This keto porridge will warm your winter mornings and brighten up your days. It's filling, delicious and so good for you. Here are some of the benefits:

  • Turmeric is an often underestimated spice that is a powerful adaptogen. This means that it gives our body the ability to adapt to environmental factors such as stress and toxins and protect against them.
  •  Bee pollen has anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties with several therapeutic applications.
  • A great source of electrolytes. Just one serving of this keto porridge will provide almost 50% RDA of magnesium and 25% EMR of potassium. There is no tastier way of beating keto-flu!

Substitutions and Tips

  • You can use any healthy low-carb sweetener but I prefer the subtle sweetness of roasted almond butter and coconut without additional sweeteners.
  • You can make this recipe nut-free by using sunflower seed butter or coconut butter instead of almond butter, sunflower or pumpkin seeds instead of walnuts, and water instead of almond milk.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

I can't wait to try this. I've been looking for quick morning alternatives to eggs and avocado, and this looks like it will do the trick. I wanted to ask what the difference is between using flaked and shredded coconut, besides the size. I notice that you tend to use the former in your recipes. I'm sure that using shredded is fine, but I wondered if it's just personal preference or if there's a reason one would work better than the other.
Thanks your your site! I learned so many useful tips and tricks, and the recipes I've tried have been really good. You've made starting and keeping on keto a lot easier!

Thank you for your kind words, Becca! You can use either in this recipe. I prefer flaked because it makes the porridge a little more crispy and gives it more texture but that's a matter of preference 😊

FANTASTIC!!! No sweetener required!

OMG this is SO GOOD! I made this last night with pecan halves and omitted the sweetener, and had it this morning reheated for breakfast... Divine! The portion size doesn't look like much and I thought I might still be hungry after, but not at all. This is utterly lush and sating and I can't wait to have the second portion for breakfast tomorrow. Thanks so much for this! Btw I assume I can use any nut or seed butter? I'm out of almond butter but I have macadamia nut butter, sunbutter, cashew butter, hazelnut butter and brazil nut butter! (Er... What can I say, I love my nut and seed butters 😊) Could you please provide the macros for these substitutions? Thanks!

Thank you Anu! Yes, you can definitely use any other nut butters, just avoid cashew butter, as there's 16 g net carbs in just 1/4 cup as compared to almond butter that is less than 4 g net carbs. If you really want to use it, try to only use more than 1-2 tablespoons if you want to keep the carbs low. All the other nut and seed butter substitutions are suitable and will result in a similar carb count.

Hi Martina!   I don't have hemp seeds but I really want to make this tomorrow.  Do you think I can sub with flax seeds?

Absolutely, flax is perfect for making porridge! 😊

I love turmeric with eggs and bacon. Looks like based on the comments I need to add a little pepper too 😊

Yes, it's been added to the list of ingredients - just a pinch will be enough 😊

Looks like an interesting recipe but if you're going to go to the bother of using turmeric specifically for it's anti-inflammatory properties you should add pepper to make sure your body can actually use all of it. The fat does increase bioavailability but the pepper will help further.

It's both turmeric and bee pollen. Yes, you're right, black pepper significantly improves absorption of turmeric and I'll add a note. I did mention this in my turmeric milk recipe but forgot to add it here 😊 Thanks for spotting that! Keto Golden Turmeric Milk

This porridge was so delicious and much better than oats. I just used a few drops of stevia and it was so good!

Definitely going to try this recipe out! I found a few online that I was not a big fan of, but this recipe looks great. Thanks for the share!
