High Protein Warming Quinoa Porridge

Content by: 180 Nutrition

180 Nutrition: This high protein breakfast  porridge makes a great start to the day now that the colder months have set in.  Prepared in under 10 minutes, the added Superfood Protein Blend offers healthy fats and plant-based fibre which will keep you feeling fuller for longer and is great for the kids too!

Ingredients (makes 2 serves)

  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 2 cups of organic quinoa flakes
  • 1/2 cup of 180 Superfood Protein Blend
  • 1 ripe banana (chopped)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecan nuts
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil (optional)


First up grab a large saucepan.

Two cups of quinoa flakes will need about 4 cups of water so throw these into your saucepan and bring to the boil. Now reduce the heat to simmer and cover for around 12 minutes.

Now add the 180 protein powder and the coconut oil and stir through. Feel free to add a little more water if the mixture looks too dry. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 3 mins.

When all the water has been absorbed, remove from the heat and stir in the chopped banana. Serve in a breakfast bowl, sprinkle with your chopped pecans and dust with cinnamon to finish, & voila!

A delicious high protein breakfast. Enjoy…

Another great recipe, had it this morning and it’s perfect for this cold weather!

Lindsey Grenet says:

Good one- to make it gluten free you could substitute the oats for quinoa flakes and/or rice flakes.

Fleur says:

Looks good! How many people is this recipe of 2 cups oats meant to serve?

180nps says:

Good question! I’d say serves 2 – 4 people depending on how much they eat.

Tim says:

I’d add natural honey (manuka) and some Jalna vanilla yoghurt. Maybe some milk too.

I know it’s not full paleo but for those who have dairy, it’s delicious.

I like Golden Syrup instead of honey (I own 10 acres and do a lot of work, and cycle a lot, so burn these calories off).

Pamela says:

I have started dipping my toe into Paleo eating but one of the things I really missed was morning porridge. Loved the idea of this recipe but interested your thoughts on whether it would undo all the benefits of Paleo? I’m hoping there’s a place for it 🙂

Hi Pamela…. Peronaly I don’t eat many grains, but I will have oats occasionally. The ones I will eat are Groats Oats. They are unprocessed but they take ages to cook, or you have to soak them over night first otherwise you’ll be chewing them like a horse! Hope that helps…Guy

I made this recipe this morning. Really nice and light. I’ve made a different version with coconut milk before, but prefer this one.
