Recipe: Cinnamon Berry Porridge

I feel like I tend to forget how much I like cinnamon. But now that the weather is getting colder, nights are getting darker…I can feel myself wanting more comforting meals. This recipe is incredibly simple but well balanced. I always try to include 1 of my 5 a day in my breakfasts so that I start my day off well. This recipe can be adapted for whichever berries you’d like, and whichever milk you’d like.

Ingredients:

40g Porridge Oats

125ml Unsweetened Almond Milk

80g of Berries (I used mixed berries that had blackberries, raspberries, strawberry and blackcurrants in)

1/2 teaspoon of Cinnamon

2g Chia Seeds

Method:

  • Mix the porridge and the milk together.
  • Heat this mixture however you like. I tend to us a microwave as I don’t have time to use the hob on work mornings. The almond milk is a great one to try because it adds a lovely nutty flavour into the oats.
  • Heat the berries (whichever mixture you fancy, or have on hand) with the cinnamon. This will make the berries carry the flavour or the cinnamon.
  • Then once the porridge is heated through, pour this into a bowl.
  • Top with the cinnamon and berry mixture.
  • Finally to finish it all off, top with a sprinkle of chia seeds. This adds a bit of a crunch to the porridge.
  • Sit down, and enjoy!

Love,

Laurie
