Tinned prunes are the best, and can be used in a large array of dishes. This is an easy porridge recipe that will cost no more than 50p per helping, and does not contain any sugar!
Ingredients (serves one)
40g plain porridge oats
4 tbsp tinned prune juice
2 tbsp water
the rest milk (to just cover the oats)
5 tinned prunes and a little more prune juice
2 tbsp yoghurt
1. Place the porridge oats, water and prune juice in a bowl, then gradually add the milk until it just covers the oats. Add more milk if you like your porridge runny.
2. Put the bowl in the microwave, or pour it into a saucepan on the hob, and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring half way.
3. When the porridge is ready, remove it from the microwave and add the yoghurt and prunes - simple. No need for sugar or sweetener, as the prunes and juice contain lots of natural goodness.
