1. Warm a saucepan on a medium heat. Add the oats and toast them for 1-2 mins. Add 2 mugfuls of water and bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 5-10mins.
2. While the oats simmer, finely grate the apple (no need to peel it) with the sort of grater you'd use for Parmesan – grate the apple right into the pan if you can take the heat, or grate it into a bowl and then stir it through the simmering oats. Compost the apple core and stem.
3. Let the apple porridge simmer, stirring constantly till the oats have absorbed the water and the apples have cooked into the mixture. Trickle in a little more water if needed, as the porridge cooks. When cooked, take the pan off the heat, add a splash of milk and stir it through.
4. Spoon the apple porridge into a couple of bowls. Top with a drizzle of honey or a pinch of brown sugar, and finish with a splash of cold milk or cream. You can also add handful of seasonal berries or chopped dried fruit and some toasted nuts or seeds, if you like.
