Ingredients for Homemade Instant Oat Porridge Mix
Firstly, this recipe incorporates so many nutritious and healthy ingredients. I used organic rolled oats with nuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, roasted coconut flakes and coconut sugar for some sweetness. But, you can play around and add some quinoa, buckwheat, dried fruit and even some protein powder to suit your needs.
How To Make instant Homemade Oat Porridge Mix
Start off with getting all your dry ingredients together. You can toast your nuts and seeds before you start for that extra roasted flavour. But I used raw nuts and seeds in this recipe. I did however quickly roasted my coconut flakes (delicious) or you can use desiccated coconut.
Place ALL the ingredients in your blender and pulse until fine. You can totally leave it a little chunky if you prefer. However, I made my instant oat porridge fine enough to be added to smoothies, shakes and of course a yummy breakfast porridge.

Next microwave for 1 minute, and mix well with a little more milk. Lastly, my favourite, is a spoonful of cinnamon coconut sugar or maple syrup.
