Easy apple cinnamon porridge

Easy apple vanilla cinnamon porridge

Creamy oats … these will keep you going all morning.

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.

Enjoy,

Ingredients

  • Heaped 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 an apple
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract

Method

  1. Place oats, water, milk, cinnamon and vanilla in a large microwaveable bowl.
  2. Place in the microwave for five minutes on high.
  3. While the oats are cooking, wash the apple and grate it with the skin on.
  4. Add the grated apple to the porridge mixture and return to the microwave for another minute on high (if you like a thicker porridge like me then cook for another two minutes).

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.

Handy tips
*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.
