Superfood Porridge with Berry Jam

HEYO.

Today I’m feeling good! I could conquer just about anything the universe has to throw at me right now. I’ve got tons of energy and I’m feeling on point.

Obviously it’s because I had Superfood Porridge for breakfast.

Seriously though… SO much good stuff in here! If you want to feel like you can do anything AND eat something delicious then eat this for breakfast. It’s actually a magic potion for energy and feeling awesome.

I’ve never been big on the whole eating porridge for breakfast thing but I dig this recipe. It’s naturally sweetened with banana and easy homemade jam. And its so so simple to make! Easy as pie! (Superfood Porridge pie!)

This recipe feeds about 2 people so when I’m making it for just myself I cut the recipe in half and use the other half of the banana to slice on top of my porridge. :)


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 banana
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds

Toppings:

  • Easy Homemade Berry Jam (see recipe below)
  • sliced bananas
  • hemp seed hearts
  • fresh fruit

Here’s what you do:

  1. Start by making porridge like normal. Put the oats and the water in a pot over medium heat.

  2. As the oats start cooking, in a separate bowl, mash up the banana with the coconut milk, cinnamon and maple syrup. Then add the banana mixture to the oats.

  3. Add the chia seeds just as the porridge is thickening up and at your desired consistency. Then turn off the element and let the chia seeds in the porridge for about 2 minutes to allow them to soften.

  4. Add desired toppings.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups of fresh or frozen berries
  • 1/8 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice

I used a combo of blackberries and raspberries. If you use frozen berries, make sure they’re are thawed and first and then drain out the excess liquid. You’ll also want to use much less coconut milk... just about a tbsp or as needed to create the consistency you want.

Directions:

Throw everything in the blender. On a low setting just give it a few “pulses” so that the jam still has texture. Thats it!
