    Heaven and danger, lol, I love it! And good for you for flipping off Agriculture Canada and the dairy cartel.

    Hi there.

    I was wondering if (hoping…) you could offer an alternative to the egg whites?
    I am intolerant to eggs…and would LOVE a paleo breakfast cereal :)

    Thanks so much.

      Hi Zosia,

      Unfortunately, the texture and body of the cereal are from the egg whites, without them this recipe would not work at all. The links at the bottom of the recipe might offer you an alternative. Perhaps a “granola” based cereal with nuts and coconut?

    Read this so many times thinking you’d missed an ingredient.. it’s like porridge without oats! I imagine it is like a custard, light and fluffy with texture from the hemp hearts. I love this first photo big time. It reminds me of the early morning light casting over our wooden deck during breakfast.

    Hi Elizabeth,

    This looks great. I clicked to it from your Whole Wheat Bread which I can’t wait to try.
    I wanted to comment on the health benefits or otherwise of dairy. I read a book recently called, ‘Your Life in Your Hands’ by Professor Jane Plant. Her book convinced me that there is a strong link between the consumption of dairy and the prevalence of breast and prostate cancers. This is the case for all kinds of dairy products though industrially produced dairy is much worse because of the extra hormones and antibiotics given to the cows. Anyway, I thought you may like to check it out. Thankyou for the information about the carrageenan. I drink alot of almond milk so I will watch out for that in future.

      Thanks Angela,

      Although I have read a fair amount about dairy and it’s ups and downs in recent months, I do continue to eat dairy in it’s raw form from grass fed cows. I believe the benefits of full fat, raw, organic, pastured dairy FAR outweighs any problems it may cause for me. Thank you!

    I made this and loved it! I wondered if I subbed the banana for applesauce would I still get that fluffy texture?

      I think it would probably be a bit runnier, but give it a try and report back!

    This is just great and I love the vanilla/cinnamon combo! Right now into week 2 of the sugar detox challenge, your recipe fits perfectly into our meal plan :) (ref.: timreviews.com/21daysugardetox) I’m looking forward to discover more great recipes here as I’m intending to eat pure paleo after the sugar challenge.
    Thank you,

    I have made this porridge many times now and it’s really delicious! Instead of hemp and nut butter I usually add one raw egg yolk and coconut flour/oil, and it turns out great each time :) Thank you so much for a wonderful recipe!

    Hello. I’m doing the Whole30 and am really tired of scrambled eggs already (and I just started!). I’m excited about this option, but figuring at 6 eggs/serving, I’m not sure I could afford it very often (plus, not sure what to do with all those yolks). Is using some whole eggs out of the question? Just wondering. Wasn’t sure how it would affect the recipe.

      I have not tried whole eggs in this particular recipe, but I think as long as less than half the volume was whole eggs, it would taste great. You could always make some ice cream with the yolks…oh, Whole30, yeah, probably not. Ummmm……Caesar salad dressing?

      I have not personally tried using whole eggs in this recipe, but I have in other porridge recipes. I think that as long as the volume of whole eggs was less than half of the egg portion of the recipe, it should taste fine. You could make Caesar salad dressing with the extra yolks? I buy organic free run egg whites in the carton when making this recipe.

    This sounds delicious! I can’t wait to try. Is there anything I can use instead of hemp hearts? Thanks so much!

      sesame seeds? They are not a crucial ingredient, so feel free to leave them out!
