Gluten Free Porridge

In my household we all have slightly differing needs when it comes to meals. Mr B eats pretty much any vegan food, I'm vegan minus gluten and Small needs low salt & sugar and good healthy fats. What all this translates to is either seperate meals for everybody, or 3 different versions. It's nice when I find something I can make for us all, or just Small & I when Mr B is at work. 
This porridge recipe is exactly that - something Small & I enjoy together.

My favorite gluten free oat product is Bob's Red Mill Oat Bran. It makes me sad that their products are not more readily available in the UK. I've tried out their bread & pancake mixes whilst in the US, but I find the Oat Bran in Waitrose. At time of writing Ocado also sell their flour and a couple of bread mixes, but they're £4.99 a bag which is too much for one loaf!!


80g Oat Bran
400ml Almond Milk (or any other dairy free milk you like)
1 TBSP Raisins
1 TSP Cinnamon 
2 TSP Ground Flaxseed

To Finish off: 1 TSP Brown Rice Syrup for the grown up portion and 1 TSP Smooth Nut Butter for the toddler portion.

For the sake of my sanity I cook this in the microwave. It takes around 5 minutes.
Add all the ingredients apart from the toppings to a large bowl and stir well. Cook & serve. Simple :)
