Morning-Burst-Porridge11

I really love it when my mom comes to visit.  One of the many reasons is that I get to make all sorts of new breakfast recipes for her!  I even had her name this recipe.  She said that the dehydrated buckwheat reminded her of Pop Rocks Candy and added a great crunch to this porridge. :)  Along with the crunch of the coconut flakes, she said there was an amazing burst of flavor in her mouth.  This recipe makes quite a hearty and filling serving.  If you can’t eat it all, that’s ok, just place the leftovers in the fridge and enjoy it as a snack later in the day.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond nut milk or water
  • 1/3 cup raw rolled oats
  • 1 Tbsp carob powder
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp walnuts, chopped
  • 1 ripe banana, chopped
  • dash of sea salt
  • Topping; craisins, buckwheat (soaked and dehydrated) and shredded coconut – All optional

Preparation:

  1. Mix the dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.
  2. Add in the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  3. Place in the fridge for at least 1 hour or even overnight.
  4. Garnish and enjoy!

Tips:

  • If you have nut allergies, just feel free to omit the walnuts.
  • Please make sure that your banana is nice and ripe, it will lend more sweetness and it will be easier on your digestive system.
  • I used raw carob powder because I am finding myself to be a bit sensitive to cacao.  If you use cacao instead be prepared to add in some sweetener such as agave or honey.  Raw cacao is very bitter.

    This looks yummy! I will try it soon. I’ve really been enjoying making porridge in the cold weather. It’s so comforting. Your recipes have been great inspiration. This morning I mixed oats and chia and soaked them in warm water for a few minutes. Then I warmed the porridge in the dehydrator for an hour or so. I mixed in honey, agave, cinnamon, nutmeg and almonds. It was so tasty!

    Here’s another version I tried recently:
    buckwheat, chia, ground flax, and hemp seeds with coconut milk, cinnamon and fresh nutmeg. Topped with bananas, pecans, coconut nectar, and some more cinnamon and nutmeg.

    Hi:)) do i have to soak oats?? This is a little complicated for me.

      Good morning Kalkunia,

      You don’t have too but I recommend it. Soaking the oats will not only soften them but it will help to release the phytic acid which makes oats more difficult to digest. You have to make that decision for yourself. :) Have a great day, amie sue
