Paleo “Oatmeal”

grain-free hot breakfast

If you’re like me, you miss having your “healthy” bowl of oatmeal in the morning. Well, I have good news for you, this Paleo Oatmeal is just as comforting and a better low-carb alternative to the insulin spiking bowl of sugar you used to eat. Here is a Mark’s Daily Apple article about oatmeal if you are looking for a comprehensive read.

I made my Paleo Oatmeal in a mason jar. It only can fit a half batch, but I use my blender all the time and love that I can blend everything right in the jar. I also use my blender for Make-Ahead Smoothies. Seriously, I could probably write an entire cookbook for this blender. It doesn’t have the power of a Vita-Mix, but I’m obsessed with mason jars and hate doing dishes.

Blender love letter aside, you can make this recipe in any blender😊

Tips & Tricks

  • If you don’t have gelatin or coconut butter, just heat up 2 cups of unsweetened coconut milk or another nut milk.
  • You can half this recipe for a single serving, but why cook once and only eat once. This can be reheated or eaten cold as a parfait
  • Try using your favorite types of nuts
  • If you want your Paleo oatmeal a little sweeter, add a drizzle of maple syrup (just know you are adding sugar).
  • Buy nuts raw and store them in the freezer
