- 1 cup (90 g) rolled oats
- 1½ cups (375 ml) reduced-fat soy milk
- ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tbsp coarsely chopped dry-roasted almonds
- ¼ tsp each poppy seeds, sesame seeds, black chia seeds and linseeds
- 2 tsps sunflower seeds
- ½ medium banana, sliced thickly
- 2 tsps pure maple syrup
Place oats, soy milk and cinnamon in a small saucepan over low heat, bring to a gentle simmer; cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 mins or until mixture has thickened and oats are tender.
Meanwhile, combine nuts and seeds in a small bowl.
Serve porridge topped with banana; sprinkle with nut and seed mixture, drizzle with maple syrup.
TIP This recipe is low-GI. You could swap banana for an even more low-GI fruit such as strawberries, grapes, peaches or plums. Use traditional rolled oats rather than instant oats for a better texture. You can use white chia seeds, if preferred.
