Nutty sultana porridge

I don’t know about you but I get bored when eating a bowl of ‘same’. That’s why it’s good to add some interest to porridge with juicy raisins and nuts – plus of course they add fibre and nutrients and make you feel fuller. This sultana porridge is really delicious and keeps you full for ages.

Ingredients

  • 50g rolled oats
  • Enough whole milk to make the porridge the consistency you like, maybe 300ml but give or take according to personal preference
  • 2 tablespoons of sultanas
  • A few chopped walnuts
  • Clear honey to taste

Instructions

Make the porridge in the normal way by heating the oats, milk and honey on the stovetop, and stir til thickened – add the sultanas as it cooks so they get plumped up and juicy.

 

Serve with the chopped walnuts and if feeling decadent a tablespoon of cream!

Nutrition Info

Oats

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!

Good honest nutrition

It’s not the horse that draws the cart but the oats.

Portion Guidelines

Instead of living with the bore of weighing food, counting points or calories and tapping everything you eat into a phone you can use nature’s custom-designed tool – your hands!
