Not eating grains but missing your morning oatmeal? Look no further than this Quick Grain-Free Hot Cereal! This super easy porridge is made in just 3 minutes and it’s gluten-free, paleo, vegan, and Whole30-friendly. This is a staple Whole30 breakfast!


  • ¼ cup finely chopped nuts, I used walnuts + pecans
  • ¼ cup flaked unsweetened coconut, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons flax seed meal
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla bean powder or vanilla extract if you’re not on Whole30
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk of choice
  • 12 tablespoons date paste, to taste (you can also use maple syrup or honey if you’re not on Whole30)

To serve

  • Fresh berries
  • Berry chia jam, make sure it’s unsweetened for Whole30!
  • Cashew butter or other nut butter of choice


  1. In a small bowl, mix together the chopped nuts, flaked unsweetened coconut, flax seed meal, coconut flour, chia seeds, cinnamon, vanilla bean powder, and salt.
  2. Heat the non-dairy milk until steaming, and then pour over the dry ingredients and stir until completely combined – it will thicken as your stir. Add sweetener to taste.
  3. Add toppings as desired, and enjoy!


To prep ahead of time, you can stir together all of the dry ingredients and store in a small jar or container. Just add hot non-dairy milk + sweetener when you’re ready to eat.
