Healthy eating made simple and delicious.

Spice up your life with a hint of cinnamon and cloves in your porridge – and pack in one of your five a day, too!


  • 40g (1½oz) jumbo or whole oats
  • 2 tsp (10g) oat bran
  • Approx 300ml water (to get desired texture)
  • 1 medium eating apple, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground cloves


  1. Put the oats and oat bran in a small, non-stick pan and add the water, then simmer on a low heat for around 10 minutes, stirring occasionally so it doesn’t burn.
  2. Meanwhile, simmer the apple, cinnamon and cloves in a saucepan in 2 tbsp water for around 15 minutes until the apple is soft.
  3. Pour the porridge into a bowl and top with the spiced compote.
  4. Smart tip: Try with pear instead, either fresh when in season or otherwise tinned (in natural juices and drained).
