Paleo Oatmeal | A Girl Worth Saving

Early last week, I walked outside and I got that tingle that fall is just moments away. I AM NOT READY. I still want to bask in the sunshine and pretend that I don’t live in a city where it rains 8 months out of the year.

My only consolation is that with the cold, dreary weather comes warm food. Casseroles, baked sweet potatoes and everything that leads to me gaining 5 lbs. I figured it was time to come up with a hot Paleo Oatmeal recipe.

I wanted to make this a nut-free recipe so I stuck to pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and chia seeds. Truth be told, I wanted to also use coconut shreds but I knew that my coconut-flavor hating husband would have a fit.

For sweetness, I used dates. Seriously, it gives it the most amazing warmth. It makes the coming fall season easier to bear when I think about making this for breakfast on those cold mornings.

After you’ve processed this in your food processor, it will look like this. Now, here’s where you have the option of how you want to try this recipe. You can either simply pour some milk over it cold and eat it like a cereal or cook it, and have oatmeal. Mr. Bejelly preferred this cold and I loved it hot. This recipe makes several servings so you can pop it in a jar and eat it throughout the week. It’s also crazy filling. The cooked recipe below only uses 1 cup of the mix and would easily feed 2 very hungry people.

Wonderful. I definately did not have any ingredients on hand. I used pepita seeds, walnuts, almonds, dried cranberries, vanilla and half/half. Thickened with grad flax seed, seasoned to taste with sea salt. OMG. Thank you.

So good! Really nice texture, flavourful and so warming. You won't believe it's not oatmeal! Your recipes work every single time. I know I can totally trust that they'll turn out just like the picture which is so important when you're searching for good alternatives to mainstream wheat-based recipes. So thanks for all your wonderful recipes :D

Has anyone tried this without the dates? I made it with the dates and it was great. Wondering how it would go without them.
