Munchy Monday: Almost Oatmeal

I don’t like oatmeal, really.  But it is a simple and fast breakfast that sticks with you all the way to lunch time.  I was exploring a website about the Paleo diet and I found this recipe.  I tried it, and I actually liked it.  I’d rather eat this than oatmeal, and it has more protein.

Here’s the recipe (click here for the website):


  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened apple sauce
  • 4 Tbs raw, chunky almond butter
  • 2-3 Tbs raw, unsweetened coconut milk  (I used almond milk because I had some on hand)
  • cinnamon to taste
  • dash of fresh grated nutmeg (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a small pan over medium heat, stirring often. Or, microwave for 1 minute and stir.
