This 3 minute paleo compliant porridge is the perfect comforting food for rainy morning breakfasts. Snuggle up with warm toasty coconut and almond essence and the deep flavors of cinnamon and pear. 100% good for you and easy to make 😉 Gluten free, grain free, and vegan.
The only rush hour here in Plain, Washington is at 3:30 every day during ski practice. Eighty kids from our small mountain town of 600 people pour into “down town”… a.k.a. the only commercial building (gas station and hardware) for ski practice.
Our little mountain town nestled in the heart of the Cascade mountains may be small, but never short on fun or an excuse to have a community gathering. Nordic ski trails have taken over every mile from my front yard to 15 miles beyond. And if you really wanted more, you could hop off just about any road and there is most likely a ski trail there too 🙂 We like to ski here. It’s no surprise, when gazillions of tourists pour in for the weekend to ski. All of a sudden, our still snow globe world becomes a bustling hive for outdoor enthusiasts!
Some days there will be 80 kids out there on the groomed fields chasing each other on skis, playing capture the flag. Sunday afternoons are for ski races in Grahams field. If you came here on a Sunday afternoon, you amy just find all the church family’s lined up along the pine trees clanging cow bells with their mittened hands. Friday nights are for community dinners, bonfires, and games. It all may sound a bit Stars Hallowy, but I wouldn’t trade it.
All that to say, this lovely porridge bowl reminds me of slow mountain living. Where snow days are an excuse for powder runs. Every time without fail, if there is more than 4” of snow, business closes and we all head into the mountains to shred a little morning powder. This lovely warm bowl of paleo goodness warms your soul. And if you miss those days of malt o meal, this bowl will gladly deliver.
Piping hot porridge.
Okay, enough of all the happenings here, let’s get to this bowl of yumminess! Who’s down?
I am such a fan of hot cereal! I remember waking up to my Dad making his ritual oatmeal in the mornings. The smell of dark roast coffee brewing. The sounds coming from the stereo. Morning light. Sweaters. Ski days. Tunes from the 2000’s. Obviously I could go on about what this porridge reminds me of.
But now it’s your turn! What’s your favorite part for waking up to a warm breakfast bowl? Do you have fond memories of propping your chin against your hands while tapping your feet against the wood floor in tune with the music coming from the stereo that your kid version self is huddled close to as you dip your bowl in and out of your hot cereal?😜
Ingredients. Necessity. 😊
I’ve been brainstorming ways to keep it healthy around here. Trying to cut back on the sugars now that the holidays are past us. So this breakfast porridge is a great option! Because, you can make it without any sweetener or add a little drizzle of honey for some pizazz.
I love the earthy vibes of pears and cinnamon. Can’t get enough! This porridge carries all of those deep nutty flavors, but is light enough to make your tummy happy too.😊
Ready to dig in? This porridge only takes 3 minutes to prepare, which is pretty much a lifetime highlight. Breakfast in three minutes? Don’t mind if I do.😉 Enjoy! Love from my kitchen to yours,
