Blueberry and Banana Breakfast Porridge

I eat porridge for breakfast most mornings, normally with a bit of honey and cinnamon, but eating the same thing everyday can become extremely boring. This recipe is my solution to jazzing up regular old porridge, it’s really filling and super healthy! In the winter months when fresh berries aren’t in season, I keep my freezer stocked up with frozen ones which are great to have at hand.

Makes 1 serving
35g of jumbo oats
200ml of water
1 banana
1 teaspoon of honey
A small handful of blueberries

Place the oats and water in a small pot and place over a medium heat.  Allow the oats to swell and cook slowly, stirring with a wooden spoon, until they become nice and creamy. While the porridge is cooking, using the back of a fork, mash together the blueberries and banana until you get a nice smooth paste. Pour the cooked porridge into a bowl, top with the blueberry and banana mix and stir through with a little bit of honey.

Serve straight away.
