Coconut Paleo Porridge and Pumpkin Spice Paleo Porridge

20131010-224913.jpg

I seriously miss eating steel cut oatmeal in the mornings, especially in the Fall. It was so comforting. I have tried a few other versions of paleo porridge, but this version that I came up with myself is my favorite. First is the original version; second is the pumpkin spice version!

Coconut Porridge Ingredients:
1/3 cup of coconut butter
1 ripe banana, mashed
3-4 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 tsp if vanilla (optional)
1/4 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut
1 handful of slivered almonds (optional)

Pumpkin Spice Porridge Ingredients:
1/3 cup of coconut butter
1 ripe banana, mashed
1/3 cup of pumpkin purée
3-4 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 tsp of vanilla
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut

Directions:
1. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt coconut butter and mashed banana until they mix up nicely. (For the Pumpkin Spice version, add the pumpkin purée here as well and mix.)
2. Stir in remaining ingredients and bring up to desired temperature (3-4 min or so).
3. Serve warm!

Notes: I add the vanilla because I love the vanilla flavor, and I think the almonds add a nice crunch. You could really mix in anything you want or have lying around, like some dried fruit or other chopped nuts.

Also beware that this is definitely not a low carb meal – with the potassium from the banana and the carb and fat content, it could make a great post-WOD treat!
