Oatless Oatmeal

paleo oatless oatmealUnless you like eating omelets every morning, breakfasts can be a challenge on the Paleo diet. Personally, I find it boring to eat the same things all of the time so I try to come up with tasty alternatives that I can either whip up in a hurry or make ahead so it is readily on hand for busy mornings. This Oatless Oatmeal recipe is one that I make up on the weekend and save a dish or two to enjoy for breakfast later in the week. It only takes a few minutes to make so I could just as easily make it the day I want to have it, but I always do the bulk of my cooking on the weekend so I have more free-time on work days.

I call it Oatless Oatmeal because it is a very healthy, high protein, low carb hot cereal-like breakfast. Great for those chilly mornings! It is totally Paleo but is also great for anyone on a gluten-free or low carb diet too.

Paleo Oatless Oatmeal

(3-4 servings)


1/4 c walnut or pecan meal

1/4 c flax meal

1/4 c mixed seeds and fruitĀ  (I used sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, goji berries and currants)

1/4 c shredded coconut

1 c almond milk or whole milk if you eat dairy

3 eggs

Optional: 1/2 tsp cinnamon


Whisk the eggs into the milk. Place all dry ingredients into a saucepan. Stir in the milk/egg mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened to oatmeal consistency. Spoon into dishes and top with blueberries or strawberries. Optional: drizzle with a little honey or maple syrup if you like it a bit sweet.

  1. I tried this and the consistency was right but there was really no flavor even with blueberries. I think I will try again with a banana along with some blueberries and it will be perfect. Thanks for the recipe!!

  2. Just made this recipe…I LOVE this!
    I put fresh chopped strawberries with some raw sunflower seeds as well as a bit of agave.
    Works for me…thanks you!
