This recipe is a great way to use up over-ripe bananas. Instead of the classic Porridge topping of sliced bananas, this recipe cooks the bananas into the Porridge, to give the oats a really banana-ry flavour. So the browner the bananas the better! I also swirl the peanut butter into the Porridge to spread the flavour though the bowl. So bring on Monday morning!
