With breakfast being my favourite meal of the day, I thought a special breakfast post is in order! After discovering 'What Should I Eat For Breakfast Today' blog ( I am inspired by the wonderful recipes & mouth watering photos, I thought I'd attempt a twist on the traditional porridge. Porridge is the perfect fuel for the day with oats full of slow-release energy & if then piled high with health food toppings, you are good to go!

Meet My Coconutty Peanut, Sultana, Banana & Honey Jumbo Oat Porridge! 

My recipe consists of...

1/2 cup of Scottish jumbo rolled oats ( I use a medium mug, but just select certain sizes depending on your hunger level!)
1/3 cup of coconut milk (perfect to use up leftovers from last night's homemade curry!)
2/3 cup semi-skimmed milk

Pour all ingredients into small pan
Bring to the boil, stirring constantly
Turn down heat & keep stirring until you reach your desired thickness
Now it's time to add your toppings...

2 tablespoons of milled linseed mix (I chose the savory gojiberry, sunflower & pumpkin seed variety, as I'm combining it with sweeter toppings. The superfood seeds are a tasty mix which help your body absorb nutrition easier. Available from all good health food shops, although this one is a bargain from aldi & is just as good!)...

2 teaspoons of runny honey...

3 pinches of sultana & peanut mix...

And finally 1 banana...

Bon appetite!
