Maple Walnut "Oatmeal"


Print Friendly and PDF

Some mornings are just made for oatmeal. Whenever it's a chilly day or a busy day, this recipe is the perfect quick way to warm me up. 

So if this isn't oats, what is it? Cauliflower. Yes, cauliflower. But I promise, it doesn't taste like cauliflower, as that's literally the last thing I would want to eat at breakfast. I buy my frozen riced cauliflower at Trader Joe's because it's super cheap and way more convenient than ricing it myself, but if you don't have a Trader Joe's by you (or they're out because I bought it all ;) ), I recommend ricing it yourself using the blender/food processor + water method. Ricing a head of cauliflower alone will likely just smell up your house.

Oh, and as a warning, I like oatmeal super sweet. So if you don't have a crazy sweet tooth like me, I recommend seriously cutting down the amount of sweetener you add.

Ingredients:

1.25 cup riced frozen cauliflower 
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 egg
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup Swerve 
1/2 cup Walden Farm's maple syrup
6 drops liquid Pure Via 
1 tbsp cinnamon 
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional) 

Instructions:

1) Spray a frying pan with coconut oil spray and melt 1 tbsp coconut oil at a medium/high heat.

2) Add the frozen riced cauliflower. Stir it well until it is no longer in clunks and each piece is hot but not fully cooked.

3) Add the egg in and stir it super fast around the cauliflower before it has a chance to scramble.

4) Add the Swerve, Pure Via, maple syrup, heavy whipping cream and cinnamon.

5) Continue stirring until the oatmeal is very hot. 

6) Top with walnut pieces if you'd like, and enjoy!
