Protein Packed Banana Porridge

Protein Banana Porridge HORIZ2 2

Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup milk, plus extra to add during cooking
  • 1 banana, preferably overripe
  • 1-2 eggs (use 2 eggs if they are small)
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • Honey or maple syrup to taste

Method

  1. Finely slice or mash the banana and set aside. Whisk the egg/s and set aside.
  2. Place the oats, water and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low and cook, stirring gently, for about 5 minutes or until the mixture starts to soften and thicken.
  3. Add the banana, whisked egg and a pinch of cinnamon and cook for a further 2-3 minutes, stirring continuously, until the ingredients have been thoroughly incorporated and the egg has cooked into the porridge. If the porridge is too thick, add extra water or milk.
  4. Serve the porridge hot with a drizzle of honey or maple syrup. Add toppings as desired.
