Paleo Porridge

While I don’t consider myself “Paleo” many of the concepts of the diet are naturally part of my families eating lifestyle.  When I came across this recipe for a warm oatmeal like breakfast I was intrigue and gave it a try.  It got three thumbs up from J, Trey, and myself!
I like to make a big batch so it’s ready for a high protein breakfast or pick-me-up snack in a jiffy. 

Paleo Porridge
Recipe from www.thepaleomom.com
Ingredients:

1.    Process coconut, walnuts, almonds, pepitas and flaxseed together in a blender or food processor until finely ground and blade starts to seize.
2.    Boil water in a kettle or in the microwave.  Pour into a microwave-safe container and mix in honey if using. 
3.    Stir ground nuts into hot water.  Add protein or other fixins.
4.    Heat in microwave on high for 30 seconds.  Stir once more.  Let sit for 3-5 minutes to thicken.  Enjoy!

Variations:  Just like traditional porridge, you can stir in some extra ingredients at the end to change the flavor.  Here are some ideas, but feel free to experiment!
