coconut flaxseed porridge

If you struggle to tolerate traditional porridge made with rolled oats, then you could try this coconut flaxseed porridge instead.

Much like the texture of instant oats like Readybrek, this coconut flaxseed porridge is warm, thick and filling. So if you want a hot, sweet breakfast in the colder weather, then this will warm you up, ready to start the day.

You will need coconut flour, flaxseed and chia seeds for this recipe. All these items can be bought in most larger supermarkets and can now also be found in many discount stores such as Aldi and Lidl.
