Creamy Mandarin and Pumpkin Seed Winter Porridge With Almond Milk
Start your day right with a belly warming bowl of warm winter porridge with almond milk to warm you from the inside out. Top with fresh mandarin segments and a mix of toasted almonds, pumpkin seeds and goji berries topped with a drizzle of maple-almond butter and you will have one happy tummy that will stay full the whole way through to lunch.
Place the almonds, pumpkin seeds and pepitas in a frying pan over medium heat and toast for about 3 minutes. Make sure to shake the pan regularly until the mixture is lightly toasted. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Add the white chia seeds and goji berries.
In a small saucepan warm the maple syrup, almond butter, coconut oil and ¼ cup of water over low heat and stir until smooth and everything is combined. Move to a small bowl to cool
Give the saucepan a quick rinse and place the instant oats into the saucepan. Add the milk and water and heat over medium heat for about 2-5 minutes (this will depend on the oats), or until the oat mixture thickens.
Divide the oats between bowls. Top with mandarin slices, the nut mixture and a drizzle of the almond butter mix. Serve.
If the oat mixture is too thick add more milk until it reaches your desired consistency.
