"BANANA BREAD" COCO-NOATS PORRIDGE

BANANA NUT COCONUT GRAINFREE PORRIDGE.jpg

I just love this no-oats (noats) grain-free porridge.  Not only is it packed with fibre, protein, healthy fats and pre & probiotics, but it tastes like warm banana cake that you can eat with a spoon!  Now how good is that?!? 

The base version is suitable for vegans, but collagen peptides can be added for an extra protein boost if desired.

Ingredients for one generous serving:

  • 2 Tbsp coconut flour

  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped walnuts (I just pulse-blended walnut halves in the Vitamix)

  • 1 Tbsp ground tiger nuts (prebiotic fibre)

  • 1 cup unsweetened walnut or almond milk

  • 1/2 ripe banana, mashed

  • 1/4 tsp ground Ceylon cinnamon

  • 1 scoop or packet collagen peptides (omit for vegan)

  • 1 Tbsp gluten-free flaxseed meal

  • 1 Tbsp shelled hemp seeds (gluten-free if needed)

  • optional toppings: sliced or caramelized banana, chopped walnuts, toasted coconut chips, raw cacao nibs

Directions:

  1. Put coconut flour, walnuts, tiger nuts and almond milk into a small pot over medium heat and stir to combine.

  2. Bring to a gentle boil, then reduce heat to low and add mashed banana and cinnamon.

  3. Allow porridge to simmer for several minutes to thicken, stirring occasionally.

  4. Remove from heat and stir in collagen (if using), flaxseed meal, and hemp seeds.

Serve immediately with your favourite toppings or store in an airtight container for 3 to 4 days in the fridge.  Enjoy cold or reheat before serving.
