No Oats Oatmeal {Paleo}

Last Updated on

This Paleo, grain free, and gluten free no oats oatmeal tastes so much like traditional oatmeal it will knock you socks off!!



I am so excited to share this recipe with you today because it is amazing how much this tastes like real oatmeal!

The story:

I had made my family some gluten free oatmeal but didn’t make any for myself because oats upset my stomach – and it made me o-so-sad that everyone was having oatmeal except me πŸ™ So I started digging around my pantry thinking that surely there was something I could use to make a grain free oatmeal that tasted similar.

I had made some coconut based oatmeals in the past and knew I didn’t want to go that direction. While they were good, I didn’t think they tasted much like the traditional oats I was used to and the coconut flavor was too strong. Then, while I was rummaging through my pantry I ran across a huge bag of pecans and decided to trying using those as an oat substitute because of their mild, slightly sweet, and nutty flavor and holy cowΒ it worked!!!!

I added maple syrup and cinnamon to my paleo oatmeal just like I did to the rest of the family’s oats. Then I took a bite of each one and I couldn’t believe how similar they tasted!!! So not only did this taste unbelievably like traditional oatmeal, but it is high in protein, quick, and easy to make – perfect for busy mornings πŸ™‚

Pin for later:

*Note- I used my Nutribullet to blend this recipe, which needs a fair amount of liquid to blend. Besides from the health benefits, I also added the chia and flax seeds to add texture and help thicken up the oatmeal after blending.

    Extremely creative – looking forward to trying it.

    Do you have a recipe for GF bread, with few ingredients, vegan and without zantham gum. Missing bread v much and although I have experimented it is still hit and miss.

    Many thanks for sharing so much.


    • No, but I probably should have. I’ll soak them next time and see how it turns out, but I imagine it would still work just fine πŸ™‚

    You read my mind. The days are getting a little cooler. I don’t miss pie dough or bread, but I miss oatmeal. Definitely will make this. :>) Thanks!
