  • 1 mug of oats
  • 2 mugs of milk (we used almond drink but any will do)
  • 2 carrots, peeled and grated
  • A handful of walnuts, chopped
  • A handful of seeds
  • A pinch of ground cinnamon
  • A pinch of mixed spice
  • A drizzle of honey or agave syrup

*We topped ours with spicy, crunchy honey cinnamon pumpkin seeds. Heat your oven to 100°C and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Drizzle your seeds with a little honey or sprinkle with sugar. Dust with a teaspoon of cinnamon and pop in the oven for 10 mins. When they come out the oven they may be a little stuck together. Just break them apart and scatter over your porridge.
