Lowish carb porridge
« on: 26 March 2013, 06:32:03 PM »
I've just sampled some porridge i've made and it tastes lovely! I'm not sure where i saw this but its something similar so i made it up as

20g porridge -12g carb
2 spoons of linseed
2 spoons of desiccated coconut
1 spoon of ground almonds
a dash of milk/water/cream (whatever you like, you can use unsweetened soya milk for lower carbs)

i only had a spoon of it as i only wanted to try it as i'm having it for breakfast but it was much nicer than plain porridge. You can add more porridge/more linseeds/everything else if you want, its just means lower carb and lower GI if adding the other things than plain porridge alone.

I'm a big porridge fan - I'll have to try this, will have to buy some linseed and coconut first though!

 ;D sounds lovely! I got some ground linseed with pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and goja berries from Aldi. I just add a dessertspoonful to my porridge after I have made it. My OH just has plain milled linseed added to his but if I have to re-heat it I think the linseed goes 'gloopy' but it's ok just stirred into the hot porridge. I'll have to see if he fancies your version. He has RC factor (resistance to change!)
