Spiced cranberry, walnut and honey porridge

A warming, hearty start to a winter’s day.

Ingredients:

45g rolled oats

270ml whole milk

1/4tsp ground cinnamon

1/4tsp ground ginger

pinch of freshly grated nutmeg

1 cup fresh cranberries (or frozen, thawed overnight)

handful walnuts, roasted and chopped into rough chunks

honey

Method:

  • In a small saucepan, place the oats, spiced and milk
  • Bring to a slow boil, stirring constantly until the porridge begins to thicken
  • Stir in the cranberries and continue to simmer until the milk has been absorbed by the oats and you have a creamy consistency – if you end up with a stodgy consistency, add a little more milk and mix in well
  • Transfer the porridge to a bowl that you have warmed slightly in the over, sprinkle over the walnuts and drizzle with honey. Delicious!

Recipe for 1 person. Health conscious? – you can replace the whole milk with semi-skimmed but the porridge will be a little less creamy.
