A warming breakfast of gently spiced fruity porridge topped with slices of apple and a drizzle of maple syrup gets your day off to an effortlessly healthy start.
I’ve created this breakfast that’s free of refined sugar as part of the Bloggers V Sugar campaign being run by Benenden. It’s all too easy to fill the boys with sugary cereals and toast spread with Nutella, so I thought this naturally sweetened porridge would be a fantastic alternative to get the whole family powered up for the day ahead. It’s still cold and wintery up here in the far North of England, so we need all the help we can get!
Spiced Apple and Maple Porridge
60g porridge oats
1/4 tsp all-spice
1 apple, cored and thinly sliced
maple syrup to drizzle
- Put the porridge oats, all-spice, grated apple, milk and water into a saucepan and stir over a gentle heat for 5-10 mins until thickened and bubbling. Remove from the heat.
- Pour into two bowls and top with some sliced apple and a drizzle of maple syrup.
