Vanilla Porridge

October 3, 2017

This quick and easy vanilla porridge recipe is our new favourite breakfast, do we always say that? It’s super easy to make, delicious, creamy and naturally sweet. You can play around with the toppings and use any mixture of your favourite nuts and fruits. We’ve gone for cranberries, nectarines, banana, walnuts and dried apricots and it was delicious.

If you like your porridge super creamy – a good tip is to soak them in the milk overnight before cooking.

Hope you enjoy!
