I realise this might not be suited to those in the Northern hemisphere since I hear spring is well on it’s way but bare with me because this was rather delicious (if I do say so myself!). The perfect warming breakfast on a cold chilly morning – I enjoyed this after an early morning run and it was just heavenly.
Even if it may look a bit of a mess…
Autumnal Apple Porridge
1 pinch of cinnamon
175ml (ish) water or milk of choice
1 egg (optional)
1 apple chopped into little chunks
1 knob butter
1 small handful of cereal of choice (I used a type of All-Bran things)
Yoghurt of choice
Heat a pan on a medium high heat and, once hot, add your butter. When it has melted add your apple. Continue to stir until it turns a lovely golden colour, I tend to splash a tablespoon of water on every now and then which seems to help!
Whilst the apple is cooking, mix the oats, water/milk and cinnamon in a microwaveable bowl until well combined. Then crack in your egg (if using – it makes your porridge fabulously creamy as well as adding some protein and healthy fats) and whisk in. Microwave for 2 mins on high.
Add in the cooked apple, a handful of cereal (for a bit of extra crunch) and a big dollop of yoghurt and enjoy!
Do you find your eating changes with seasons or does it tend to stay the same all year round?
