Christmas porridge

Here’s a jolly-good seasonal variation for porridge; kinda like having a mince pie on your oats! Emma, one of our clients, said today “OMG Christmas is happening in my mouth!”
Serves: 1 • Prep time: 5 mins • Cook time: 5 mins • Easy
  • 40g oats (females), 55g oats (males)
  • 250ml-350ml whole milk,
  • approx 1 heaped dessert spoon of mixed fruit (sultanas/raisins type a thing!)
  • 2 teaspoons of flaked almonds or any chopped nuts
  • squeeze of fresh orange juice
  • zest from half an orange (optional)
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of butter
  • 1½ tablespoon of mild clear honey
  • pinch of nutmeg and cinnamon
Make the porridge in the normal way on the hob with whole milk and 1 tablespoon of honey.

In a small pan add the fruit, nuts, zest, juice, butter and remaining honey and heat through.

To serve spoon the warm fruit mixture on to the porridge and even add a swirl of cream, sprinkle on nutmeg and cinnamon and a dessert spoon of toasted oats if you want as well!
Nutrition info
Oats are particularly high in manganese which is great for healthy bone formation, healthy skin and helping to control blood sugar. Oats are a wholegrain, that means the good stuff hasn’t been removed. Wholegrains are an important source of B vitamins and fibre. A happy gut is at the heart of good health!

My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?
