Paleo Creamy Maple Nut Porridge

Anyone on a Paleo diet knows this feeling:  I want something besides eggs and vegetables for breakfast!!  Thus someone, who knows how long ago,  came up with a brilliant idea: porridge made from nuts!  I have seen more versions than I can shake a stick at, and they’re all variations on the same thing.  Here is my version!

Creamy, nutty, rich, and oh so filling…you will be surprised how good Paleo can taste AND how little of this porridge can carry you  through your morning.

A note on nuts:  I have discovered in my venture with this diet that I don’t do well with lots of nuts and seeds.  I am currently experimenting with soaking the nuts to see if my body likes them anymore this way…this recipe is a reflection of that.

Creamy Maple Nut Porridge - PALEO


5.0 from 7 reviews
Paleo Maple-Nut Porridge w/ Banana
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2
  • ½ cup soaked pecans (or a mixture of your preferred nuts). I put some in a bowl overnight if I do not have on hand. I have done this with part macadamia nuts, dreamy!
  • ¾ cup boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons coconut butter (please refer to link above on how to easily make your own)
  • ½ very ripe banana (a soaked medjool date would be another great option!)
  • 2 teaspoons real maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon sea salt (to taste)
  1. In a blender, place all the ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy. Mixture will be thin. If you do not have a high powered blender the nuts will need to be soaked and NOT dehydrated.
  2. Place mixture into a small saucepan over medium low heat. Heat gently until thick and creamy. Serve.

When her third child was born with severe food allergies, Tessa took to the kitchen to figure out how to feed her family well. Always up for a culinary challenge, their journey has taken many twists and turns! Lots of Paleo, and lots of top 8 free. Good food for families, that's what she's about!

  5. I’ve never had any kind of porridge, this looks very good! I’m going to pin it! a

  6. Thanks for sharing on Wildcrafting Wednesday. It sounds yummy. I was wondering how you could do porridge without oatmeal. I think I’ll like this version even better.

  7. Heather R. says:

    I made this porridge this morning and its delicious. My family preferred this over the other GF version I made for them. Thanks for the great recipe!

  9. Lauren says:

    I just made this with almonds since that’s all I had on hand. I used a date and threw everything into my Vitamix. Topped it with a bit more maple syrup to satisfy my sweet tooth. I’m in HEAVEN!!!! This is sooooooo good! It took me under 5 minutes to make. That’s pretty dangerous! I fear I will become addicted. Thank you for this AMAZING recipe!

    • Glad you love it Lauren…and is so creamy and decadent it does seem as if it could be a treat! Danger is right, ha!!! Thanks you so much for dropping back and providing feedback and sharing your version!

    Made this this morning with walnuts and pecans. I was pleasantly surprised. Almost like having marzipan for breakfast. 😀 As much as I love my bacon/ham and eggs in the morning, I can see having this every so often. Loved it. Thanks so much for the recipe!

    Made this today. Didn’t have any maple syrup, so I used honey. It’s delicious!

  23. Chelsea F says:

    This looks great! I haven’t seen a paleo porridge recipe yet that doesn’t use eggs – even though I don’t have an intolerance, it’s always nice to find something new!

    I’m not a Paleo person, but this sounds really delicious and filling! (I find the usual bowl of cereal I eat in the morning doesn’t really keep me feeling full for very long.) Can’t wait to try it. Stopping by from the Let’s Get Real party.
