Paleo Nutmeal (oatmeal)(nut-free option)

My grain-free, protein rich version of a traditional comforting breakfast: Paleo Nutmeal

Oatmeal brings me tons of childhood memories. Growing up I was an extremely picky eater, there were about 5 things I could tolerate, but they needed to be spaced out with at least a week in between. Needless to say, meal times were always a torture. There were only three things that I looked forward to regularly: macaroni and cheese, flan, and oatmeal. Since then oatmeal has been sort of a comfort food for me and somehow my oldest daughter now feels the same way about it. Luckily for me, she eats most anything I put on her plate, but Paleo Nutmeal is something she always looks forward to.

If you don’t like cashews or you do not want to use a blender you can replace the cashews, water and dates for 1 1/4 cup of sweetened almond milk, Here is my recipe for it.

For a NUT-FREE version replace the cashew nuts and water for 1 1/4 cup of coconut milk.

For other sweet breakfast treats try my banana scramble, cream of chocolate or crispy paleo waffles

Paleo Breakfast Porridge

Ingredients:

1 large egg
1 tbsp of coconut flour
1 tbsp of  coconut oil
1 cup of water
1/4 cup of cashew or macadamia nuts
3-4 pitted dates or sweetener or choice
1/4 tsp of vanilla extract
a pinch of salt
1 tbsp of hemp seeds (optional)
Optional toppings: raisins, cinnamon, shredded coconut, lucuma powder, sliced bananas, chopped nuts, berries

 

Preparation:

  • Using a blender combine all the ingredients together, except the hemp seeds.Blend until the nuts are finely ground.
  • Pour the mixture in small saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  • When most of the  liquid is absorbed, remove from heat, mix in the hemp seeds and desired toppings, and serve. You may add more water or almond milk if the consistency is too dry.

  1. Thank you Edible Harmony………Oatmeal too was a sincere favorite of mine until I progressed to a paleo diet – that of which brought more energy then I could consume in a gallon of oats (ha). I look forward to trying your grain free replacement! At this point it sounds good even for dinner….

  2. Love your recipes!! Just wondering if you could recommend a substitute for date paste (my mother is diabetic) other than just omitting it from the recipes. Thanks!

    1. I would probably use raw stevia instead, everything that I have read about it points out to be the healthiest low glycemic sweetener in the market, but I am a little bit of a food purist and I prefer to stick to natural, unaltered food ingredients that I can make myselt. I have read that it could upset some people’s stomach though Also look into yacon syrup, it’s super healthy but a bit “pricey”. This recipe would also work well with Lucuma powder, a mild sweetener packed with lots of nutrients

  3. I made the porridge this morning for breakfast before going to the gym and I have to say that I was skeptical to use the egg, I do not like eggs, but I went ahead and followed the recipe. I did not use the date paste, hemp seed, vanilla or salt; added chia seed instead, shreded coconut and ground flax seed. Oh my, what a delicious, healthy, full filing and easy to make breakfast. I could not have done 45 minutes of compound training plus a 3 miles run without it. I still have one egg left and I am using it tomorrow on my porridge. I called my neighbor to ask if her chickens have been producing lately and she said “I have a dozen”; yeahhh! Thank you for the awesome recipe!!!!

  4. I am a new vegan (3 months now). I also am addicted to oatmeal and load it up with fresh fruits. I am interested in trying this but want to know if I could just leave out the egg or is there a substitute for it? Thanks!
