Love Bites x PRAVAYAMA

The second delicious recipe from Love Bites is right here. (Activated) Superfood Porridge with Salted Caramel Pears, with gluten free and vegan options for a high fibre, protein and antioxidant recipe that is low carb and low GI. It’s the perfect modern yogi Springtime breakfast.

How The Ingredients Benefit Your Body

We like to use a mix of traditional rolled oats and buckwheat groats to achieve our nutty flavoured porridge. By soaking the grains overnight, they become activated, making them both super creamy and much more easily digestible.

Oats and buckwheat are both incredibly nutritious, but buckwheat is actually a grain with a complete protein. Together they provide a low calorie, low GI hit of good fibre, antioxidants and slow release energy. If you are gluten intolerant, try replacing the oats with more buckwheat (which is not actually wheat at all, but a seed related to rhubarb).

For 2-3 Serves

For the porridge:

1/2 cup of rolled oats

1/2 cup of buckwheat groats

2 cups of water

1 cup of almond mylk  (extra to serve if desired)

Pinch of salt

3 tbs yoghurt of choice

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tbs pistachios, lightly toasted and crushed

For the salted caramel pears:

4 pears, peeled and sliced

2 tbs coconut oil

2tbs maple syrup

1/2 tsp salt

Simple Method

Put the oats and buckwheat in a saucepan the night before with the 2 cups of water and leave to soak overnight.

In the morning, add the pinch of salt and the 1 cup of almond mylk to the oats and buckwheat in the water and bring to the boil. Turn down the heat and simmer gently for 10 minutes.

Put the pears, melted coconut oil, maple syrup and salt into a saucepan and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally until nicely caramelised. These will keep in the fridge for 2 weeks (if you can resist them for that long!)

Serve with a spoonful of salted caramel pears, a spoonful of yoghurt, a dusting of cinnamon and a sprinkle of pistachios.
