This is my fav breakfast recipe.

The addition of bananas into the cooking pan is a great idea! I didn't have any strawberries so added some blueberries and omitted the yoghurt. I also cut down on the sugar. Still tasted delicious and indeed a good way to use up those bruised bananas. However, this recipe will never feed 4 if you are feeding a husband and growing boys! I didn't quite double up, just added some extra oats and milk.

A proper celebration of breakfast! Even without the strawberries.

This sounds good. I must try it without so much sugar though. I like the idea of adding the bananas before cooking.

I had this for breakfast this morning and thought it was a delicious and fulfilling way to start the day! I didn't have any strawberries or yogurt in though, so I used honey and raisins as I'm such a sweet tooth. It's a great way to use up your bruised bananas!

I would never have thought to include banana in the pan when cooking the porridge, but it works so well. Delicious with the cinnamon too and something I'll definitely make again soon.

Delicious and very filling (although I did eat 2 servings at once...)

A really nice breakfast, I cooked some of the strawberries as well as the banana.
