Superfood Porridge


It’s no secret that I love my porridge, my favourite recipes are my Choc Oat Porridge, Quinoa Porridge and Sticky Date Oat Pudding. Lately, I’ve been supercharging my porridge with chia, flax and buckwheat for an extra hit of protein and good fats.


1/3 cup oats
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoons flax seeds
1 tablespoon buckwheat groats
1 cup almond milk


Combine all ingredients in a small pan and stir over medium heat until well combined and cooked through. The mixture will soak up most of the liquid. Serve warm in a bowl with cinnamon, honey, greek yoghurt or fruit.

Tip: I make a big batch of the dry ingredients and store in bulk to save time in the mornings.

PS: Here are some other breakfast ideas to make your mornings easier.

  1. Hi Emily, I have made a variation of your superfoods porridge leaving out the oats as I have hypothyroidism and can not have gluten. Instead I replace oats with psyllium husks and I have added other superfoods for thyroid health: pumpkin and sunflower seeds, walnuts, almonds, pure carob bark nibs, shredded coconut, goji’s and I crush into the mix a gluten free weet- bix which are made from sorghum. I keep a big batch in an air tight container in fridge and just soak in water/ milk the portion I need for brekkie, top with blue berries or a few spoons of home stewed apples( no sugar) just apples and you have a bowl of yumminess waiting to be warmed or eaten as is in the morning. A little grated fresh ginger can add some anti inflammatory zing and digestive help. DELICIOUS. Thanks for helping me reinvent porridge oats! Before being diagnosed with thyroid disease porridge was a favourite staple so this superfood alternative has helped me get over the porridge absence in my diet!
