Super summery.


This is the ultimate recipe for vegan, gluten free, super delicious porridge. Takes 15 minutes to make and top, and it's super good for your lazy Sunday mornings.


A great way to kickstart your day: rich in protein, healthy fats and carbs you need to wake up your brain and be yourself at your best. Best paired to coconut jogurt, plain dairy or soy yogurt, plant based or dairy milk and some fresh fruit (I love berries) and a drizzle of agave or honey. You can have crunchy clusters as part of your afternoon snack. MY GRANDMA LOVES THIS, you will too! Lots of love, Jessica. xoxo
