Ingredients for Coconut Flax Porridge

I think you may have deduced the 2 ingredients that comprise this porridge: (1) coconut flour, and (2) flaxseed meal.

If you like (I do) add a pinch of salt, too.

How to Make Vegan Keto Coconut Flax Porridge

To make 1 serving, you will need 3 and 1/2 tablespoons coconut flour and 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal. It will not look like much, but just wait…

Use the Stovetop or Microwave to Cook the Porridge

You can make the cereal in one of two ways. I’ll start with the stovetop method.

Bring 1 cup of water to a boil in a small saucepan. Turn the heat to low, add the coconut flour-flax mixture and stir for about 1 minute until thick and creamy. It will yield about 1 and 1/4 cups of porridge

Coconut flour has a natural sweetness, so you enjoy this with little or no adornments. However, you can accessorize your porridge any which way you like, too, with a drizzle of milk, fresh or dried fruits, nuts, seeds, sweeteners,  you name it.

I love the subtle coconut flavor of this porridge, but if you want to offset it, add a pinch of spice (e.g., cinnamon, pumpkin spice, cardamom), a few drops of vanilla (or a teeny-tiny drop of almond extract), or some citrus zest.

Blueberries + coconut sugar + almond milk is wicked good.

Next, the microwave method. Place the coconut-flax mixture in a bowl (or a 2-cup Mason jar, for breakfast on the go or at your desk). Pour 1 cup of boiling water into the bowl or jar, stirring to combine. Microwave on high for about 30 seconds. Done!

I added about 1 tablespoon of chopped dried cranberries to the jar below. So good!

I am partial to a cold drizzle of milk on top of my porridge, but you can certainly use milk in place of the water (or half milk, half water) for an even creamier result.

I hope you love this cereal as much as I do! I even ate a batch for a mid-afternoon snack. Happy Friday!

I just tried this and it is definitely going into the rotation of recipes! I didn’t have high hopes but it is really good. I added a touch of cinnamon and a teaspoon of artificial sweetener as that is how I like my oatmeal. It even looks like those hot cereals you make from a box.

Whohoo! So happy you like this one, Anne---it reminds me of farina and cream of wheat from childhood, too. 😊


Sunday 21st of August 2022

Just discovered this simple gem and OMG, delicious!!! With just the addition of a bit of agave and cinnamon this time, but the possibilities are endless! Celebrating your creativity and the simplicity and deliciousness of your recipes. 🙏🤗 A biiiiiiiiiiiig THANK YOU and hug from Portugal!


Sunday 21st of August 2022

Yay!!! So happy you like it and can see all of the possibilities--it is still one of my breakfast favorites :) And yes, it is a blank canvas (like oatmeal), ready to be transformed into whatever flavor combos you like. Greetings back to you, from Texas, Isabel 😊

This was tasty! I had a batch of fresh berries I needed to do something with and came across this recipe. I used water from my InstaHot and didn't even need to cook this. A little stevia and cream (along with my berries) yielded a delicious treat. Thanks!


Saturday 20th of August 2022

You are so welcome, Rachelle!


Saturday 12th of March 2022

🤔 Very easy but this was just okay for me. I'll try again tomorrow adding some tried and true porridge elements like cinnamon powder and vanilla extract. I'll give an update if I do! Nonetheless, thank you for such a simple and easy recipe!


Monday 14th of March 2022

Sure, Michelle! Yes, jazz it up as much as you like (like you would oatmeal)--fresh or dried fruit, spices, vanilla, etc.


Saturday 22nd of January 2022

This looks wonderful! Can you clarify the nutrition information though? Coconut flour has 60 cal/TBSP and Flaxseed has 40 cal/TBSP so this seems well above 139 cal/serving?

Hi Amy! What brand are you using? The brands I am looking at are 69 calories per 2 tablespoons (30 per tablespoon) And Bobs red mill flaxseed mess add l is 35 calories per tablespoon
