I used to eat oats every morning during winter. It used to be my staple breakfast and I would look forward to it every day. Until my gut changed, and now oats are an issue for me (it’s a fodmap). So since the mornings are getting a little frostier, I wanted to create a porridge that would fill me up, comfort my tummy, and not leave me feeling like a blown up balloon, tired and uncomfortable. This is what I made!
Whilst it’s not totally fodmap compliant because of the dried fruit and maybe a little too much almond meal for some, you can adapt to suit your needs:
Swap the dried fruit for whole nuts and seeds, or just serve with some low fodmap fresh fruit like strawberries and blueberries.
Reduce the amount of almond meal by half, swapping 1 cup with quinoa flakes, amaranth, millet, or buckwheat groats.
Have a play and find your own variation. If you make it, I’d love for you to share it with me on Instagram or Facebook! Just tag me @thebodydietetics.
To warm breakfasts on chilly mornings and happy tummies!
ps. Make in bulk, store in the fridge, and just reheat when needed! It should keep well for 4-5 days if it’s in an airtight container in a cold fridge. Enjoy!
