Ingredients

  • 1 1 egg, beateneggs, beaten
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp (6 g) coconut flour
  • 1 pinch 1 pinch (0.2 g) ground psyllium husk powder
  • 1 pinch 1 pinch salt
  • 1 oz. 30 g butter or coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp 4 tbsp coconut cream

Instructions

Instructions are for 1 serving. Please modify as needed.

  1. In a small bowl, combine the egg, coconut flour, psyllium husk powder and salt.
  2. Over low heat, melt the butter and coconut cream. Slowly whisk in the egg mixture, combining until you achieve a creamy, thick texture.
  3. Serve with coconut milk or cream. Top your porridge with a few fresh or frozen berries and enjoy!

Tips

Serve together with two hard-boiled eggs to add some more protein.

Tip!

If you find yourself with leftover coconut milk, put some into your next smoothie. It will thicken it up a bit and make it richer and more filling.

This is a breakfast idea from Fanny Lindkvist, who runs a popular Swedish blog and the Instagram account LessCarbs.

    So how much oats does one add to this recipe and is the egg beaten first?

    I'll be trying this out tomorrow - thanks :)
  3. Scooze
    Yes, beat the egg. The recipe does not call for oats or any other grains. The coconut flour will thicken it.
  4. Scooze
    Just tried it - excellent! It tasted shockingly like what we call in the US cream of wheat. Very filling, too.
  5. Marina
    Wow, really tasty. The coconut cream made it taste so sweet that I put in coconut oil, too -- just to make sure the porridge wouldn't set off any sweet cravings :)

    how about some shredded unsweetened
    Coconut?

    Coconut oil lowers my blood sugar (good)

    I scramble eggs in 2 tablespoons butter and 1 to 2 tablespoons
    Coconut oil

    I either cook with coconut oil or have a butter coconut mix with coffee and night

    I keep ketone salts on hand for lunch time drinks or if I want/need to lower blood sugar and increase ketones. I aim for 60 to 80 mg/dl (4-4.4 MM). Blood sugar
    And 3 MM ketones

    This doesn't seem like nearly enough to serve 4. It was pretty good, any suggestions to cover up the eggey flavor a little more?

    I didn't find it tasted eggy....but is it really 4 servings? 2 max I'd say.
    I added some water to mine as it thickened up pretty fast, and I like my cream of wheat creamy.

    Brett, I'd check the source of my eggs. Are they from hens you know? Backyard chickens, allowed to run free or in "tractors" produce a truly superior product with 0 guilt. Do you really want to be responsible for a beautiful bird having her beak cut off, and being forced to live in a 1x1 foot cage? I refuse to even eat store-bought eggs anymore, (especially the ones from that company who was denied organic status at first, but the received it, even though the hens were cooped up in a concrete warehouse and denied access to fresh air outside). So if you have a back yard, look to getting a couple girls of your own. They are easier to care for than cats, and give you delicious eggs instead of hairballs! (I love my cats, don't get me wrong, but the lazy buggers won't even keep mice away!)

    Does this really serve 4? I would have thought 1.
  11. DG
    What is the substitute for coconut flour as it is not easily available?
  12. Peter Biörck Team Diet Doctor
    Hi!

    Try with almond meal/flour. I think it could work!

  13. Diane
    What are these seed husks is it necessary to have it in with being just a pinch. I can not find these in the UK :(

    Hi Brett, I found it eggy too which is a putoff for me because I hate eggs for breakfast so I was hoping this recipe would help me out but it hasn't. I tried adding one teaspoon of vanilla essence and one dessert spoon of dessicated coconut, a sprinkle of almond meal and some cream...it almost disguised the egg flavour.

    Hi, I have just eaten this porridge. Wow, wow, wow. It's great. But 4 people no way
  16. Julia
    I thought this was great, but I don't see how that is a serving of 4, I ate the whole bowl.
  17. Petra
    I think it is for 1 serving. I had it with cinnamon powder
    and coconut flakes on top. So good!
  18. Michelle
    Does the egg get fully cooked in 10 min?
  19. Jones
    I'm with Diane - I see these "psyllium husks" in several recipes but I definitely can't find them locally. Is it for taste? Texture? How essential are they?
    Replies: #21, #26
  20. Colleen Hamm
    I heard that flax meal or flax seed could be a sub for Psyllium husks, not sure if thats right. Has anyone tried it?
  21. Tabitha
    Jones - are you in the UK? I've found it in health food shops (often sold by weight from big jars) and it's available to order from various sites too (lots of options on Amazon). Holland and Barrett sell it in tubs as a digestive aid but at an incredibly inflated price! It acts as a thickener and is a carb-free source of fibre.
    Replies: #22, #44
  22. Jones
    Thanks for the explanation, Tabitha! I'm in Canada (and even worse, a small town).

    I tried this and it was delicious. I added shredded unsweetened coconut which I'm sure ups the carb count, but I found the recipe alone makes such a tiny portion!

  23. Renie
    Psyllium and flax do the same but the psyllium has no taste so is preferred. Both high source of fibre??
  24. Mary H
    I would guess this has to be 1 serving...2 tops. I entered the recipe into myfitnesspal and the entire recipe has 433 cal, 42g fat, 8 g protein, 6g carb, 3g fiber.

    For those that can't find psyllium husks - this is the same ingredient in metamucil found in the pharmacy. Just be sure to purchase the unflavored option.

    A secondary option is purchasing on Amazon.com.

    What is coconut cream?

    Serves only 1. Tried to double check the original recipe but it's not in English and I couldn't find it. Oh well... Pretty confident it was just one serve.
  28. Suze
    This recipe has to serve four for it to meet the low carb standards. The total of this whole recipes is: Calories 470 , Fat 36.5 , Carbs 27.3, Protein 11.9.
    So four serves is 6.8g Carbs. I really don't understand why it is listed as Low Strict Carb breakfast. Has the Diet Doctor people really looked at this before posting.

    Mary H, I am not sure why our FitnessPal results are so different. The whole recipe will say 1 serving but then you have to enter actually how many servings it is designed for. Confused.

  29. Jackie
    Hi, just like to know, has anybody made this coconut porridge the night before?
  30. Isobel
    You'll find psyllium husk in health food shops in the UK. Comes in a big jar.
  31. Julilly
    After cooking, is this any good to freeze for later?
  32. Munchkin
    Psyllium husks at a health food shop like Holland and Barrett (uk) can set you back almost £10! You can buy whole or milled p. Husks at most indian/pakistani supermarkets- also known as isophgol powder. I bought some yesterday for under £5! I'm also bored of eating chia pudding every morning- meat/eggs don't do it for me so early! Any other alternatives on strict low carb please guys? I've just started out, ideas appreciated since I'm also suffering constipation TMI
  33. Natty
    ok someone needs to double check if this is really 4 servings..... I made it, it was amazing (like cream of wheat) type of texture and was enough for just ONE person. Come on!!! You can't feed 3 other ppl with this and I want accurate carbs etc.... please! Diet Doctor needs to triple check these recipes as they could harm ppl.
  34. Jackie
    Like others have said, this is one serving, not 4. As a result the amount of carbs is closer to 7 or 8g per serving. I think the stats on this are misleading. However, it tastes OK, better than the other "porridge" on here, and at 7/8g carbs its still quite low (but maybe not for those keeping carbs under 20g).

    I entered the exact recipe info into the Calorie Count Recipe Calculator, and this is the nutrition info that it calculated for 1 serving. So the Net Carbs should be 2.4
    I hope this is correct, because it sounds delicious!!

    Hi Jackie!

    You are absolutely right. This is ONE serving and we apologize for the mistake in serving size. It's been corrected now. We also did a new calculation regarding the nutrients so they are accurate.
    Thanks to everyone who has posted and made us aware of this!

    Physillium husks can be brought from vitamin shoppe

    I make coconut porridge each morning this way:

    2tbs ground almonds
    2tbs coconut oil
    2tbs double cream

    Heat gently until thickened.
    Serve with cinnamon and a drizzle of honey.

    This has kept me pain-free from osteo-arthritis and polymyalgia (I am in a wheelchair) for the last 16 months, and yesterday I rode a bike for the first time in over 20 years!

    Pysillium Seed Powder available in Holland & Barrett Stores.. around £6.50 but a bag lasts a while.

    What are these seed husks is it necessary to have it in with being just a pinch. I can not find these in the UK :(

  42. Max
    I found it on Ebay, I bought a 1K bag for £12.99 which will last for ages
  43. Louise
    I made this, and found it incredibly eggy tasting.. I was a bit disappointed to be honest. I think I will try this with more coconut flour and no egg, plus a few slithered almonds, coconut flakes and cinnamon...
  44. Anna
    I love this porridge. Made it for the fourth time this morning! I love anything creamy and do a lot of chia seed pudding/low carb granola/coconut flour pancakes with yoghurt and berries type breakfasts as I can't face eggs more than once or twice a week, but this has an egg without tasting too eggy! The first time I made it, it did come out a bit like sweet scrambled egg, but I've found if you cook it on a really low heat and keep stirring it, you avoid that. Like making custard.

    I also don't have psyllium husks - I just add a sprinkle of ground flax and/or chia seeds, but I'm not sure it really needs it anyway.

    Thank you so much for the recipe - it's definitely going to become one of my staples!

  45. Hilary
    just made this and it was really nice with the berries and a drizzle of cream on top. will be making it again. i get my psyllium husk powder from eBay or amazon. same with any other ingredients i can't find in the shops locally.
  46. Rebecca Gosling
    Holland and Barrett do it. It's called regucol. It's on the penny sale at the moment too ?
  47. Terri
    Good morning, i just made the porridge and it is outstanding. I have been on Keto diet for about a week and am doing well on it. I love to cook and have been having fun making new tasty dishes. For the porridge I found Psyllium Whole Husk, in grainy form. It is labeled as a colon cleanser and I found it at my local Kroegers. Is this the same as the recipe ingredient. I am thinking it is not as fine as powder, but all the same. Thank you for all the info.
