Primal Berry Banana Oatmeal

Standard

I finally tried this recipe from the Primal Blueprint cookbook last week and I was more than pleasantly surprised! This breakfast treat has way more flavor and protein than real oatmeal and leaves you with a lot more energy. I doubled the original recipe since it called for 1/2 of a banana, and brought the leftovers for breakfast at work. This is such an easy meal to prepare ahead of time.

Primal Berry Banana Oatmeal (Adapted from Primal Blueprint Quick and Easy Meals) (Difficulty: Easy; Makes 4 Servings)
2/3 c. almonds
2/3 c. pecans
2/3 c. walnuts
1 banana
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. unsweetened coconut milk, plus more to taste
3/4 c. frozen organic mixed berries
1 tsp. pure maple syrup or honey (optional)

Add the nuts, banana, cinnamon, salt, and coconut milk to the food processor and pulse to desired texture.IMAG0225

 Heat the mixture in a sauce pot over medium heat, adding the vanilla, mixed berries, and maple syrup (if desired) until the berries and oatmeal are heated through. I added more coconut milk here to make the oatmeal a little thinner.
