5 Ingredient Protein Packed Grain Free Porridge




5 INGREDIENT PROTEIN PACKED GRAIN FREE PORRIDGE

A deliciously uncomplicated grain free, low carb porridge recipe, packed with protein and healthy fats.


Why bother with 5 Ingredient Protein Packed Grain Free Porridge? Because it will be a hell of a lot more filling than a bowl of oats. It will also likely spike your blood glucose a lot less.

Only 5 Key Ingredients:

- 2-3 Eggs (& a scoop of naturally sweetened protein powder if you like)

- 1Tbsp Almond Meal/Almond Flour/Ground Almonds - 1Tbsp Ground Linseed/Flaxseed/Chia Seeds - 1Tbsp Desiccated Coconut - 1 Cup Cream or 2 Cups of Water/Milk

Method

- Combine all the ingredients in a bowl - Pop into the microwave for 2 minutes (or combine in a pan on the hob) - Check and stir after 90 seconds

– it will continue to thicken once removed from the microwave

- Top with your favourite ingredients – frozen berries, pumpkin seeds, cinnamon (shown above)


Smart Porridge Toppings

- Want to up the protein even more? Add a dollop of Greek Yoghurt or some Cottage Cheese.

- Cinnamon is an incredible spice and reduces your blood sugar response to the food you eat

- Low sugar fruit like berries (raspberries are my favourite) or passionfruit

- Nuts and seeds

- Banana if you want something sweet, but ideally in small amounts


I honestly recommend everyone switch from a sweet/mushy breakfast to something more substantial like eggs, bacon and veggies...but if you love the idea of your porridge, you can give this recipe a go.


It won't give you the satisfying dopamine hit that carbohydrates do and the texture is different - there is plenty more protein and also fat, which means you'll likely not need much of it. But if you want to stay fuller, for longer, without spiking your blood glucose, this is worth a go.
