Delicious Alchemy Quick Cook Original Porridge Oats

Delicious Alchemy Quick Cook Original Porridge Oats

Now winter is most definitely with us and the mornings and evenings are most definitely colder, what’s better than tucking into a hot bowl of porridge? However, not all porridge oats are gluten-free, but that’s where Delicious Alchemy come in with their Quick Cook Original Porridge Oats.

Delicious Alchemy Quick Cook Original Porridge OatsDelicious Alchemy’s Quick Cook Original Porridge Oats are both gluten and dairy free, so perfect for someone like me. They are also suitable for vegetarians and high in fibre and may not be suitable for everyone with coeliac disease. Delicious Alchemy recommend adding oats slowly to your diet and if you’re unsure, talk to your healthcare professional before trying.

The box of Delicious Alchemy’s Quick Cook Original Porridge Oats contains 8 individual sachets, each containing a perfect amount of oats to make a nice bowl of porridge.

The porridge is quick and easy to make, and can be cooked in either the microwave or on the hob. I prefer to use the hob. You simply empty the contents of 1 sachet into a pan, then fill the sachet to the fill line with water, milk or a dairy free alternative (approx. 160ml) and empty into the pan and stir thoroughly. I prefer to use Lactofree Whole Milk. Cook until the oats are broken down and creamy (this is usually a couple of minutes after the mixture has started to boil).

Once piping hot, pour the porridge into a bowl and customise to your taste. I like to add brown sugar and some cold Lactofree Whole Milk, but you can add honey, strawberry jam, golden syrup or whatever you like.

So, can you tell the difference between this and the usual porridge brands? The simple answer… No! As per the brand’s name, it tastes delicious and gives you a lovely warm feeling. I’ve gone through all 8 sachets in the box and I’ll definitely be buying some more.

Delicious Alchemy also do Original Instant Porridge Oats and Golden Syrup Flavour Instant Porridge Oats in a pot – ideal for when you’re on the go or on holiday. They think of everything!

    I don’t like porridge, I wish I did as it seems like a brilliant breakfast for winter, wholesome and warming. Glad you’ve found something you enjoy and that fits in with your diet.

  2. Hi Nikki,

    I haven’t had a bowl of porridge for breakfast for years, although for convenience (and as a change to a sandwich), I quite often have the potted variety for lunch, to which I simply add hot water and mix.

    I have to admit though, that my version isn’t always the most healthy option, as I am not too keen on plain porridge, so will always opt for a flavoured solution, such as golden syrup, or apple and sultana.

    As I seem to have the constitution of a horse, needing to source gluten free, is thankfully not something I have to do, although I know just the person who might be interested in ‘Delicious Alchemy’ products, I’ll pass on the web details when I see her tomorrow 🙂

    Thanks for sharing,

    I have oats for breakfast every weekday morning – made with soy milk to which I’ve added cinnamon and cardamom. Once they’re cooked (I buy the “old fashion” oats, so they take 5 minutes once they’ve come to a boil) I stir in some ground flax seed and a banana (or dried dates).

    It’s interesting that these are gluten-free, but fortunately I don’t have to worry about that.
