Paleo Grits. (Gluten/Grain/Dairy Free).

Paleo Grits. (Gluten/Grain/Dairy Free).

Grits is traditionally a southern breakfast delicacy made from ground corn. In this recipe I've swapped out the corn with cauliflower for a fun low carb and much healthier spin! This recipe is full of flavor- its perfect for both breakfast or dinner alike !! Feel free to add cheese (dairy or nondairy) or heavy cream!

Paleo Grits


  • 3 Cups "Riced" Cauliflower
  • 3/4 Cup Almond Flour
  • 3 Cups Chicken broth
  • 2 1/2 Tablespoon Starch (Potato, Tapioca or Arrowroot)
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter (dairy or nondairy)
  • 1/2 tsp powdered garlic (optional)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. Blend a small head of cauliflower in a blender or food processor until it has a rice like consistency.
  2. Over medium heat bring the "riced" cauliflower, almond flour, chicken broth, starch and butter to a boil in a medium saucepan until thick.
  3. Add garlic, salt and pepper to taste

    Running cauliflower through the grating blade in a food processor worked really well for me. Grits are something I really missed, too. Thanks!

    We just use buckwheat flour. Heat the water – about a cup, with buckwheat flour already stirred in (about 1/8 cup). Butter to taste. Adjust amounts of water/buckwheat to your desired thick/thinness. Constantly stir, as it thickens quickly once the water starts to simmer. Turn off heat, add shredded cheese of choice, sea salt, and other seasonings as desired – we like garlic and hot sauce. Buckwheat is not a grain – it is a forage plant seed related to rhubarb, and medicinally is helpful with blood glucose/diabetes. So quick and easy.

    I have loved everything from your site and am excited, yet terrified, to try this. I am from the deep south and have an abiding love for grits. Hope this is close to the real thing.

    How many servings does this make? Looks real good! I’m kinda tired of having sweet breakfasts and when I saw this on my ig I thought to myself I have to have this for breakfast tomorrow.

    Hi, Brittany. I’m curious about your egg intolerance. It seems that you were able to tolerate them and now you cannot. I had been told that I should avoid eggs and lately my issues seems to have gotten much worse when I have eggs. I am also on Armour and wonder if that has made it get worse? It is so hard to be GF/DF and EF!!!

    Not sure I’d want this for breakfast but I think I’ll add some Cajun seasoning and shrimp and have it for dinner. Sounds yummy!

Thank you!
