  • Stir in the raisins and cook until softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve with the nuts, banana, and more milk and brown sugar, if desired.

Serving Notes

The porridge can be made up to 2 days in advance; refrigerate, covered. Since it thickens as it cools, stir in a little more milk when you reheat it (in the microwave or on the stovetop).
