Paleo Pumpkin Porridge

20130528-195900.jpgIt was 5’c this morning. Time for wintry breakfasts.

Got leftover pumpkin? Want something warm and filling for breakfast? With added coconut creaminess and nuts?
How about Pumpkin Porridge?

Paleo Pumpkin Porridge

Inspired by Pumpkin N’oatmeal

Serves one (heartily)


  • mashed pumpkin, 1/2 cup
  • eggs, 2
  • coconut milk/cream, 1/4 cup
  • shredded coconut, 1/4 cup
  • walnuts (or any other nut; slivered almonds or macadamias), handful
  • cinnamon, 1 teaspoon
  • coconut oil
  • pumpkin seeds (pepitas), sprinkle


  1. Heat coconut oil in a saucepan
  2. Toast nuts
  3. Add pumpkin, shredded coconut, milk/cream, cinnamon into the saucepan
  4. Heat
  5. Beat in eggs
  6. Heat through until it makes that porridgey ploppy noise.
  7. Put in bowl
  8. Spoon on extra coconut milk/cream and a sprinkling of pumpkin seeds
  9. Eat

Add other stuff

  • I made this with leftover Carrot & Parsnip Puree (no cinnamon – more savoury). Could be good with sweet potato too
