Grain Free “Oatmeal” – Hot Cereal for the Primal Eater

grain free oatmeal


Grain Free “Oatmeal” – an oxymoron that quenches cravings. Finally, hot cereal for the primal eater.

I follow a primal diet, which means I don’t eat grains, legumes or refined sugars… but I still serve grains to my kids if they are properly prepared. Some mornings when I am serving up soaked oatmeal to my kids for breakfast I miss eating grains. Something about that steaming bowl of sweet comfort food reminds me of being a kid…

I don’t eat oatmeal since I quit eating grains, but I decided to see if I could come up with a replacement and it was actually pretty easy. Check it out.

Grain Free “Oatmeal”

4 TBSP of your favorite nut or seed butter (I used homemade pumpkin seed coconut butter, but if I didn’t use that, then I would use nut butter I get here)

1/2 cup coconut milk (paleo option) or raw milk (which is what I use)

Dash of sea salt

Put in a pan on medium low heat and stir until it warms and thickens. At this point you could add your favorite sweetener (honey, maple syrup, stevia or coconut sugar), but I ate mine plain. It was a lovely porridge consistency and definitely hit the spot I was craving!

What is your favorite way to enjoy hot cereal?
