Honey and Cinnamon Oat Porridge

This week there has been a slight chill in the air, summer is officially coming to an end and winter is just around the corner. I cannot wait for cosy winter knits and rainy days rugged up on the couch with a good book to read and winter stew simmering in the oven.

This is a quick and nourishing breakfast sure to warm you up in the winter months ahead. There is nothing more comforting than a big bowl of warm oats on a cold winter’s morning. Porridge is the type of breakfast that I dream about at night and jump out of bed for in the morning.

This is my basic recipe for porridge and it never disappoints. I love coming up with creative ideas for toppings. Think creamy peanut butter, banana, dates, fresh berries, cacao nibs, yogurt, coconut, the list goes on…I often persoanlise each bowl to my mood or what produce is in season.

Ingredients:

  • 1 small mashed banana
  • ¼ cup oat bran
  • ¼ rolled oats
  • ½ teaspoon of chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of flax seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 cup almond milk

Topping ideas:

  • Fruit
  • Seeds
  • Nuts
  • Peanut Butter
  • Yogurt
  • Cacao Nibs
  • Honey or maple syrup
  • Fresh dates

Add all ingredients to a medium sized saucepan, mix together. Heat porridge over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 3-5 minutes or until desired consistency is reached. Transfer to a bowl and add your favourite toppings.
