In the mornings who has time to be messing around making breakfast?
Time is precious, which is why this porridge is perfect for busy people.
This recipe has only natural sugar, when I used to eat a bowl of cereal in the morning, I was hungry in a couple of hours. This was because of the refined sugar and simple carbohydrates being broken down quickly into glucose in my body. But oats contain complex carbohydrates which take your body longer to break down- leaving you fuller for longer.
5 tbsp oats *you can use any type, I like to use jumbo oats
1 tbsp quinoa flakes (optional)
half a mug of unsweetened almond milk (or milk of your choice)
Fresh fruit of your choice
(I tend to use banana, apple, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries)
1 tbsp peanut butter
1tbsp chia seeds
2 tsp flaxseeds
Dries fruit/ nuts of your choice
(I like to use coconut flakes, pistachios, pecans, cashews, raisins)
-Throw the oats, milk and quinoa flakes into a bowl suitable for the microwave, I use a glass pyrex jug, and put into the microwave for 2 mins. Remove and stir.
-If the porridge is too wet/ dry just add more oats/ milk accordingly.
-Top with peanut butter, chia seeds, flaxseed and fruit.
Its as easy as that!
