Are you ready for a taste of nostalgia? A popular children’s fairy tale is Goldilocks and the Three Bears; everyone is familiar with the story, in which a little girl wanders into a family of bears’ cottage, eats the baby bear’s porridge, breaks his chair and falls asleep in his bed:
“Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Goldilocks. She went for a walk in the forest. Pretty soon, she came upon a house. She knocked and, when no one answered, she walked right in. At the table in the kitchen, there were three bowls of porridge. Goldilocks was hungry. She tasted the porridge from the first bowl.
“This porridge is too hot!” she exclaimed.
So, she tasted the porridge from the second bowl.
“This porridge is too cold,” she said
So, she tasted the last bowl of porridge.
“Ahhh, this porridge is just right,” she said happily and she ate it all up.”
The fairytale is meant to be a cautionary tale about walking into strangers’ houses and eating and using their belongings; you never know who may be living there!
Instead of wandering into a bear’s house to enjoy some porridge, you can make some for yourself at home with this recipe. To make things a little more fun, we’ve mixed some bananas into this recipe, because, thanks to Baloo’s ‘The Bear Necessities’ we know that bears like bananas.
Have this porridge for breakfast in the morning with a side of tea or orange juice; it’s a healthy meal which will give you a boost of energy for the day ahead!
