Flavoring and Topping Ideas:
Organic or ghee for buttery flavor or coconut oil
Full fat coconut milk or homemade almond milk, for drizzling
Ground cinnamon or cardamom, to taste
Freshly grated whole nutmeg, to taste
Fresh berries, such as blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and/or strawberries
Sautéed cinnamon apples
Sliced almonds or broken or chopped nuts such as pecans or walnuts
Seeds such as pepitas (pumpkin seeds) or sunflower seeds, for sprinkling
Coconut flakes, for sprinkling
Extra-Creamy Coconut Milk Variation: When homemade almond milk is not available, I like to make this extra-creamy coconut milk variation with canned coconut milk. Simply substitute the 3/4 cup almond milk called for in the recipe with 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk and 1/4 cup filtered or purified (distilled) water. (Oh, so good!) Just cover and refrigerate any leftover coconut milk for making porridge the next morning.
For Thicker Porridge: cook longer
To Freshly Grind Whole Golden Flaxseed: Simply use a clean coffee grinder to achieve finely ground golden flaxseed meal. A coffee grinder dedicated to grinding dried herbs and spices as well as other ingredients is a very helpful tool in the kitchen.
Time Saver: To save time in the kitchen on busy weekday mornings, simply pre-measure the dry ingredients and keep handy, covered in a prep bowl, on the countertop near the cooktop range or make a larger batch for a few days and warm up with a bit of milk to soften in the a.m.
