Before jumping to the recipe please note that the below information contains HOT TIPS for this recipe. We try and answer all your questions to guarantee a perfect keto recipe every time.

My Keto Porridge recipe just had to be shared. This is so quick, easy and delicious it is a must make recipe!

Before changing to the ketogenic lifestyle I have to say I loved my quick oats for the occasional breakfast and this low carb porridge has more than filled that gap.

I actually prefer this porridge recipe over any other I have tried. Oddly enough it still tastes a little like the real thing to me. I mean it kind of tastes “oaty”. I think it is the addition of the golden flaxmeal that gives this porridge a real earthiness.

Read on for the keto porridge ingredients and how to make it. By using non dairy based milk this recipe is a perfect keto dairy free breakfast option and also a paleo porridge.

What you need to make Keto Porridge

  1. Coconut Flour. Now I know the idea of a coconut flour porridge recipe does not excite some of you so I have included an almond meal option BUT let me say it doesn’t taste overly coconutty!
  2. Golden flax seed meal.  For those of you with brown flax you can use it but it will be more savoury and bitter. I love golden flax meal and use it in loads of recipes so well worth buying some.
  3. Whey protein isolate. WPI adds extra protein to the porridge and creaminess. It can be substituted with micellar protein powder as well.
  4. Almond milk, coconut milk, hemp mylk or macadamia milk. You choose what ever milk you want to use in your keto porridge.

Low Carb Porridge Variations

There are endless variations you can make with keto porridge but here are just a few of my favourites.

  1. Vanilla Honey. Low Carb Emporium have a new low carb, no sugar honey that is pretty incredible. I mix this with a small amount of vanilla seeds to make a tasty vanilla honey to drizzle over the top
  2. Peanut Butter. Any nut butter will do and this is one of my most favourite porridges or even Chia Pudding.
  3. Chocolate. Mix with some unsweetened cocoa or cacao powder. Mix it through well for a creamy chocolate porridge recipe.
  4. Brown “sugar”. A teaspoon of Sukrin Gold sweetener in granular or fibre syrup for that old fashioned brown sugar porridge taste.
  5. Berry. Whether you make a fresh berry porridge or use a sugar free jam this makes for a very tasty porridge indeed. In the picture above I have some Hawthorne Hill sugar free Blackberry Jam.

3 Ways to make this Porridge

  1. Stove top porridge. Simple quick and easy and all in one saucepan over low to moderate heat. Keep stirring until the porridge is thickened and to your liking.
  2. Microwave porridge. My favourite as it is done in 3 minutes.
  3. Thermomix® porridge. Still easy and a set and forget cooking method that allows you to make a topping while the Thermomix® does all the work.

    Hi Megan I don’t understand your measurements. 1.88 cups of milk and 3.75 tablespoons of golden flax meal. How is that measured?

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      Hey Sally, not sure what was happening with the measures there for you but they are all correct now.

  • Tina says:

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      So happy you tried it and enjoyed it Lynda. I am having some myself today too.

  • SHARON says:

    Does it have to have the whey protein powder? Or is there a substitute? I have everything else.

  • Louise says:

    5 stars
    Simply brilliant with so many options. I can highly recommend both Almond and Keto milk subsitutions.

  • Julie says:

    5 stars
    This is absolutely delicious and just what I was looking for! But…I almost didn’t make it because I was looking for a higher protein breakfast and according to the info this only has 3g per serve. But that didn’t make sense to me as the WPI alone is 26g in 2 Tbs and therefore 6.5 per serve. When you also add the protein from the flaxseed, it comes out higher again. So for me it is perfect – just not sure how you came to those figures Megan? Did I miss something?
