Apple, Raisin & Cinnamon Porridge

Apple, Raisin & Cinnamon Porridge

A delicious nourishing breakfast that will keep you going till lunchtime without cravings!

Ingredients

(Serves 4 as a big breakfast)

200 grammes porridge oats or oatmeal

800 millilitres water

50 grammes coconut flakes/raisins or currants

2 apples

3 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla (optional)

pinch of nutmeg (optional)

Prunes (optional) 

To serve

coconut milk (or other nut milk of your choice)

raisins or currants

fresh banana/ chopped apple/ berries

Toasted oats

Method

1. Soak the oats in water the night before if you have time ( 8 hours is perfect)

2. Put porridge oats into a pot

3. Pour in enough of the water to cover all the oats. Give the oats a good stir and add more water until they have soaked it all up

4. Turn on the cooker on lowest heat and stir really well until the water becomes cloudy

5. Allow the porridge to start to bubble at the sides but be sure to stir it all the time so it cooks evenly and doesn't stick to the bottom.

6. Now add in the cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg and coconut or raisins or currants. Stir really well and keep on low heat.

7. Add water as necessary. You want the porridge to be wet and not gloopy and glue like. This takes about 10 minutes or so.

8. Once the porridge is ready then turn off the heat and leave the porridge on the cooker, but move it onto a ring that isn't hot

9. Now wash and grate or chop the apple up finely

10. Mix the apple through the porridge and leave it for 5 minutes

11. Now serve the porridge into bowls and top each bowl with a tablespoon of coconut milk, some fresh apple (or any fruit of your choice), raisins, toasted oats and a drizzle of maple syrup if you're feeling naughty.
