    A large, flattish cooking apple, green in appearance but sometimes with specks of red. The flesh…

  • 4 heaped tbsp natural bio yogurt and a sprinkling of ground cinnamon, to serve


  1. Tip the oats, raisins and cinnamon into a large bowl, pour on 800ml cold water, cover and leave to soak overnight.

  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.

Made exactly as per recipe and divided into four bowls - three in the fridge for later. It thickened up considerably after standing for a day in the fridge, and heated up easily in the microwave for next day's breakfast. Really filling, and the yoghurt on top gave a bit of added creamy sweetness.

This is a great addition to my healthy eating month. I like it with water, although it's obviously not as creamy. I switched raisins for dates as that's what I had in the cupboard and I kept the chunks of apple quite big to add a nice texture. When reheating in the microwave extra water is required as it gets thicker over time.

I'm not a fan of using water but thought I would give it another go, still not a fan. Looked like wall paper paste and didn't really like it

Tasty but a bit sloppy for my liking.

I made this following the recipe exactly even though I was concerned about the amount of liquid, but I had to cooked it for longer as it was not at all porridge like initially. It got a bit better but still turned out more like a sloppy bowl of stewed apple - could barely tell it had oats in it. Rather disappointing, will go back to the apple porridge recipe included with a previous healthy eating plan.

Good old porridge. I made it with full-fat milk instead of water and I skipped the yogurt. Personal preference. Also I added honey, because I cannot stand oats without it :) Turned out great as usual.
