I'm seeing tons of pumpkin recipes floating around the internet - which makes me super giddy. I love pumpkin. From sweet to savory, or hot to cold, I can eat almost anything made with pumpkin.
One of the recipes I've seen the most variations for is pumpkin oatmeal. As much as I love oats, I know that not everyone can enjoy them. Whether Celiac, living a grain-free lifestyle, or simply not loving oats, Paleo Pumpkin Porridge might be your newest favorite hot cereal, without oats, of course.
Can I make this without almond flour?
I haven't tried making this with just the coconut flour. This recipe was designed using a combination of the two.
This Paleo Pumpkin Porridge comes together in a flash, and you have options. You can microwave it to heat it up, heat it slowly over the stove-top, or you can mix it and store it up to a day in your refrigerator, and reheat when ready.
The other option you have is to mix all the dry ingredients in a container and wait to add the liquid until you are ready to eat. Think of it as instant hot cereal!
Do you have a more instant option?
If you mix the dry ingredients for this paleo pumpkin porridge in advance you can heat up water until boiling and pour it in and stir. Let it sit for 5 minutes, then enjoy. It's like instant oatmeal without the outs.
This Pumpkin Paleo Porridge is lightly sweetened and bursting with cinnamon and pumpkin pie spices. You can top it with your favorite toppings like cream, coconut cream, maple syrup, and nuts, to name a few.
Can I use honey instead of coconut sugar or maple syrup?
Yes. You can use your sweetener of choice. If you use a low-carb sweetener, start with a half teaspoon and work from there.
What is the carb count is for the recipe?
Right now I am not counting carbs. You are welcome to plug the ingredients you use into a nutrition calculator to calculate carbohydrates.
This paleo pumpkin porridge, also sometimes called paleo pumpkin oatmeal, is probably one of the most simple hot breakfast cereals to make, short of buying the prepackaged grain-free hot cereals from the store. It's also less expensive, and can be made from scratch within minutes. I hope you like it as much as we do!

Any idea on what the carb count is for the recipe?? this one looks better than the one I saw on Youtube. At least it has some sort of sweetener added to it. Being a newly diagnosis diabetic on the paleo diet, I miss oatmeal fiercely. Though flax isn't on the paleo diet, the health benefits and once in a while treat works for me. LOL. Thanks for posting this on the internet.
Hi! I don't know what the carb count is, but you could plug the ingredients you use into a nutrition calculator. I know flax is controversial on whether or not it's Paleo, but many feel the health benefits are important in a Paleo diet 🙂 You could leave it out if needed.
HOW many servings is this please? Great recipe! X
Super yummy! I am starting a whole 30 so left out the added sweetener. My homemade squash purée was nice and sweet as it was. I also added MCT oil, collagen, and an egg. Loved it, thank you!
Thank you for stopping by and letting me know you liked it! I'll have to remember to add collagen to mine next time I make it.
oh - just saw you DID list the carbs, etc. Please delete my two posts in that case! I just read where someone asked and you said you don't include it. Now I see you do -- so please excuse my posts. Thanks, Diane
No problem. Thank you!
Just made this for breakfast...it was so easy and yummy!! I omitted the sugar since Whole 30 and added a little vanilla extract (allowed now) and topped with chopped walnuts and banana which made it sweet enough. Next time will add some collagen as well. Thanks for sharing this.
I so glad you liked it. Thanks for sharing what you used.
