This tip ‘n’ mix porridge recipe is juuuust right for those chillier mornings when you need warming up from the inside out.

A quick and filling brekkie is a camping essential, especially if you’re on an overnight hike and don’t have time for dilly-dallying and dishes in the morning. Avoid smashed cinnamon jars and spilt oat packets and prep this campfire porridge at home. Then, just cover your oats in boiling water and brew your coffee. That’s brekkie done in 5 mins flat! Don’t be surprised if every girl with gold, curly hair in the campground wants a taste.
