Pumpkin Pie Porridge - totally grain-free and packed with protein

When I was a senior in college, I used to do some freelance design work for an owner of a Christmas ornament shop in downtown Atlanta.

On our once weekly meetings, he would share with me his ideas for a dozen or so ornaments and pay me to come up with black and white drawings of his ornament ideas.

During the meeting that followed, he would go over my visual representations of his idea and pick the ones he wanted to see in color, and pay me again for adding color to the drawings that were his ideas in the first palace.

Back then, I used to tell him often that he paid me way too much for my renderings of his ideas. To which he would always reply, (in words very familiar to the now famous, Scott Belsky’s) “we all have ideas, and sometimes they are similar, but, it’s not about just ideas, it’s about making them happen.”

Being on the topic of ideas – especially similar ones, the idea for this grain-free porridge came to me when I was scrolling through Instagram’s popular posts one day. I happened on a porridge made with coconut milk and almond meal and was so intrigued.

Unfortunately, I don’t recall the IG account I saw this on. I started experimenting with the idea of an almond meal porridge and, this past weekend came up with what you see here.

I am an in-the-closet-year-round-pumpkin-connoisseur, but seeing we are in pumpkin mode all over blogdom, I figured I would go all out and make this porridge a pumpkin pie one. This Pumpkin Pie Porridge comes with a delicious dose of pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice in it, and with an egg and Premier Protein’s Vanilla Shake, it also comes with a mega dose of protein!

  1. Shashi, I would LOVE to see some of these drawings! Only you would tell someone he was paying you too much! That’s my sweet Shashi. 🙂 But, yes: it’s totally about making them happen. So important… I thought it was super interesting that you packed this amazing porridge with almond meal. What a fantastically nutrient packed treat! “in-the-closet-year-round-pumpkin-connoisseur” YES! Pumpkin is so good, all year long. I can’t wait to see what else you whip up, my friend! Thank you for sharing this lovely, protein-packed treat! Have a wonderful weekend, my friend. xo

  2. This is such comfort food right here! Can’t wait to try it!

  3. Oooh! A new porridge that I haven’t yet tried, pumpkin pie porridge!

    Now you know how much I love my porridge Shashi, so this one is going to have to go into the “must make” list!

    Pinned! 🙂

  4. I love how minimal the ingredients are! And FULL of protein!

  5. An almond meal porridge sounds so perfect for fall! Now if only the weather would cool down a tad 🙂 haha But I think if I remember correctly you don’t mind the heat!! I wish I was that way!

  6. I always get inspiration from Instagram! I love that you were inspired to make this. It sounds like a perfect breakfast 🙂

  7. So, so true about all having similar ideas… It’s about putting our own person spin on things, which I think you’ve done beautifully with this grain-free pumpkin porridge, Shashi! I don’t know if I could go without my oats in the morning, but this is such an awesome option for people who don’t include grains in their diets! Comfort all the way.

  8. I didn’t know you did freelance work for a Christmas ornament shop! How neat is that!! I bet you had the BEST renderings of Christmas ornaments on the planet. Because this is YOU we are talking about and you are the jack of all traits. And you have creativity in the dang bag! I mean just LOOK at this porridge! Crazy delicious, Shashi! I love that you used a protein shake in here! And I’m totally intrigued with the almond meal! Great way to start the day! Cheers, sweets! xo

  9. Must try some almond porridge! Great power packed breakfast!

  10. I’d love to start my morning with this porridge! So perfect for fall!

  11. Love that quote! And I’m totally a year round pumpkin eater! Yummy stuff and it’s just so versatile. Love what you’ve done here; this would make the best breakfast or snack. Nice touch, too, with the almonds on top 🙂 Have a wonderful week!

  12. In-the-closet-pumpkin-lovers unite! This sounds amazing, Shashi. I love how simple this is to make…and the warming pumpkin pie spices would take this to a whole new level! Come to think of it, I’m not sure I’ve ever had ‘porridge’ before. I love me some oatmeal…but I’m not sure if that qualifies as ‘porridge.’ I’ll have to give this one a shot. It’s so creative! And the flavor…I can almost taste it now! 🙂

  13. Such a comforting dish for Fall! Love it!

  14. It sounds like a great dish to start the day!
