Healthy Maple Cinnamon Porridge

With winter well and truly setting in warmer meals are definitely called for and what better way to start the day than with a warm bowl of delicious porridge.

Not only is porridge an easy winter breakfast idea, it’s also a highly nutritious meal. Oats are full of fibre which is great for aiding digestion and keeping you feeling full throughout the morning. Adding a pinch of cinnamon is also a great way to kickstart your metabolism and provide your body with natural antioxidants.

 

This recipe has the added bonus of being completely dairy-free, I’ve used almond milk but I’m sure other types of nut milk would work just as well. You can of course use regular cow’s milk for a lovely creamy texture if you’re not avoiding dairy.

It’s getting so cold here this year, usually I have no problem getting through the winter but honestly I’m starting to think this time I need to escape to a warmer climate until it’s over! At least at this time of year we can enjoy an abundance of hot home cooked food like rich slow-cooked meals and velvety soups. It’s the perfect time to do big cook-ups actually, when I made this porridge the other day I was so thankful I could just wake up each morning and reheat it and not have to worry about preparing anything.

 

I’m going to go and defrost now. Hope you enjoy this super easy breakfast recipe!
