Honey & Banana Breakfast Oats

This is probably my new favourite breakfast for early weekday mornings. I used to think that oatmeal porridge was something people ate in a grey and distant past, inspired by some outdated Calvinist notion about character building and the dangers of early-morning hedonism, or simply because they hadn’t invented nice breakfast foods yet. I was wrong. Porridge can be both comforting and tasty.  Here’s how to make sure it is.


Ingredients for 1 bowl

250 ml(coconut or cow’s) milk*

1 banana, sliced

1 tsp raw honey

40-50 g oatmeal


Add the oats to the milk in a little pan and heat for about 10 minutes while stirring regularly. When the porridge has acquired your desired consistency, put it in a bowl. Add the sliced banana and the honey and enjoy. It’s as simple as that.


* Both regular milk and coconut milk (I use Alpro Coconut Drink) work equally well. I like to vary between them from time to time, but if you’re using cow’s milk, make sure it is fresh and of good quality. Trust me, it’s worth paying a little extra for.
