A new member of our TGF family sent in a recipe for us to share today – something instead of porridge for colder mornings.
Note that Karen is using Linwood seed mixes here which is not a good move for two reasons. First, they are not TGF as they contain cornstarch to stop them sticking together and, second, as soon as you grind nuts or seeds, they start to oxidise. So, it is always best to grind your own fresh nut and seed mixes if you can. I am a realist, of course, and I know there are some mornings that just ain’t gonna happen. In that case, make a small jar that will last up to a week and keep in a sealed jar preferably in the fridge to reduce oxidation. If you do it this way, you have a lovely yummy warming breakfast that, as Karen says, packs a good nutritious punch.
Karen’s Breakfast Winter Warmer! (Serves 1)
2 dsp Linwoods milled seeds with Goji berries (sometimes I use the Brazil nut, Q10 mix for variety) Ed: these contain cornstarch so DO NOT use if TGF. Grind your own mixes of seeds, nuts and fruit you can have).
1 dsp chia seeds
1 tsp maca powder
1 dsp coconut flour (to thicken plus extra fibre!)
Stir all the above together in a saucepan and add 200ml almond milk, leave to soak for 15 minutes or so. (This gives the chia seeds chance to soak and thicken a bit too!)
Gently heat, stirring all the time to desired temperature, it only needs a minute or two.
Top with blueberries and if you like it sweeter, you can always add some maple syrup or even toasted almonds! Ed: I would use honey as better for starch intolerants.
