A DIY Porridge mix for those cold mornings where all you want is a warm cozy bowl of goodness. It is made using steel cut oats, flaxseeds and walnuts; blended together with some cinnamon to form a fine powder/meal you can store in a jar until you’re ready to use it. Steel cut oats usually take up to 30 minutes to cook, blending them up reduces that time to a third which means less time watching your breakfast boil and more time enjoying it. To cook it all you need is a serving of your porridge mix, water, milk and a little sweetener. It will thicken as it cools down – I like adding some more milk (oat milk always) once it’s in a bowl and topping it with fresh fruit. It’s moreish, cozy and the perfect start to your morning.
