Grain-free Hazelnut, Linseed and Sunflower Seed Porridge

For those that need to stay away from grains, this is a great alternative that’s packed with healthy seeds and is super quick to make.

Serves: 1


¼ cup shredded 
coconut, toasted
2 tablespoons sunflower seeds, toasted
2 tablespoons ground almonds
2 teaspoons chia seeds
1 teaspoon linseeds
2 teaspoons brown sugar
¼ teaspoon mixed spice
¾ cup milk of your choice
¼ cup roasted chopped nuts 
(I used hazelnuts)
To serve
your favourite yoghurt
lemon or lime curd
fresh or thawed 
frozen raspberries 
nuts (I used pistachios)


Place all the ingredients except the milk and hazelnuts in a small food processor and blend until well chopped but not powdered.

Heat the milk in a small saucepan then whisk in the coconut mixture. Bring to the boil, whisking constantly, then reduce the heat to low and cook for 5 minutes. 

To serve: Place in a serving bowl and top with yoghurt then swirl through some lemon or lime curd. Scatter with raspberries and nuts of your choice.
