Recipe for Grain-Free Power Porridge – a great start for the morning


2 Tbsp ground almonds
1 Tbsp ground flax seeds
1 Tbsp pea protein powder (or hemp or whey)
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ ripe banana, mashed
½ cup hot water
½ cup nut milk of your choice

To Serve:
A dash of honey or maple syrup
Extra fresh fruits such as bananas or berries
Handful chopped toasted nuts

Optional extras to add in:
Small handful raisins or dried cranberries
½ grated apple or pear
1 Tbsp nut butter of your choice

How to
Add all of the porridge ingredients to a medium-sized non-stick pot, and cook gently over a low heat for 3- 5 minutes, stirring often.

Transfer to bowl, add desired toppings and enjoy.

Measure out a large jar full of all of the ingredients (in their relevant quantities) so that you can scoop out what you need each morning.

Make-ahead tip: add 1/3 cup of the dry porridge mixture along with the banana and milk and leave in the fridge overnight. In the morning, add in the hot water and enjoy on the go or at your desk.
