Punchy Porridge

Porridge. Even looking at the word evokes images of beige,lumpy wallpaper paste. Don’t fear, I have a recipe here that will change the way you look at porridge forever! (Well, hopefully). Porridge tastes a whole lot better when teamed with something “jazzy” like apples, granola, cinnamon, and honey…. YUM!

Ok, so this recipe is one which has evolved over time. It is a heavy duty breakfast that will fill you right up to dinner time. It has texture, sweetness and crunch, a big huggy bowl of warmth really.

What do I need?

  • 1 Cup of Porridge
  • 1/2 Cup of Granola ( chopped nuts can work equally well here)
  • 1 Apple
  • Handful of raisins or chopped dates
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
  • Honey
  • Knob of butter

What do I do?

  • Chop your apple
  • Heat up a knob of butter in a frying pan and add your apples
  • Put your porridge oats into a separate saucepan with cup of milk salt and little bit of sugar to taste and stir (keep watching it)
  • Back to the frying pan, sprinkle cinnamon over the sliced apples
  • Pop Granola into the frying pan along with the apples and let it warm through and brown off, add in raisins or dates
  • Squeeze about a tablespoon of honey over the granola and apple mix, heat through slightly and take off heat
  • Your porridge should be ready at this stage, take off heat and pop into a bowl, put your apple granola mix over the top, and voila! you have yourself a punchy porridge breakfast for champions!
