The Best Glutenfree Instant Porridge

Breakfast, for me, is the most important meal of the day & with the best glutenfree instant porridge, I look forward to getting up, every morning!

After eating plain porridge for a good few years, I had to come up with something a little bit more satisfying. This recipe is inspired by Jamie Olivers’ Granola Dust, because it turns boring porridge oats into a perfect breakfast bowl.

Topped with your favourite fruits, some seeds & a little maple syrup it’s the base for the perfect start to a fantastic day.


The best glutenfree instant porridge

Prep Time15 mins

Course: Breakfast
Keyword: breakfast, glutenfree, vegan, vegetarian
Servings: 35 servings


  • 1 kg oats
  • 250 g nuts
  • 125 g seeds
  • 250 g dried fruits
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp espresso omit or exchange for caffeine free if children will eat the porridge.
  • 2 tbsp psyllium husk


  • Firstly, pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees.
  • Next, place the oats / flakes, nuts & seeds in a large baking tray. Mix & bake for 15 minutes, stirring half-way through.
  • Last, but not least, take out the baking tray, add the dried fruits, cocoa powder, espresso & psyllium husk, mix well & let it cool for around 15 minutes.
  • Add the mixture to your food processor and blend it until you reach the desired consistency - I like it finely ground, as it cooks faster in the morning. You might want to blend it in smaller portions, depending on the size of your blender. I usually divide it into 3-4 portions.
  • Finally, for breakfast, place 50g of instant porridge (roughly 2 big serving spoons) and 250 ml of milk (I prefer oat or almond milk) into a small pot and heat on medium heat. Once simmering, turn down to low heat until it reaches the desired consistency. If you like it thicker, just use less milk and if you like it thinner, simply add a little more milk. Serve with your favourite toppings, such as fresh berries, hemp seeds, maple syrup.

At this point, you’re probably asking yourself, which kind of oats, nuts, seeds & fruits you should use… 

I usually use, whatever I have left at home. I’ve used combinations with cashews, almonds, hazelnuts, brazil nuts, walnuts and many more. For seeds, I’ve used chia, sesame, hemp, sunflower & pumpkin seeds and I also used many dried fruits ranging from apricots to raisins.

Further, I ,usually, use a variety of oats. Around 250 g each of millet flakes and classic oats. The rest is a mix of buckwheat, rice & quinoa flakes. I like to mix it up, as the other flakes are higher in protein and other nutrients.

As you can see, there’s no right or wrong, just let your creativity flow and choose your favourites!! I’m sure you’ll love the best glutenfree instant porridge recipe – no matter which ingredients you use! 

As always, I hope you have fun trying my recipe.

Glutenfree Guide London by CarrotsKitchen

Well, don’t we all know the pain, searching for a restaurant, coffeeshop, … that meets our dietary restrictions & allergies? The answer: The Glutenfree Guide London by CarrotsKitchen.

Basically, I’ve started making my own list of glutenfree and quality approved eateries. Where else would I start, if not in the city, that stole my heart so many years ago? That’s right: the one & only – London City! So, below I’ve listed the first few places. As I’ll be back and forth (probably my entire life), I’ll go along and add more and more places to this list!

Restaurants / Coffee Shops

Leggero Soho

Leggero is a fully glutenfree Italian restaurant – a very good one at that! They make their own pasta, delicious bread and many other things! Definitely worth a visit next time you’re over in London. They’re also at Mercato Metropolitano in Borough.

Kalifornia Kitchen

California Kitchen is not a glutenfree restaurant, but they have so many glutenfree options, it might as well be one. It’s a fully vegan restaurant and they have the most delicious bowls, amazing breakfast and very delicious coffee, with any kind of vegan milk you can imagine. Just off Tottenham Court Road station, it’s the perfect stop from a busy day shopping along Oxford Street.


While Pret-a-Manger is not at all a glutenfree eatery, they have implemented quite a few delicious glutenfree alternatives, from sandwiches to muesli bars, you can find almost everything important. Another bonus: Pret-a-Manger is really easy to find, everywhere across the city. Therefore, it’s perfect, for those, who just want to grab something on the go, no matter where they are.

Senzala – creperie, bar & cafe – Brixton

It’s been years since I first tried a Galette at Senzala. They’re simply delicious. They offer a wide range from classic from ham, egg & cheese to specials, such as the Senzala (I can recommend this one). Everything I tried there over the years was outstanding. And as they follow the original recipe and use buckwheat flour only, their Galettes are naturally glutenfree.


Vida Bakery Bricklane

The Vida Bakery can be easily overlooked in the busy Bricklane. Especially on Sundays, when the Bricklane Market attracts oh so many tourists. Nevertheless, watch out for it, go inside and take a short break from the market madness; enjoy a coffee and some lovely glutenfree snacks. Everything homemade and a lovely service as well. 


BeyondBread is a glutenfree bakery / coffee shop. Their profits range from many different breads, which are all delicious to the most amazing pastries. Do I have to say another word? No, not really… Tasty glutenfree pastry is a real rarity – so go off for a lovely weekend brunch and eat some pastry at BeyondBread!


On my next visit, I am going to Niche Glutenfree Restaurant and Romeos’ Bakery, so they will be my next addition.

If there are any other places I forgot or you want to see on the Glutenfree Guide London by CarrotsKitchen, just comment below or send me an email here.

I’d be happy to hear if you try any of the above on your next visit. If you do, let me know what you think!

Until then, happy eating,
