Max loves porridge and would eat it every morning of the year, but especially on a cold winter's day.
2/3 of a cup of porridge oats
1 1/2 cups of water
2 teaspoons of golden syrup
5 dried apricots, chopped

Mix the porridge, water, syrup and chopped apricots in a pot.  Bring the porridge to the boil and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 4 minutes (or as per the instructions on the back of the packet).

Serve either as is or with a splash of milk or a spoon of yoghurt.

You can
use any dried fruit you like.  Sometimes Max mixes in raisins, sultanas or cut up dried peaches instead.  Sometimes he likes slices of banana sprinkled on top too!
