This naturally sweet and filling breakfast option is a favourite of mine. Especially as it’s so easy to make. You can supplement the milk for a non-dairy option.
Prep time: 2 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Serves: 1 adult
240ml Semi Skimmed Milk
40g Gluten-Free Porridge Oats
1 Golden Delicious Apple
1-2 Handful of Raspberries (fresh or frozen work equally as well)
- Put the milk and oats in to a saucepan and heat on low-medium.
- Dice the apple and add it to the pan.
- Add the raspberries to the pan also. I use about 1 and a half handfuls.
- Stir constantly, as the porridge starts to form and thicken and the raspberries break up to make a pink sauce that mixes in to the porridge.
- After roughly 10 minutes (may be a little less), your porridge should be ready. Taste it to check the consistency is right. It should look pink in colour!
