Banana Porridge with Warm Apricots and Seeds

Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day and this recipe makes it worthwhile getting up! (I’m not a morning person……..at all!)

If you don’t fancy apricots, apples are good too.

It’s super healthy with 2 of your 5 a day plus nutritious seeds and nuts.

Banana Porridge with Apricots and Seeds

Serves 1 (generously)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Rolled Oats 
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 cup Water 
  • 1 small Banana or half of a large, peeled and mashed to a pulp
  • 2 Apricots, peeled, stones removed and sliced 
  • Small knob of Butter 
  • 1tsp Golden Syrup 
  • 1tsp Sunflower Seeds 
  • 1tsp Pumpkin Seeds 
  • 1tsp Hazelnuts, lightly crushed

Method

In a saucepan heat the oats, milk and water, boil and then simmer gently, stirring occasionally. Add the banana and stir through well.

In a separate pan, heat the butter and add the apricots, gently sauté and then add the syrup. Cook until soft, not falling apart.

When the porridge is cooked and the banana is more or less dissolved into the porridge, serve in a bowl, top with the seeds and nuts and serve with the apricots and syrup sauce.

  1. Banana porridge was a firm favourite with my children when they were babies! I haven’t thought about it in years. Time to resurrect a firm favourite! Thanks for stopping by my blog 🙂

      Give the porridge a try, it’s so sweet but with natural sugars so it’s still healthy and filling!
      Take care
