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😊
This healthy breakfast will have you forgetting all about oatmeal. Plus it can be eaten hot or cold!
dairy-free, grain-free, low-carb, paleo
4cupwater + a splash
2teaspoongelatinoptional, but highly recommended
Bring 4 cups water to a boil.
Meanwhile, bloom gelatin in your blender (or jar) with a splash of cold water.
Add hot water, coconut butter, salt, nuts, vanilla, and cinnamon.
Blend until nuts are in small pieces.
Add coconut and chia seeds to the blender, pulse just to mix
Pour out half the mixture into a bowl and top with berries
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
