The type of oats you choose for your porridge is really down to the texture that you prefer. Jumbo or rolled oats give you a thicker, chunkier texture, but these porridge oats  will give a finer, smoother texture.

 

Cooking with Porridge Oats

 

The slower you cook your oats, the creamier you porridge will be. Porridge oats work well cooking on the hob – bring the liquid to the boil then turn down to a simmer for five minutes. If you prefer to use a slow cooker, then jumbo oats will work the best.

 

To mix things up, just add flavour. Nut butters such as peanut, almond, hazelnut or cashew can take porridge to another level. The good fats in the nuts will also provide an extra energy boost and you'll feel fuller for longer.

 

You can also try adding spices like cinnamon, nutmeg or mixed spice at the end of cooking for a christamas feel, or vanilla extract, creamed or desiccated coconut or a touch of jam for something different. If you fancy a sweet boost, try honey, maple syrup or agave as an alternative to refined sugar.

 

You could also try adding fruit puree (stew some fruit with a little syrup or sugar), some sliced fruit or berries, some crunchy granola clusters, chopped nuts, or even roasted butternut squash with crispy bacon – this might be the tastiest, quirkiest porridge you’ve ever had! 

 

Oats are also great in smoothies, baking into muffins and biscuits, to use as a crumble topping and also they are great to make into oat milk.
