I developed this grain free Warming Porridge recipe when I discovered that I was gluten intolerant. It immediately became apparent how restrictive my breakfast meal options would be without cereals and grains on the menu.
One of the things that I missed the most was slow cooked oats on a cold winter morning, and I was sure that there were plenty of other gluten intolerant people in the community who felt the same.
This gluten free breakfast Thermomix recipe for ‘warming porridge’ captures the warmth and satisfaction that you get from a bowl of warm oats, without compromising your health.
Dairy free & gluten free breakfasts don’t need to be a struggle, check out some of my other Thermomix breakfast recipes:
Add nuts to mixer bowl, chop for 5 sec/speed 5/MC on. Set aside.
Add apple and date or sweetener if using and chop for 3 sec/speed 5/MC on. Scrape bowl down.
Add 50 g or 1.8 oz water to apple and cook for 5 min/steaming temp/speed 2/MC on.
Blend for 3 sec/speed 5/MC on.
Add remaining ingredients, (you may also need to add a little water, depending on the kind of brand and milk you use), and cook for 4 min/100°C or 212°F/speed 2/MC on or until desired consistency is reached.
You can add extra milk or water at this stage and blend through if you prefer a runnier porridge.
You can substitute the coconut milk with normal milk, cream, nut milk etc, but may need to reduce the water accordingly.
You can use 90 g or 3.2 oz of any type of nuts or seeds you prefer, experiment with what you've got!
You can omit the apple and step 2 completely, substituting the sweetener with 1-2 tbsp rice malt syrup for a low fructose version.
You can soak your nuts overnight for those who want to.
This porridge will thicken on cooling, you can reconstitute it by stirring through more milk of choice.
