Method

  1. Put the oats, coconut milk, dates, salt and maple syrup into a blender.
  2. Add icy cold water and blitz for 45 seconds.
  3. Strain through a muslin cloth and squeeze so you don’t waste any.
  4. Sieve through the cloth a second time to get rid of any remaining bits.

The Hebridean Baker uses this milk for a delicious creamy porridge, made with porridge oats, chia seeds, dried fruit and the oat milk, which takes just two minutes in the microwave.

About the Hebridean Baker

The Hebridean Baker is Coinneach MacLeod from the Isle of Lewis, who describes himself as the ‘Beardy Baking Viking from the Outer Hebrides’.

Coinneach loves sharing his passion for everything Scottish – and particularly Hebridean – on TikTok where he already has more than 10 million video views and over 130,000 followers. As well as great recipes, you’ll enjoy Gaelic lessons, Gaelic music, and fun and adventures around the Scottish islands with Coinneach, Peter and their West Highland Terrier, Seoras.

When Coinneach isn't in the kitchen, he is often found performing either as part of the traditional Gaelic folk group Gillean Challainn or as part of Alba who performed for Scotland at the Eurovision Choir Song Contest in Sweden in 2019.

Look out for The Hebridean Baker cookbook which will be published mid September. From croft loaf to cranachan chocolate bombs, and oaty apricot cookies to Harris Gin cocktails, there’s something for everyone.
