My LO has been really fussy with his food over Christmas - this morning he had some of DH's oat so simple golden syrup and finished the whole bowl. I don't want to give him golden syrup porridge so would it be ok to give him the plain stuff and add honey/fruit?

He's nearly 16 months.

Yes. It would be absolutely fine.

My LO loves mashed banana in hers!

fruit, jam and even yoghurt added to porridge /ready brek/weetabix gives alternative flavours

Definitely! My 10 mo loves it. We buy frozen berries and add them while the porridge is cooking. Alternatively, we mash a banana into it.

Adding frozen berries is great for kids as it makes pink porridge which is infinitely more exciting plus it cools it down really quickly. My DS has loved it since about 14mths. Porridge is a very healthy and cheap breakfast (using oats and not the pouches) and you can add all sorts of different stuff to it so it's a good habit to get into!
