Paleo Breakfast Porridge

  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 1 serving


  • 1/2 cup almonds, ground using a food processor or blender
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream (from the top of 1 can of refrigerated coconut milk)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 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 and water 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!

    Louise Hendon - February 17

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

Garage Gyms - February 17

This looks like a tasty breakfast. Is it filling?

Nichole - February 18

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

Carolyn - February 19

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?

Darlene - March 14

Louise .. this is great! I missed my hot cereal so much!!

After skimming the coconut cream off the top of the can of coconut milk, what do you do with the remainder of the coconut milk?

    Louise Hendon - June 2

    It’s mostly just water at the bottom, so I just throw it away. If you want a thinner porridge then you can shake up the can first and use the entire can.

Alan - June 29

Very good breakfast and also very filling. Love it

Melissa - June 30

Could you use cashews or walnuts instead of almonds? If so would you add to or change the recipe at all?

    Louise Hendon - June 30

    Yep – those should work (but it will taste different!). No need to change the recipe.

Sally - August 16

Do you use activated almonds?

Lydya - January 16

Made this for breaky today super yummy. Omitted sweetener and cardamom and added sliced banana. It was so so so filling I can barely move after from such a small serving 🙂
