Apple & Blackberry Porridge

No longer shall porridge have a reputation of being like wallpaper paste! Jazzed up with blackberries it’s transformed into a lovely flavourful breakfast.  The protein from the milk combined with the complex carbs in oats will make you feel fuller for longer.

Jennifer’s Tip

  • It’s worth investing in a good heavy based, non-stick pan if you’re going to be a regular porridge chef, as washing up anything other than non stick is tedious with porridge stuck to it!
