cooking time
3 - 4 minutes


  • 1/4 cup quinoa flakes (or rolled oats)
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 free range egg (use 2 eggs if you are super hungry!)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract (or 1 heaped teaspoon pure vanilla powder)
  • 1 teaspoon macca powder (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons macadamia nut butter (or hulled tahini)
  • pinch of salt
  • // to serve //
  • 1 heaped teaspoon almond butter (or nut butter of choice)
  • 1/3 cup mixed seasonal berries of choice
  • 1 teaspoon of maple syrup (optional)
  • splash of warmed almond milk (optional)


In a small saucepan whisk the egg with the milk, water, salt, vanilla and macca if using. Stir in the quinoa flakes and place the saucepan on the stove top on a low - medium heat. Bring to the boil and then turn down to a simmer, stirring often until the porridge is nice and creamy. 

To serve, pour the hot porridge into a bowl and top with seasonal berries, almond butter, splash of warmed milk and a drizzle of maple syrup. I have also added some buckini's here for crunch.
