Cinnamon Grain Free Comforting Porridge

Cinnamon Grain Free Comforting Porridge

This is a warm comforting alternative to grain-containing cereal and it’s similar in consistency to oatmeal, but it is high in protein, fiber and fat. 

It is a low glycemic cereal that helps you keep your blood sugar from spiking. 

I eat this several times per week for breakfast and I switch the fruit, according to the season. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

 

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp. walnuts or other nuts

¼  green apple chopped and  ¼ cup blueberries 

2-3 Tbsp. hemp hearts

2-4 Tbsp. cooked quinoa (I make one cup of quinoa and use it as a side dish also)

1 Tbsp. ground flaxseeds (grind these from whole flaxseeds in small amounts and keep in the refrigerator for daily use on porridge or salads)

1 scoop collagen powder (I recommend grass-fed)

2 Tbsp. coconut manna or almond butter

½ cup coconut milk or hot water

½ tsp. Cinnamon


Preparation: 

  1. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl
  2. Add liquid and enjoy!

I’m developing some new recipes to share with you. Here’s one you can use for breakfast or a snack, for those of you who can’t eat oats. For those who can, just replace the quinoa with gluten free oats. This is a low sugar recipe; feel free to add more honey to your taste. This was perfect for me as a mid-afternoon or after dinner snack that packs a lot of fiber, protein and fat. You can have one of these after dinner to help your digestion or take them along with you for a post-workout “pick-me-up." 

Let me know what you think. Enjoy!”
