Quick Festive Breakfast

Hi All,

So back today with a bit of a different post from anything I’ve posted recently. The last few weeks have been so cold and I know when I’m frozen in the mornings all I want is something warm so I generally go for Porridge/Oatmeal, it’s still a healthy breakfast but maybe a tad more indulgent then your regular porridge recipe, but it is Christmas afterall so it’s ok…

Ingredients – 1 Portion

  • 30g Porridge
  • 250ml Fat Free Milk – quantity depends on how thick you like your porridge so use as much as you need and I just like my porridge with non fat milk, if you want to use low fat, full fat, amond milk, water or whatever you prefer go ahead.
  • Sprinkle of Cinnamon
  • 5-10 pecans
  • 1 Tablespoon of Maple Syrup
  • Fruit/Berries of choice


So I place the Oats and milk into a small pot and put it on a medium to high heat, I find this the quickest and best way to cook porridge. When it starts to heat up I continuously stir, when it is hot enough and has reached the consistency you like take it off the heat and mix in the maple syrup and sprinkle of cinnamon until it is all combined nicely. Then crush up your pecans and sprinkle on top and mix through. Also add whatever fruit, berries or seeds that you like in your porridge if you want to bulk it out, but this on its own is SOO delicious and has that indulgent festive feel without being redicuously bad for you.

Let me know if you’ve tried anything similar that I would maybe like, I hope some of you give this a try and tell me.

Back soon,
