Paleo Oatmeal that is creamy, dreamy, and completely grain-free. Super easy to make and just as warming and as delicious, if not more, than normal oatmeal made with oats.
I was honestly really surprised to learn that rolled oats were not Paleo-friendly! Because the Paleo diet is 100% grain-free, rolled oats are not included in it! But, If the Paleo diet doesn’t include oats, how does one eat oatmeal, granola, etc. one may wonder?! Well no worries…just because the Paleo diet is grain-free doesn’t mean you can’t have Paleo oatmeal and grain-free granola that is JUST as delicious as anything made with oats! (I have a grain-free granola recipe coming soon, so be on the lookout for that!)
I had read that Paleo oatmeal was made with almond meal so I used that as the base for this. All you need to accompany that is a few other ingredients and the magic of a blender and you will have a warm, wonderful bowl!
This recipe actually has an amazing consistency that I may prefer to normal oatmeal…the almond meal makes it slightly nutty and the banana gives it a wonderful sweetened touch. The maple syrup is an optional addition if you like it a little more on the sweet side.
And the best part is, you can top it with anything you want! Berries, nuts, honey, more coconut flakes, cacao nibs, chocolate chips, almond butter…the options are endless!
- Blender, saucepan
- 1 Banana
- 1/2 c. Almond Milk

- In a saucepan, heat up the almond milk over the stove until near boiling.
- Transfer it to a blender and blend it with a banana.
