Apple and cinnamon porridge

Now the weather has turned colder in the mornings, its perfect for porridge for breakfast.

It also means I have another option to feed my two year old for breakfast. He’s such a good eater but breakfast seems to be a meal he can take or leave (like his daddy!) This is uncomfortable for me as little (and big) tummies need to start the day with a nourishing and filling breakfast.

Luckily he loves this porridge. In fact he has usually finished the bowl in about 10 seconds flat and then wants to share mine. The only issue we have is waiting for it to cook and then cool down slightly. Once he has decided he wants to eat, he doesn’t like to wait!

It doesn’t need any additional sweetener as the chopped apple gives it that sweet kick. And the chia seeds are really just there to up the nutritional value. They are little powerhouses full of protein, calcium, antioxidents, fibre and omega 3 fats….all the good things!

I love to top it with fresh fruit which is bananas in winter. Stone fruits are over for the year and unfortunately, strawberry season is nearly over (and organic strawberries are starting to get ridiculously expensive).

I hope you enjoy this. It’s going to be made a few times a week from now on in our house!

Recipe Notes

This recipe works just as well with a pear if your don't have apples.

I usually use normal cow's milk but coconut milk is more delicious....it really gives it a creamy texture.

Chia seeds are optional but they up the nutritional value so try not to skip them!
