Apple (un) Oatmeal. {Paleo Oatmeal}

Paleo Oatmeal

Today I started my second Whole30, so in celebration (woohoo!) I'm bringing back one of my stand-by grain-free breakfasts.  I hope you love it as much as I do, because this Paleo Oatmeal makes a regular appearance in my mornings!

[Originally written 11/7/12] One of my favorite breakfasts has always (well, maybe not always) been a bowl of oatmeal with a hot cup of coffee.  But the paleo diet says 'NAY!' to oatmeal.  Which (((sob))).  Until a few days ago when I was testing a dessert recipe that went all kinds of wrong.  Well, wrong with respect to what I was going for, but so VERY right as a delicious oatmeal replacement!


Apple (un)Oatmeal Ingredients:

  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil or butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon real vanilla extract (omit if you're doing a Whole30)
  • 1 medium/small apple, small diced
  • 1 banana, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • pinch of salt
  • optional garnishes: additional nuts, grated coconut, fresh fruit, raisins, dried cranberries, fresh whipped cream

Apple (un)Oatmeal Directions:

  1. Heat coconut oil in a small saucepan or frying pan.  Add cinnamon and vanilla, mix well.
  2. Stir in banana and apple and cook over medium/low heat for 5-10 minutes, stirring once or twice, until bananas liquefy and apple is softened.
  3. Stir in slivered almonds and add salt (unless you used salted butter, then you can skip this step).
  4. Top with your choice of garnishes and enjoy!
