I love porridge in summer or winter and there’s something about the smell of cinnamon in the morning that really gets me excited about eating breakfast.
Porridge is a great low GI option to help keep you full for most of the morning when you’re running around like a crazy person. This is such an easy and quick way to liven up a bowl of porridge and turn it into something really tasty.
You can also make a really thick porridge mixture by cooking it for a bit longer and shaping it into little balls for your baby to feed themselves with.
Molly’s still not quite feeding herself direct from the bowl just yet so I normally just pre-load spoons and hand them to her. She is also obsessed with yoghurt at the moment so I serve this to her with a dollop of thick natural yoghurt on the top.
My serving on the other hand is normally smothered in honey with a dash of milk.
This will feed one adult and one baby. For every extra adult add 1/2 a level cup of oats, 3/4 cup of water and 1/2 cup of milk. For every extra child add 1/4 cup oats, 1/3 cup water and 1/4 cup milk.
*Make sure that you use a bowl large enough that when the porridge cooks and expands it doesn’t overflow out the top.
*If you’re short on time you can use extra fine cut oats (Quick Oats) and that will minimise your cooking time.
