To say I love porridge would be an understatement. I’m addicted to it. And after years of buying a pre-made porridge topping, I’ve finally got around to making my own.

It actually took way less time than I thought. And it saved me money!

Also, if you buy the seeds from a refill store you can prevent the plastic wastage that typically comes from buying pre-made packs. Win-win!

I’m focusing on increasing my B-Vitamin intake right now because I’m struggling with low energy levels while recovering from pneumonia. So these seeds have been giving me a little nutrient boost.

By the way, the only gluten-free porridge oats that my digestive system actually gets on with are the Delicious Alchemy ones. I have them every day and they’ve never set off my intolerance symptoms. They keep this porridge addict very happy.

And as I’m a total chocoholic, I always stir Nutristrength roasted cocoa pea protein powder into my porridge so it tastes super chocolatey. Then I scoop this porridge topping on and devour it all within what feels like 5 seconds.

Easy Porridge Topping Recipe

Makes enough for 45 servings of 10g (which is the number of porridge bowls I wish I could eat per day)

Ingredients

  • 115g flaxseeds (or linseeds)
  • 85g sunflower seeds
  • 85g pumpkin seeds
  • 85g chia seeds
  • 35g sesame seeds
  • 45g goji berries (optional as they tend to be quite expensive)

Method 

If you have a Nutribullet…

  1. Place the flaxseeds and chia seeds in the Nutribullet and whizz it all up using a milling blade until the seeds are broken up to your liking – I prefer everything to be super small, but it’s up to you
  2. Empty the Nutribullet contents into a large bowl, then repeat the process with the sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds
  3. Then repeat with the sesame seeds and goji berries – the only reason I break the ingredients into sections is to be kind to my Nutribullet
  4. Then mix it all together in the bowl and pour into a jar with an airtight lid, ready to enjoy any time you fancy

If you have a food processor…

  1. Place all of the ingredients in the food processor and whizz it up to your liking
  2. Then pour into a jar with an airtight lid, ready to enjoy any time you fancy

If you don’t have anything to break the seeds up with, you could always just fill a nice big jar with the seeds and use it like that as a porridge topping

Either way, you’ll be getting plenty of goodness from it.

Enjoy!
