No-Grain Porridge

A grain free nutritionally balanced porridge that I’ve been loving during these last winter mornings. There is nothing wrong with oats or grains but many of you tend to avoid them for gut healing and energy purposes – which can help a lot. This is a delicious protein and fibre rich breakfast porridge that will keep your blood sugar levels very stable all morning. I hope you enjoy!


No-Grain Porridge 


Serves: 1



  • 2 tbsp almond meal
  • 1 serving vanilla protein powder – pea or whey
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 banana, mashed/sliced
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch sea salt
  • vanilla stevia drops – to your liking (I get mine from
  • Berries, banana, almond butter and chopped nuts, for topping (optional)



  1. Add a pot to a heated stove and add the almond meal, chia and protein – then add the water and milk to cover the dry ingredients. Stir well.
  2. Add the banana sliced/mashed, cinnamon, sea salt, stevia through.
  3. Keep mixing until it becomes a creamy porridge like texture.
  4. Serve with remaining banana slices, swirl of almond butter and other toppings for a little extra decadence!

    I’m based in the UK so just wondered: is almond meal the same as ground almonds? and what is 1/2 of almond milk in ml?
    Thanks so much!

    • Hi Rachel! Yes they are the same. 1/2 cup of almond milk is 125mL. Enjoy!

      • Rachel Tavroges-Hunter

        Thanks so much! Could you still make this without the protein powder? And if so would you recommend adding more almond meal / altering the other ingredients?

        Thank you!

        • You can – but this will alter the flavour, texture and nutritional profile of the porridge. You can add an extra 1-2 tbsp of almond meal instead. Thanks!

  • Shannon Browne

    Do you have to have the mixed in mashed bananas if you want a more low-carb option?

    • Hi Shannon! Yes you can avoid the mashed banana if you wish. Enjoy!

  • Jaydene Meadows

    Hi there, if i was to make this in the microwave at work would all the quantities be the same? Thanks! x

    • Hi Jaydene! We haven’t tried it in the microwave but the quantities should remain the same. Let us know how you go! x

  • Jeannie

    Can I use coconut flour instead of almond flour?

    • Hi Jeannie – you could try it! Just make sure to watch the liquid levels. Coconut flour is more dense than almond so may require extra almond milk/water.
