Amazing Almond Porridge
This was one porridge that didn’t look great on paper but is just so creamy and delicious that you need to try it to believe it.
This breakfast starts the day off so well, because it ticks all the boxes for mums who are tired and struggling with gut issues. We all know we need more fibre to keep our gut bacteria healthy and we also want lots of protein to fill us up and keeps us from wanting chocolate.
This breakfast is low in carbohydrates (suits those on ketogenic diets), high in protein and as a bonus it is also gluten and dairy free 😊.
For those wanting to lose weight, it is low in calories. But the biggest plus for me is that its high fibre with a huge 12.6g of Fibre per serve. Try find that much fibre in a box of cereal 😉.
Serves 4 (Serving size: ½ Cup Porridge, ½ Cup Berries)
Prep: 2 minutes, Cook time: 2 minutes.
Nutrition per serving:
Net Carbs: 6g
Fibre: approx. 12.6g/serve
|8 Tbsp raw sunflower seeds
10 Tbsp almond flour
4 Tbsp linseeds (flaxseeds)
2 ½ Tbsp butter/ghee/coconut oil.
2 1/3 cups water
1 Cup unsweetened almond milk or milk of choice.
½ tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp ground cinnamon
4 tsp of sweetener (honey, coconut sugar, or maple sugar or sugar replacement if you are wanting to keep carbs really low)
2 Cups mixed berries (blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries).
2 tbsp (28g) sunflower seeds (2.1g Fibre)
2 ½ Tbsp almond flour (3g Fibre)
1 Tbsp linseed meal (flaxseed) (3g Fibre)
¾ tsp butter/ghee/coconut oil
¾ Cup water
1/4 Cup almond milk or milk of choice
1/8 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp of sweetener of choice
½ Cup mixed berries (4.5g Fibre)
Place sunflower seeds and linseeds (flaxseeds) to a small food processor and pulse until a flour like texture is achieved. (If you make this regularly, I suggest doing a large batch so that you don’t have to do this daily)
In a bowl combine the sunflower meal, linseed meal, and almond flour and mix.
Place butter or coconut oil* in a small saucepan or Thermomix/thermocooker, warm slightly and then add the flour mixture and water. Stir until well combine and it starts to gel and form a porridge like consistency, usually about 1-2 minutes.
(can also be done in a pressure cooker, cover lock the lid and select high for 2 minutes)
When cooking is done, add cinnamon, and vanilla. Place porridge in a bowl and add milk of choice till desired consistency is achieved.
Top with ½ cup organic berries (fresh or frozen).
*Notes: if you make this in a saucepan and stir it continually for 2 minutes, you can omit the butter and oil.
