Your alarm goes off and you reach out from under the covers to switch it off only to realise that it’s freezing. You know you’ve got to get up but your brain is playing a game of tug of war over the decision to stay in your cozy warm bed or face the winter world outside of the covers.
But don’t worry! You’ve got something to look forward to. A nice, hot breakfast is just what you need to get you out of bed and it’s the perfect fuel for the busy day ahead.
Porridge is a winter classic. It’s warm, comforting, filling and doesn’t take too long to make. But what do you do when you’re on a paleo or grain free diet? When grains are off the table, porridge might seem like an impossible task but luckily, we’ve done all the experimenting for you and have come up with the perfect Paleo Porridge Recipe for those cold winter mornings.
Best of all? It’s topped with a crunchy, nutrition packed topping; our Kuranda Wholefoods Paleo Muesli. Who said muesli was just a summer breakfast?!

Tips for this Recipe:
You can add more chia/flaxseed, however, we don’t recommend doing this as it will give you a more “jelly like” consistency (kind of like a chia/flax egg). You can use any nut or seed meal (or a mix of your favourites) in place of the almond meal, however, it will change the taste.
