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.
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!
