Banana Coconut Porridge

Remember: Coconut flour should be a 'treat' during elimination phase.

There are a number of coconut porridge recipes around, however I have many of them too heavy or rich, so came up with something a bit lighter.

Ingredients (serves 2)
½ cup of coconut flour
1 banana
1 - 1 1/2 cups water
½ tsp cinnamon

Get creative!

Once you have re-introduced:
Cacoa nibs
Greek Yoghurt
Chopped nuts

Cooking Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients into a saucepan. Start with 1 cup of water – If too thick add more until you have the consistency you like.
  2. Using a hand blender, whizz until a smooth paste is formed (if the banana is quite ripe, you can just mash and mix with a fork).
  3. Place saucepan on stove over a moderate heat, stir and and heat until piping hot.
  4. Serve and top with your favourite topping.

Cinnamon Grapefruit

Prep Time

Less than 5 mins


1 Ruby red grapefruit


Walnuts (or pecan nuts), roughly chopped into smaller pieces**


  1. Cut the grapefruit in half. 

  2. Cut around the edge of the grapefruit and make segments (if you have one of those groovy grapefruit knives, it makes this job heaps easier) [amazon link ...]

  3. Place both halves on a baking tray

  4. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nuts (if having)

  5. Pop under the grill for 5 mins until nuts are starting to toast/brown

  6. Enjoy!


** If you are on AIP elimination or stage 1 - eliminate the nuts (you can try introduce these at Stage 2)

I have put this under breakfast - I have however been known to have this as a snack and dessert!
