Dreamy grain-free porridge packed with protein. 



  • 1 cup diced sweet potato (158g)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons milk of choice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (or grated from sticks)
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (60g)
  • 2 tablespoons nut butter of choice 
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup, I used Lakanto


  1. Peel and dice your sweet potato. Combine in a small saucepot with water, salt, and cinnamon sticks. Heat over medium heat and cook, covered until fork tender. About 6 minutes. 
  2. In the meantime, toast your pine nuts in a dry skillet over medium heat. Watch carefully and shake occasionally. Once lightly browned, remove from heat and set aside. About 2 minutes. 
  3. Stir in the milk and mash the potato with a whisk while you mix in, without making it completely smooth. Remove the cinnamon sticks. 
  4. Mix in the ground cinnamon, then the nut butter until fully incorporated.
  5. Lastly, mix in the protein powder and simmer, stirring occasionally until desired consistency. About 3 minutes. 

Recipe Notes:

  • To make this AIP use coconut butter instead of nut butter. Use coconut milk or tiger nut milk and collagen for protein. Top with toasted coconut flakes. 
  • To make this nut-free use sunflower seed butter. Top with toasted coconut flakes.
