My Everyday Porridge Recipe

Monday, 9 January 2017

This is the porridge I make almost every morning. It's the one that never fails me and the one that is a really good base for pretty much any toppings. I do love a fancy flavoured porridge every now and again, but this is the simple and pleasing one that I always come back to because it is so good. Turns out, cooking the banana into the oats is a total game changer, trust me.


You will need (serves 1):
1/2 cup oats 
1/2 cup plant milk of your choice (oat milk is my favourite!)
1 ripe banana 
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds

Method:
- Add the oats to a pot along with the plant milk, cinnamon, pumpkin seeds and 1/2 a cup of water. Chop the banana into coins and add this to the pot too. 
- Simmer over a low-medium heat for 6-7 minutes until thickened. I usually need to add a little more water as it cooks but this depends on how you like your porridge.
- Serve with all the toppings of your choice. My faves are peanut butter (obvs), frozen berries, banana, maple syrup, almond butter, jam and granola (but not all at once!).
