Mince Pie Porridge Recipe

Our gut health often suffers around the festive season due to increased alcohol, late nights and festive foods – mince pies, yule logs and bigger portions than we can comfortably handle! 🤕 ⁠

Support your gut by starting the day right with a healthy breakfast! I’ve created this Mince Pie Porridge for a delicious gut-friendly start to the day during the festive period (or anytime of year!) 🎄

You could also make the mincemeat and use it to fill your mince pies (of course), or use it as a topping over yoghurt, granola, pancakes and anything else you fancy!
