FLAX & COCONUT PORRIDGE  // A Low-Carb Recipe for Paleo Friendly “Oatmeal”


Allison Schaaf: Want to learn how to make
a Paleo oatmeal? Watch this video to learn my favorite recipe for Paleo porridge. It’s
like oatmeal, but without the oats. Hey, meal preppers. Allison Schaaf: It’s Allison, prep dish founder,
here to help you create happier, healthier meal time. This recipe came at the request
of meal plan subscribers looking for a grain-free, Paleo oatmeal, noatmeal for short, and has
quickly become a favorite recipe amongst my thousands of meal plans subscribers. Allison Schaaf: The base of this recipe is
flax, which will really help to give you the consistency of oatmeal. I will sometimes refer
to this as a flax oatmeal or a flax porridge. So, let’s jump in with the recipe. Allison Schaaf: Heap one cup of milk or water
in a sauce pan over medium heat. Add three tablespoons coconut flour, one fourth cup
shredded coconut, two tablespoons flax meal, or if you’re using whole flax seed, you’ll
want to grind it first to make your own flax meal. Then add one half teaspoon vanilla,
one half teaspoon cinnamon, cook for one to two minutes or until soft and heated through.
From here, you will divide your porridge into two bowls and top with your toppings with
choice. So, nuts like pecans, sliced almonds or walnuts, fruits like berries, grated apples
or peaches, and then add your sweetener of choice, honey or maple syrup, and this step
is optional. One of my favorite combos is apples, pecans, and maple syrup. I also liked
fresh raspberries, sliced almonds and honey. Allison Schaaf: So, there you have it. That
is my Paleo oatmeal. So, a quick note on meal prep. If you wanted to prep these flax seed
oatmeals at the beginning of the week during your meal prep, I would simply mix together
all of the dry ingredients. So, you’ll add three tablespoons coconut flour, one fourth
cup shredded coconut, two tablespoons flax meal, or if you’re using whole flax seed,
you’ll want to grind it first to make your flax meal, and the half a teaspoon cinnamon.
Make a separate container for each day of the week you plan to prep the noatmeal. Then
at breakfast, you can add all of these to one cup of milk, and add your vanilla, and
of course all of the toppings. Allison Schaaf: So, that’s how I meal prep
my Paleo breakfast porridge. If you’re looking for more Paleo recipes like this, flax seed
