1/3 Photos of Porridge With Apples
A recipe we made up while bicycle touring but it would be good while camping or at home too. The apples help make the porridge more interesting when you don't have brown sugar to hand. We have tried adding bananas too but they are best just sliced on top of the porridge, not cooked along with the oats.

Units: US | Metric
- 1Put the water in a large saucepan and boil.
- 2When boiling, pour in the porridge and stir for 1-2 minutes.
- 3At this point you should really turn the heat down while stirring but if your stove does not simmer so well, then just lift the pot away from the heat for a few seconds periodically.
- 4After a minute, put in the apple slices and continue to stir for a further 30-45 seconds.
- 5The porridge should be thickening up by this point. If not, keep it on the heat a little longer.
- 6Take the pot off the heat, cover the porridge and set aside for a couple minutes.
- 7Serve, with any extras you might have to hand like a bit of brown sugar if you are lucky or some honey drizzled over.
- 8You could also replace up to half of the water with milk while you are cooking the porridge for a creamier version.
