Is it porridge time yet?

Is it porridge time yet?

This is not a question for me, as I eat porridge all year round and can’t live without it!  But as I discovered earlier this week when I was back to 6am running, it’s now dark at that time and it’s also quite a bit cooler.  With that in mind it may be time to consider a different breakfast.  Porridge is a great option to keep you going for several hours though the morning.  I have various different options on mine, blueberries, Chia seeds or stewed apple are my top three but recently I found this recipe that looked rather tasty.  It’s from ‘Deliciously Ella’, and she is all about taking a healthy option.  See what you think and maybe share your favourite porridge accompaniment. 


Deliciously Ella Pear, Cinnamon and walnut porridge


1 ripe pear

100g of porridge oats, 2/3 cup

250ml almond milk, 1 cup

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1 tablespoon of maple syrup

Handful of roasted walnuts, chopped


Preheat oven to 180c, fan.

Cut your pear into slices and place them on a baking tray with a tablespoon of maple syrup and a teaspoon of cinnamon. Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden, adding the walnuts right at the end to toast.

While your pear is baking in the oven make your porridge; place your oats, milk, a teaspoon of cinnamon and a tablespoon of maple syrup in a pan over a medium heat and cook for around 5-8 minutes until smooth and creamy.

Once your pears are cooked, place them on top of your porridge with the chopped walnuts and enjoy!
