Fresh Winter Mornings have us craving something warm and nourishing…. Below is a delicious recipe using pollen for a traditional bowl of porridge with added health benefits.
Bee pollen is amazing for keeping your energy levels up and giving you that boost you need throughout the day: high in antioxidants and good fatty acids as well as an amazing source of protein, this is nature’s superfood.
Ingredients (for two)
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup milk
1 cup water
Pinch of salt
Teaspoon of oil
Organic wildflower bee pollen
To a saucepan on medium heat, add 1 cup of oats, 1 cup water and 1 cup milk. Add a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, stirring, then reduce heat and let oats simmer for around five minutes. While oats are simmering, slice a banana in half lengthways. Add a little oil to a pan and place banana in pan. Let banana caramelise in pan for two minutes, flipping once. Bring both oats and banana off heat. Pour oats into bowls, layer on banana and sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon and pollen along with a generous drizzle of honey. Yum!
Our Apiary Made pollen, lovingly created by bees, is organic and sourced ethically from happy bees only when there is a surplus to the requirements of the hive. The apiaries themselves are located in a pristine environment with an abundance of food for the bees. Available on our shop page.
Not a fan of banana or just want something different?
There are so many combinations you can try- pollen with it’s nutty, honey flavour compliments a range of flavours.
We reccomend a delicious combination of sliced apple, cinnamon and yoghurt as toppings with your oats and pollen.
