It seems when people are missing something from their diets, whether it be by choice, intolerance, or allergy, finding a replacement becomes the focus. Paleo cookies, pancakes, and breads have taken over the world, and dairy free milk practically flows from cows udders.
When I was a vegetarian I would eat faux meat products. Tofu dogs? Chik n’ nuggets made from isolated soy protein? If I met me then, I wouldn’t know me…
Oatmeal Made From Coconut? A little more appealing than smart dogs and tofurkey.
Coconut Flour Peaches n Cream “Oatmeal”
A grain, dairy, and sugar free comforting breakfast that reminds me of my oatmeal eating days.
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 ripe banana
- 1 Egg
- Salt, Cinnamon, Vanilla
- 1 Peach for topping
In a pot over medium heat combine coconut flour, coconut milk, water and thinly sliced 1/2 of a ripe banana. Stir continusly until the banana has fully incorporated into a smooth texture. Crack the egg into the pot and continue to stir until fully combined.
Add a pinch of salt, cinnamon, and vanilla. Continue cooking until an oatmeal like texture has been reaches, about 3-4 minutes. Do not overcook or it will become dry.
Place in a bowl and chop up one peach for a topping. Finish it with a drizzle of coconut milk and optionally maple syrup or honey.
Do you find replacements for anything you don’t eat in your diet? What do you think about faux meat products?
