I am always on the hunt for great recipes to share with our patients. Dr. McCallen’s daughter graciously shared her latest creation with me – breakfast porridge.

If you are missing a warm hot cereal for breakfast, this porridge recipe will do just the trick!


½ C almond flour

½ C water

1 tbsp ground flaxseed

1 tsp coconut palm sugar (or to taste)

1 egg

Vanilla bean paste (to taste)

Cinnamon (to taste)

  1. Crack egg into a heat proof bowl and beat to mix well. Set aside.
  2. Mix almond flour, flaxseed and water in saucepan. Add more water if too thick. Add coconut palm sugar and stir.
  3. Turn on the heat to the pan to medium-low. Heat the mixture, stirring often. As it starts to bubble turn to low.
  4. Add a ladle full of the hot almond mixture to the egg and stir well. Add another ladle. Stir continuously as you add the rest of the almond mixture to the egg.
  5. Turn off the heat and add a dash of vanilla and cinnamon.
  6. Serve as is or top with shredded coconut, blueberries, goji berries, cacao nibs, sunflower seeds, etc.
