This paleo porridge recipe is an answer to anyone who still has cravings for that nice warm porridge in the morning.

Paleo Porridge

Porridge traditionally a dish that is made by boiling up ground or crushed grain. The meal we all know today is commonly made with oats or oatmeal. It is also cooked using either boiling milk or sometimes just plain water.

As you probably already know that oats aren’t allowed on the paleo diet so we will need to use some other ingredients to replace the oats. The shredded coconut and almond meal we use instead help produce a lovely paleo friendly porridge.

We also use coconut milk in place of just regular milk, so you still get that creaminess of a typical porridge. Personally, I think you get a much better porridge without oats as it doesn’t end up gluggy.

This paleo breakfast porridge is super easy to cook up if you need a breakfast fast. It usually takes me about 5-10 minutes however if you make the porridge mix up ahead of time you can cut it down to only 3-4 minutes.
