"BANANA BREAD" COCO-NOATS PORRIDGE

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 with a fork
  • 1/4 tsp ground 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 stir-in 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 air-tight container for 3 to 4 days in the fridge.  Enjoy cold or reheat before serving.
