Creamy Chai Spiced Chia Porridge Recipe. A dlicious, cosy and satisfying recipe.
So after a beautiful summer it’s finally starting to feel like Autumn in London.
The mornings are getting darker and colder, making hitting the snooze button more and more tempting. But waking up and enjoying this beauty is something to look forward to.
As Autumn rolls in it’s time of course to bring out the festive spices. Cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, allspice, cardamon and of course not forgetting my favourite spice of all…ginger!!
It’s also the time of year when all I really feel like for breakfast is a nice, hot and comforting bowl of porridge. What would make it even more comforting? Spices, of course! The combination used in this porridge recipe is fiery and warming and tastes and smells just like autumn.
Spices are amazing for adding delicious flavour to your food without adding additional calories. They also contain an incredible amount of nutrients, perfect for cold and flu season.
In fact this porridge recipe is a powerhouse of nutrition. With the slow released carbs and the protein hit from the poppy seeds, flax and almond butter, this really will keep you full and satisfied all day.
This porridge recipe is vegan and gluten free. Although you can customise this to your own preference. The beauty of porridge is that you can change a recipe around, take out ingredients you don’t like and add in whatever you fancy.
