The Healthy Girl Guide has recently shared my Three Things to Help Improve Your Energy Levels which are essential reading as we head towards those darker mornings and nights. I mentioned a great porridge recipe to get you motivated and energised in the morning and I am delighted to feature it here!
Boostiful Pear Porridge (Feeds four hungry people!)
Any busy family home should have a good staple porridge recipe. The right recipe can set you up for the day and warm the cockles of your heart even on the coldest of days!
200g Porridge Oats
4 small or 2 large pears (peeled, cored and chopped)
1 – 1.5 litres of milk (of your choice) or water
50 grams of greek yogurt
Small handful of chopped walnuts and 2 tablespoons of honey mixed together
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
Place the oats, chopped pear, and cinnamon in a pan with a litre of milk. Heat and bring to a simmer for 6 minutes, stiring all the time to stop the porridge from sticking to the pan . Add more milk if the porridge is too thick. Once cooked to your liking, remove from the pan and divide into four bowls. Top each bowl with a dollop of greek or natural yogurt, and a teaspoon of the walnut mixture!
To save time, chop a 50g packet of walnuts and pour into a sterilised jam jar. Add four tablespoons of honey and store in the fridge for anytime your feel like using a teaspoon as a porridge topper!
