  • Author: Meghan Telpner
  • Total Time: 17 mins
  • Yield: 1 1x


  • Whole Grain Porridge
  • 1/4 cup grains (can use millet, quinoa, oats, amaranth, brown rice, buckwheat or mix of favourites)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup milk substitute of choice or water
  • 2 Tbs ground flax
  • 2 Tbs dried goji berries
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup choice of fruit (if using frozen fruit, cook it with porridge)- blueberries, strawberries, banana, apple, peach, etc.
  • 1 Tbs coconut syrup,maple syrup or honey(optional) or sprinkle of stevia


  1. Soak grain overnight for increased digestibility (though not necessary).
  2. Rinse grain under water until water runs clear.
  3. Place grain, dried and/or frozen fruit, coconut oil and cinnamon in pot with water.
  4. Bring to boil and then reduce to simmer.
  5. Cooking time will depend on grains. Cook until grains are tender but there is still water in the pot. Stir in additional water or milk substitute until desired consistency is achieved (keep in mind that flax will absorb liquid)
  6. Transfer to bowl and stir in ground flax and fresh fruit.
  7. Drizzle with honey/maple syrup if desired.
