If you think 34g of sugar for breakfast is healthy then you're living in cloud cuckoo land! Those people adding raisins are probably closer to 50g, the recommended daily sugar intake for women according to some health organisations. For me, grated orange zest goes very well with cinnamon and porridge, and you can make it with water instead of milk.

yum yum, this made an excellent breakfast although I did tweak it a bit! I used no sugar as for me that doesn't exactly appear healthy. Also I had no berries so I used pecans instead, and only had pear and apple yogurt wich worked fine. very filling and I will certainly be making this one again... :)

Delicious, however i found substituting the strawberries for a handful of raisins per person was much more delicious :)

I have something similar most mornings. I mash the banana and mix it into the porridge which sweetens it so there is no need for poisonous sugar. I use skimmed milk or sometimes almond milk. I often add berries if there are any to hand and sprinkle pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and sometimes hemp. I then add home made easiyo yogurt. I also sometimes add turmeric. This provides soluble and insoluble fibre, health fats, amino acids, protein and tastes very good.

This is a real nice filling breakfast which will see you through until lunchtime. I didn't have any berries and it was still scrumptious with just bananas definitely cook the bananas beforehand for an extra sweet treat!

SUCH a nice way to do porridge. The recipe was simple, and the ingredients and flavours went really well together. I'll definitely be making it on the weekends as my treat-breakfast!

Delicious breakfast. Often have cinnamon porridge at home, but never thought to add banana into the cooking- nice touch. I added mixed berries to the topping, strawberries and blueberries. I also love the idea of the yoghurt on the porridge. Yummy and filling!

Fabulous breakfast. I substituted unsweetened coconut milk and it's wonderfully creamy. Instead of sugar I used a bit of Stevia and 1/2 tsp of Molasses. Lovely!

Loved this, a really tasty and satisfying breakfast, a great way to start the day. I added a handful of raisins as well which went really well with the cinnamon. Defiantly trying this one again.
