Whole Grain Porridge 5 Delicious Healthy Recipes | vegan and gluten-free

Quick and Creamy Whole Grain Porridge

  • Author: Deryn
  • Yield: 1 1x


This quick whole grain porridge is more of a guideline than a recipe. Choose your whole grain, nuts, seeds, fruits, optional sweetener, optional add-ins, add it all to a saucepan and heat until warm and creamy. If desired, top with berries, sliced banana or a spoonful of almond butter and enjoy.


  • 1/2 cup cooked of either quinoa, amaranth, teff or brown rice
  • 1/4 cup of either sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds or hemp seeds (or a mixture)
  • 1/4 cup of either raw walnuts, almonds, cashews or pecans
  • 2 tbsp of either chopped dates, apple juice-sweetened cranberries or raisins
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup of either almond, coconut, hemp, cashew, oat or rice milk (plus a little more if needed)
  • optional: 1 tbsp sweetener of choice (maple syrup, raw honey or a few drops liquid stevia extract)
  • optional: 1/2 a diced apple
  • optional: 1 tbsp chia seeds or ground flax seeds
  • optional: a pinch of nutmeg, cardamon, ginger, turmeric or cloves


  1. Add all ingredients to a saucepan on the stove. Heat over medium heat, adding a bit of extra milk if needed to reach a porridge consistency. Warm over medium heat until heated through and everything is nice and soft and creamy.


  1. This can easily be double or tripled if needed. You really can’t go wrong and there’s not need to follow the recipe exactly. Use about 1/2 cup of cooked whole grains per person plus any add-ins you desire. Add enough milk to cover, warm it all up in a pot then pour into a bowl and enjoy! This can be made ahead of time and taken to go if needed.
