Baked porridge

Baked porridge is kinda like having pudding for breakfast, but healthier than a pud. We have so many variations on porridge we need write a book very soon! This delicious one is by fitnat’s support nutritionist Khara Mills, Khara has tried and tested it each week after doing parkrun, and it’s well-established. You can even assemble it the night before making it to save a few mins.
