Paleo Oatmeal is kind of an oxymoron, I know.
But there is something about this paleo craze that has got my wheels turning. I mentioned a few weeks ago in my Grain-free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread post that I was going to start experimenting with some more paleo recipes. This isn’t because I am going paleo but because I love the challenge of creating foods that traditionally aren’t paleo, and giving it that paleo twist.
Oatmeal is basically the definition of not paleo considering it is a grain. But, in my opinion, anyone following the paleo diet must miss oatmeal in some form. The traditional hearty bowl of oatmeal topped with your favorite fruit, nuts & toppings is a standard breakfast item. It is so versatile, so delicious and filled with good-for-you ingredients.
When I first started researching Paleo-friendly oatmeal recipes, many used eggs in them and they were either microwaved or scrambled of sorts to get that fluffy consistency.
I am not one to put eggs in my oatmeal, so I wasn’t crazy about putting eggs in my PaleOatmeal either. I wanted this to be a plant based recipe with little to no prep or cooking involved. Less is more in my opinion.
This Paleo Oatmeal recipe uses only 7 easy ingredients and it is ready in just 5 minutes! So fast, it is crazy.
There is no stove involved, no scrambling and you only dirty up your NutriBullet or blender. You will only need a ripe banana, your favorite nut milk, chia seeds, coconut oil, almond flour, unsweetened coconut flakes & cinnamon (all the cinnamon, please).

Experimenting with paleo recipes has seriously been a little too much fun. These Paleo Carrot Cake Pancakes, Paleo & Nut Free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread & No Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownie Bars are a few of my personal fav recipes.
For anyone in the NYC area, you should absolutely check out Hu Kitchen. It is my main inspo for all things paleo these days!
