It seems like there is never enough time to prepare a healthy and nutritious breakfast in the morning. I know I am guilty of eating a granola bar on-the-go or just adding extra creamer to my coffee and calling that breakfast. Those days are gone because this quinoa oat and flaxseed porridge can be made ahead of time and is packed full of protein, fiber, and omega 3’s. No excuses anymore!
Flaxseed meal is high in omega 3 fatty acids and fiber. It also aids in the digestive process and is a natural cholesterol controller. The nutty flavor from the meal adds a wholesome and warming taste to the porridge. The quinoa and steel-cut oats are a great source of protein and complex carbs to give you energy to start the day. With a touch of sweetness on top from the maple syrup and fruit, breakfast is complete!
This recipe can be served immediately or refrigerated and reheated for single servings. I like to make a big batch on Sunday morning and then reheat it all week long. I add different fruit like blueberries, diced apples, or raisins, whatever I have on hand.
