When I shared my baked porridge recipe, a close friend of mine mentioned that he and his family love baked porridge with custard. I found the idea intriguing, and that's how this variation came to be.
Amazin' Graze's Rolled Oats, Walnuts and Chia Seeds
This nourishing meal is perfect for breakfast or as a dessert and requires less than 30 minutes to prepare. The oven does most of the work for you. Feel free to use your favorite nuts in this recipe. Personally, I find that walnuts pair well with apples. However, you can also try using peaches or explore other fruit options. The possibilities are quite extensive.
In my opinion, this version surpasses the original baked porridge recipe in terms of its body and texture. I encourage you to give this recipe a try and be the judge yourself.
