Cinnamon porridge with apple
– 50g organic large Oats ( I like a porridge with a bit of bite)
– 300- 400 ml of Almond or Hazelnut milk (low in calories and heart healthy, low glycemic index)
– 1 teaspoon of Cinnamon
– 1 teaspoon of chia seeds ( full of calcium, omega3, antioxidants and provide energy for hours)
– a touch of honey ( antioxidant) or agave to sweeten
– 1 grated Organic apple
Pour the oats, your choice of milk, chia seeds and cinnamon into a saucepan and gentle heat up, once it is boiling reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. How you like you porridge really depends on your taste..i like mine quite thick, and still with a little bite. If you prefer your oats softer cook for a little longer and add extra milk to make it creamier.
Once you are happy with your consistency, serve steaming hot in a bowl, drizzle your honey ( or agave syrup) on top and place the grated apple on top.
Mix up and enjoy
( it is the same recipe for the banana version, but you add 1 sliced banana and a spoon of flaxseed ( high in fibre and stabilizes blood sugar) on top instead of the apple)
