Posted by Nick Sheridan on

As the mornings turn crisp and cool, there's nothing quite like a warm, comforting breakfast to fuel your day and chase away the chill. Here at 99th Monkey, we're all about making healthy eating delicious, and this is the perfect solution for those chilly mornings: Baked Weetbix Porridge with Salted Almond Butter and Frozen Raspberries.

This recipe is not only incredibly simple and requires minimal ingredients, but it's also packed with flavour and nutrition. Let's dive into why this baked porridge is the perfect way to conquer those cold mornings:

Simple Ingredients, Big Flavour

The beauty of this recipe lies in its simplicity. Here's what you'll need:

  • Weetbix: These whole wheat wheat biscuits are a classic breakfast staple in Australia and New Zealand. They offer a good source of complex carbohydrates for sustained energy, and their simple taste creates the perfect base for our flavour adventure.
  • Milk: Choose your favourite milk – dairy, almond, soy, oat – to add creaminess and essential vitamins and minerals like calcium and vitamin D.
  • Protein Powder: We recommend vanilla for a versatile flavour, but feel free to experiment with other flavours you enjoy. Protein powder adds a boost of protein to keep you feeling fuller for longer.
  • Baking Powder: A touch of baking powder helps the porridge rise slightly in the air fryer, creating a light and fluffy texture.
  • Frozen Raspberries: These little jewels of sweetness and tartness add a burst of flavour and a pop of colour to your breakfast. They're also packed with antioxidants and vitamins.
  • 99th Monkey Salted Almond Butter: The star of the show! Our creamy Salted Almond Butter adds a delightful touch of saltiness and nutty richness that elevates the entire dish.

Warm and Nourishing: Conquering the Chill

This baked porridge is more than just delicious, it's incredibly comforting on a cold morning. Here's why:

  • Warm and Toasty: The air fryer gently cooks the porridge, creating a warm and comforting breakfast that chases away the morning chill.
  • Creamy Comfort: The combination of milk, protein powder, and the Weetbix creates a creamy texture that's truly satisfying.
  • Nutritious Powerhouse: This porridge packs a nutritional punch. Weetbix provide complex carbs, protein powder fuels your muscles, milk offers essential vitamins and minerals, raspberries add antioxidants and vitamins and the almond butter offers essential healthy fats.

A Symphony of Flavours: Sweet, Tart, Salty, Nutty

The magic of this baked porridge lies in the delightful contrast of flavours:

  • Sweetness: The natural sweetness of the Weetbix is complemented by the tartness of the frozen raspberries and a touch of sweetness from the protein powder (depending on the flavour you choose).
  • Salty Delight: The touch of sea salt in our Salted Almond Butter cuts through the sweetness and adds a layer of complexity that truly elevates the flavour profile.
  • Nutty Richness: The creamy Salted Almond Butter adds a richness that balances the other flavours and creates a truly decadent taste experience.

The Beauty of Simplicity: A Recipe for Busy Mornings

One of the best things about this recipe is its simplicity. No fancy ingredients or complicated steps are required. Here's how to whip up this delicious breakfast in under 15 minutes:

  1. Soak it Up: In a bowl, crumble 3 Weetbix and pour in 200ml of your chosen milk. Let it soak for a couple minutes, allowing the Weetbix to soften.
  2. Power Up: Add a scoop of your favourite protein powder and stir well to combine.
  3. Lift it Up: Sprinkle in 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder and give it another good stir.
  4. Frozen Fun: Pour the mixture into an air fryer-safe dish and top with frozen raspberries.
  5. Bake to Perfection: Pop it in your air fryer at your desired temperature (around 180°C) for 8 minutes. This will cook the porridge and create a slightly golden brown crust.
  6. Salty Sweet Finish: Once cooked, remove the porridge from the air fryer and drizzle generously with our Salted Almond Butter.

So ditch the boring breakfast routine and embrace this warm and delicious Baked Weetbix Porridge! It's the perfect way to conquer those chilly mornings and fuel your day with a burst of flavour and nutrition.
