Low carb porridge 

After returning from somewhat sunnier climes, I was hit by the icy temperatures in london and realised that my brekkie of fresh fruit and yoghurt was perhaps not going to work.  I was craving something warm and comforting, porridge to be precise!  Now porridge, as we know, is fairly high on the old carb count and therefore something I tend to either avoid or at least save for a special occasion.  I therefore set about (yet another) low carb alternative experiment.  

Gathering all the low carb nuts, seeds and flours from my cupboards, I went about throwing some things in to a pan and after a few goes, I put the spoon to my mouth and stifled a squeak of excitement.  I had hit the low carb porridge jackpot!!

Now, I didn’t measure anything out for this as I don’t really think that it is necessary so I will list the ingredients that I used and let you have a play around to find a combination that works for you…


INGREDIENTS

Ground almonds

Chopped almonds 

Linseeds

Desiccated coconut

Chia seeds

Cinnamon 

Dash of sugar free caramel syrup 

Water 

Couple of blueberries to sprinkle on top

Yummmmm! Have a go and let me know if anyone has anything else they use to satisfy those warm carb cravings in the morning!!
