Pum’s favourite recipes…Maple Coconut Porridge

Ahhh maple syrup…my old friend.  A favourite holiday dessert/breakfast when I was younger and we were holidaying in Florida was pancakes, maple syrup and ice cream.  The maple syrup we used was the big, sweet, sticky bottle from Aunt Jemima mmmm

Now I still love maple syrup but try to buy pure and organic.

60ml of Aunt Jemima Syrup is 210 calories compared to 162 calories in 60 ml of Clarks Pure Maple Syrup.  I also find with the pure syrup you use less of it because it’s a stronger flavour.

Maple syrup is a great addition to most breakfast foods in my opinion but you can’t ever go wrong adding it to porridge.
