Blueberry porridge with cinnamon, honey and almonds

There are no two ways about it, I love porridge. It is low in fat, filling and the possibilities are endless when it comes to flavour combinations.

This recipe can easily be doubled up, and because all of the key ingredients are added at the end the whole family can enjoy a different breakfast without having to make a different meal for each person.
I like to add a pinch of cinnamon to the bowl when I make porridge; not only does it give my breakfast a nice warmth it can aid in metabolising and regulating sugar in the blood.


  • 38g porridge oats (I use rolled oats)
  • 250ml milk
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 1tsp honey
  • fruit and nuts of your choice
  • Place the porridge oats in a saucepan with the milk and cinnamon. Stir over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes until the milk has been absorbed into the oats.
  • Transfer into a bowl and add whatever you want!
Of course adding extra fruit and nuts is going to give your breakfast a boost of flavour but it's also a great ways of adding extra protein and nutrients into your diet.

Instead of blueberries why not try adding apple slices, banana, strawberries or raspberries; and as a treat and an extra kick of sweetness i love a drizzle of golden or maple syrup.

What do you enjoy with your porridge?
