Porridge Berry Bakes

This recipe was shared to me by heartsetonliving, in a comment on this post, “Banana, oat and blueberry pancakes” and I wanted to share this in a separate post after making them myself. Heartsetonliving also shared them on her own post here too; “Driven to distraction before languishing in limbo.”

While they were baking, the smell was flowing beautifully throughout my home and taste lovely. It’s nice knowing that these are guilt free too, because they are naturally sweet and have no added sugar.


2 ripe bananas
2 eggs
vanilla extract
2 and a half cups of porridge oats
1 and a half teaspoon of baking powder
1 and a half cups of milk


  1. Mash two ripe bananas with two eggs and a bit of vanilla extract.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix two and a half cups of porridge oats with some cinnamon and one and a half teaspoons of baking power.
  3. Now mix everything together and add one and a half cups of milk.
  4. Put mixture into greased or silicone muffin tins, then add your berry toppings of choice. e.g. blueberries or strawberries.

Bake at 180 degrees for around 30 minutes.

These bakes can be made vegan-friendly if you omit the eggs and replace with another banana, but it will make a more dense cake.



Mystery package

I received a couple of packages today, but one of them I wasn’t expecting and it is a mystery, because I did not order this. It came from Blurt and I received a colouring book and a postcard with a positive quote. A lovely gift received. Thank you, if you are reading this.


The boring stuff I know, but please read and observe. Thank you.

I have a Policies and Disclaimer page on my blog for a reason. It covers me, but it also helps you as a reader and if you are a blogger yourself, it is advisable to have one, if you don’t have one already.
I know there are people who do read this page looking at my stats, but there are also a very small amount of people that don’t follow the “policies/disclaimer” page, or don’t read it. So this is why I have now copied this page and added it to this post. But because this page can change, it is your responsibility to keep up with the original page, which you can find here, or at the top of my page, labelled, “Policies/Disclaimer.” 

Although I have personal experiences in mental health and expanding on my knowledge, please do not seek advice from me by emailing me, instead, speak to an appropriate qualified person for the query you have. I also have a “Helpful Links” page, where there some useful links. 

Also, I cannot give advice via email on other people’s blogs or video reviews, etc… Blogging is a learning curve for everyone and even I have had to teach myself on this platform, as well as other previous blogs platforms I have used. This may sound harsh, but I write my blog for free, so I can only devote so much time due to other commitments.
My email is on the side of the blog for only one reason and that is for queries regarding this blog.

Thank you for taking note of this post and for reading this post. I do hope you continue reading the rest below and keep yourself up to date from time to time, by checking my original page, in case it has changed.

Book review: ‘Deliciously Ella Every Day,’ by Ella Woodward.


‘Deliciously Ella Every Day,’ by Ella Woodward is her second book. The book focus on eating well as easy as possible, focusing on easy accessible ingredients. It covers breakfast, healthy eating on-the-go, salads, easy weekday dinners, big batch cooking simple sweets. There are over 100 recipes in this book.

It was from this book that I tried a quinoa and ginger porridge one time, for my breakfast. Not something I would have thought of having and so it made a change for me.

Although I have not delved in this book much, it is still a book that remains on my bookshelf for alternative ideas and new inspirations.
