Quinoa Flake and Chia Seed Porridge



Breakfast is definitely my favourite meal of the day-I would probably eat it for every meal if I could! I am one of those people who go to bed slightly excited at the thought of what I might eat for breakfast the next morning…is that sad??? Anyway, I have a particular soft spot for porridge and bircher muesli, and am always up for trying out different combos. Any recommendations for the best porridge/bircher you have had?



  • 1/4 cup quinoa flakes
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 small apple, grated, for topping
  • Buckwheat grouts, for topping
  • Pumpkin seeds, for topping
  • Sunflower seeds, for topping
  • Natural yogurt, for topping
  • Cinnamon, for topping


Combine the quinoa flakes, chia seeds and water in a small pot over low heat. Stir continuously until the water has been soaked up. Add in milk and vanilla and continue to stir until desired consistency is reached.

Pour into a bowl and top with grated apple, a handful of seeds, a good dollop of yogurt and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Enjoy!
