Really enjoyed this, very filling. Took a small portion for a mid morning snack as a lot to eat at breakfast.

We struggled to eat all this so would cut down the amount of oats by half next time. Very nice & no additional sweetner needed.

I agree with the comments below, a lovely tasty breakfast, it was sweet enough for me as I don't normally add sugar to things and I also used mixed frozen berries rather than raspberries. Very nice looking forward to having this again.

A really tasty breakfast and super easy to make, I made it exactly to the recipe. It makes me want to get up in the mornings! It was filling, which was great as it keeps you going all morning. I am now thinking how easy it can be to swap the fruit around, maybe add some cinnamon, for when I fancy a change.

This is a very pleasant breakfast dish. However, the quantities for 2 are huge. I cut down the 70g of porridge oats to 30g and we still found it too much with the addition of the banana, raspberries and yoghurt. I also felt it needed a bit of sweetening as raspberries are tart and the banana doesn't add much sweetness, so perhaps a teaspoon of raw honey would be good? I used one tbsp of linseeds and one tsp of chia seeds and dry-toasted the oat/seed mixture before adding the hot water.

It's instead of milk, to keep calories low I assume. No idea why it has to be hot though, I use cold milk

"No idea why it has to be hot though, I use cold milk". Well, the boiling water really speeds up the time it takes the oats to swell up and, I suppose, partially cooks them. I also normally use just cold milk but it takes longer for the oats and seeds to swell and absorb the liquid.

I cannot bear the taste of bananas. Is there an equivalent I can use? Or shall I just leave it out?

What is the reason for pouring over boiling water in this recipe please?

I would think its to cook the oats and make them more easily digestible.

I found it helps to make all the ingredients nice and soft, and made it easier to mash up the banana and frozen raspberries.
