Breakfast porridge that tastes like Nutella? Oh yes! Especially if it only takes a few minutes to prepare.

Although there are no oats used in this recipe, you will be surprised how much it tastes like real porridge. Chia seeds and hazelnut butter for creaminess, flaked almonds for the perfect crunch, and hemp seeds for extra magnesium. Best of all, you can enjoy a bowl of this satisfying keto-approved porridge in less than 15 minutes!

Substitutions and Tips

This breakfast porridge recipe is low in carbs, dairy-free and vegan in case that's the approach you follow.

You can make this recipe nut-free by using seed milk instead of nut milk. Here's a guide to making nut & seed milk if you're making your own. To make this recipe coconut-free, simply replace the cream with more hazelnut milk or almond milk.

Need more protein? Add some whey protein powder or collagen before you add the seeds. If needed, use a stick blender to make the mixture smooth before adding the remaining ingredients.

Meal Prep Tip

Here's a meal prep tip from a reader. You can prepare the dry mix in advance. To do that, double or triple the recipe and place the dry ingredients in a jar: almond flakes, chia seeds, hemp seeds, cacao powder and sweetener. This mix can be stored in your pantry for 2 to 3 months.

To make 1 serving, heat up 1/3 + 1 tbsp nut milk, 2 tbsp coconut milk, 1/4 tsp vanilla extract and 2 tbsp hazelnut butter. Measure out 1/2 cup of the dry mix and add to the hot milk. Stir to combine, let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes, and then top with 1 square of chopped dark chocolate.

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.

Hey Martina, every time I check out a recipe and click the print button, nothing happens. I'd like to have it in a printable format instead of printing the webpage for my folder of keto recipes.

Hi Hayley, this seems to be an issue with Facebook (I assume you opened this by finding it on Facebook). If you open this recipe in Safari or any other browser, it will work. For some reason Facebook seems to be blocking actions on websites...

I love this delicious, indulgent, winter warming recipe Martina. Thank you so much for sharing with us. I'm gonna make a large batch of the dry mix: sweetener, cacao powder, chia and hemp seeds. And when I come to making the porridge, all I have to do is heat up the milks + hazelnut spread and add 1/2 cup of the dry mix.
I love recipes I can make batches of, they're good for me because I get extremely fatigued and perfect for mum who strays from keto when she can't find keto foods!!

That's a great tip Asiya, I'll add it to the recipe. It's always good to find ways to save time, especially in the morning, and this will be perfect to prepare in advance!
