NOTE: This makes enough Porridge Mix for about 10 servings. Make a batch and you'll be able to eat power porridge all week. Who knows what amazing things you'll achieve after a week of this stuff!
For the Porridge Mix:
Makes about 10 servings
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup raw buckwheat
1/2 cup flax seeds
For the Power Porridge:
1/4 cup porridge mix
1/3 cup milk (low fat or almond, soy, oat whatever milk you like), plus extra for serving
1/3 cup water
1 banana, cut in half (one half for porridge, one sliced for topping)
2 mejool dates, pitted (one for porridge, one chopped for topping)
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Maple syrup, to taste
Chopped toasted natural almonds, for sprinkling
Make the Porridge Mix:
Put the oats, buckwheat and flax seeds in a food processor and blitz until they are a fine powder. Or use a coffee grinder like I do. Store in an airtight container.
Make the Power Porridge:
Put the porridge mix, milk, water, half the banana, one of the dates and cinnamon into a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into a small saucepan and heat over medium-low heat, stirring, until it's smooth, hot and starts to thicken. Pour into a serving bowl and top with sliced banana, chopped date, chopped almonds. Drizzle with maple syrup and milk to taste.
