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.

  1. This is amazing!! What a fun recipe! I follow you on IG and NEEDED to get this recipe! I love that it’s Paleo AND vegan. I hear ya, I’m not about putting eggs in my oats. This looks perfect! Thanks!
    Xoxo Cailee!

  2. As the queen of oats I didn’t know you’d be a go-to source for paleo recipes! I’m so excited to try this and will be making it asap!

    1. Yes!! I am paleo recipe obsessed. Just for more the breakfasts, desserts and snacks. I love experimenting with new ways of eating! I don’t ever go with a title but just tabble in a bit of everything. You should try the banana bread I posted! SO yummy! xx

  3. LOVE paleoatmeal! Haven’t tried it with almond flour yet but will now 🙂 Please keep the paleo recipes coming! I have had to experiment with less grains/legumes in the past year to see if I can heal some digestive issues and it seems to be helping so I’m always on the lookout for more paleo recipes and have loved yours. Just made the paleo chocolate chip banana bread – my husband and I fight over it 🙂

  4. This is such a twist on the normal paleoatmeal I’ve seen! Usually the ones I see use coconut flour. I could never go paleo because I don’t eat meat (obvs) but uhmmm OATS and HUMMUS. The greatest things in life.

  5. This is so creative!! I love how you incorporated healthy fats and fiber. I am going to have to try this. Thanks for sharing!!
