On winter mornings you can’t beat a bowl of porridge! Make it at home and put in a food thermos to take to work. Top with fruit, nuts and berries as you wish or just enjoy as it is.



  1. Get out your equipment: Saucepan, Scales, Measuring Jug, Teaspoon and Wooden Spoon
  2. Measure all the ingredients into your saucepan (sometimes I do this the evening before and put the saucepan in the fridge to make it even quicker in the morning).
  3. Put the saucepan onto a medium to high heat and as the liquid gets hot turn it down a little. Keep stirring way and the mixture will start to thicken after 3 or 4 minutes.
  4. Turn the heat down further and cook through for another couple of minutes keeping stirring so that the porridge doesn’t stick or burn on the bottom of your saucepan.
  5. Serve straight away and add more toppings if you like.
  6. If you are coeliac or allergic to gluten then buy gluten free oats which have been certified as gluten free as they are not packaged on production lines which also may be used for gluten containing products. If you are just choosing to follow a gluten free diet because it makes you feel better then you should be OK buying regular oats which are a lot cheaper.
