Paleo Breakfast Porridge


Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 1 serving

Paleo Breakfast Porridge


  • 1/2 cup almonds, ground using a food processor or blender
  • 3/4 cup coconut cream (from the top of a can of refrigerated coconut milk)
  • sweetener of choice (I added 1 teaspoon of raw honey, but stevia also works)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • dash of nutmeg
  • dash of cloves
  • dash of cardamom (optional)


  1. Heat the coconut cream in a small saucepan on medium heat until it forms a liquid.
  2. Add in the ground almonds and sweetener and stir to mix in.
  3. Keep stirring for approximately 5 minutes (it'll start to thicken a bit more).
  4. Add in the spices (have a taste to check whether you want more sweetener or spices) and serve hot.

    How finely did you ground the almonds? Would almond flour be a replacement? Or are they less ground than that?
    I think my daughter would LOVE this for breakfast!

      I like to grind my own (it’s cheaper, and I like them a bit chunkier than the flour).

    This looks like a tasty breakfast. Is it filling?

    Thank you for this! My picky 19 month old loves it.

    Looks great, Louise. And I just bought some coconut cream, how convenient!

    I bet the cardamom adds such a nice touch! This looks like a great breakfast for a rainy Hawaiian “winter” morning.

    Hey, I was just wondering, if I were to use almond flour instead of ground almonds, how much would you suggest I use?

    • Louise March 14, 2014, 1:56 am

      The same amount should be fine.
