What You Need

Here is what you will need for this peanut porridge recipe!

  • Raw peanuts: Make sure to use raw peanuts
  • Coconut milk: I use freshly squeezed coconut milk but you can use canned coconut milk. Coconut milk is not a must, you can use cows milk or any plant based milk of your choice.
  • Plain flour (not in the photo): Plain flour helps to thicken the porridge. I sometimes use oats but the flour make the porridge smoother.
  • Sugar and condensed milk: To sweeten the porridge. You can use one or both.
  • Salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla: Essential flavour.

How To Make Peanut Porridge

Minus making your own coconut milk, in just a few steps and your peanut porridge is ready.

Blend the peanut, flour and the coconut milk together until smooth. When using other milk, I would blend the peanut and flour with water and add the milk later.

Add this blended peanut to boiling water and once the porridge thicken add the spices and sweeten.

Variations

Instead of using plain flour like I did here you can use oatmeal. This help to thicken the porridge. Even though oats is healthier the flour makes the porridge smoother.

To make the peanut porridge vegan all you have to do is use a vegan condensed milk as the sweetener.

    I made the peanut & oatmeal porridge. I sure do enjoyed it!

    The real traditional thickener for peanut porridge is grated green plantain. I image that oats would be nice too as a substitute but nothing beats the taste of green plantain in peanut porridge. That is what the street vendors use.
