Just tweaking an older drop bear porridge recipe (the original seems to have been heavily modified from this recipe) to what I have in the cupboard - using WPC as it is a little cheaper and trying to substitute Olive oil for the peanut oil. I've left substituted items in as 0g for myself and others to play with. I mix two days of ingredients at a time using simple kitchen scales from dx.com and two big 2.75L decor tubs (the extra volume of using two really helps keep things clean and getting a good mix). Using a $10 coffee grinder I grind up the salts and vitamins and leave the rest whole. (less work, less cleaning) I eat it as a porridge every morning, with sprinkle of cinnamon. This recipe satisfies most nutritional requirements for au/us/rob. Regarding the high Manganese, you can make your own judgement. It is still within the AU NHMRC limits. edit 31/8/14: comments on similar recipes show a little concern for some high levels of iron and other elements. I brought some ingredient levels down a bit such as milo and epsom salts, and might try substituting some other things. It doesn't seem to be possible to get the oats powdery enough with a coffee grinder unfortunately so they will settle. p.s. don't grind the oats and you have half decent (slightly gluggy) porridge. pour over boiling water, stir, 30 sec in microwave, stir, another 30 secs and stir. sprinkle cinnamon.
