  1. Love the idea of banana, peanut paste and honey with my quinoa porridge. I also like that on my crumpets as well. Having porridge with the milk, butter and brown sugar is the way all of our family have eaten porridge. So Yum and filling.

    • Oh my gosh its’ so yummy! I’m going to have to start buying it in bulk, B loves quinoa porridge too 🙂
