2 Minute Paleo Porridge

2 Minute Paleo Porridge

The biggest reservation people have expressed to me about the Paleo diet is: “What will I eat for breakfast?”
Protein heavy breakfasts like sausage, eggs, or bacon are fine for some but a bit heavy for everyone, especially those used to the lighter comforts of toast, cereal or oatmeal in the morning.
Of course there are homemade Paleo versions of toast and cereal but they require time, energy and baking skills to make. But this oatmeal porridge “taste-a-like” dish is much easier to throw together, and is bound to be a pleaser for children and adults alike.
The banana adds plenty of natural sweetness, the shredded coconut mimics the texture of oats and the cashew butter lends creaminess.
I topped my porridge with trail mix of salty nuts and dried fruit and cardamom spice, but you can add favorite toppings like fresh berries, a sprinkle of cinnamon, or coconut cream.
And if you’re in a festive pumpkin mood right now, add a tablespoon or two of pumpkin puree and some pumpkin spice for a pumpkin n’oatmeal!
This recipe is for one serving, so double or triple it to make more. It is also 21 Day Sugar Detox approved if you use a green-tipped banana!
Enjoy one of the easiest Paleo breakfast you make make! And heat it up if you like your breakfast to be warm.




  1. Mash the banana together with the shredded coconut and cashew butter.
  2. I used a fork to mash everything together. Top with fresh berries or chopped nuts.

After a year on a strict Paleo diet she was completely healed and her food allergies were reversed. She’ll always be grateful to her health challenges for making her learn to cook years ago. These days she’s Paleo because she loves the creative challenge of cooking delicious grain-free, real food. She spends much of her spare time experimenting in herPaleo Kitchen Lab and eating the experiments. You can check out her recipes here

    This is so easy, I will definitely try this one out tomorrow.
    I love porridge, and It’s one of those things I miss since going grain free.
