Apple & Cinnamon Porridge Recipe

apple cinnamon porridge recipe

At this time of year porridge for breakfast is a must for me as it is warming, really healthy (as the oats release their energy slowly avoiding spikes in blood sugar levels), keeps me full until lunchtime and makes me very happy!

I love oats in all forms and so porridge for breakfast is something to look forward to.

It’s delicious simply drizzled with a little honey or a little sprinkle of brown sugar but with just a few added ingredients, a humble bowl of porridge can be transformed into something really special. This recipe is also a good way of getting your first of your 5-a-day!

The apple adds plenty of sweetness making it refined sugar free (healthy again!) but if you have a particularly sweet tooth, a little drizzle of honey is a good choice.

Porridge was one of the first things I was allowed to make for myself in the kitchen as a child as it is so simple to do and takes very little time. Allowing your children to get involved with preparing their own breakfast can be a great way to get them interested in eating a healthier, wider variety of foods.

How to make Apple & Cinnamon Porridge

This is so easy! Just put all of the ingredients into a small saucepan and place over a medium heat. Simmer for 5-10 minutes (5 minutes will leave the apple with more texture, 10 minutes will give the apple time to cook more and give a creamier porridge.

If the porridge is thicker than you like simple add a little more water.

Pour the porridge into a serving bowl and sprinkle a little extra cinnamon on top to serve.
