As we all try to shift those festive pounds, here’s some healthy White’s porridge recipes that will have you feeling fab in the New Year.

What you'll need

2 cups of fresh berries of your choice

½ tsp ground cinnamon

2 tbsp of brown sugar

50g flour

2 tbsp of water

Pinch of baking soda

1 tbsp of lemon juice

25g margarine/butter melted

75g White's Porridge Oats

To make the filling combine the berries, water, lemon juice and half a teaspoon of cinnamon in a medium saucepan. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat.

Simmer, uncovered, for about eight minutes or till slightly thickened, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.

In a mixing bowl, stir together the flour, oats, brown sugar, a quarter of a teaspoon of cinnamon, and baking soda.

Stir in the melted fat until thoroughly combined.

Set aside one cup of oat mixture for topping.

Press the remaining oat mixture into an ungreased 9x6x2-inch pan.

Bake in a 180°C/gas 4/350°F oven for 20-25 minutes.

Carefully spread the filling on top of the baked crust, then sprinkle with reserved oat mixture.

Lightly press oat mixture into filling. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes more or until the topping is set. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars.
