Ingredients

To make the mix:

  • 2 cups of rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup of quinoa
  • 1/3 cup of flaxseeds or flaxseed meal
  • 3/4 cup of pumpkin seeds
  • 3/4 cup of walnuts
  • 3/4 cup of almonds (can be whole or sliced)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • optional: 3 tablespoons of plant based protein powder

To make the porridge:

  • 2/3 cup of milk (I used vanilla almond milk but you can use regular milk, soy milk, or whatever your favorite milk is)
  • 3 ounces of fruit (berries work best), mashed if desired
  • nuts for topping is desired

Instructions

  1. To make the mix, simply combine all of the mix ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until you get a consistency similar to coarse almond meal. You can make the mix thicker or thinner depending on your preferences but I prefer it the consistency of almond meal (see picture above).
  2. Store the mix in an airtight container until you’re ready to use it.
  3. Once ready to make, combine 1 3/4 cup of the mix with 2/3 cup of milk in a small pan. Cook for 4-5 minutes over medium heat, stirring frequently. Take off of heat and stir in mashed fruit if desired.
  4. Top the porridge with more fruit and nuts if desired.
  5. ENJOY!!!
