I make variations of this keto porridge at least once a week, sometimes with turmeric or vanilla instead of cinnamon. It's super easy, low in carbs and works with any nuts or seeds. There's no gluten, no grains, no sugar - it's just real food ingredients!

It's a great breakfast treat that tastes amazing even without sweeteners. It's filling and will keep cravings away - just perfect for your ketogenic or paleo diet plan.

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 honestly would eat this even if I wasn't doing keto, it's a fall breakfast staple. it says 2 servings but I would eat the whole thing if I could.

Thank you so much!

Tried it this morning for the first time, with the cinnamon and erythritol. Tasted excellent, but I agree it would be as good without the sweetness added to it. Next time I make this recipe, I will likely skip that ingredient, and add a dash of salt instead. Love almond butter taste most of all. This will become  a go to recipe for fiber as well.

Thank you Agha, I'm glad you enjoyed!

Thx for the recipe!  I'm new to low-carb/keto as of today for health reasons.  Looks delicious 😊

This was really tasty and simple! My chia seed was bad, so I ended up subbing a chia,flax, and hemp blend. The end result was very filling.

Mmmmmm! Made this and it was so yummy, delicious, and satisfying! Thanks for the recipe! Shared to my Pinterest page Keto For Beginners.

Looks delicious! I'm wondering how well this would reheat in the microwave if I make this and save the second portion for the next day?
Has anyone tried that? Thanks!

Hi Julie, yes you can reheat it in a microwave. If the porridge is too thick, add a splash of water or almond milk.

I really wanted to try this and didn't have almond butter on hand so I made it with flax seed (no hemp either) and a few sliced almonds on top with the toasted coconut. It was very good. I don't like 'slimy' oatmeal-type food and I really don't like milk so I was hesitant but I'm very glad I tried it.
Super good and filling for such a small amount per serving.

I love the look of this as a replacement for my morning porridge, can you substitute almond butter for peanut butter?

I'm sorry for the late response! Yes you can use it if you can tolerate legumes. I avoid peanut butter but that's a matter of personal choice.

It is AMAZING that you used just nuts and seeds to make porridge! The texture looks so creamy. I can't wait to make this for breakfast ASAP.

Thank you Laurel, I hope you like it! 😊

We are out of hemp right now. Can I sub flax and if so, how much?

Yes, you can. 2 tablespoons of sunflower seeds (whole or crumbled) or 1 tablespoon of flaxmeal will be a good substitutes.

Thank you Martina for this recipe. It's such a great change for our mornings. I did however end up using pumpkins seeds in place of the hemp seed since I ran out. It's still great! I agree that this does not need any sweetener.

Thank you April, I'm glad you like it!

I made this morning with some slight adjustments because I didn't have all the ingredients in  my kitchen. I was wondering is it 580 cal per serving or 580 cal total for two servings so 290 cal per serving?

Hi Marie, it's 580 kcal per serving.

Yikes! That's almost half my calories for the day. Looks good, just have to adjust it. Thanks! I love your site/app and appreciate all your work!

Thank you Robin! Try skipping the MCT oil and substitute the coconut milk with the same amount of almond milk. I hope this helps!

Hello Martina,
I was recently in London and made some effort to be able to buy your fat bombs book! Looks amazing, will try some recipes soon.
I have also a basic keto app from you but i resent the amount of meat needed for most.
Will you have a complete vegetarian app soon perhaps? with breakfast/lunch/diner ideas.. I would be so very grateful. I do use yoghurt/cheese and eggs but no meats or fish of any kind.
I do hope so! Keep up the beautiful recipes, so well presented too.
Monique from the Netherlands

Thank you for your kind words and support, Monique! I've been working on a new vegetarian package and a few more vegetarian recipes for the existing packages. I don't think we will make another app because it would be very hard to maintain two apps like that. What we plan to add is an allergy/preference recipe filter so that you can easily find all vegetarian recipes.
All this will take some time though, because we've been busy (new cookbook and a major app update. The Basic version will soon offer an upgrade to the full version with the planning and tracking features - it will be another 2-4 weeks).

Made this on the weekend. So delicious and so filling!

Oh man!  I cannot wait to try this in my instant pot (Amazon link) - it has a porridge setting that I didn't think i'd be able to use.  Thank you!!!
Also, I love coconut so much, so any chance to use it in my cooking is great.

Thank you Hayley, I haven't thought of using my Instant Pot! 😊

This was amazing! Thank you so much.

This was very good and tasty! It hit the sweet and comforting spot!

Thank you Angie!
