I love this recipe for when the weather starts getting cooler and you need a warming start to the day. This recipe contains fewer oats than traditional porridge recipes but has a higher content of nuts and seeds. This means that you stay fuller for longer, plus, it's better for your blood sugar balance.
MAKES 1 PORTION
4 tbsp porridge oats
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp ground flaxseeds, sunflower and pumpkin seeds
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 apple grated skin on
250ml almond milk (or milk of your choice)
1 tbsp chopped almonds
Add the oats, cinnamon, ground seeds and chia seeds to a pan and stir to combine
Grate half an apple with skin on directly into the pan
Add the water and milk and stir to combine
Heat on a moderate heat, bring to the boil and then simmer gently for approx 5 mins until cooked. Stir frequently to prevent it catching on the bottom
Add a bit of extra milk so it's your desired consistency
