Creamy spiced oats to make your belly sing
Porridge is easily the healthiest breakfast a body can have, but it took me a while to make peace with it's gloopy texture and grey pallor. This recipe turns sludgy old porridge oats into a warm and flavoursome breakfast that will keep you full and content for ages. It's also incredibly cheap and quick to prepare.
Ingredients: (serves 2)
2 oz porridge oats
Just a little over 1/4 pint water
1/4 pint milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 large / 2 small bananas, chopped
I always make this in the microwave, as it is easy and fast and less difficult to clean up afterwards, but you can make it in a saucepan over a medium heat too.
For the microwave option, get a pudding bowl which is nice and deep. Put in the cinnamon and oats and shake them together. Add the milk and water, stir, and put in the microwave on full power for 45 seconds. Stir well and turn it on again for 45 seconds. Repeat, then put back in the microwave until you can see the oats bubbling up to the top of the bowl.
Spoon into bowls and add the chopped banana. Serve immediately, and happily.
