IMG_3580 2

Ingredients:

1.5 cups of dry oats

1.5 cups boiling water + half cup whole milk or mylk

1 grated apple

1 tbsp ground seed mix like Linwood milled flaxseed, almond, brazil nut, walnut (you can also add whole almonds, pumpkin seeds etc but these might not be as kid friendly)

4 chopped dates (or spoon of goji berries or raisins)

Pinch of hemp seeds

Cinnamon

Maple syrup or honey

*no honey for under 1s. Additionally, under twos should only have porridge sweetened by the dried fruit, so we aren’t tuning their palate to overly sweet foods

Method:

  1. Simply add boiling water + milk to your oats / nut mix, cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
  2. Serve and enjoy!

Supercharging your porridge will add protein and fat, which will keep your blood sugar more stable, releasing the energy from your food more slowly. This is essential for kids as well, and will help them keep their behaviour patterns in check and their attention focussed for a good part of the morning, when at nursery or school.
