Rustic Apple-Walnut Oat Porridge

Embark on a culinary journey to the heart of Germany with this simple yet sumptuous recipe, blending the natural sweetness of apples with the earthy crunch of walnuts. A delightful bowl of warmth, perfect for any meal of the day.


  • 1 cup Rolled Oats
  • 50g Walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 2 Fresh Apples, cored and chopped
  • 60ml Water
  • Vanilla Extract, as preferred
  • Agave Nectar, as desired


  1. Prepare the Apples: Core and chop the apples into small pieces. For added texture and flavor, you can leave the skin on.
  2. Cook the Oatmeal: In a medium saucepan, combine the rolled oats and water. Stir gently on a medium heat until the mixture starts to simmer. Lower the heat and let it cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until the oats are soft and the mixture has thickened to your liking.
  3. Add the Apples: Once the oatmeal is nearly cooked, stir in the chopped apples. Continue to cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, allowing the apples to soften slightly and infuse their natural sweetness into the oatmeal.
  4. Enhance the Flavor: Add a dash of vanilla extract to the oatmeal, stirring well to distribute the flavor throughout the porridge. The amount of vanilla extract can be adjusted according to taste, adding a subtle or pronounced vanilla essence as desired.
  5. Sweeten the Porridge: Drizzle agave nectar over the oatmeal, sweetening it to taste. Agave nectar not only adds sweetness but also a mild, delicate flavor that complements the apples and vanilla beautifully.
  6. Add Crunch with Walnuts: Finally, sprinkle the roughly chopped walnuts over the oatmeal, adding a delightful crunch and nutty flavor to the dish. The walnuts also contribute healthy fats, making the porridge more satisfying.
  7. Serve Warm: Dish out the apple-walnut oat porridge into bowls while it’s still warm. Enjoy as is, or top with additional chopped apples, walnuts, or a drizzle more of agave nectar if desired.

This rustic apple-walnut oat porridge brings a piece of German culinary tradition to your table, combining wholesome ingredients in a simple, yet profoundly comforting dish. Whether you’re starting your day with a nutritious breakfast or need a cozy snack, this recipe is a testament to the joy of simple cooking.
