This apple and cinnamon porridge is a beautifully comforting and warming recipe to enjoy now the weather has turned cold. Made using creamy oats, sweet stewed apples + kissed with cinnamon – it’s winter in a bowl!
It certainly has cooled down hasn’t it? I don’t know about you, but I am absolutely smitten about it. I’ve said it a million times before, but I luuuuuuuurve cold weather. Cuddly clothes and comforting food are the things I look forward to the most.
And this recipe is as comforting as it gets. Creamy porridge kissed with cinnamon and drowned in sweet apples? Winter in a bowl. A heavenly and healthy, delicious + warm bowl.
You will love it because you can make a big batch on the weekend and store in portion sizes for easy weekday breakfasts on the run. It’s just as good a few days later. Just be sure to store in an airtight container in the fridge and add a dash of milk when microwaving or re-heating on the stove.
What are your favourite things about winter? Winter is my time for hibernating. Not feeling guilty for staying indoors, catching up on reading, writing + watching (even more!!) tv. This year is even more special as I get to spend quality time with my darling daughter which is even more precious now the looming return to work reality is starting to set in. I plan to make the most of it 🙂
This wintery porridge is a comforting breakfast for brisk winter days, preferably served with a large pot of tea.
