  • 2 bananas, peeled
  • 100g porridge oats
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon, plus a pinch to serve
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 300ml milk of your choice, plus a splash
  • 2 tbsp peanut or almond butter, plus extra to serve
  • 2 tbsp flaked or chopped almonds
  • 2-4 tbsp natural yogurt, to serve (optional)


  1. Mash 1 banana in a bowl with a fork until smooth. Stir in the oats, cinnamon, maple syrup, milk and peanut butter. Mix well, then cover and chill overnight.

  2. The next morning, stir the porridge, adding another splash of milk if the mixture is quite stiff. Divide between two bowls. Slice the remaining banana and scatter this over the porridge, drizzle with more nut butter and sprinkle over the almonds. Top with spoonfuls of yogurt, if using, and sprinkle with a pinch more cinnamon before serving.
