I have a friend who recently switched to a Paleo diet and so far the one thing she misses most is her morning bowl of oatmeal. It’s was her go-to breakfast and since eggs don’t top her list of favorite foods, breakfast has been challenging to say the least. So I set out to help her find a replacement for her morning oats. We tried a bunch of different versions and this one surfaced as our favorite. Made with flaxseed meal, chia seeds, shredded coconut, and pumpkin – it’s packed with fiber and pretty delicious. The texture is definitely not the same as normal oats – it’s more like a thick porridge, but I really like the flavor. You can use the pumpkin that’s suggested or substitute in mashed bananas, applesauce, or yogurt if you aren’t a pumpkin fan.
