Ever thought about cooking your berries into your porridge? Some mornings, we just yearn for porridge with a difference, cooking the berries in gives you a sweeter taste and a different colour to your morning bowl of oats.
- 125 g blueberries
- 1 cup oats
- 2 cups water
- pinch of salt
- 1 x banana
- remaining blueberries
- chopped almonds
In a saucepan, add the oats, half of the blueberries and the water and salt. Bring to the boil and simmer for 4-5 minutes. Once the berries have cooked through, mash them gently with a fork to let the juice out to colour the porridge.
Serve piping hot in a bowl, serve with topping of your choice eg: 1/2 banana per portion, the remaining blueberries as well as a small handful of chopped almonds and linseeds.( or ground flaxseed). You can add a drizzle of honey or maple syrup for the really sweet toothed.
