Porridge is a timeless breakfast and a splendid way to start the day. The whole grains in oats have been proven to boost bone mineral density, lower bloody pressure and promote healthy gut bacteria and reduce the risk of diabetes. Not to mention that porridge is delicious! However, nobody wants to eat a bland bowl of porridge every day, so we’re here to help you get a little more creative. Mix things up and give this Banoffee Porridge recipe a whirl!
If you’re short on time, this recipe can be made in advance and stored in the fridge until you are ready to grab and go. Makes enough to fill 3-4 Kilner Round 0.35 Litre Clip Top Jars.
- 100g rolled oats
- 450ml milk
