Recipe | Banana Porridge with Maple Syrup

Good morning lovelies!

Today I wanted to share one of my favourite breakfast treats with you guys and that is my delicious organic porridge with banana, maple syrup and of course a sprinkle of cinnamon!

Porridge is one of my favourite breakfast staples! It is so versatile and goes well with such a massive variety of toppings. My favourite way to eat porridge believe it or not is as plain as it gets, made on water with a dash of milk after cooking and a hearty spoonful of sugar - just as my Mammy used to make for me.

This recipe comes in a close second! I absolutely love every single ingredient in this dish - so let me show you how its done!

Hearty Banana Porridge

Preparation Time: 2 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Total: 10 - 12 minutes

Ingredient List:

1/2 cup Organic Porridge Oats / Oats of your choice
1 cup Semi-Skimmed Milk
1 large Banana
1 tbsp Maple Syrup
Cinnamon to taste


1. Add your oats and milk to a large saucepan and turn your heat on medium to high.

2. Add a small pinch of salt and stir.
3. Once bubbling turn your heat down and simmer for 6 minutes. Make sure you stir your porridge often to ensure that it does not stick to your pan. If your porridge becomes too thick - you could add a small dash of water at a time and stir to a creamier consistency. I like to keep a cup of water beside me as I am cooking and add in small intervals if needed.

4.While your porridge is bubbling away, cut your banana in half. Peel one half and mash to a smooth consistency using a fork. Put the other half to one side for toppings later.
5. Add your mashed banana to your porridge and cook for a further minute.

6. Take your porridge off the heat and pour into your bowl.

7. Slice the remainder of your banana and top your porridge.

8. Swirl a tablespoon of maple syrup around your porridge and finish off with a sprinkle cinnamon to taste.

Alternative / Substitute toppings:

Try honey instead of maple syrup or even a light sprinkle of muscavado brown sugar instead of cinnamon!

You could of course also add some toasted almonds, seeds or nuts to give your porridge some crunch!
