Porridge with Caramelised Banana

Porridge with caramelised banana

This breakfast is the ultimate bowl of nourishment for those cold mornings. The caramelised banana adds a delicious layer of sweetness to a traditional porridge recipe.

Serves 1

Prep time: 5 mins

Cook time: 15 mins


1/2 cup rolled oats

1 cup milk, plus extra for serving

1/2 cup water

1 ripe banana

1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1 tbsp pepitas

Drizzle of honey


Prep your banana by slicing it into 3cm diagonal chunks, set aside.

Pour oats into a small, heavy-based saucepan and add in milk and water. Bring to the boil then turn heat down to low and allow to cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring often to ensure the oats don’t stick to the bottom. Your oats are ready when they are plump and soft.

While the oats are cooking, toast the pepitas in a small frypan with the oil. Pour pepitas into the oats and cook the banana in the same pan. Cook on each side until golden and caramelised.

Pour the oats into a bowl and top with the caramelised banana and a drizzle of honey and milk.
