Fauxtmeal: Paleo Oatmeal

Have you been feeling like your breakfast options are getting redundant? When I think of a protein packed breakfast, immediately eggs, bacon, and sausage come to mind. While I love meat at all times in the day (GO MEAT), sometimes you just want something different. For those of you ex-cereal and oatmeal lovers, I bet you've been missing those options since entering the cave-life. WELL, thanks to Mark's Daily Apple's Primal Cookbook Challenge, you can bring "oatmeal" back into your life.

This recipe not only fulfills that gatherer craving and substitutes the ever comforting warm bowl of oatmeal, it is also packed with protein, healthy fats, vitamins, and essential minerals. The original version of this recipe used banana, but I've been keeping banana out of my diet because it is a deceptively high glycemic-index fruit.

Handful of pecans and almonds (walnuts also an option)
2 tbsp ground flax seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
A couple dashes of ginger
A couple dashes of nutmeg
1 tbsp nutbutter (I had sunbutter at hand)
3 small apples (peeled, cored, coarsely cut into pieces)
3 eggs 
1/4 cup almond milk (can also use coconut milk)

In a food processor, pulse the nuts, flax, and spices to a coarse grain texture and set aside. Finely chop and mash the apples- I used my food processor for this step. Mix the apple mash with the nutbutter well. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and almond milk until it creates a light custard type texture. Mix in the apple-nutbutter mixture, and finally, add the ground nuts and spices. Warm the fauxtmeal on the stove or microwave for a few minutes. Top with some fresh berries or sunflower seeds, add almond milk if you like your oatmeal a little runny.

You can make the oatmeal more tasty by adding almonds or walnuts.
