Yummy Almond Porridge (Paleo, NSD)

I made a really nice starch free porridge today! Nice and thick. I miss the simplicity, ease and convenience of a simple bowl of porridge, and this will surely be a standard breakfast from now on ^_^

Lately I have been bringing the dry ingredients to work, and just adding some hot water and honey. It's a really handy and quick meal, cheap, and gives me long lasting energy.

Half cup almond meal
1 and half teaspoon of coconut flour 
Half teaspoon cinnamon 
3-4 tablespoons coconut oil
2/3 cup water

Mix the dry ingredients first so as to avoid lumps. Now add oil and water to a pot and simmer on stove or heat in microwave for about a minute until thick. If it gets too thick add a little water. 

Now serve with some honey on top and perhaps a little butter :)

This is the second time I made it and I got the thickness right this time. If it is too runny it should be fine to just add some more coconut flour - just be careful not to let it clump up. 

Things to try:
More cinnamon - half a small teaspoon adds a nice aroma
Glutinous rice flour - for extra energy / endurance / less fatigue. 1 tsp is good
Molasses - third to half a tsp is enough for a yummy flavour, anymore and it's too strong
Almond butter
Almond milk
Coconut milk
