If you suffer from coeliac disease or are intolerant to gluten, quinoa flakes are a common substitute for oats. They create a light porridge texture but note, they do have a slight bitter aftertaste .
An option for non-oat porridge is available in our breakfast list.
You can select 'Peanut Butter Quinoa Flake Porridge' - or any breakfast rotation you wish - by going to 'Your Profile' and selecting the Breakfast tab. You are then able to view the list of recipe options within 'Would You Like To Select your Own Breakfasts?'.
You can use the base ingredients of quinoa flakes, milk (dairy or non-dairy), honey or maple syrup and water to make the porridge with any flavour changes you like. For example you can use different nut butters, fruit and spices.
