Apple and Chia Seed Porridge

This is a great breakfast for those cold winter mornings.

The recipe largely comes from Wallflower Girl.  Thanks to her for a great idea, which I adapted slightly to suit the ingredients I had.  I found I did not need to add any sugar, as the apple and spices gave this dish plenty of flavour.

Also, I did not have any almond butter, so I just used ground almonds instead – it worked a treat!

Ingredients
  1. 120ml (1/2 cup) almond milk
  2. 2 tbsp chia seeds
  3. 2 tbsp ground almonds
  4. 3 dates, roughly chopped
  5. 1/2 tsp mixed spice
  6. 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  7. 1 apple, cored*
  8. Chopped pecans
Instructions
  1. Mix all the ingredients, except the chopped pecans, in a blender until thick and smooth.
  2. Transfer to a saucepan, stir and heat gently until warm.  (The original recipe is from a raw food blog and recommends not heating above 40 degrees C.  I just heat until it’s a pleasant temperature to eat – no need to boil)
  3. Serve with chopped pecan nuts.  Enjoy!

*I’ve also tried it with pear instead of apple -that’s just as good.

  1. So happy you gave this a try and it’s great to know that the ground almonds works too (as I tend to have that on hand more than almond butter!) 🙂

    • Thanks Aimee. I did try another chia seed porridge recipe a few months ago and didn’t like it. Yours has great flavours and a good texture. I had it this morning in fact.
