Baked Tigernut Porridge: A Quick, Easy and Healthy Recipe!
This vegan tigernut porridge recipe is so easy to make, it almost feels like cheating! All you need is a blender, a single-serving-sized baking dish (oven safe, of course!), and a handful of plant-based ingredients like Natureul Tigernut Kasha. This recipe is also nut free, gluten free, and lactose free.
Natureul Tigernut Kasha is a delicious, all-natural approach to a classic breakfast staple. Our versatile tigernut powder contains no preservatives or added sugar and can be eaten by itself or used in recipes like this one!

Why bake your tigernut porridge?
Baking your tigernut porridge transforms the texture! If you struggle with the regular texture of porridge or you want a more fluffy, moist, cake-like breakfast, you should seriously give it a try. If you’re in a hurry, though, you can skip some steps and enjoy this tasty porridge without baking it. Simply omit the baking powder, egg, and apple cider vinegar and follow step 3 only! It can’t get any easier than that.
This recipe, like a previous Natureul tigernut bread recipe, uses flax eggs as a vegan binder to keep things combined during the baking process and retain structure in the end result. Making a flax egg is much easier than it sounds, and is an integral part of many vegan baking recipes. Whisk or stir 1 tablespoon of ground flax meal with three tablespoons of water and let it thicken in the fridge for 15-20 minutes. If you don’t subscribe to a vegan diet, using a regular egg is perfectly fine!
This recipe, like many of our others, is highly adaptable to the tastes and dietary demands of each individual home chef. Make it your own by deciding what kind of sweeteners and plant milk (or regular dairy) you want to use in this recipe. Note that every different kind of sweetener (honey, stevia, cane sugar, erythritol) brings its own subtle flavor to the recipe and can affect the end result. Also be aware that certain substitutions will conflict with food allergies like lactose intolerance, nut allergy, and gluten sensitivity, so double check to make sure your substitutions are safe for your specific concerns.
You can take the customization one step further with mix-ins and toppings like fruit, chia seeds, chocolate chips, ribbons of tigernut spread, spices, etc. Experiment with different flavor combinations! You could eat it every day of the week and never get bored.
Makes one individual serving.
- ½ cup gluten free rolled oats
- ½ cup Natureul Tigernut Kasha in your favorite flavor.
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ¾ cup plant-based milk of choice
- 1 flax egg
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- ¼ tsp fine salt
- 2 tbsp vegan sweetener of choice

How to Make Tasty Tigernut Porridge
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Grease a small, oven-safe dish like a ramekin, ceramic bowl, or a mini cocotte.
- Blend all ingredients on high speed until combined. The consistency should be similar to cake batter. Let rest at room temperature for 5 minutes to thicken before moving on to the next step.
- Pour into the prepared vessel and bake for 25 minutes. Check the center with a toothpick to ensure that it’s cooked through. It should come out almost clean, save for a crumb here and there. If it comes out coated in liquid or semi-liquid batter, put the pan back into the oven for 5 minutes and check in a different (but similar) location. Repeat if necessary until the porridge is cooked through.
- Let rest for 5-10 minutes until cool enough to eat, add desired toppings, and enjoy!
