Since we’re all about cereal, and therefore breakfast, and it’s about three degrees cooler in the mornings than it is in summer here’s a favourite porridge recipe to leave you feeling warm and fuzzy, complete with the goodness of oats, banana and maple syrup. Oh and did I mention the peanut butter? That’s right folks, peanut. freaking. butter.

Kind-of-sort-of inspired by Elvis Presley’s favourite sanga (Nigella Lawson does a beautiful, artery clogging version
here) it’s a peanut butter banana sandwich in a bowl. With oats. Dig in:

{ Peanut Butter Porridge }

1/2 cup oats
1 cup water
1 teaspoon good quality, smooth peanut butter
1 banana
100 per cent pure maple syrup to finish

Place the oats and water in a saucepan, cook on very low until the oats are at your desired consistency. When just cooked and with heat still on, scoop the teaspoon of peanut butter into the saucepan and stir vigorously until melted through. Place in a bowl, top with sliced banana and a good dousing of maple syrup. It’s worth getting out of bed for - honest.
