This quick and easy rice flake porridge recipe is a great gluten-free alternative to oats if you've been looking for something different. These coconut rice flakes are sumptuously creamy, sweet and delicious and even though they are a healthy vegan breakfast recipe, they taste more like a sweet and delicate coconutty treat. Rice flakes are much easier to digest than oats so they really are a great lighter alternative to porridge oat flakes. You should be able to find them in a gluten-free aisle in any bigger supermarket. Serve this creamy coconutty porridge with some homemade raspberry chia jam and plain yoghurt - coconut and raspberries are my favourite flavour combination. This recipe is healthy, refined sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and oil-free.
This is my favourite winter breakfast at the moment. I think I already mentioned how much I love rice flakes? It's such a great porridge alternative and they're very popular in my home country. They're kind of like the Polish version of Thai sticky rice. We have them for breakfast in Poland but they are actually perfect for desserts too. I'll give you a great hack for the creamiest rice flakes you can imagine: just add 2 tablespoons of creamed coconut (yes the same stuff you would put in your Thai food).
This is literally the simplest breakfast to make. You just have to throw in everything together and cook it on low flame. This creamy coconut heaven will taste absolutely insane with raspberry chia jam. I don't know, there's just something really special about this combination. It's like a healthy dessert for breakfast. I always add a mashed banana to my porridge, it's such a great natural sweetener. So I think you should be sweet enough but if you want more you can add a bit of agave nectar or stevia.
Wow, I get to it this kind of delights for breakfast every day and I have to keep pinching myself. After decades of this low carb nonsense and ed drama, I still catch myself feeling guilty sometimes when I actually enjoy my breakfast. But then I realize hey there's nothing to feel bad about. Yes, it tastes delicious but this stuff is actually full of healthy carbs and has simple clean ingredients. It's actually good for you and it tastes amazing. Life is not too bad 😀
