NO-Oat Oatmeal from Jess

I use to eat oatmeal ALL the time! It was my favorite "healthy" breakfast and was so sad to give it up once I started eating more Paleo. My mom forwarded me this recipe and it's AWESOME! If you haven't tried it yet, give it a whirl! Enjoy!!

"Paleo No-Oat Oatmeal"
1 small handful of walnuts
1 small handful of pecans
2 tablespoons ground flax seed
1/2 – 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 pinch of ground nutmeg
1 pinch ground ginger
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 banana, mashed
3 eggs
1/4 cup unsweetened so-delicious coconut milk (add more if you prefer it a little runny)
2 teaspoons pumpkin seeds
1 handful of goji berries or fresh berries

Add walnuts, pecans, flax seed and spices to a food processor/blender and pulse it down to a course grain, making sure to stop before it’s totally ground into a powder. Set aside.

Whisk together eggs and almond milk 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.

Microwave or gently warm on the stove until the “no-atmeal” reaches your desired consistency; this should only take a few minutes.

In both cases, stir the mixture frequently as it cooks.

Sprinkle pumpkin seeds and berries on top.

Add more milk if you want.

Lick the bowl clean!
