This is a sponsored post for Potter’s Porridge (Gluten-free, sugar free, preservative free). After trying this delicious porridge, I reached out to them asking if I could promote their product and host a giveaway. All opinions about the product are my own. Recipe included with option using your own ingredients if you can’t find Potter’s Porridge in your area.
I recently discovered this fabulous, gluten-free porridge called Potter’s Porridge from The Bread Brothers. Thanks to a good neighbor who was giving Potter’s Porridge for her neighbor gifts at Christmas (thank you, Cindy!), Potter’s Porridge is a regular in our house. Gluten-free, high in protein, fiber, and iron- those things are all excellent of course and it’s absolutely delicious. But the best thing about Potter’s Porridge is…
For every single porridge purchase that you make, The Bread Brothers donates the equivalent amount to a local food bank. How awesome is that?! The Bread Brothers’ “buy one give one” mantra makes it easy to buy and feel good about the purchase, over and above the fact that the porridge is so good for you.
First, read this little excerpt from Ben and Bert about how The Bread Brothers got started and what their mission really is-
As is the case with many men when they reach a certain age and find themselves contemplating the meaning of life, Ben and Bert both experienced mid-life crises. “I really wanted to work on more meaningful projects,” Bert said. “I was working for big corporate America and felt like I was stuck in a velvet-lined rut. I was comfortable, but going nowhere, working for the man, not feeling like I was making much difference in the world. I wanted more.”
So, when you buy a Bread Brother’s product, you’re not only feeding your family healthy food, you’re also helping to provide healthy food to people in your own community. Look for the Buy One, Give One symbol on all our products. It’s a powerful idea with powerful ramifications.
About the porridge-
Made with whole seeds and gluten free grains, no sugar, no preservatives, Potter’s Porridge is super filling as well as delicious. Each package contains 6 servings but I’m able to get even more out of it when I make the porridge in my Instant Pot. The Bread Brothers give instructions for making it in a rice cooker or on the stove, which takes about 35 minutes. For 4 servings made in your Instant Pot or other stove top pressure cooker, do the following-
Place 2/3 cup porridge with 2 cups water in the pressure cooker (I first place 1 teaspoon coconut oil in the pot to prevent any sticking, but if you skip this step, it’s still easy to spoon out of the pot). Cook on High for 15 minutes and then do a quick release. This method makes 4 servings of about 1/2 cup each. Then I top it with fruit, milk of choice and a drizzle of honey.

Porridge in the Instant Pot
For the porridge or oatmeal:
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- ⅔ cup porridge, or steel cut oats
- 2 cups water
Finish with toppings of choice:
- fresh raspberries, strawberries, or blueberries
- honey, agave, or brown sugar, to taste
- chopped nuts
- milk of choice
- Place 1 teaspoon coconut oil or butter into Instant Pot or other stovetop pressure cooker. Add ⅔ cup porridge (or steel cut oats). Add 2 cups water and give a quick stir.
- Seal Instant Pot, set cook time on manual to 15 minutes on High. After pressure has been reached and cook time ends, do a quick release. Remove lid only when you can freely turn it and then stir oats again. Porridge will continue to thicken as it sits.
- Divide cooked porridge into individual bowls and serve with desired fruits, nuts, sweetener, and milk. Get creative and add any fruit, or granola, if desired.
Other Delicious Toppings:
- Chia seeds, sunflower or pumpkin seeds, dried barberries or raisins.
- If you can't find Potter's Porridge and want to duplicate the ingredients as close as possible in this recipe, combine 1/2 cup each of steel cut oats, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and quinoa. Place in an air-tight container and scoop our 2/3 cup to place in your Instant Pot when making this recipe.
- Nutrition values are shown without toppings. Use whatever toppings you like or none at all.
- Any cooked porridge that's leftover can be refrigerated for one day and reheated to enjoy again the next morning.

Very satisfying! It’s creamy and full of texture. A nice change for those on low calorie or Paleo diets 🙂

This was really, really good! Added a pinch of pumpkin spice and used cashews and walnuts. Thanks Sally for the wonderful recipe.

I love porridge and never considered it in the insta pot. I added a little raw sugar to sweeten. This was really tasty, especially with crunchy walnuts. I will definitely make this more often! Thanks for the simple, new idea for breakfast!
Trying this today!
I’ve never had porridge, but this looks so good and easy. I like that you made it in the IP. I’m always looking for new ideas for using it.
I’ve never heard of this before but it looks so good. I’d like to try it, so I’m going to look into it more.

Hi Renee, It is a newer company. I love their product. You’re in the contest and good luck on winning!
I’ve recently converted my husband from instant oatmeal packets to steel cut oats. I showed him your gorgeous photos and he said “That looks like a hearty breakfast. I’d try that tomorrow.” Sold!

Beautiful action packed breakfast!
Such a hearty and delicious breakfast! So many ways to potentially flavor this, you could even go savory and put an egg on top. Can’t wait to try this out!
The porridge looks so tempting and sounds super filling and healthy. Can’t wait to read your post for your quick bread recipe!
