Today I would like to share a new breakfast recipe I recently discovered.
I’m a foodie. I love exploring and finding new and creative ways to enjoy my favorite foods.
So I decided to take on the challenge of creating a grain-free version when I found myself craving a warm, comforting bowl of porridge.
I know what you’re thinking: Oatmeal made without grains?
That sounds like a crazy idea!
But I’m here to tell you that this recipe will blow your mind.
I began my journey by researching what others were doing in the grain-free oatmeal community, and I found a dish popular in the Paleo/Low Carb/High Fat community.
But it wasn’t exactly what I had in mind.
So I did some experimenting in my kitchen.
I combined flax with an egg and creamy coconut milk, and before I knew it, I had a bowl of creamy, dreamy porridge.
For a little extra flavor and texture, I added some mashed banana, vanilla, and cardamom, and the result was pure magic.
Not only is this grain-free porridge delicious, but it’s also packed with nutrients.
The healthy fats from the egg yolk, flax seeds, and coconut milk will keep you full and satisfied, while the flax seeds provide fiber, and the egg provides bioavailable protein.
This porridge is gluten-free, dairy-free, and easy to make vegan.
You can have fun topping it with whatever you have on hand because the flavor is mild and versatile.
I’ve loved seasonal fruit, frozen or fresh berries, yogurt, nut butter, crunchy nuts, and even a spoonful of coconut oil or butter.
The possibilities are endless!
There you go-a breakfast recipe that will not only fill you up and fuel you for the day but also set your palate dancing.
Give it a try, and let me know what you think!

- In a pot mix all the ingredients for the porridge. Whisk it free of all lumps and turn on medium to high heat. Use a spoon to stir while it slowly thickens, this will provide a more lumpy porridge like texture. Keep stirring all the time to avoid burning.
