    RECIPE: WINTER FRUIT & NUT PORRIDGE [+GIVEAWAY CLOSED]

    I'm sat writing this tucking into a bowl of porridge at 7pm and d'y know what? I do this a lot more than I'd like to admit. 

    I could eat porridge at pretty much any time of the day. I'm like flipping Goldilocks. It's just so warming and filling and it's basically like my ideal comfort food. Like getting a hug in a bowl.  

    You'll already know I'm a bit of fan of Flahavan's when it comes to my porridge. I've used them to make pretty summer porridge bowls and I even put their oats in my smoothies so when I heard about their latest launch, I got a bit excited!
    Because for the first time, they've launched sachets. Now it's not ground-breaking in the porridge world because let's face it Quaker have been doing this for a while BUT for fans of the brand it's pretty new and exciting.

    I really like Flahavan's. It's got a really natural, earthy taste to it and a fab texture. The oats are rolled so they have a bit of bite and just feel a lot more wholesome! 

    Having the oats in the new sachet format now means I can keep a sachet in my bag and have it for breakfast when I get to work rather than having to worry about finding a stove!

    So to celebrate the launch, I wanted to share on my go-to porridge recipes which is perfect for warming you up on a cold morning!

    What you'll need
    1 sachet of Flahavan's Irish Porridge Oats
    1 tsp honey
    Handful dried fruit (I used sultanas)
    Handful of pistachios
    1 tsp cinnamon

    What you'll need to do
    I used the new Flahavan's Irish Porridge Oats sachets for this recipe so it's SUPER simple. Ideal for doing the mornings when you get to work or when you're at home but short on time!

    1. You just empty the sachet into a bowl then fill the empty sachet with milk (about 190ml) and pour over your oats.

    2. Pop into the microwave for two minutes and then give it a go stir before leaving it to stand for another minute longer. You can also cook on it the hob for the same amount of time (but I'm all about that less washing up life)

    3. Once it's cooled slightly and thickened up, top with your cinnamon, fruit and nuts (and chocolate if you're feeling adventurous) and enjoy!

    Super simple but SO tasty!
