Keto Low Carb Porridge (low carb, gluten-free)

I was not keen initially to make this as it didn’t appeal. However, I’m glad as it is a wonderful start to the day; truly delicious, soothing and nutritious. I made two versions (see final photos). In the middle photo, the porridge was made in a sauce pan; its topping is raspberry chia seed jam and what the original recipe calls peanut butter fudge (peanut butter mixed with double cream). The final photo shows porridge made in the microwave; it has raspberry chia seed jam swirled through it, fresh raspberries and a drizzle of keto syrup. The microwave method was the better texture. The recipe is from the Sugar Free Londoner site. It serves one.
