Having Berry and Syrup Porridge for breakfast is a warm and comforting way to start your day. It’s a nutritious and filling meal that’s packed with whole grains, and naturally sweetened with maple syrup.

It’s made on the stove and can be enjoyed right away or stored for enjoying tomorrow. So much yummier than store-bought oatmeal without all the sugar and preservatives, this is the recipe you’ve been looking for!

I’m a fan of yummy breakfast ideas! If you are too, then try my Vegan Pancakes (light and fluffy!). For a simple breakfast smoothie idea, you can make this 3-ingredient Green Juice recipe in minutes!


Units Scale
  • 1 cup of brown rice
  • 1/2 cup of pearl barley
  • 1/2 of steel cut oats
  • 5 cups of water
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons of maple syrup

Serve with

  • 1/4 cup of hazelnuts
  • 3/4 cup of vanilla yoghurt
  • 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 60 grams of blackberries
  • 60 grams of raspberries
  • 60 grams of strawberries


  1. In a pot add the rice, pearl barley, steel cut oats, water, cinnamon, vanilla and salt.
  2. Place on a medium heat; bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat to low, allow to simmer for 40 minutes or until the grains are tender. Ensure you stir occasionally to prevent sticking to the pan.
  4. Mix in the milk and maple syrup. Stir for roughly 5 minutes.
  5. Serve porridge in a bowl, top with hazelnuts, maple syrup, berries and cinnamon.


  • You can make this recipe the night before, stopping before you add the milk and syrup. Place the porridge in the fridge without the toppings.
    Reheat with milk in a pan or in the microwave for 1.5-2 minutes (depending on your serving size).
  • Store left over porridge in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Stir through extra milk and serve with your toppings.
  • You can pick and choose whatever fruit or berries you want.
  • If you don’t have maple syrup or can’t find it, you can use any type of syrups such as honey or golden syrup (in Australia)
