This is a favourite breakfast of mine – Vanilla Bean Porridge with Fresh Apple and Cinnamon. It’s a healthy, sugar-free alternative to many breakfast cereals and infinitely tastier (if I do say so myself). It’s also creamy yet fresh, making it the perfect porridge for both summer and winter seasons.

I was inspired to recreate the delicious breakfast I had at the Beach Bums Cafe while visiting friends at Forster on the NSW central coast. It was perfect treat on an overcast and drizzly morning by the beach, but I wouldn’t use as much sugar and honey with my porridge every day.

So this is my twist on Beach Bums Cafe’s Vanilla Bean Porridge with Apple Compote.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup rolled oats

1 cup milk

1 small green apple, cored and grated

1/2 vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped

1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

Method:

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until porridge thickens and begins to bubble (approximately 20 minutes).

Transfer to a bowl and top with nuts if you desire.

Enjoy!

Serves 1.
