OK, friends. I’m a girl of my word, and I promised to share my version of Paleo-friendly, “oatless” oatmeal.
If you love grainy old-school oatmeal, then you may have a difficult time adjusting to the smooth, creamy texture of this “oatless” version.
It has an acquired taste, and it’s definitely worth the trying exposure period.
Plus, it does a much better job of keeping you satisfied until your next meal.
It’s time to channel your inner caveperson and jump spoon-first into this Paleo dish—here’s how to make “Oatless” Oatmeal.
1/4 cup liquid egg whites
1/2 cup almond milk
2 tbsp. flaxseed
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1/2 banana mashed
1. In a small bowl, whisk together liquid egg whites and almond milk. Add flaxseed, cinnamon, vanilla, chia seeds, and mashed banana. Mix well. (If you don’t want “lumpy” oats, make sure you mash the banana really well.)
2. Spray a small saucepan with non-stick cooking spray. (I used PAM.) Cook mixture on low heat and stir frequently until it reaches oatmeal-like consistency. (This should take about three-five minutes.)
3. Remove from heat and add desired toppings. (I usually slice up the other half of the banana and sprinkle blueberries on top.)
