January 11, 2015 by Leanne Vogel June 11, 2018A keto and grain-free porridge made with just nuts and seeds. Over 24 grams of fiber in every bowl. A hearty meal that’s gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, vegan, low-carb, keto, and paleo. Porridge is good, especially with the weather we’ve been having. I tracked how much time I spent shoveling snow last week… 2 ½ hours. That’s insanity – secretly I love it, so much more refreshing than heading to a stuffy gym. The dogs were playing in the snow, I was listening to music, but I digress. Porridge. Porridge is great… if you eat oats. Heck, even if you eat quinoa or amaranth; the grain-free “seeds” of the porridge world, porridge can be your thing. But, for many of us who can’t digest grains AND have a challenging time with quinoa and amaranth, porridge just isn’t in the cards. Until now. Did you know? Hemp hearts act like oats? You bet. They don’t absorb liquids like oats do, but add them to a pot with keto porridge-like ingredients and BOOM, you have yourself a keto porridge. I used organic Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts for this keto recipe. I like using their hemp hearts because they’re locally produced, I’ve met the team, I’ve seen the facility, I love their message and I’ve even drummed with them (there may have been dancing, too). New to the world of hemp hearts? My pals at Manitoba Harvest created this fun infographic that outlines just how easy hemp hearts are to use. And now that you know how similar they are to oats, you could potentially make keto cookies with them, different keto and grain-free porridge recipes, and more. I’ve tested this keto recipe multiple different ways, you can have a lot of fun with it. Today, I’m giving you the basic keto template. From there, you could add egg whites, egg yolks, grass-fed collagen, replace the ground almonds with more seeds if you’re sensitive to nuts, different spices for different flavors, eggnog in place of milk, you name it. PLAY. (and then share what you did so we can all try it, too!)
