I used to have porridge most mornings, before I was diagnosed with coeliac disease and IBS, and I was really missing the creamy warming comfort of it in the mornings. I came up with this recipe as a quick and healthy, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free alternative, which can double as a dessert!
Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:
You can add an additional boost of antioxidants and veggies by tossing in some shredded zucchini or carrots, and for those who can handle it, toasted sunflower seeds or almonds would add a nice crunch and help increase the amount of protein and polyunsaturated fats in this recipe!
