Hemp Seed Protein Porridge

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup (30g) ground hemp seeds
  • 1 large organic egg whisked
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla powder or pure vanilla extract
  • 2 heaped tbsp (20g) whey protein concentrate
  • Hemp seeds, cacao nibs, strawberries, goji berries, coconut flakes, cashew butter for topping

...

  • 2 tbsp (15g) ground flaxseed
  • 1 cup (250ml) unsweetened almond milk
  • 10 drops liquid stevia or 1 tbsp organic honey
  • 2 tbsp ground nuts or whole hemp seeds to stir through for texture

This high protein porridge is low carb, fruit free and super thick and creamy!

The hemp seeds provide a plenty of protein just on their own, further bolstered by an egg and a small scoop of whey protein concentrate. Plus you can add your own twist on this breakfast bowl, by picking the toppings that work for you; seeds, cacao, berries, coconut, nut butters – go crazy!

Instructions

  1. Grind hemp seeds to a coarse meal in a high speed blender. If you don’t have a high speed blender you can use whole hemp seeds. The texutre will be just a little looser but it still works well!
  2. Add all ingredients with the exception of the egg and whole seeds or ground nuts to a pot, gently bring to boiling point and simmer for about 5 minutes to thicken
  3. Add whisked egg and stir over a low heat to cook through for 3 minutes. Keep stirring so the egg doesn’t scramble on you!
  4. Finally stir through your ground nuts of whole hemp seeds. I used more hemp seeds but coarsely ground cashews or almonds work well too
  5. Sweeten to your own taste; I like the earthiness of the hemp seeds themselves
  6. Serve immediately topped with toppings of choice!
