Recipe | Protein Porridge

Not quite sure if I can really call this a recipe since it only has a couple of ingredients but I really wanted to share it with you guys so I thought I might as well bung it in with all the other culinary concoctions that I'm loving!
Since it has been my breakfast of choice for the past couple of months, I think protein porridge definitely deserves a post of it's own. Not quite sure how I came about it, but after deciding to whack half a scoop of vanilla whey protein into my brekkie I now can't imagine eating porridge without the stuff. It allows me to reduce the carby calories by using water instead of using milk with porridge by providing the sweetness whilst adding more hunger-curbing protein!
I've actually now worked up to having a whole scoop of protein powder (my current favourite is the bog standard vanilla whey by MyProtein), but I would advice mixing it in slowly to your (already cooked!) porridge to make it combine better.
To make porridge with water is super simple - all you have to do is use double the water that you do oats. I usually use 1/2 cup oats to 1 cup water and then cook over a low-medium heat on the hob in a saucepan. Once it's cooked just slowly mix in the protein powder and then fruit, peanut butter or any other extras you fancy! :)

N.B I wouldn't recommend using water to make porridge if you're not going to add any flavouring to it - it'll more than likely taste more like wallpaper paste than breakfast!
