Almonds? That's not how you make porridge! Hands up, who said that with their best Scottish accent? Alas, it is true, this is not how you make porridge, and I'm hoping my Scottish ancestors will forgive my indiscretion.
Despite this recipe containing no oats, it cleverly cooks up to a thick and satisfying porridge-like consistency. You will quickly see why I have named it so.
My Almond "Porridge" recipe is free from gluten, sugar, and dairy and vegan-friendly. It's quick to make and is deliciously filling and satisfying.
I've already bookmarked this dish as one of my favourite breakfasts as it utilises only a few ingredients and has a cooking time of only two minutes!

This recipe calls for inulin powder, a soluble fibre derived from plant-based sources. It is prebiotic, making it a fantastic ingredient for our gut health, and it's also a healthy alternative to sugar. You can read more information about inulin powder --> here.

- 60 g (2 oz) almond flour or almond meal (ground almonds)
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 180 ml (6 FL oz) coconut milk or non-dairy milk of your choosing + extra for serving
- 2 tsp Pure as Inulin Powder
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- Diced fruit
- Chia berry jam
- Sugar-free stewed fruit or berry compote
- Add all the ingredients to a saucepan and stir to combine. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook for 2 minutes. The mixture will be thick and bubbly. Feel free to add a bit of coconut milk if you like your porridge looser and wetter.
- Spoon the porridge into a bowl and top with your desired topping, an extra sprinkle of cinnamon, inulin and chia seeds and a little slosh of coconut milk
