Cinnamon apple & raisin porridge
- Preparation and cooking time
- plus overnight soaking
- Serves 4
Soak these oats, with juicy raisins and warming cinnamon, overnight to help with your digestion – they’ll also cook more quickly and have a creamier texture
- STEP 1
Tip the oats, raisins and cinnamon into a large bowl, pour on 800ml cold water, cover and leave to soak overnight.
- STEP 2
The next day, tip the contents of the bowl into a pan and stir in the apple. Cook over a medium heat, stirring frequently, for 5 -10 mins until the oats are cooked and the apple is soft but still has a bit of bite and texture. Reserve half for the next day and spoon the remainder into bowls. Top each portion with a spoonful of yogurt and dust with some cinnamon.
Porridge is easy to reheat the next day in bowls in the microwave, or in a pan on the hob with a splash of milk or water.
Check the label when buying dried fruit, and avoid ones with sulphur dioxide, an additive used to preserve the colour of the fruit.
