How to make Paleo Breakfast Porridge - AKA Paleo Oatmeal

- Stir until well combined.
- Add coconut milk (or milk of choice) and maple syrup. Stir until combined.
- Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.
This paleo porridge with coconut flour is naturally low carb but if you need to make it keto friendly you can use a sugar-free maple flavored syrup. We like to use Lakanto.
I have not tried making this paleo porridge with almond flour but if you can do coconut flour you might like my Grain-Free Hot cereal.
Just replace the 1 tablespoon of coconut flour with additional almond flour to make it coconut free.

So easy! Thanks for sharing, Chrystal!
Thanks Shirley! I love easy recipes 🙂
Thank you for sharing this, Chrystal.
I have food allergies that prevent me from eating certain foods (sugar allergy) but this will fit in nicely to my gluten free diet.
Can't wait to try it!
My best to you and your family,
Thank you for comenting 🙂 I hope you enjoy it. I have other recipes on the recipes page that are also sugar-free.
Wow Chrystal, I never would have thought to put these ingredients together like you did. I now know just what to do with the coconut flour in my pantry. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
The coconut and flax give more of a porridge texture vs. just the chia seed 🙂 If you like it thicker, add another tablespoon of coconut flour. Enjoy!
Awesome recipe! Do you know the nutrition information of it??
I don't because it varies on the exact ingredient that is added.
I just made this paleo porridge! However the liquid has been absorbed quite quickly and it looks quite dry. Is that meant to happen? Do i add more liquid in the morning?
The liquid should not be absorbed that fast. If that happens, just add more liquid and stir. You can do it right away, or in the morning before you enjoy it. Sometimes liquid is absorbed faster because the almond flour or coconut flour are extra dry, and it absorbs it quicker. Hope that helps!
My mixture was very dry right away and come morning it was very thick & dry. My chia seeds were not even noticable. Does it matter what chia seeds you use? I found my porridge not very palatable unfortunately.
Sorry to hear your porridge did not turn out. I make this recipe often and it it far from dry. Is there a chance you might have mis-measured something?
Just made it and added a little vanilla and cinnamon. Plan on having it tomorrow morning with blueberries. It's thickening up already and although I just made it, it already tastes yummy! Thank you for the recipe 🙂
I'm so glad you like it! Thank you for letting me know.
