Apple Cinnamon Paleo N'oatmeal

Apple Cinnamon Paleo Noatmeal is perfect for anyone paleo, autoimmune paleo, or otherwise looking for a low carb breakfast solution!

ALERT! ALERT! Finding breakfast options when you’re on the autoimmune paleo diet is literally the worst. When I first got started, I basically just ate skillet meals every day of the week. Man, I missed the simplicity of oatmeal or pouring a box of cereal into a bowl. Meat for breakfast isn’t a bad thing, per-say, but it does get boring after a while. Enter Apple Cinnamon Paleo Oatmeal.

Can You Eat Oatmeal on a Paleo Diet?

Nope. That’s why this paleo oatmeal is made with cauliflower instead of oats. Oats aren’t allowed on the paleo diet because they’re a grain and an anti-nutrient. Eaten in high doses, their lectin content can break down your intestinal lining. That paired with the fact they bind to minerals in your body makes it a food we avoid while on a healing protocol.

What is paleo oatmeal?

Paleo oatmeal is a delicious combination of some of your favorite paleo staples. It includes cauliflower, coconut milk, shredded apples, raisins, cinnamon, and collagen powder for an added boost of protein. Throw these ingredients together in a pan and you have a delicious oatmeal/porridge to enjoy before you start your day. Yum!

How should I store paleo oatmeal?

I love saving it in individual containers so they can be easily reheated. If you’re against microwaving, warm it up in a bath of hot water. If you use a microwave, just put it in there for approximately two minutes. You may want to add a bit more liquid to it if you like it to be a thinner consistency.

Does this apple cinnamon paleo noatmeal taste like real oatmeal?

Yes! The texture is very oatmeal-ish. It’s the closest autoimmune paleo substitute I’ve found since going AIP. If you’re not AIP, I recommend adding in some additional texture like hemp hearts, flaxseed meal, and chia seeds!

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp collagen (optional)
  1. heat coconut oil in a sauce pan until melted

  2. Add cauliflower and sautee over medium heat until it begins to soften, about 3-4 minutes. Taste to make sure it's soft!

  3. Add the coconut flour and stir to combine

  4. Afterwards, add in the coconut milk and stir to combine until it starts to lightly bubble on the edges

  5. Add the cinnamon, apple, collagen, salt, vanilla, and honey (if using), stir and bring to a bubble again

  6. Scoop the n'oatmeal into two bowls and serve with additional honey, raisins, apple slices, and any other toppings you like!

If you are on the candida diet, omit the honey and raisins, then use green apples in lieu of other sweet types of apples.  You can use stevia or monk fruit sweetener as a substitute for the honey.

    Hi Whitney-I tried this recipe and it was okay not great. I followed the recipe precisely and I think the problem was the coconut flour. It didn’t seem to “dissolve” which made the flour taste kind of raw. I’m assuming the flour is supposed to thicken the coconut milk. Maybe I’ll try it again without the flour or not as much. Any suggestions? Thanks..

    • Whitney Shook says:

      Hey Sherrie! I’m sorry you weren’t a fan. The coconut flour isn’t supposed to dissolve, it’s supposed to add a bit of a grainy texture like traditional oatmeal.

      • Rachelle says:

        I agree with Sherrie. Loved the overall taste but not a fan of the grittiness from flour. Will try again without. Thanks.

        • Whitney Shook says:

          Thanks for letting me know, Rachelle!

        • Tanya says:

          Just made this and I was initial hesitant because cauliflower rice for breakfast? But it is delicious and does have the texture of real oatmeal! Will be making it again for sure! I did not notice the coconut flour either. Thank you Whitney!

  2. BJ says:

    The combination of cauliflower rice with other ingredients to make a porridge is genius! For those that don’t like the grittiness of the coconut flour, you may try using bigger chunks of apple – I found that this made the dish more flavorful and distracted from the texture. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    Hi Whitney,
    I made this and love it! I changed coconut flour out and put some roasted coconut flake into my spice grinder and blitzed real quick. I did not use collagen. I had summer fruit so used that instead of raisins. It was creamy and sweet and very filling. This will definitely be a recipe I will use a lot, Thank you!!

    Kind regards,

    Hi, I love this recipe but I do agree with the others that it’s too grainy with the coconut flour.. But I found a solution that I want to share with you- use tigernut flour! It’s perfect for this! It actually mostly has the oatmeal texture! And it has a naturally sweet flavor, if you’re craving something sweet. This is a go-to for an evening snack for me! Thanks!
