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!
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 🙁 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 cow 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 🙂

*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.
