Rustic Apple & Cinnamon Porridge

Breakfast. Does it seem quite repetitive or even boring? Not having enough time in the day probably means you've gone for the easiest option rather than the best option! If your a porridge fan you must try this recipe. Grated dessert apple drizzled with a touch of 'runny honey' is toddler approved and a family favourite! (My son even scraped the bowl!) Really simple to make, low-cost and your house smells so warm and cosy!

'Because this is a 'rustic' bowl of porridge, perfection is off the cards.'
Scroll down for the recipe:

I think there is no right or wrong way of making porridge. If you don't use cow's milk, use an alternative. If you use water, then you know it's not as creamy but still the porridge you love and know. Having time on my hands, I like to use the microwave to cook my rolled oats.

Rolled Oats (serving portion)
(Milk/Milk altern/Water) - Your choice
Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Dessert Apple (Grated)
Drizzle Honey

Because this is a 'rustic' bowl of porridge, perfection is off the cards.
The rules are simple, cook your porridge either on the stove top or in the microwave. You know it's ready when the porridge is creamy and glossy. If you have used water you will know the consistency that suits you! Whilst your porridge is piping hot, quickly peel and grate your dessert apple. Mix your apple into the porridge followed by a pinch of cinnamon and a drizzle of honey.
Ready, get, set, EAT!
