With the weather becoming so cold this week, I wanted to send my kids out to school having had a warm and filling breakfast. Porridge is the obvious answer and I made this really easy version the night before.
When you soak oats overnight, you don’t need to cook them, although warmed up, just seem to set you up for the day. Cooking up some chopped apple and pear, with a sprinkling of cinnamon just added to that warmth.
Apart from peeling and chopping the fruit, it didn’t take long to make. I only cooked the fruit through for a few minutes, just enough to start to soften. Then I whizzed it up in the blender to make a smooth puree.
Although this comfortably serves four people, by adding a little extra milk to taste (depending on how thick you like it), this went round all five of us. I also made this recipe gluten and dairy free.
