no-oat oatmeal ... its no-atmeal!

this is a variation of the No-Oat Oatmeal by Doug Descant from the Primal Blueprint reader created cookbook ...

since my husband expressed he would like to try this for breakfast, i wanted something ready-to-go so he or i didnt have to prepare this in the morning before work. so i came up with something that could be blended and saved in jar to be scooped out during the week! its my version of the no-atmeal! plus, i finally got a good recipe down and finally wrote it down! horray for me!! haha

here it is! ... and yes, it looks and tastes like oatmeal ;)

this recipe has at least 5-10 servings depending on how much you eat per sitting - keeps me and my husband good monday-friday :)

In a Blender:

  • 4 bananas
  • 1 cup of unsweetened coconut milk (or almond milk)
blend - making sure not to blend too much, keeping it a bit lumpy ... after several blends it gets too blended so you dont wanna over blend in the beginning

now add:

  • 1-2 heaping tablespoons of almond butter
  • 2 medjool dates
  • 8 tablespoons of coconut flakes

mix and chop a bit ... next add:

  • handful of macadamia nuts
  • handful of pecans
  • handful of walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground ginger

chop and process a bit - dont over process as you want the nuts to be in small chunks to create the "lumpiness"... use a spoon to mix any stuff that sticks to the sides

  • add a handful of raisins

chop and process a bit  - its nice for the raisins to be in chunks so you dont need to chop that much if you dont want

pour into a jar to put in the frig to eat throughout the week! we got our jar from IKEA :)



  1. Looks and sounds GREAT Michelle. You are doing an awesome job here. Bet you are feeling amazing too.

  2. thanks dr bobbi! :D yes absolutely! i feel great since leaving out grains, legumes and dairy! it makes it easier to maintain a good figure too ;) haha but yes the benefits have been great - less moodiness, no sugar crashing, controlled appetite (not starving from sugar crashes and cant think about choosing healthy foods!) ... plus ive really reduced my alcohol intake and im off the pill! reducing toxins in all areas as much as possible :D
