Pleasing Porridge Please

Visited my friend Frank Golden (poet/novelist/painter) in County Clare last week and he made me the yummiest porridge imaginable. Serious silk purse out of sow's ear job. Mutton dressed as lamb. Well, whatever. Even Finn eats it for breakfast. Here's the recipe:
1) cook your oats - NO SALT
2) pop in a handful of raisins and/or some chopped apple (my addition) while cooking
3) roast a handful of pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, and sunflower seeds - ALL THREE NEEDED
4) serve porridge with layer of seeds on top
5) drizzle with maple syrup or honey
6) add milk - soya/goat/cow - if you like.
No word of a lie, this is delicious.
