Ingredients:

  • 4 Weet-Bix™, crushed
  • 2 cups So Good™ Almond Milk Unsweetened, or milk of choice
  • 1 1/2 tbs brown sugar, divided
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • 1 tbs water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp margarine

Method:

  1. Combine Weet-Bix, almond milk, 1/2 tablespoon of brown sugar, and cinnamon in a saucepan and stir well. Bring to a boil and cook for 30 seconds. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In a small pan or skillet, stir remaining 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, water and vanilla over medium heat. Bring mixture to a gentle simmer and cook for 1–2 minutes until thickened and reduced.
  3. Stir margarine into caramel and immediately remove from heat. Add sliced bananas to pan and stir to coat. 
  4. Serve porridge topped with banana and caramel sauce.

Tips:

  • For a thicker porridge, use 3/4 cup milk initially and add more if necessary.
  • Watch the caramel closely while cooking – you don’t want it to burn!
