Original post (with pictures) here.

Ingredients:
1/4 cup oats (or 1/3 or 1/2 cup to appetite / taste)
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (increase to double your oat quantity if using more oats)
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp chia seeds
2 tsp carob powder (or cocoa powder)
1 tsp cocoa nibs
1-2 tbsp dried cranberries
1 apple, chopped

Sweetener, optional and to taste

Method:
If cooking on the stovetop, combine the oats, almond milk, water, chia seeds and carob/cocoa powder and cook over medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes, until the porridge reaches simmering point. Reduce heat to low, add the cocoa nibs, cranberries and apple, and cook for another minute or so. Add sweetener at the end if you desire.

If cooking in the microwave, combine the oats, almond milk, water, chia seeds and carob/cocoa powder in a deep bowl and cook on medium-high heat for 1 minute, monitoring carefully to avoid it bubbling over. Stir, add the cocoa nibs, cranberries and apple, and return to the microwave for an additional 1 minute of cooking. Stir, and heat for a further 30 seconds if needed. Add sweetener at the end if you desire.
