Gluten Free Masa Harina Porridge with Apple, Cinnamon and Walnuts

This is real comfort food and lighter than porridge made with oats. If  you just need something warm and nutritious to fill your tummy and to ward of the winter chills try it!

Whisk together until smooth

1/2 cup of trim milk
11/2 tbsp Tio Pablo  masa harina ( or 1 tbsp if you want it to be a more runny consistency)
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon (or to taste)
1 tbsp brown sugar/maple syrup

Put all  in a microwave bowl and microwave on high for 11/2 minutes  ( whisking at 30 second intervals)
Add 1/2 grated apple ( leave the skin on if you wish) or  1/2 finely chopped apple and 2-3 tablespoons of raisins
Sprinkle with chopped walnuts before serving and drizzle a little more maple syrup on top
or sprinkle with a mixture of castor sugar, cinnamon and chopped walnuts.

This is also quite nice left to chil in the fridge overnight  ( rather similar to Bircher muesli). If it thickens too much it can easily be thinned with a little more milk. Add the nuts and more maple syrup
