    I haven't had porridge as such for several months (tend to eat it more in the winter) but I just buy plain ole Sainsbury porridge oats, mix with water (think it's three measures of water to one of oats) and a pinch of salt, then cook over a low heat stirring occasionally. I do like to add about half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder at the beginning. It's nice with a few raisins added as well, but you'd have to syn those. Sometimes I slice a banana on top, and/or add a spoonful of yogurt. It's up to you to find what you like in addition - just remember to count any syns! And don't forget the scanbran!! :)

    I cheat and use oatso simple the original plain one and add ie berries, or 1 tsp golden syrup (1 syn) to it, its already in 28g servings, so ultra simple and just 2 1/5 mins in the microwave :D

    I have the plain oatso simple as a hexB. I make it with skimmed milk. In the summer it is nice with any fruit on top. In winter, stir frozen berries through it. Or chopped apple with a pinch of cinnamon. Love it.

    The portion you get in the oats so simple packet is really generous I think!! Normally split it in 2!!!

    I think I said in an earlier post on this thread that I usually only have it in winter, but for the last three days I decided on my cinnamon porridge with added berries (and a bit of yogurt) for breakfast - must be under the influence! [Of this thread :)]
