A very Berry Porridge
Berry porridge with peanut butter and muesli topping
I decided to make an all-in-one breakfast. Instead of making plain porridge with sultanas and banana for my partner, muesli with peanut butter and honey for my son, and porridge with berries for me, I decided to make all three in one.
How did I manage that? Elementary, my dear readers. I made a three-layer porridge. The first layer consisted of plain porridge made with soy milk and oats. For the second layer, I made a berry porridge. The third layer was the decorative one of bananas, muesli, a dollop of peanut butter and a drizzle of honey. How did it go? As far as my son and I were concerned it was a success we loved it. My partner on the other hand preferred his traditional sultanas and banana porridge. (You win some you lose some) As for me I will continue to try new tasting breakfasts, as much as I like certain classics, it’s only a matter of time before I go back to the laboratory for a new experiment. In the meantime I recommend you try this one. I think it’s a real treat.
2 cups cooked porridge (see porridge recipe listed under ‘breakfasts’ on my Facebook page)
1/2 cup frozen strawberries, thawed and heated up in the microwave
1 banana cut into circles
1 tablespoon peanut butter
2 teaspoons honey (or according to taste)
1/2 cup toasted muesli
Pour one cup of cooked porridge into a bowl.
Mix berries with second cup of cooked porridge and spread on top of prepared porridge
Placed bananas in a ring around the edge of the dish and created a smaller ring inside that with muesli, leaving a circle of the berry porridge exposed in the middle. Place a tablespoon of peanut butter on top of the berry porridge, drizzle with honey and, voila, an all-for-one-and-one-for-all porridge.
