Oat Porridge
Donna Griffith

It's no secret that I love oats. I also love the holiday season! There is something about cuddling up indoors with loved ones that makes me feel so cozy inside. I make this dish throughout the year and it always reminds me of those special celebrations.

  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • 2 tablespoons oat bran
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds*
  • 1 tablespoon cracked flaxseed
  • 8 dates, chopped roughly
  • 8 prunes, chopped roughly
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground clove
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Low-fat milk or milk replacement, for serving


Place all of the ingredients except for the milk in a medium-sized saucepan with 3 cups water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to a gentle simmer, stirring occasionally. Cook for 10 minutes for a chewier texture and 12 minutes for a softer texture.

Remove from heat, cover, and let sit for 3 minutes. Serve hot with low-fat kefir, low-fat milk, or milk replacement, such as soy, rice, or almond milk.
