  • 30 g porridge oats
  • 250 ml tap water
  • Splash of semi skimmed milk
  • 1/2 Apple
  • handful of fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tsp of blackcurrant jam
  • 1 tsp of mixed seeds
  • 1 tsp cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp of honey I used borage crystallized honey
  • Extra honey for serving if desired.


  • The idea behind this breakfast is that it can be eaten during the week. So for quick preparation I always use the microwave. However, if you have the time and prefer, the porridge can be prepared on the hob in a pan.
  • Place the oats into a bowl and add 200ml of the water. Place in the microwave and heat on high for 1 minute 30 seconds. Remove and stir. Add the splash of milk, stir, and return to the microwave for a further minute.
  • Once the porridge has cooked through and thickened remove from the microwave and stir. Add the remaining 50 ml of water in order to cool the porridge slightly and allow it to loosen.
  • Next add the honey and mix in well. Set the porridge to one side.
  • (If you are preparing the porridge the night before, allow to cool completely before storing in the fridge.)
  • Prepare your toppings by chopping the apple and slicing the mint. Arrange the apple, mint, jam, seeds and cacao powder in rows on the top of the porridge.
  • Finally drizzle more honey over the top if desired and enjoy.
