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.

I thought I'm a breakfast master and nothing can surprise me in this world when it comes to a morning meal, but this was simply delivious! I love porridge and anything that goes with it but this combination simply blew my mind. Lovely!

Love finding alternatives to breakfast. I have just posted all about the dangers of eating cereal, and a great porridge alternative. Check it out!

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.
