There should always be time for breakfast – whether it’s a smoothie on the run, Bircher ready from last night or a sit down breakfast with the lot. So important to start your day off right! Full of nutrients!
This is my quick and easy Oat Porridge, I like to make this recipe before work, after work or just when I need a quick, easy and yummy meal.
Note: If you are coeliac or avoiding oats you can replace them with soaked organic buckwheat and increase the liquid or replace it with rolled quinoa or amaranth. Another option is to use uncontaminated oats – these oats have not been processed around any wheat or gluten containing grains, and therefore are often better tolerated than regular whole organic oats.
1/2 cup of organic oats
2 tbsp chopped almonds
1 tbsp sunflower seeds
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp pipitas (pumpkin seeds)
1 tbsp linseeds
1 tsp cinnamon and a pinch of ground nutmeg and ginger
1 cup of nut milk
To serve: a 1/4 of a banana and chopped pecans and extra pipitas
1. In a small saucepan add in the oats, nuts, seeds and spices along with the milk
2. Over a low to medium head, continually stir the porridge until the oats have softened. – you may need to add in more nut milk to the saucepan if mixture starts to dry out before the oats have cooked.
3. Serve warm, topped with fresh fruit and a sprinkle of nuts and seeds.
