Winter Breakfasts

Since I am very much stuck under a sleeping, wheezing toddler this evening, I thought I'd take the opportunity to share with you a couple of hot winter breakfast recipes that we have been making a lot recently.

The first is our beloved breakfast oaties. As usual for me, not so much a recipe as a general suggestion! Mix a mashed banana or stewed apple with enough oats to make a stiff mixture, add chocolate chips or cinnamon if they take your fancy, and bake for five minutes, until the tops start to look brown. These are, I have to tell you, the bees knees when it comes to easy breakfasts. My boys love them!

The second is my dairy-free, gluten-free, no added sugar tropical rice pudding. This has measurements, so pay attention! Mix in your slow cooker:

1 tbsp coconut oil
50g pudding rice
1 can coconut milk
fruit (I use frozen mango and pineapple designed for smoothies)

Cook on high for about one hour to 90 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed into the rice. This is very much a hale and hearty, rib-sticking breakfast for sending the family out into a cold day. It also does good service as a hot pudding!
