{ N'Oatmeal }

I know of a few Paleo peeps {including myself} who are really, really missing their oatmeal in the mornings. Sometimes you just need variety in your life, and eggs can get old after a while. I wanted something fast and satisfying that will get me through the day. Yesterday I was browsing some cookbooks and found a perfect paleo oatmeal, and decided to make a few changes of my own. I have tried multiple different ones, and this one is by far the best tasting. It's not thick and clumpy like regular oatmeal, but more of a creamy hot porridge like cream of wheat {we called it mush growing up}. This recipe will make enough for 2-3 breakfasts or 2-3 servings, it's packed with protein and lots of fiber, and you can quickly heat up the leftovers {BONUS!}. I love it. It’s perfection. And I can’t wait to experiment with different variations. This would be REALLY good with fresh sliced peaches and coconut milk drizzled on top. For now, enjoy this simple version!

adapted from Mark's Daily Apple 

1/2 cup of pecans 
1/2 cup of almonds 
2 tablespoons flax seed
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 pinch of ground nutmeg 
1 tablespoon almond butter 
1 banana, mashed 
3 whole eggs 
1/3 cup coconut milk or almond milk 
splash of pure vanilla 
1 handful fresh berries or fruit 

1. Add pecans, almonds, flax seed and spices to a food processor and pulse it down to a course grain/flour type of mix, making sure to stop before it’s totally ground into a powder. Set aside.

2. In a medium saucepan, whisk together eggs, coconut milk and vanilla until the consistency thickens a little bit into a loose custard. Thoroughly blend together the mashed banana and almond butter and add it to the custard, mixing well. Stir in the nut mixture. Heat over medium heat, stirring until the n'oatmeal reaches your desired consistency; this should only take a few minutes.

3. Sprinkle with some banana slices, berries, or whatever you would like on top. Also, add more milk if you want--I ALWAYS do to this in out bit, but I prefer it on the less thick side. Enjoy!

Did you try this recipe?? What variations did you top it with??
