How do you know when Biscoff and Banana Porridge is cooked?

You should simmer this Biscoff and Banana Porridge until the porridge is thick and creamy. This will take around 6-7 minutes.

Here in the UK, the standard advice is to cook food until it has reached 70°C and maintained that temperature for 2 minutes. This is to keep you and your family safe! 

How long can you keep Biscoff and Banana Porridge in the fridge?

Once you’ve put it out, ideally you should eat it within 4 hours.

We’d recommend storing leftovers without adding on the toppings. If you allow any leftovers to cool, make sure to refrigerate in a container with a lid. You can keep leftovers in the fridge overnight to reheat the next day, and add the Biscoff and banana toppings after reheating. 

Can I freeze Biscoff and Banana Porridge?

If you’d like to batch cook this recipe, you can freeze the porridge after cooking, but before adding the toppings. These should be added after reheating. If you plan to freeze the porridge please remember to:

  • Freeze it as soon as it is cold enough.
  • Use a container or bag that is suitable for freezing.
  • Don’t forget to add a label with what it is, and add the date you put it in the freezer.

How do I reheat Biscoff and Banana Porridge?

From chilled: Reheat, loosely covered, in the microwave until piping hot; or reheat on a low heat on the stove in a saucepan covered with a lid. You may need to add a little water if drying out.

From frozen: Allow to defrost overnight in the fridge and reheat following the instructions above.

Would these ingredients work for overnight oats?

    Hey Nicola, you would be best to look at one of our overnight oats recipes and swap out those flavours for the Biscoff spread and banana. Hope that helps!

Unfortunately this can’t be labelled gluten free as the biscoff spread contains gluten.
