Power porridge

This is one of my favorite breakfasts if I have a big training day ahead of me. It’s porridge, made with quinoa and oats, topped up with goji berries, cacao nibs, blend of berries and a banana. It’s easy to make. I usually prepare it the day before if I haven’t got too much time in the morning.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of organic quinoa
  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup goji berries
  • 1 small banana
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • Your choice of a handful of berries
  • 1 Tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 Tbsp almond nut butter

Prep Time: ~10-15 minutes

Preparation: Rinse quinoa and cook with a 1:2 ratio of quinoa and water. Do the same with the rolled oats.

Once the quinoa and oats are cooked mix them together and add 1 cup of coconut milk. Cook for another few minutes on low heat and add the coconut oil and almond nut butter.

Once cooked put the porridge into a serving bowl and leave a hole in the middle where you add the goji berries and cacao nibs. Add your berries and cut the banana into small pieces and add on top. Sprinkle the porridge with the hemp seeds. Enjoy 🙂
Tip: To get more nutrients out of your quinoa soak over night and don’t cook.
