Just when you thought porridge couldn’t get any better I added buttery caramelised apples and pecans with a dash of maple syrup. This is so good it made me cry.
Heat the oats, milk and a squeeze of maple syrup in a saucepan, stirring all the time until the porridge thickens and becomes a thick creamy eating consistency. It’ll only take a few minutes but you shouldn’t be able to see the milk, it should all be absorbed.
Mean time melt a big pat of butter in a heavy frying pan and fry the apple slices and pecans, turning the apples when the brown, so they go golden on both sides and soften.
Tip the porridge into a wide cereal or dessert bowl (you need space to arrange the apples on top) then place the caramelised apple slices on top and scatter the crunchy pecans over.
Add a swirl of maple syrup and even a swirl of cream for pure heaven!
Oats are particularly high in manganese which is great for healthy bone formation, healthy skin and helping to control blood sugar. Oats are a wholegrain, that means the good stuff hasn’t been removed. Wholegrains are an important source of B vitamins and fibre.
Oats are a great source of the soluble fibre called beta-glucan. That’s what makes porridge kinda viscous and it stays quite viscous as it passes through you, sweeping up any excess cholesterol as it goes. A happy gut is at the heart of good health!
Oats do a special thing – as they pass through your intestine their bulk presses against its muscly walls. It presses back in response and by doing so its muscles get stronger. Oats are literally like a sparring partner for your digestive tract!
