When it’s cold and dark in the mornings, nothing seems more appealing than pressing snooze and spending an extra 10 minutes snuggled up in bed. However, it’s a little easier when you know you’ve got a delicious, warming, nutritious breakfast a few minutes away!
This simple High Protein Apple & Cinnamon Bowl is the perfect winter warmer to start the day. Using just a handful of ingredients and some fresh seasonal fruit, you’ll be well on your way to a great day in no time at all!
For the porridge:
- 55g The Great British Porridge Co Apple & Cinnamon Porridge
- 80ml Mighty Protein Oat M.lk
For the blackberry compote:
- 60g Fresh Blackberries
- 20g Coconut sugar
- 1tsp Lemon Juice
Plums or other fresh seasonal fruit
The night before start by making the Blackberry Compote - this is a great winter porridge topper and can be kept in the fridge and used throughout the week to top your breakfasts.
For the compote, simply add all of your ingredients into a saucepan and simmer over a gentle heat for around 3-5 minutes or until the blackberries start to soften. Once the mixture begins to bubble, turn up the heat and leave it to simmer for around 15 minutes or until the compote is nice and thick. Once the mixture has thickened, pop it into a tupperware pot, set it aside to cool, then leave it in the fridge until you’re ready to use it.
- For this quick and easy winter warmer, start by adding 55g of The Great British Porridge Co Apple & Cinnamon Oats into a saucepan along with the Mighty Protein Oat M.lk. Simmer on a gentle heat for around 5 minutes or until your desired porridge consistency is reached; we like ours thick and creamy! TIP: Make sure to stir continuously to avoid any burning and ensure maximum creaminess!
- Once you’ve reached your ideal porridge consistency, remove from the hob and transfer the mixture into a bowl before topping it with your fresh figs, crushed pistachios, and berry compote.
