Brown Sugar Porridge


Serves 1

There’s nothing more comforting than a big bowl of creamy porridge in the colder months. Add in some apples, brown sugar and a few toasted walnuts and you’ll be happy all morning.
Per serve: 1212.5kj (288.7cals); 5.8g total fat (1.5g saturated fat)


You’ll need

½ cup traditional rolled oats
½ cup low fat milk
½-¾ cup water
1½ tsp brown sugar
¼ tsp vanilla extract
⅓ cup canned apples
1 tsp roughly chopped walnuts (about 1-2 walnut halves)

Let’s go

Place walnuts into a small frypan and cook over a low heat until brown and fragrant (keep an eye on them as nuts burn very quickly. If you think you’ll eat this more often, toast a batch of nuts and keep them in an airtight container).

Place oats, milk, ½ cup water and vanilla extract into a small saucepan and cook over a medium-low heat for 5 minutes. Add more water if porridge gets too dry. I like my porridge creamy and loose and so I add a little more water during the cooking process.  While porridge is cooking, heat apples and keep warm. Once porridge is cooked, pour into a bowl and top with apples, remaining brown sugar and toasted nuts.


Why it’s good for you
Oats are a fantastic way to start the day. They’re high in fibre and will keep you going until lunch. I like to add some nuts for protein and crunch and some apples for extra flavour but if you’re nut intolerant, feel free to leave them out.
