Autumn is in full swing and with the weather being a bit more crisp and cold in the mornings, we think this calls for a warming bowl of Oat Pantry Porridge.

Ingredients:

6 plums
4 tbsp coconut sugar
3 tbsp water
2 tbsp orange juice
1 cinnamon stick optional

Method:

1. Wash, de-stone and halve the plums (leave the skin on).
2. Place the coconut sugar, water, orange juice and cinnamon stick into a medium-sized pot over a medium heat and simmer, stirring occasionally until the sugar dissolves.
3. Add the plums and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until the fruit is soft and begins to break down. Keep an eye on it as very ripe plums will cook faster and will get mushier. You want the plums to still be intact, but be soft and cooked through.
4. Remove and discard the cinnamon stick.

We topped our Oat Pantry Maple & Pecan Porridge (we which made with unsweetened almond milk) with our hot off the stove stewed plums, crumbled pistachios, pumpkin seeds and a drizzle of maple syrup.
