Maple syrup

Bananas, honey and cinnamon or maple syrup and pistachios. I also add some ground flaxseed. I also love summer porridge i.e an overnight oats/Bircher version with grated apple, natural yoghurt and berries, when it's not cold enough for hot porridge.

Yum yum

Banana, honey and cinnamon or sultanas and honey, or maple syrup, or blueberries.

I wonder if carrot porridge would work? Like carrot cake?

Cream or prunes, not together though.

I'm on Slimming World so I grate courgette (quite a bit) into my oats (40g) and add Alpro Chocolate Soya drink (200ml). Weird as that is, I absolutely love it! The courgette doesn't really taste, just adds a bit of something and bulks it out and the chocolate milk is chocolatey without too many calories. I have it every day and feel a bit sad if I have to miss it!

Oh everything I may try that!
Do you grate the courgette in as the porridge is cooking?
How much? Half of one ?

Sparklefarts - It's really delicious (I think!). It's called Zoats in America (zuchini and oats - although I don't think they put chocolate milk in). It's hard to say how much courgette as they differ so much in size. Basically put it all in a pan and add the courgette then cook. Start off with a small amount and if you like it, add more in next time you make it. I have quite a bit nowadays because I love the fact that it bulks out my porridge and is at least 1 of my 5 (or is it 10) a day. If you are on SW, it counts as your Hex A and B.

And even nicer topped with a banana...

I love thick creamy sweet porridge.

TakeMe2Insanity Wed 06-Sep-17 13:35:29

Frozen raspberries
Almond butter
Blueberry powder

Generally I'm quite virtuous and stir frozen berries and mixed seeds into my porridge while I'm making it.

But my favourite would have to be a big spoonful of nutella blush

JDScrubs Wed 06-Sep-17 14:25:31

Honey and frozen fruit cooked down.

I had golden syrup and creme fraiche this morning, it was delicious.

lynmilne65 Wed 06-Sep-17 14:59:45

brown sugar and cream😄

I'm a porridge virgin in my 40s. I recently bought a bag of porridge oats. How do I prepare hot porridge?

EnglishGirlApproximately Wed 06-Sep-17 20:30:59

gotta that's a controversial question grin I do oats then half milk half water, purists will tell you just water and salt then others will say all milk

glorious Wed 06-Sep-17 20:34:21

I sometimes mix in cocoa powder and add raisins
Tinned pumpkin and cinnamon and nutmeg
Banana and cinnamon
Frozen berries
Grated apple

Gotta my preference is for 1/2 cup of oats to 1 cup of milk. Heat slowly in a pan whilst stirring, so that the oats go soft and creamy. Much nicer than doing in in the microwave imo, I find that the oats don't soften as much. Add toppings / extras to suit.

EnglishGirlApproximately Wed 06-Sep-17 20:56:34

Agree definitely not in the microwave, stir and heat slowly on the hob to make extremely creamy
