going!
Vegetarian | Vegan | Gluten Free
Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (94g) oat bran
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups plant-based milk of your choice
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

Topping Suggestions

  • 1 small banana sliced
  • 1/4 cup walnuts toasted
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • additional milk for serving

Instructions

  • In a medium saucepan, over medium high heat, add the oat bran and whisk continuously for just under a minute, or until you begin to smell it toasting. 
  • Add the water and the milk while whisking constantly to keep the oat bran from clumping. The pot will sizzle a bit with the addition of cold liquids. 
  • Continue whisking as the mixture comes to a full boil. Reduce the heat just a bit to keep things simmering and continue to cook for 3 minutes, whisking frequently, or better yet…constantly. 
  • Serve in bowls with a splash of additional milk and your choice of toppings. Any remaining oat bran can be stored in the refrigerator for up to five days.

Notes

When making this for the first time, use 1 1/2 cups of plant-based milk. Increase, up to 2 cups, to desired consistency.
If you are gluten sensitive, be sure that your oat bran is labeled gluten-free.
