Semolina breakfast porridge is a delicious, sweet and nutritious alternative to traditional porridge oats. Made with sliced banana, sultanas and chopped nuts it’s a healthy and filling start to the day too!
Now, if you live in the U.K. and you’re reading this you’ll probably be thinking “why on earth would anyone want to have semolina as a breakfast porridge”?
Well, I’m in the U.K. and I thought that once!
But seriously this semolina breakfast porridge is good! REALLY GOOD!
Also semolina breakfast porridge is actually enjoyed by many other countries around the world as a breakfast staple!
It could be that U.K readers also have recollections (maybe nightmares 😮 ) of semolina being served as those infamous school dinners. With a splodge of jam in the middle.
But this is nothing like that!
So let me tell you how this semolina breakfast porridge came about…….
How This Semolina Breakfast Porridge Came About
Recently, faced with a blown microwave, and unable to microwave my porridge oats for breakfast, I thought I would experiment a little.
So, all I did was simply swap my usual porridge oats for stove cooked semolina and mix in a combination of fruits, seeds and nuts into it. The result, albeit simple, was pretty good!
The banana and honey give the breakfast just the natural sweetening it needs.
Then the cinnamon gives it that delicious spicy flavour you can only associate with cinnamon.
And the chopped nuts provide just a little bit of delicate crunch to top it off.

- 250 ml skimmed milk
- 40 g fine semolina flour
- 20 g sultanas
- 10 g chopped mixed nuts
- 10 g flax seeds optional
- 1 sliced banana
- Pinch of cinnamon
- 1 tsp honey
- Gently heat the milk in a small saucepan and gradually add the semolina, stirring constantly until all the milk is absorbed. The semolina should have a porridge like consistency.
- Stir in the sultanas, chopped nuts and flax seeds.
- Decorate the top with the sliced banana, sprinkle with cinnamon and drizzle with honey
Right so, there you have it, another really simple breakfast alternative that I hope you enjoy.

So folks, as I come to the end of my first week in my new job, I’ve come to realise that I’ll need to make some scheduling changes here, just so I can manage to continue to post twice weekly.
