Recipe of the Week - Breakfast


Warm Chia Porridge

(Serves 2)

This porridge is a bowl of superfood goodness and long lasting energy that will keep you going all morning. I love it because it warms me up and is full of protein, antioxidants and healthy fats to get you glowing from the inside out. Made from pear, chia, golden flaxseed, a little cinnamon, this porridge is naturally sweet, juicy and full of fibre. The porridge thickens up quickly, so I always add extra hot milk before serving.



  • 2 small beurre bosc pears, cut into small chunks with the skin

  • pinch of cinnamon

  • 1 tablespoon cold pressed coconut oil, olive oil or butter

  • 1 1/2 cups of milk (your choice almond, rice, coconut etc) I used coconut milk

  • 1/4 cup white chia seeds

  • 1 teaspoon golden flaxseeds

  • coconut milk or yoghurt to drizzle




  1. Combine chia seeds, flaxseeds and 1 cup of milk into a bowl and mix until combined.

  2. Rest for 5 minutes and mix again.....this is great when you do this the night before you need it....otherwise allow 15 minutes for the chia to absorb the milk to thicken.

  3. Heat coconut oil in a small heavy-based pan.

  4. Add pears and cinnamon and cook over a medium heat for 5 - 10 minutes until golden and softened.

  5. Divide the pan roasted pear between 2 serving bowls.

  6. Heat the chia porridge in a pot over a medium heat and add the rest of the milk. At this stage, you can add other aromatics like Healthy Chef Turmeric Latte and boost with a spoonful of Healthy Chef Protein.

  7. Spoon porridge over the roasted pears. Add extra hot milk or a spoonful of coconut milk or yoghurt.

  8. Garnish with a dusting of cinnamon or even an oven roasted or poached pear. You can also add other seasonal fruits like banana, figs or roasted apple rings. For a little crunch, you can also add roasted almonds or macadamia nuts.
