Winter energy remedy- porridge with pollen

Celeste Faltyn

Fresh Winter mornings have us craving something warm and nourishing... below is a delicious recipe for a traditional bowl of porridge with the added health benefits of bee pollen.

Bee pollen is amazing for keeping your energy levels up and giving you that boost you need throughout the day: high in antioxidants and good fatty acids as well as an amazing source of protein, this is nature's superfood. 

bee pollen porridge

Ingredients (for two) 
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup milk
1 cup water
Pinch of salt
Teaspoon of oil

Toppings:
Organic wildflower bee pollen
1 banana
Cinnamon
 Honey

Method: 
To a saucepan on medium heat, add 1 cup of oats, 1 cup water and 1 cup milk. Add a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, stirring, then reduce heat and let oats simmer for around five minutes. While oats are simmering, slice a banana in half lengthways. Add a little oil to a pan and place banana in pan. Let banana caramelise in pan for two minutes, flipping once. Bring both oats and banana off heat. Pour oats into bowls, layer on banana and sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon and bee pollen along with a generous drizzle of honey. Yum!

Our Apiary Made bee pollen is organic and sourced ethically from happy bees only when there is a surplus to the requirements of the hive. The apiaries themselves are located in a pristine environment with an abundance of food for the bees. Available on our shop page.

Not a fan of banana or just want something different? You could also try a delicious combination of sliced apple, cinnamon and yoghurt as toppings with your oats and pollen.
