Honey and cinnamon porridge is just one of those dishes that should be guilty but it’s really not. This dish is really perfect during those winter months where you want to curl up in bed. These are simple store cupboard items that you are bound to have lurking around at the back of your cupboards. Give the porridge a makeover to start your day right.
- 50g Porridge oats
- 300ml of milk/water (i used skimmed milk)
- 1 heaped TSP of ground cinnamon
- 1 TBSP of honey (brown sugar is a good substitute)
- Your favourite bowl..
Weigh out your ingredients. Try not to waste your ingredients, there is nothing worse than grey gloopy porridge.
You can make the porridge in the microwave if you don’t want to cook over the hob. Zap in minute intervals, stirring each time until you have reached your desired consistency.
To cook on the hob, add the oats, milk and cinnamon to the pan. Stir the mixture. Turn the hob on to a medium heat. Stir the porridge constantly, making sure that it doesn’t burn. Continue until you are happy with the texture. Transfer the porridge to your favourite bowl, then top with a good drizzle of honey, enjoy!
Tip: If you are cooking your porridge on the hob, fill the pan with hot water immediately after cooking to save time washing up.
