Why stand at the stove stirring a porridge pot when you can toss the ingredients in a roasting tray and go back to bed for 30 minutes while it cooks? This is porridge as it should be: creamy and brimming with the flavour of apples, cinnamon and nuts.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
unsalted butter, for greasing
200g rolled oats
2 tablespoons chia seeds
2 eating apples, peeled, cored and chopped into small cubes
70g raisins
70g macadamia nuts or blanched hazelnuts, roughly chopped
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
300ml milk
3 tablespoons runny honey
light brown soft sugar, for sprinkling

To serve (optional):

Quantity Ingredient
yoghurt or milk
fresh fruit of choice

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C. Lightly butter a 30 x 20 x 5-cm roasting tray.
  2. Stir the oats, chia seeds, apples, raisins, nuts, cinnamon and salt together in a large bowl. Stir in 350ml boiling water, the milk and honey. Pour the mixture into the prepared tray and bake for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove the tray from the oven and stir the porridge thoroughly, adding a splash more water if needed to produce the desired thickness. Sprinkle over the sugar and bake for a further 5 minutes. Serve hot with yoghurt or milk and some fresh fruit, if you like.
