GF GIVEAWAY: Saturday Spotlight - Brookfarm

Gluten Free Porridge with Cinnamon and Raisins

 Be sure to read to the bottom for the GIVEAWAY!

For me, cold and wintery weather means that oatmeal or hot cereal is commonly on the menu for breakfast. It warms you up from the inside and gives you the energy needed to go about your day. 
Gluten Free Porrij

Brookfarm have come up with a new GF porrij that I have been loving on these winter mornings! 

The Gluten Free Porrij is high in protein and full of flavour, and is a delicious mix of brown rice, millet, quinoa, amaranth, almonds, flaxseeds, macadamias and cinnamon.

It has no added sugar, preservatives or additives and is low in sodium and cholesterol free. Each serve has around 6g of protein and that's only increased by what you cook it with and add to it!

Brookfarm recommend cooking their porrij in the microwave, however I found cooking on the stove made it even more delicious and creamy, just as you see on the picture above! 

I love topping it with raisins or dates and a dollop of peanut or almond butter - and don't forget boatloads of cinnamon! Another way I like to make it is by adding in a mashed banana whilst cooking and then topping it with nuts or a dollop of nut butter (don't you remember, I'm a nut butter addict).

Gluten Free Brookfarm Products

Brookfarm also make way more gluten free products than their Gluten Free Porrij, including GF Muesli, Walkabout Mixes (trail mixes) and gluten free bars!

While you can buy them from stockists worldwide and their online store, I wanted to give you a chance to try them for free!

  5. Haha I'm a Sydney girl turned South Aussie (a whole 3 months now!) and my very 'healthy' breakfast year round on the way to work is a bottle of Dare Double Espresso! Do you know how hard it is to buy down here though?! Guess it will push me to give it up eventually ;)

    Ps - those walkabout mixes are actually really good.

  6. Home made bircher muesli made with a mixture of oats, nits, seeds and dried fruit, soaked overnight in half apple juice, half waer. Served with plain yogurt and some chia seeds and if I'm feeling indulgent, a sprinkling of cacau nibs....


  7. I love to make a fluffy egg white omelette to treat myself on the weekends. Fresh avocado, ricotta and grilled mushrooms cooked in whipped egg whites - what more could you want!

  8. mmm i love to cook up a nice warm continental style breakfast of bacon, eggs and a nice fruity muesli mix! Oh and the pancakes for my partner...she loves them! :)

  9. Raisin Toast, with butter and cinnamon and a hot coffee..
    Oats, with sultanas and cinnamon, with a Green Tea...
    So good!

  10. I love porridge with loads of brown sugar, now that I'm coeliac I haven't been able to get my hit, haven't seen this porrij yet must try it!!! jlg009@student.usc.edu.au

  11. I eat slightly odd breakfasts all year round usually, but I do love a muesli bar in the morning if I have some in the cupboard. It can be really hard to find a gluten free one that I like though! :)

  18. Rice porridge made with milk, add sultanas and dark brown sugar. Can't forget the cup of earl grey tea also!

  19. Hey kristy!

    my all time favorite brekky has to be a papaya smoothy, i make it with rice milk, half a papaya and a dash of vanilla extract :)


    i just wanted to say i got married at 19 to my lovely husband who was 21 at the time, 5 years later we are happy, healthy and have a 18 month old son.
    dont believe people when they say you are to young to get married!
    some people wait there whole lives to find "the one" if you are lucky enough to find that person when you are young why wait ;)

  20. Slowcooked Molasses Baked Beans with ham hock, onions, tomato and a poached egg on top.

  21. I love poached eggs on gluten free toast and a large cup of coffee. Simple yet filling.

  22. I once tried a spicy Asian-style rice soup with boiled eggs. That was the best winter warmer I've ever had.
