spelt porridge with blueberries and almond butter


Because I just know that everybody is going to wake up and want porridge for breakfast this weekend. If you don't, you would if you knew about this porridge. It is kind of like peanut butter and jelly - but way better.


Easy, healthy, yummy. Try it with a splash of coconut milk.


spelt porridge with blueberries and almond butter


3/4 cup spelt flakes*
2 1/2 cups water
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup shelled hemp seed
1 Tbsp honey
1 cup fresh blueberries
almond butter


Combine the spelt flakes, water, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes, or until most (but not all) of the water has been absorbed - you want the mixture to be a bit creamy like oatmeal. Stir in the honey and hemp seed. Divide between two bowls, drizzle a healthy tablespoon or two (depending on your taste) over each bowlful and top each bowl with 1/2 cup of fresh blueberries.


*you could just about any other type of flakes for this - oats, quinoa, barley - whatever you like or have on hand.


And have a wonderful weekend :)
