Many of our customers have stated that fresh fruit & yoghurt is delicious with a portion of Elementary stirred in. Try it & see. Any seasonal fruit will be great.

 

Stir into porridge

Porridge is a staple brekkie, especially in Britain. Stirring 2 heaped teaspoons of Elementary Vital into your oats will take it to another nutrition level, adding Omega 3, Lignans, antioxidants, and many other powerful nutrients. Still add your favourite dried fruit, etc. 

Pimp your porridge!!

Porridge season is here, and Elementary can supercharge your breakfast with antioxidants, Omega 3's, lignans, fibre, vitamin C, protein, iron and other energy boosting and immune boosting good stuff PORRIDGE BASE (4 portions) 160 g rolled oats 600 ml milk, organic soya milk, coconut or regular water sea salt 1. Place the oats and the milk or water in a large pan over a medium heat. 2. Add a tiny pinch of salt and stir with a wooden spoon. 3. Bring to a steady simmer for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring or whisking as often as you can to give you a smooth creamy porridge – if you like your porridge runnier, simply add a splash more milk or water until you’ve got the consistency you like. PIMP IT UP Stir in 2 heaped teaspoons (16g) of Elementary Vital to each bowl, noting that it will further thicken the porridge a bit. Add whatever else you desire - fruit, berries, spices, cocoa - and gallop into your day. Yee Haa!!

Elementary Granola Bars
Makes 18-20

Ingredients:
3 cups rolled oats, lightly toasted
1 cup slivered almonds, lightly toasted
3/4 cup coconut flakes, lightly toasted (or dessicated will do)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, lightly toasted
100g Elementary Vital superfood supplement
2/3 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup honey
1 cup of chopped dried fruit of your choice - cherries, apricots, apple, etc.

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Line the bottom and sides of a 13”x9”x1” baking sheet (aka a quarter sheet pan) with parchment paper, leaving a slight flap of parchment on all sides, hanging over the edge. Lightly grease with coconut oil and set aside.
3. Place first five ingredients into a large mixing bowl and toss together.
4. Pour the maple syrup, coconut oil, and honey into a small saucepan over medium heat and stir together. Simmer for about 5 minutes.
5. Pour contents of saucepan over the oat mixture and stir together until fully incorporated. Fold in dried fruit until well combined.
6. Pour mixture into the prepared baking pan and press down until you have one big rectangular block of granola. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until light- golden brown (you don’t want the top to get too dark because the rest of the sides will be slightly darker).
7. Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes.
8. Lift the granola out of the baking sheet, and allow to completely cool before cutting into bars. Serve and chew!
