No-Oat Oatmeal!

delicious oatmeal

I only recently found this recipe, but am so happy I did!

Growing up, oatmeal was so much more than just a breakfast food.

For me, oatmeal was an expression of how much my mother’s care.

It meant warmth, it meant comfort. It meant love.

During my yo-yo times of course, Oatmeal (as well as about 99% of what I found delicious) was out of the picture-talk about depression!

Well, after learning how to eat low-carb, whole food options, incorporating a huge amount of delicious substitutions, I eventually have replaced about everything but oatmeal.

Until now…

Thanks to Karen, from Holistically Engineered, I found the inspiration for this recipe!  Not only did she get a healthy substitution in her pudding version, but she also brought back some great memories of my mother’s care :)

Here’s a far healthier spin on the traditional insulin-spiking oatmeal-it’s made with cauliflower-something that takes a little mental flexibility to get used to.  But if you try it once, I promise, you won’t be disappointed!

No-Oat Oatmeal (Serves 3-4)

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 Medium head of cauliflower
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 1 ½ cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4-6 tablespoons erythritol (sugar substitute)
  • Optional: maple syrup extract (flavored to as much love as you’d like)

Here’s what to do:

Wash & clean cauliflower, removing stem & leaves.  Dry it thoroughly. Break into food-processor-sized pieces, and lightly pulse in food-processor until the consistency of rice.

Once cauliflower is fully pulse, add all ingredients but cinnamon to a sauce pan, and heat just long enough so that it’s serving temperature medium heat, 5-9 minutes).  Heating any longer will make cauliflower mushy (you don’t want this!). Pour into a bowl, and sprinkle cinnamon over top.
