Richard's Power Porridge

It will take me longer to write this than it will for you to make the porridge, but I will have finished typing before you finish eating.  Karma.

The Gubins

  • 75g Rolled Oats
  • 25g Chia Seeds
  • 25g Linseeds
  • 25g Sunflower Seeds
  • 50g Banana Chips
  • 75g Mixed Dried Fruit
  • 2-3g Ground Cinnamon

Serves 2 daddy bears or 4 baby bears

The Doings

  1. Place everything in a blitzer and hit the switch, stop the machine, give the container a good shake and then blitz again.  You should now have a rough powdery mix.
  2. Decant into a suitable container add hot water, stir, allow to cool and eat; done.

Not the best-looking food in the world, but not many porridges are.

The Extras

  • You can add more fruit to make a paste which can be eaten without extra water.  Good for making your own gels and ‘on the go’ snacks.
  • Swap cinnamon for ginger and cocoa nibs.
  • Add chopped figs or apricots for a sweeter taste.
  • You can add pumpkin seeds, but I find they clash with cinnamon, but everybody’s tastes are different.

The Knowledge

So why the blitzing?  Well, by blitzing the ingredients you are giving your digestive system a head start, the fibre in the oats, seeds and fruit has been split allowing your internal enzymes to get started as soon as the porridge hits your stomach.

The Rough and The Smooth
