Paleo Overnight Tropical Refrigerator N’oats’

oats

I used to love oatmeal.  In fact, I loved it so much, when my husband and I would argue, instead of showing up with flowers, he’d show up with a canister of oatmeal.  In fact, I only stopped eating oats a couple of months ago.  I felt like I tolerated oats just fine, but I decided to try a month completely grain-free to see if it made a difference.  It did!  I’m both mind-blown and bummed.  I mean, I’m thrilled with how good I feel, but it stinks that I only feel this way without my beloved oats.

I’ve been craving oats so much lately!  I’ve seen a lot of posts about no-oat alternatives.  I figured if other people could do it, so could I.  I pulled out some different ingredients that sounded good.  The result was amazing.  I could eat this breakfast, lunch, and dinner if I allowed myself!

Ingredients:

1/4 cup unsweetened coconut chips (you can find organic at Wal-Mart)

1/4 cup almond slices (or slivered almonds)

4 unsweetened dried apricots, finely chopped

1 Tbsp maple syrup (optional, but very yummy)

3 Tbsp full-fat coconut milk

1 Tbsp water

Sprinkle of cinnamon, for garnish

Coconut milk, optional to pour a little more on top

Directions:  Place coconut chip, almond slices, chopped apricots, maple syrup, full-fat coconut milk, and water in an airtight container in the fridge overnight.  Before closing the container, thought, give it a little stir to ensure it’s all well mixed.  The following morning.  Pour the contents into your blender and pulse for about 30 seconds.  You want to retain some texture.  I kept mine pretty chunky.  I always like chunkier oats.  The old-fashioned oats were always so much better than the scrawny minute one.  Once you’re happy with the texture, scoop into a bowl.  I sprinkled mine with a little cinnamon and added a splash of coconut milk on top.  I used to love pouring extra milk on top of my oatmeal.  Well, there you have it!  Enjoy!
