  • 250 gm strawberries cut in half. 1 punnet
  • 80 ml maple syrup 1/4 cup
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 250 ml milk 1 cup
  • 625 ml water 2 1/2 cups
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 whole apricots split in half
  • 1/2 cup muesli crunchy with nuts


  • Put the oats and water and milk into a pot and bring up to boil. Turn down immediately and simmer on low till the oats are softened and the water has evaporated.Turn off and put on a lid and sit for a couple of minutes.
  • Put the strawberries in a bowl with the maple syrup and heat for 1 minute. This should be long enough for the strawberries to be softened and warm. If not, heat them at 1/2 minute increments till soft. This could also be done on the stovetop in a pot.
  • If the porridge is too thick and a little extra milk and warm through. Serve with the strawberries in maple syrup and crunchy muesli on top.
