Porridge with Caramelised Bananas

This recipe gives you enough porridge for two big bowls. It’s quick and easy and the bananas give a beautiful sweetness which offsets the somewhat blandness of the oats.


Porridge oats (preferably whole meal) – 1 cup

Non-dairy milk of your choosing (oat works well)- 1 cup

Bananas (1 or 2 depending on how hungry you are)

Blueberries (optional)

Water – 1 cup

Prep time : 1 minute

Cook time: 15 minutes

Nutrition : (With one banana) 50g carbs 15g protein, 5g fat

Method :

1. Add porridge oats, milk and water to a pan and bring to the boil, turn down to a simmer and leave it for 12-15 minutes or until it has the consistency you desire (I like mine more on the milky side)

2. Chop banana in half then cut each half length ways to create 4 pieces of banana per banana – banana!

3. Get a non- stick pan (vital that’s its non stick otherwise all he’ll will break loose and the bananas will be in edible) on a high heat then add the bananas to it (don’t use oil).

4. Drop the temperate of the pan right down and the the caramelisation begin! Usually within a few minutes you’ll have a nice browning on ones side so just flip the banana over and let the same thing happen on the other side.

5. When your porridge is cooked add to a bowl and let it cook for a few minutes.

6. Check your bananas are caramelised (they should be floppy and a little bit gooey) and add them to the top of the porridge in way that is pleasing to the eye.

7. Add a few blueberries (optional) and enjoy!
