Are you looking for quick and easy keto breakfast recipes that don’t involve bacon or eggs?
Do you love a warming breakfast like oatmeal, something filling and creamy that will keep you energized throughout the morning?
I’ve got you covered! Today’s recipe for Vegan Keto Breakfast Porridge from my new book ‘Keto in 15 Minuten’ is my low carb version of oatmeal porridge. It’s super easy to make and great for meal prepping if you like to prepare breakfast for several days at once.
I love to lightly heat it on the stove with some natural almond or coconut milk. For extra flavor and protein, I add a few spoonfuls of this vegan keto chocolate protein powder or vanilla protein powder (sweetened with stevia) to the porridge. It gives it an amazing flavor and it’s a great way to add some extra protein to your breakfast too – especially if you like to exercise in the morning or start your day with a walk. The combination of the healthy fats from the MCT oil and the amino acids from the protein powder will help to keep you satisfied until lunchtime and beat sugar cravings.
As soon as the porridge is lightly heated, I pour it in a bowl, add some frozen berries on top and leave them to thaw for a minute or two… Then I garnish it with a few spoonfuls of our ALL GOOD keto granola for a crunchy topping (cinnamon, peanut or chocolate hazelnut). The granola is made with hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, coconut and more goodness. It’s also grain free, sugar free, high in fiber, packed with plant-based protein and a great source of anti-inflammatory omega 3 fats.
Sweet and sour, smooth and crunchy, nothing beats a good old keto breakfast porridge to fuel you through the day!

Vegan Keto Breakfast Porridge | Low Carb, High Protein (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Sugar Free)
- Mix the almond milk with the chia seeds in a bowl or glass jar. Stir well, leave to sit for a minute, stir again and repeat this process until the chia seeds start to thicken.
- Place in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight so the chia seeds can absorb the milk and turn into a creamy pudding.
- In the morning, pour the chia seed pudding into a small cooking pot or saucepan. Add the hemp seeds, protein powder, MCT oil (or melted extra virgin coconut oil), sea salt and other flavorings of your choice. Stir well and slightly heat the porridge until warm but not boiling (to preserve the precious nutrients).
- Garnish with crunchy toppings of your choice such as our ALL GOOD keto granola or chopped nuts, unsweetened coconut flakes… I love adding a small handful of fresh or frozen berries too.
JULIE’S TIPS & TRICKS:
- You could also mix all the ingredients (except for the toppings) together (almond milk, chia seeds, hemp seeds etc.) and leave everything to thicken in the fridge overnight. In the morning you can simply heat the porridge with a little extra almond milk and add the toppings right before serving. Breakfast ready in 2 minutes!
- For meal prepping: make several serving sizes of this porridge and store them in separate glass jars in the refrigerator. You can have the porridge chilled or at room temperature too, although I prefer it warm.
- If you love nut butter, feel free to add a spoonful of almond or hazelnut butter for an extra creamy and filling porridge ;-)
- Or for a luxurious ‘Sunday brunch’ version, add some chopped dark chocolate. There are several sugar free ‘keto proof’ chocolate brands on the market. I love really intense dark chocolate with 92% or even 99% cacao.
