You are going to love this paleo oatmeal. I love eggs and bacon as much as the next girl, but I need something sweet to start my day once in awhile.
We’ve got your healthy sweet breakfast solution in this paleo oatmeal alternative. I especially loved this after eating savory eggs everyday for two weeks straight while on Whole30.

I have used eggs in other ways, like in our gluten-free eggs Benedict casserole, but I can only eat so many savory egg dishes. That’s why I created this creamy delicious paleo oatmeal.
I have been trying to be more conscious of what and how I eat and decided this would be a fun recipe to create. It was delicious and my little ones even liked it. The flax adds great color and nutrient density to this high protein breakfast cereal.
Pro tip: If you want your oatmeal to be sweet, use a brown-spotted banana. If you want your oatmeal not as sweet, use a slightly green banana.
If you like this, then you should try our oat flour pancakes. They definitely are not as healthy, but they have that delicious oaty flavor you get with this recipe. We also have baked oatmeal bars that are gluten-free that you should try.
What you need
This recipe calls for easy ingredients that you most likely already have in your pantry. You only need a few things, but you can always add more for extra flavor. Some topping options are maple syrup, raw honey, almond butter, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, sweet potatoes, cocoa powder, fresh berries, banana slices, and many other things!
Flax meal gives this recipe that oatmeal taste but is a much healthier option. We love the Bob’s Red Mill brand for this recipe. Flax seeds are great for healing digestive issues and are common in paleo recipes.
Full fat coconut milk is a great dairy-free milk option because it is sweet and doesn’t have allergens like almond milk does. Plus, it gives a tasty coconut flavor to this paleo twist on regular oatmeal.
How to make it
- Whisk all ingredients together until well combined
- In a pot over medium heat, cook whisking often so big lumps don’t form
- Cook 8-10 minutes or until the consistency of traditional oatmeal and eggs are cooked
- Top with your favorite fruits, nuts and even a splash more coconut milk
Nope. Oatmeal contains oats, which are a grain. Grains are not allowed on a paleo diet, so they should be avoided. That is why this recipe is so great! No oats, so it’s perfect for a paleo dish.
A paleo diet focuses on all-natural foods. You want to avoid highly processed foods. Meat, produce, seafood, and eggs are very common in a paleo diet. Nuts and seeds are also very common. Grains and dairy are not allowed in a paleo diet. Processed sugars are also a no-no. Basically, the paleo diet is all about eating natural ingredients.
Allow the oatmeal to cool to room temperature, then place in the fridge in an airtight container. It will keep up to four days.
