Quick Porridge Pudding

Porridge Pudding

Who wants a pudding for breakfast? Oh yes….this little 2 minute pudding is perfect, nutritious, filling, tasty & quick to make, whats not to love!

I love my porridge in the morning as you may know, especially in the winter months. I love experimenting with different techniques & flavours and I just had to try this, the great thing is that you can add any flavour you like, making it your own.

Oats are gluten free and whole oats are rich in antioxidants making them great for you. A great source of fibre & good carbs too.

Makes 1 Cup

40g Porridge Oats

1 Medium Egg

120ml Yoghurt (whichever flavour you prefer, I used Raspberry)

1 Tbsp of raisins & dried Goji berries

1/2 Tsp Vanilla essence (or you could use cinnamon or any flavouring of your choice)

1 Tbsp of Chopped walnuts & seeds for topping (or you could use banana or blueberries etc)

1 Tbsp Yoghurt for topping

  1. Place oats, egg, 120ml yoghurt, raisins & berries along with essence into a mug and mix through until combined.
  2. Cook at 800w power in a microwave for 2 minutes, ensuring it doesn’t spill over, remove, loosen the edges with a spatula or knife and tip onto a plate
  3. Finish off with some yoghurt, nuts & seeds and enjoy!

Oh yum! These were so tasty and so healthy. Waking up this morning to cold and wet rain outside I fancied something warm for my breakfast, so looking in my cupboards I had some scott porridge oats, a banana left and some Maple Syrup in the fridge………so yes, you guessed it, pancakes it just had to be.

My first time at oat & banana and they were pretty tasty.

1 egg separated

1 small banana

  2. Whisk the egg white until you get stiff peaks. Gently fold the egg whites into the pancake mixture.
  3. Heat up a non stick fry pan with a tsp oil and drop about 2 tbsps of the mixture into the pan and cook on a medium heat until you start to see the bubbles appearing, then flip and cook for a further minute or 2.                                                        20190405_091206
