IMG_1297_edited.jpg

Serves 1

 

Ingredients:

1/4 cup uncooked quinoa 

1 tsp coconut oil 

1 tbsp almond butter

1 tbsp raw honey, or pure maple syrup 

1/4 tsp fine Himalayan pink salt

1 cup coconut, almond milk or other milk of choice (Hemp milk is great for a little magnesium boost!) 

1 tbsp chia Seeds 

Method: 

1. Pre cook quinoa (I do this the night before), using 1 parts quinoa to 2 parts water. Bring to the boil, turn off the heat and cover with the lid for 20 mins or until quinoa is cooked and fluffy.

2. (If you made the quinoa the night before) heat it up on the stove with the 1 cup of coconut milk or almond milk. While it's heating up, heat a separate sauce pan with the coconut oil, when it is melted take it off the heat and add in the almond butter, honey and salt, mix this well until you have a thick sauce. 

3. Drizzle the salted almond butter mix through the quinoa mix, when mixed add through the chia Seeds,  mixing well again. 

4. Serve, topped with extra almond butter, cacao nibs or broken up healthy chocolate, ie made with raw love, loving earth, pana etc. 

 

NOTE: for a slightly richer/creamier porridge I cook the quinoa in almond milk rather than water, just keep in mind you will need a little more milk than you would water.
