Here’s a family-friendly breakfast must-have that incorporates seasonal blood oranges – which are rich in vitamin C to keep your immune system fighting fit, and whole grain-rich oats that are a source of fibre to keep your digestive system on track right from the start of your day.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 8 blood oranges, peeled, deseeded, quartered
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 ½ cups UNCLE TOBYS Traditional Rolled Oats
  • 2 cups skim milk
  • 1 tsp water
  • 4 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp natural Greek yoghurt, to serve
  • 2 tbsp almonds roughly chopped, to serve
  • 2 tbsp blood orange zest, to serve


  1. To make your chia jam, place the blood orange pieces in a medium-sized pot on medium heat and stir occasionally. Use a fork to roughly mash them. Once the oranges break down, add the chia seeds and maple syrup, and stir until well combined. Remove from the heat. Place chia jam into a container and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to allow the chia to set.
  2. Meanwhile, place the oats in medium-sized pot with milk, water and cinnamon and cook over medium heat. Bring the oat mixture to boil, then allow to simmer on low-medium heat for 5-8 minutes until oats are soft and creamy, stirring continuously. Add more water or milk to achieve your desired consistency.
  3. Once oats are cooked, divide evenly into bowls, top with one tablespoon of chia jam, a dollop of natural Greek yoghurt and sprinkle with crushed almonds, blood orange zest and a drizzle of maple syrup or honey.


Remaining chia jam can be stored in fridge for up to 5 days.

  • Interesting variation on an everyday standard.


  • Lovely ingredients and a nice recipe.


  • I love porridge and actually often have it for morning tea.


  • I love plain porridge cooked using milk and nothing else. I’m sure this is delicious though


  • Porridge is my favourite and I wish my kids liked it too. Only the youngest one eats it.


  • An incredible looking porridge, sounds delicious with maple syrup and blood oranges.


  • Looks nice ! Wondering if 4 tablespoons of cinnamon is not a bit much ?


  • We eat a lot of oats in winter and this looks delicious. Even just to try the chia jam.


  • I’m not a huge porridge fan, and if I do it’s simply the instant version from a packet and in the microwave!

    • Porridge is perfect breakfast food. Instant porridge can be good for camping trips.


  • Rolled oats is my favourite breakfast. I dont feel the need for additions, but this bowl does look yummy
