Manuka honey is very special indeed – it has natural antibacterial properties and is delicious. You can, of course, increase quantities for greater numbers, but use this as your master recipe. It is very filling and will keep hunger at bay for hours.

Prep 5   :   Serves 1


  • 50g porridge oats
  • 250ml semi-skimmed or skimmed milk, plus extra to drizzle
  • 1 tsp manuka honey
  • 2-3 ready-to-eat dried figs, chopped
  • ½ banana, sliced


  1. Heat the porridge oats and milk in a pan and, when simmering, cook briskly for 2-3 minutes, stirring all the time. Add a tablespoon or so of water if it’s too thick.
  2. Spoon the porridge into a warm bowl, top with a drizzle of milk, a swirl of manuka honey and scatter with the figs and banana.
