I’m such a fan of Jamie Oliver’s new cookbook Everyday Super Food, especially the delicious breakfast recipes. This recipe for Toasted Oats, Mango, Blueberries & Yoghurt really stood out as it has only a few ingredients and is super quick to whip up. It has the lovely addition of fennel seeds and coconut which makes the flavour complex and interesting for a simple little bowl of oats. An absolute winner, I’ll be making this again for sure and maybe experiment a bit with the flavour combinations. If you don’t already have a copy of Jamie’s new cookbook, get on to it!


Serves 1

1 handful of porridge oats (50g)
1 level teaspoon fennel seeds
1 heaped teaspoon coconut flakes
2 heaped tablespoons natural yoghurt
1 small handful of blueberries
optional: rose water (I sadly ran out, so had to pass on this yummy addition)

1 small ripe mango
a banana (I used half)
a lime
optional: manuka honey ( I didn’t add any)


  1. Put the oats into a small frying pan on a medium heat with the fennel seeds and coconut and toast until lightly golden and smelling delicious, tossing regularly. Tip into your bowl and spoon the yoghurt on top.
  2. Return the pan to the heat. Place the blueberries in with a good splash of water and a few drips of rose water (if using), which will add an incredible perfumed flavour. Simply boil for a couple of minutes until the berries burst and you have a loose sauce, then spoon over the yoghurt.
  3. Slice one of the cheeks off the mango and cut a criss-cross pattern into the flesh, making sure you don’t go all the way through, then turn it inside out so all the pieces pop up into a mango hedgehog (keep the rest of the mango for another day). Peel and slice the banana, then dress both mango and banana with a squeeze of lime juice. Add to your bowl and tuck right in. Great as it is, or if you like you can drizzle 1 teaspoon of honey over the top before serving.
