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.
