Apple & cinnamon - raw flax porridge

Raw Flax Porridge

This will be my last word on raw flax porridge options for a while....unless I discover a particularly delicious flavour combo.  

Apple and cinnamon without doubt is a wonderful pairing and unsurprisingly it works well in this dish.  It's probably my go to option as I always have the ingredients to hand.

I have talked here about the benefits of flax - as far as I am concerned forget about all those trendy (and expensive) rainforest 'superfoods', the humble flax is where it is at.  We would all do well to eat more of it.

Ingredients for one
1 apple
Cinnamon to taste
Vanilla to taste
2 tablespoons of ground or milled flax
150ml any milk (I use almond) 

Blend the nut milk with the apple and spices in your blender.  If you don't have a blender then you need to grate your apple into the milk.  Sprinkle over the flaxseeds and leave to soak for 30 minutes or overnight.  Top with some extra pumpkin seeds and walnuts if you have them for added goodness.  Enjoy!

Note: if you do not have almond milk to hand then you can quickly make any nut milk if you have one of the many high powered blenders now on the market.  Use 15g nuts to 150ml water.  Blend until it is smooth and creamy.  Brazil, almond, cashew, hazelnuts all work well.
