About this recipe: Here's a cosy start to a winter's day. This spicy cinnamon porridge, with its cargo of rich apricots, is sweetened with golden syrup. Best of all, it takes only minutes to prepare.

Serves: 1 

  • 40 g (1½ oz) instant porridge oats
  • 200 ml (7 fl oz) skimmed milk
  • 4 ready-to-eat dried apricots
  • 2 teaspoons golden syrup
  • A pinch of ground cinnamon

Prep:2min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:7min 

  1. Simmer the porridge oats and milk together in a small saucepan for 4-5 minutes until the mixture is slightly thickened and smooth, stirring frequently. If necessary, add a little water to get the texture you prefer.
  2. Meanwhile, chop the apricots.
  3. Stir the syrup and ground cinnamon into the porridge. Pour the porridge into a bowl, sprinkle the chopped apricots on top and serve.
  4. Variation: replace the apricots with a small chopped banana. You can also sprinkle four chopped hazelnuts over the porridge for extra crunch, but this will add 3 g of fat.
