Winter Warmer Porridge

Updated: Jul 14

My go-to breakfast for colder mornings – porridge is filling and cosy, and can be flavoured with whatever you have available in your kitchen. Oats are a source of beta-glucan, a type of fibre that can help lower LDL cholesterol and reduce risk of cardiovascular disease.



You'll Need:

BASIC PORRIDGE

cup whole oats ¾ cup milk or milk alternative ½ cup water CARROT CAKE Add-ins: ½ cup grated carrot + ¼ teaspoon mixed spice + 4 large dates, chopped Toppings: 2 tablespoons walnuts + 1 tablespoon shredded coconut + 2 teaspoons pumpkin seeds

APPLE AND WALNUT

Add-ins: ½ cup grated or diced apple + ½ teaspoon cinnamon

Toppings: 2 tablespoons walnuts + 1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup

BANANA AND COCONUT

Add-ins: 1 banana, chopped + ½ teaspoon cinnamon + coconut milk (instead of regular milk)

Toppings: 1 banana, sliced + 2 teaspoons shredded coconut

PEANUT BUTTER AND CACAO

Add-ins: 1 banana, chopped + 2 teaspoons cacao powder

Toppings: 1 tablespoon peanut butter



Method:

Heat oats, water, milk plus your choice of add-ins in a pan over medium heat for around 5-10 minutes, stirring often, until liquid is absorbed and oats are soft.

Transfer to serving bowls and decorate with appropriate toppings.

Enjoy!
