ProPoints: 5 Prep Time: 1 minute Cook Time: 4 minutes
40g Porridge Oats
handful Berries (I used frozen forest fruits)
150ml Skimmed Milk
I mainly eat oats for breakfast, either Oatibix, Oatiflakes or porridge. I find that wheat tends to make me bloat a lot. I did have a test for coeliac which came back negative but I think my body’s not a big fan so I try keep the amount of wheat I consume to a minimum. Other cereals like corn and rice just don’t fill me for more than an hour or so, but I find oats fill me for 3-4 hours.
This recipe is delicious, really easy and quick to do and it’s low in sugar. It’s also only 5 ProPoints for those who follow weight watchers and is guaranteed to leave you feeling full for a good few hours.
1. Weigh out your oats in a large-ish cereal bowl. Measure out your water and skimmed milk in a jug and add this to the oats.
2. Pop in the microwave for 4 minutes.
3.Meanwhile get your berries. (I used frozen berries, they’re cheap and delicious) and defrost them if needed. Add some sweetener to taste. I used quite a bit because I’m not sweetening the porridge.
4. Keep an eye on your porridge to make sure it doesn’t boil over in the last minute or so. Give it a stir if it is rising a lot.
5. Add your berries to the porridge once cooked. If you have a real sweet tooth and it’s not quite enough for you add a teaspoon of honey for a ProPoints value of 6.
