Apple Nut Porridge (Paleo/GF/DF)

February 28th, 2013
Apple Nut Porridge (Paleo/GF/DF)

This is a great dish to add a little variety to breakfast with some eggs, or for a nice snack.

I was craving something different for my morning meal and wanted something warm on a dreary day.

This porridge is inspired from a recipe in the Cafe Gratitude cookbook.


Hope you enjoy!


  • 1 apple (cored and coarsely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup brazil nuts
  • 1  to 1 1/2 cups full fat organic coconut milk (I like Native Forest)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt

Place all ingredient in a Vita-mix or blender.

Pulse blender slowly to maintain a chunky consistency… It doesn’t take much.

Once you’ve reached desired consistency, pour contents into small sauce pan and warm.

Note: we aren’t cooking the mixture… just warming it up so check with your finger to see if its warm.

Serve with sprinkled cinnamon on top!

    Just wondering if almond milk would be a good substitute for coconut milk… sometimes I just can’t get the coconut milk down.. lol. This looks like it will be my new go to breakfast!

    Is the apple cored but not peeled?

    I am OBSESSED with this recipe. I’ve made it several times and it keeps me so full in the morning. I used walnuts the first time, as i had them on hand, and have used cashews too. It’s definitely a bit sweeter with almond milk. Great idea!

    Just made this for the first time subbing unsweetened almond milk and pecans. It was AWESOME! Since learning I have several food sensitivities (dairy, gluten, corn, rice and soy) I’ve been looking for recipes I could make and actually enjoy eating. This is the first I’ve made from your site and now I’m looking forward to making them all! Thanks!
