You can't deny the healthy aspects of this recipe. The only thing I might note is that flax seed needs to be cracked before eating. If you don't, it passes through the body without releasing any of it's wonderful omega's. I use an ordinary small coffee grinder that I keep exclusively for spices. At any rate, this is a very versatile recipe. The prunes and raisins can be replaced with your favorite fruit or nuts almost in infinite combinations. I was thinking this is a great take to work recipe. Just add hot water from the tap at the coffee machine and microwave for a minute or two.

Reading over the recipe I realized that I did not specific the need to grind the flax seed first. Sorry! I use about a tbs of GROUND flax seed or flax seed meal. Thanks for clarifying that Brenda:)

I like this recipe, it's a great quick porridge for some variety other than standard oatmeal. I didn't expect the ingredients to make a thick porridge, but it's great. I heat the water & fruit in the microwave for one minute and stir in the dry stuff. I skip the honey and I top mine with non-dairy creamer for a delicious sweetness.
