I have been experimenting with different gluten free breakfast alternatives for a while now and was starting to run out of ideas. You can only consume so many smoothies before you start to get bored. I then asked my employer (who happens to be a Naturopathic Doctor) what she eats in the morning and next thing you know I have a hearty, filling yet satisfying “porridge” that is made with wholesome and plant based ingredients.
1/4 cup flax seeds (milled is best, I only had whole on hand)
1/4 cup raw unsweetened coconut shreds
Pinch of cinnamon
1 teaspoon raw local honey
1 ripe organic banana, sliced (or any other fruit you may prefer)
Enough boiling water or hot almond milk to reach the desired consistency.
Combine all of the ingredients except liquids and fruit in a bowl and stir to combine. Start adding the hot liquid of your choice and stir until desired consistency is reached. Garnish with your favorite fresh fruit pieces.
