Printable Recipe: Tropical Grain-free Breakfast Porridge {FREE Download}

December 3rd, 2013 · 39 Comments · Uncategorized

A real food breakfast isn’t all about oatmeal, eggs, and bacon.

(At least not every day. But once or twice a week? Bring on the eggs and bacon!)

Like every meal, you need variety at breakfast. But in most families, you also need quick, easy, and able-to-be-made-before-Mom-gets-her-contacts-in.

You know how those mornings go. ;)

 Healthy Breakfast Ideas - Grain-free Porridge

I’m so excited to share the new cover for The Healthy Breakfast Book: Cereal-Free Secrets to Starting the Day with Real Food, now ready!

It has over 50 recipes to keep your mornings nourished, creative, and, well…possible. Sometimes “possible” is a good goal, and my “10 Secrets to Real Food Morning Success” will get you to “possible” and beyond!

Today I’m sharing a little sneak peek of that recipe in the upper left corner of the cover: Tropical Grain-free Breakfast Porridge, free courtesy of our post sponsor Squooshi.

Here’s what people have been saying about it:

This was FABULOUS!!! My 4 year old said “Mmmmm, Mama you sure make yummy cereal.” Smile My 11-month-old sucked it back like it was bacon…oh wait, that’s me.

– from a tester…who might be another blogger…and I bet if you read her you know exactly who, mwaha!

The entire family (including boys and husband) enjoyed this. It was sweet enough that that the boys did not ask for honey/maple syrup/sugar. Yay! That is a definite win!

Recipe Notes on Porridge

Grain-free Tropical Banana Pineapple Breakfast PorridgeIf you’ve never used coconut flour before, this is a nice recipe to try it with. You can experiment with a grain-free breakfast without having to worry about baking or wasting a lot of time or expensive ingredients on something you’re not sure your family will go for. It’s nice to be able to taste as you go, which doesn’t work with baking.

With coconut flour, a little goes a long way, so that bag, although expensive, should last a while. You can purchase it online at Amazon and Tropical Traditions. Prices are often changing, so it’s worth checking multiple brands (and watch for free shipping about once a month at TT).

Many recipe testers also pointed out how great this one is as a baby or toddler food – nutrient dense yet, you know, mooshy.

That reminded me of our Squooshis, which we typically only use for smoothies, and I got out of the rut:

The kids loved them for breakfast, and they were easy to fill too:

That’s the pumpkin pie version in the picture…

For our next road trip that starts in the morning, this is definitely going to be my kids-eat-in-the-car strategy! I’ll probably have to pack two for each kid.

I hope you enjoy the recipe and that it’s a nice surprise for your family! Be sure to let me know how it goes in the comments.

What do you usually make for breakfast? Do you ever have porridge?
