As the weather starts to cool down, we’re looking for warming bowls first thing in the morning. And when oats are filled with protein and fiber, it’s a perfect choice. Porridge is one of those things that we’ve all been eating since before we can remember. But these days, there are so many different recipes, and it’s really easy to personalise. Here are some of our favourite porridge recipes from some of our favourite recipe creators, when you need inspiration.

If you’re not that into grains, don’t worry. This staple can be made with a whole range of things.
