Chocolate oatmeal for people who don’t eat grains, sugar or dairy

Chocolate nut breakfast (paleo/primal)

(I don’t want to start a food blog, so I’m going to post some recipes here.)

This has no added sugar, no grains and no dairy. It is loaded with healthy fat and protein, ideal as a post-exercise meal, especially in cold weather. It tastes like a dream and is EXTREMELY filling – this makes at least two servings. You will sail through the morning to a late lunch/early dinner after eating this.

Small handful raw almonds
Small handful raw walnuts
Small handful raw pecans
Small handful shredded coconut
Small handful raw cacao nibs
2 TB flax seeds
2 dates, pitted
1 TB almond butter
3 eggs
1/4 cup unsweetened, full-fat coconut or almond milk (plus more for thinning, if you prefer)
Cinnamon to taste

Grind nuts, cacao nibs and flax seeds in food processor. Set aside in cooking pot, then chop dates and coconut in food processor. Combine with nut mixture in pot.

In a small bowl, whisk eggs and coconut milk to combine well (no need to beat). Whisk almond butter into this custard, then stir mixture into the pot with nut/seed combination. Over low heat, stir until warmed through. It will be like oatmeal, except not glue-y.

Serve with fresh berries, coconut milk, cinnamon and/or additional almond butter as toppings. If you eat sugar-type stuff and aren’t trying to lose weight, you might also like honey or maple syrup in this. It’s THE BOMB! (Yes, I really typed that.)

  1. This looks awesome. I will have to try it. Already bookmarked in under “recipes” and “low-carb”.

    1. I’m glad you said that – for some reason, I feel like my favorite recipes actually look like cat food (or cat vomit) when photographed, but this really does taste amazing. If you need it sweeter, I recommend liquid stevia.

    2. PS You can substitute (or just add) a mashed banana if you don’t have dates or don’t want to use dates.
