What a great breakfast for busy kids heading off to school. Cook the apples and pears the night before and gently warm in the microwave to serve.

Ingredients:
3 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled, halved, cored and roughly chopped
3 Beurre Bosc pears, peeled, halved, cored and roughly chopped
1 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs honey + extra to serve
½ tsp ground cinnamon
4 sachets high protein instant oats with grains
Sliced strawberries and chopped almonds (optional), to serve

Step 1: To make stewed apple & pears, combine apples, pears, lemon juice,
honey and cinnamon in a medium saucepan. Add ¼ cup water. Cover and bring to the boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and gently simmer, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes until just tender. Uncover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 2-3 minutes until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.

Step 2: To serve, cook porridge following packet directions. Spoon porridge
into serving bowls. Top with warm stewed apples and pears. Drizzle with honey. Serve with sliced strawberries and chopped almonds (if liked).
