Protein "Oatless" Oatmeal
What is "Oatless" Oatmeal? Means an oatmeal without oats! Yes, you read that right! This is a Paleo breakfast but since I added some whey protein isolate powder to this so it is a Primal breakfast. You can make it Paleo omitting whey protein powder. Just add honey or maple syrup to it to sweeten the oatless oatmeal.
What you need to make oatless oat.
~1/2 cup raw walnuts
~1/2 cup raw pecans
Nuts in the food processor and blend until they become finely chopped. See the picture below.
What you need to prepare oatless oatmeal:
~1/2 cup of non-dairy milk, any flavor (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
~oatless oats (the nuts from the food processor)
~1/2 cup of egg whites
~2 TBS of chia seed
Pour 1/2 cup of non dairy milk into a small sauce pot. Heat it at medium-high until it comes to boiling, quickly, turn the heat down to medium-lowAdd 1/4 cup of oatless oats (nuts) to the non dairy milk slowly and stir at the same time. Add the remaining of the oatless oats (nuts) and stir. Turn off the heat and then add 1/2 cup of egg whites to the oatless oat mixture and stir quickly to prevent scrambled eggs. Then add 2 TBS of chia seed and stir. Then you have the oatless oatmeal!
Read below for more direction.
What you need to flavor the oatless oatmeal the Primal way:
~12 drops of liquid vanilla cream stevia
~1 scoop of whey protein isolate (I used Banana Cream Isopure)
~sprinkle of unsweetened coconut chips or flakes
~1/4 cup of thawed or fresh blueberries
~dash of cinnamon and nutmeg
The Paleo Alternative way
~omit whey protein isolate
~add a drizzle of raw honey or maple syrup to sweeten the oatless oatmeal
Add a scoop of whey protein isolate into sauce pot with the oatless oatmeal mixture and stir until well incorporated. 12 drops of vanilla cream stevia liquid and mix well again.
Scoop 1/2 cup of oatless oatmeal into your serving bowl. Top with dashes of cinnamon and nutmeg, and a sprinkle of unsweetened coconut chips or flakes. Lastly, add 1/4 cup of blueberries.
Save the remaining for your family or save some for the leftovers. I plan to save some for breakfast tomorrow morning so I don't have to cook or clean up. Or I could eat that for lunch again. However way you want to save your leftovers.
