I used to think anything that was good for me normally takes a long time to prepare, before I realised I was really just making excuses for eating the sugary, empty carb, fattening diet that I relished. Breakfast is always a test of my resolve: how I start the day normally determines how the rest of my day will play out. So getting breakfast right is very important to me.
I love Granola but, we all fancy a change once in a while. And with the weather cooling down and the winds picking up, I fancied something warm, nutritious and quick in my belly.
This recipe is quick, easy and very tasty. You can use any non-diary milk that you like (I’m enjoying the oat, almond and coconut flavours out there now). And don’t forget the sprinkles! These sweet sprinkles (a mixture of candied cranberry and dried apricot and seeds) work very well with the warm spice flavours in the porridge.
1 cup porridge oats
2 cups non diary milk (almond milk was used here)
1 cup water
1 tsp brown sugar (to taste)
1/2 tsp almond oil
1/2 tsp nutmeg powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1/2 serving of Sainsbury’s Fruit and seed Sprinkles
Add all the above ingredients (except the sprinkles) under a medium. Bring the pot to a boil and then allow it to simmer under a low heat for 4-5 minutes stirring frequently. When the porridge has reached your desired consistency, serve with a dash of the milk and sprinkle with the fruit and seed sprinkles.
