PIN No Oats Paleo Oatmeal
NO OATS oatmeal is a thing that exists on this earth?
I’m here to tell you YES. Yes, keto oatmeal RLY RLY does.
Who would have thought you could grind up nuts and pumpkin seeds, mix it up with some almond milk and let it chill right out in fridge, and it would transform into thick “oatmeal?”
You learn something new EVERY day. <–Cliché, but TRUE.
I won’t lie to you, I love me some “real” oatmeal. Blueberry oatmeal with Cheesecake swirl or cookie dough overnight oats are a REAL regular, on rep-EAT kinda meal over here. So, when I saw Julia’s recipe for paleo oatmeal in her new cookbook “Paleo Power Bowls,” I was INTRIGUED. How would it stack up to my oat obsession WITHOUT actual oats?
My internet friends, there was NO disappointment had when morning me rolled out of bed and poured up the thickest bowl of healthy-fat-loaded grain free oatmeal, threw on some strawbs and kiwi and just MOWED DOWN.
The combination of earthy walnuts and pumpkin seeds with maple syrup sweetness and swirls of vanilla is just so addictive and downright perfect my mouth could not even believe it. I added a heavy hand of toasted, crispy coconut on top, and some extra walnuts for a crunch, and it was a VERY good idea that you should be trying to.
Hearty? CHECK. Filling? YEP. Anti-inflammatory, healthy goodness? OH YEAH BABY.
Liiike, no oats oatmeal yo. You can eat it hot. You can eat it cold. You can dress it up or you can dress it down. However, you like to eat it, it’s HERE FOR YOU.
You can even make it the night before so morning you does not even have to THINK ABOUT what to eat for breakfast. Mornings are hard enough folks, food should be EASY.
Is oatmeal paleo?
If you’re not familiar with the paleo diet, you might be wondering why rolled oats aren’t paleo, since they’re a wholesome, real food. BUT, grains are not considered paleo, and can also lead to inflammation if you’re sensitive to grains, therefore a bowl of regular oats doesn’t fit!
That is where Julia’s book comes in! You’re probably familiar with her blog “The Roasted Root” and now she has this BEAUTIFUL cookbook filled with 100 easy, nutrient-dense and anti-inflammatory meals!
I personally have never done an elimination diet (since I have a tendency to lean towards food restriction, it would not be a healthy thing for me to do!) but have done one for Mr. FFF and it helped his digestive issues SO much to learn what was causing inflammation in his body from the food he was eating. If you’re doing this, or thinking about doing this, this cookbook is FOR YOU.
And really, even if you’re not, the recipes are still DANG GOOD.
They even make the oatmeal queen LOVE oatmeal-less oatmeal which is really QUITE the feat.
Seriously. Try it for yourself.
Something tells me you might just be doing the morning nut and seed salsa right along with me.
