Nutty Porridge

Not only is this a Nutty Porridge, but its a Nutty Nutritious Porridge. Also checkout my recipe for a Nutty Porridge Bread.


I can't claim the credit for this idea. I do this type of mix for my overnight oats/bircher muesli type breakfast, but saw the Dr Rupi of the Doctors Kitchen throw this together on Instagram and gave it a try. NB - I've made a few changes and also worked out the nutrient profile as some of my clients find this useful.



140g Oats

15g Millet Flakes

15g Quinoa Flakes

30g Hemp Seeds

60g Flaxseed

60g Pecan Nuts

60g Walnuts

60g Pumpkin Seeds

60g Sunflower Seeds


I added the millet, quinoa and hemp because I had it in the cupboard and to add extra nutrients but the original recipe was 200g oats so feel free to just use oats.




Method


Mill the flaxseed (or buy the milled variety).

Blitz the pecans and walnuts with pumpkin and sunflower seeds.

Add in the Oats, Millet, Quinoa and Hemp.

Store in an airtight container.


When ready to cook, dry toast 80g in saucepan before adding milk, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp cacao powder (if desired). Use as much milk as to make the consistency you like. Top with natural yogurt and berries.


PS - 80g makes quite a substantial portion.
