Hi, guys! Happy FRIDAY!

I started this morning with a big, fluffy bowl of Paleo “oatmeal.” It was basically a simpler version of my recipe for “Oatmeal” Minus the Oats, but it turned out lighter and fluffier. I didn’t have any ground flaxseed, so maybe it didn’t weigh down the egg whites as much? I have no idea, but it was quite an awesome breakfast!

Paleo “Oatmeal”


  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 3/4 cup liquid egg whites (or 3 egg whites)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup your choice of chopped nuts
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • cinnamon to taste


  1. Whisk together ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Coat a medium saucepan with coconut oil (or lots of cooking spray) and then pour in mixture. Cook on medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until the “oatmeal” reaches the desired consistency; this should only take a few minutes.
  3. Pour oatmeal into a bowl and then top with nut butter, seeds, fresh fruit, or whatever else your little heart desires.

Question of the Day

What’s your beverage of choice with breakfast?

I usually switch between iced coffee/lattes and green juice””usually one or the other””but I’m definitely feeling both today. Maybe it’s the spring-like weather? Warm weather always makes me want iced coffee!

P.S. You still have a chance to enter to win a ProForm treadmill from iFit! I will randomly pick a winner on Monday morning!



  1. COFFEE! I went without coffee for a month and realized that I don’t drink it for the caffeine, I just love the taste and the ritual of it! Tea just couldn’t replace a good cup of coffee.

    In these oats – do you grind up the nuts at all, like in a magic bullet, or just chop them up?

  2. I’ve never tried anything like this –egg whites and banana? What? I’m insanely curious, the photos look delicious and I have all the ingredients… so I’m about to go give it a shot! With a laarrrgee iced coffee on the side of course : )

  3. Hi! Alongside my overnight oats, I always enjoy a mug of hot green tea, sweetened with some almond milk. Also a big tervis tumbler of water. I switched to tea from coffee about a year-and-a-half ago when I moved to San Francisco from Orlando. The switch happened at first because our coffee maker hadn’t made the move yet, and next thing you know, I ditched my coffee habit! Happy Friday to you! Best, Ashley

  4. I usually have a big glass of ice water and then coffee with some coconut milk. I am so impressed with the food that you are eating during pregnancy. I had such an aversion to so many of the healthy foods I usually loved to eat. I couldn’t go near oatmeal. It’s nice to be back to my usual healthy eating and I’m excited to try your paleo oatmeal.

  5. That “oatmeal” looks delicious! My husband and I just started a 21 day paleo challenge and a staple in our house used to be oatmeal! I just discovered the way to make paleo porridge and your way sounds fabulous! Ill have to try it! I am a big fan of a steaming hot cup of coffee with coconut milk for my morning beverage. I’m also curious about trying Seaworth’s cold pressed coffee. I’ll have to order it but I’ve heard that it’s totally worth it! Happy Friday!

  6. Definitely coffee. I may be trying to limit the amount of cups I drink but the morning cup is a keeper. Green Mountain’s Gold French Toast coffee is simply awesome paired with any breakfast that contains peanut butter. The flavors just combine so well.

  7. I’ve just dropped coffee cold-turkey (insert sad trombone), so breakfast beverage has been a big ol’ glass of water. I’m starting to not miss it, actually.

    I need to try this n’oatmeal!

  8. My beverage of choice with breakfast is always coffee (and a little water). I have to wait an hour to eat in the morning after I take my thyroid medication, so it’s more of a breakfast sandwich: coffee while I wait, then my food, then more coffee!

  9. This looks delicious! I need to try it this weekend!!
    I always have my coffee with breakfast! And usually some water too, to start the day off right!

  10. Had my first smoothie of Spring this morning! Went down a treat! Otherwise I do like a mug of green tea…call me strange! 🙂 3/4 cup egg whites is more like 5-6 whites from large eggs. 1/4 cup is usually 2 egg whites 🙂

  11. I always have coffee…the machine is preset before rolling out of bed. As a new mother I have fallen to be dependent on it…oh well, I love the taste so much and we have a variety of creamers and mils to steam, to keep things interesting.

  12. Yumm this looks so good! Too bad I hate wasting egg yolks though – maybe I will try using one whole egg instead of the three whites!

  13. This definitely sounds Yummy to me. Just one doubt! I know that banana contains lots of carbohydrate which could add more weight. Is there any other alternative to it?

  14. Tried this. So delicious. Added a little brown sugar and earth balance butter to mine when all was said and done and used almonds and walnuts as the nuts in the recipe. MM mm good.

  15. Yum this looks awesome! For breakfast, I usually go with just water… or tea afterward. I’m not a big drinker of flavored drinks, except tea.. and a smoothie here and there

  16. Yum this looks awesome! For breakfast, I usually go with just water… or tea afterward. I’m not a big drinker of flavored drinks, except tea.. and a smoothie here and there

  17. These are the bomb. I’ve thrown in chia seeds and flax for extra fiber which also turns out good. Serving size is a little big for me though – have you ever tried freezing? Just curious because making this in batches would be amazing if it held up ok. I’ve stuck extra portion in the fridge before and reheated next day and I thought it was fine, but haven’t tried freezing it. Thanks for the recipe!
