Cinnamon and apple ‘posh’ porridge


This recipe is so tasty it feels like it should be naughty, but everything in it is good for you. The oats and apple are full of antioxidants and fibre, plus cinnamon is one of the healthiest (and most delicious) spices on the planet.


  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 1 apple, grated
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup of milk of your choice (cow, soy, rice, or almond)
  • Honey to taste

Place all the ingredients in a saucepan except the milk.  Allow the mixture to come to the boil, stirring occasionally.  After 1 min check to see how much liquid is left in the pot.  Add your milk of choice and allow to simmer for a further 1 min.  Check the porridge, the oats will have broken down and have a little sauce coating them, not dry.

Top with some muesli if you like a bit of crunch.
