Simple Porridge Recipes; Banana and Peanut Butter Porridge


Savoury banana egg Porridge recipeWow don’t Monday’s roll around quickly! To get you ready for Monday morning I’m posting the second recipe, in my series of ‘Simple Porridge Recipes’, to give you a good start to the new working week.

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!
