    After you mentioned coffee oatmeal that last time I went ahead and made some myself, with some raspberries thrown in (and maybe some chocolate drops…), but I never though to add cardamom! How silly am I? Coffee oatmeal take 2…

    Oh goodie!! I can’t wait to make this 🙂 and yes, that kaya sounds delicious (note to self, investigate kaya!). What a perfect morning pick-me-up bowl of goodness!! nom indeed.

    interestingly coffee and porridge are both foods I feel I should like but just can’t come at so I just don’t think this pudding would work for me but I am wondering how I would like to try your kaya – hope you might feature other ways of serving it now the genie is out of the bottle! (or is it something you just eat straight from a jar?)

    I just recently jump on the porridge wagon! And the weather is getting warm. Weird right? 😀 Love the kaya idea!

    Note to self: Add coffee to morning oats.
    That is all 😉

    Geez, that’d have to be better than the bowl of Special K I forced myself to eat this morning.

    ….although, dare I say that the green addition reminds me of something else that’s sticky and slimy?

    Sweeet. I have been hoarding some kaya as well. I’m plotting to smear it on waffles. 😀

    I’m seriously in love with Kaya so I’m excited that you’ve used it like this, in fact I’d have to say its a first for me but wow…, it’d be good (which is of course exactly what your telling us huh).

    Awwww, it’s like…baby poo pudding. Topped with cat vomit. Awww.

    I love making new oatmeal creations, but I agree it’s usually so ugly haha. That sounds delightful!

    Oh, I’m so taking this, along with your Maple Almond Cranberry Granola recipe, with me to LA this week. Looking forward to indulging in oat yumminess with friends. 🙂

    This is not my thing. I really hate coffee. The smell. The taste if I accidentally ingest some (very rare I can pick a coffee flavoured item from 20 paces), so I wouldn’t make it. I am a big porridge fan- though tend to restrict myself to the cooler months- I admire you carrying on year round. I will have to agree with Kath, whilst the kaya looks delicious, I don’t know that it really does improve the photogenicity. I must try some on some warm toast, I wasn’t overwhelmed by the cold toast experience I had in Singapore. And what is it with chia seeds? I’ve never heard of them before, and suddenly they seem to be everywhere. I know that you’ve mentioned them before, and perhaps because I’ve been cruising some vegan blogs of late (they offer up tasty low GI treats much of the time, and I kind of like having interesting vegan/vegetarian lunches at work) I’m now seeing chia seeds everywhere. I’m left feeling rather provincial and and not up with the times.

    mmmmmm another good use for Kaya!

  14. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Wowie! I have no idea what pandan is, but I think I need it in my mouth, like NOW.

    And you swirled it up all pretty for the camera…mmm, vegan or not, must try someday.

    Also, coffee in oatmeal? How have I never thought of that?! Love the chia in there too, of course. Hmm, chia, coconut, cinnamon, and cardamom all in one bowl? You’re just a few ingredients away from my final project “rice” pudding. 🙂

  15. GirlonRaw

    Wow I’ve never heard of Kaya before but because it has coconut in it (?) I think I need it right now! Where can I get some?

    And I cannot believe how you feel about coconut. Seriously Hannah, I have to make you some of my raw vegan icecream someday (double choc flavour of course). You would ever know the base is young thai coconut meat. YUMBO!

  16. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    To an oat fiend such as myself, that plain old unadorned photo was singing to me already. I can’t wait for breakfast every day, even when it is pretty much always the same. Will I ever tire of oats? I hope not. Please say it won’t happen!

    Now, I know it is brown but a good friend gaev me a little present yesterday that I think would be totally AWESOME on there… raw organic COCONUT CHOCOLATE BUTTER. OMG. It is awesome.

    1. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

      P.S. I’m totally sniffing it from the jar right now.

  17. hungryandfrozen

    This sounds kind of awful but kind of amazing! Am such a convert to the magic of chia.
    And I’ve always wanted to try kaya, I’ve seen it *around* but never picked up a jar. It just sounds so magical…

    Kaya, that pandan coconut custard jam-like condiment that I’d heard so much about on the blogosphere.

    I’ve been a bad food blogger (and I’m going to conveniently start identifying as a science blogger right now, until further notice) as I’ve never even heard of kaya – and I scroll through Foodgawker and Tastespotter in a detached and superficial manner all the time! I’m intrigued, mainly because I want a new flavour-pairing challenge. I can’t even imagine what kaya tastes like, so I’d certainly have fun trying to figure out what it would go with. I paired haloumi with cardamon rather successfully recently – if I find kaya anywhere, I may have to embark upon a new flavour-pairing journey! Oh, the possibilities!

  19. Agnes

    Ummm.. BFF, you know I love you, but if you put the kaya on top of the oatmeal in an effort to pretty it up…. well, it kind of looks like you sneezed into it….

    Just keeping it realz… 😉


  20. Helen (grabyourfork)

    zomg how did i miss this post? i’m so glad you finally cracked open that jar of kaya even if it missing the requisite slab of butter on the side. lol. but coffee porridge? Breakfast and caffeine in one! Bring it on!

  21. Ellie@fitforthesoul

    I love coffee, now why didn’t I think of that combo?! Maybe gonna try it tomorrow! 😛 Thanks Hannah

    […] the traditional Malaysian breakfast. (For some reason, no one has yet immortalised my version of a kaya oatmeal breakfast in dessert form. Harrumph.) This macaron was tasty novelty […]
