Apple and Cinnamon Porridge

This is my current favourite breakfast, it is so filling, creamy and delicious. I know English people aren't used to adding much unsuual to their porridge but the Americans are very versatile in their oatmeal creations and there are tonnes of lovely choices out there.

Apple and Cinnamon Porridge
Serves: 1
1 small apple
20g raisins
1/3 cup oats
1 cup water
100g low fat yoghurt
3 tsps sweetener
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp lemon juice

This is best prepared the night before and left to soak in the fridge over night, but can be prepared when you need it.
Core the apple and slice into fine slivers.
Add the water, oats, cinnamon, lemon juice and apple slivers to a pan and leave in the fridge overnight if you have time.
When breakfast time arrives, boil the mixture, constantly stirring until thick and gloopy, you may need to add more water if it thickens before the apple has softened.
Put the raisins, sweetener and yoghurt into the serving dish, give them a quick stir. When the porridge is at the desired consistency, let it cool a few degrees and add it to the yoghurt mixture. If the porridge is too hot, the yoghurt will curdle.
Stir well and enjoy!
