The Best Breakfast Porridge (Oatmeal) Recipe Ever (Gluten-Free, Vegan)

The Best Breakfast Porridge/Oatmeal Recipe Ever (Gluten-Free, Vegan) | vitalivesfree.com

This breakfast porridge recipe is decadently creamy and sweet, yet filled to the brim with superfoods and amazing nutrients. This oatmeal can truly be called The Superfood Oatmeal as it will make you a superhuman for most of the day. I’m not even kidding! 🙂

Porridge is nearly sacred at our home. Once I found out I was gluten intolerant, we simply started buying gluten-free oats, even if they are at least twice more expensive than regular oats because eliminating oats was out of the question. Porridge is what saved us from post-Paleo constipation and misery. I grew up with it, my body loves it, it keeps me extremely regular, it gives me steady energy all the way until lunch, and it’s delicious! It somehow satisfies that craving for something sweet and if I have one of my decadent porridges in the morning, I don’t crave sweets during the day at all.

Because this breakfast porridge recipe contains local honey and bee pollen, it’s amazing for those of you who suffer from hayfever. If you consume local honey and/or pollen regularly, you will eventually build up resistance to pollen and your allergy should get better or disappear completely. Local honey is like a natural immunotherapy for allergies. Try it!

Ingredients For The Best Breakfast Porridge Ever (makes 2 servings):

  • 1 cup of gluten-free oat flakes (you can also soak them overnight in 2 cups of water, then rinse)
  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup of coconut cream (or coconut milk if you want it slightly lighter – I always use Aroy-D brand because it’s literally just coconut and water, no other additives)
  • 8 medium strawberries
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp dried goji berries
  • 2 tsp raw, local honey
  • 2 tsp local bee pollen
  • 1/3 tsp Himalaya salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder

How To Make The Best Breakfast Porridge Ever:

Just put all of the ingredients in a small pot (except honey and bee pollen) and warm it up on a low fire. It should never reach boiling point. Just gently heat it up, stirring occasionally, until your oatmeal becomes thick and creamy. The chia seeds and goji berries will soak while cooking, but as the fire is so low, they won’t get overly heated and won’t lose their nutrients, such as vitamin C.

Once the porridge is ready, transfer to serving bowls and sprinkle with honey and bee pollen. Enjoy!

We’re literally obsessed with this recipe and have been eating porridge every single morning. It’s just what works best for us.
