Ingredients

Method

  • 40 g/1½ oz porridge oats
  • 220 ml/7½ fl oz whole milk
  • 20 g/¾ oz raisins, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 10 g/¼ oz unsalted butter

Ingredients

Method

  1. Line a small baking tray with baking parchment. Place the oats + milk in a small saucepan + bring to the boil, then reduce the heat + simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently, or until the oats are soft.
  2. Transfer to a bowl + stir in the raisins + cinnamon, then spread out the porridge in the tray to about 1 cm/½ inch thick. Cover with clingfilm + chill for 30 minutes to set.
  3. Cut the porridge into 6 fingers each 7 cm/2¾ inches long by 2.5 cm/1 inch wide. Melt the butter in a nonstick frying pan + cook the fingers for 2–3 minutes on each side until golden.

Fun For Little Ones

Older little ones can help to spread the porridge out + flatten it down into the baking tray.

Swap This For That

Try swapping raisins for dried chopped apricots or dates.
