Paleo Porridge

If you’re following a Paleo diet, grains and dairy are off the table, which is why if you like traditional oatmeal, it’s a good thing to have a grain-free and dairy-free option in your recipe repertoire.  This nutritious and delicious porridge from The Paleo 30-Day Challenge combines chopped nuts with mashed bananas, coconut flakes, and cinnamon for a wonderfully comforting oatmeal substitute. This recipe works equally well with the use of a mixture of nuts or just a single variety, so feel free to use what you have on hand.
