{Please welcome Meg to the site today! Meg writes the Veggie Staples site and has a ton of great recipes over there. She has stopped by to share her recipe for paleo “oatmeal”, a grain and gluten-free breakfast treat! I hope you enjoy! ~Jessica}

I have always had a strong affinity for oatmeal. When I started eating gluten free, it took me a long time to find gluten free oats! However, after much research I’ve realized that oatmeal spikes your blood sugar, so while I do still have it sometimes as a treat (with gluten free oats), I do try to stay away from them most of the time.

As a school teacher with the year winding down, my weeks have been just a little more than hectic. I have found myself eating this more often than not for it’s quick and easy on to the go container, and also for pure deliciousness. There are just so many options with it, too. Some mornings I feel like adding strawberries, some mornings raspberries. You just can’t go wrong. I used coconut milk yogurt here, but you can use dairy if you are not lactose intolerant, and also change up the variety of kinds of nuts included your morning ‘oatmeal’ parfait. Anyway you throw this one together, you just can’t go wrong!

  1. Chop the nuts. I just put them in a sandwich bag and smash them with a potato masher or meat tenderizer, you could easily put them in the food processor, depending on how small you’d like them. I like min pretty fine.
  2. Add nuts, milk, cinnamon, flaxseed and chia seeds to a pan on medium heat and let simmer until thickened, stirring every few minutes.
  3. All to cool, stir in the yogurt and place in a bowl or jar. Place that in the refrigerator until completely cold.

  5. Add fresh fruit just before eating.

Hey AIP Friends! Are You Struggling with Breakfasts?

I can help! I have done the AIP twice, once for 6 months and the next time for about 18 months and now a large number of my readers are also following the autoimmune protocol for their own healing. I have created a number of AIP compliant recipes for this site, and many can easily be modified to fit your AIP lifestyle.

During my time on the AIP I learned a lot, but breakfasts were, by far, the hardest meals for me to plan out. I was an eggs-for-breakfast kind of gal and turns out, I react to eggs so those for sure had to go. What’s a gal to do when she’s had her favorite go-to breakfast taken away?

Get creative!

Which is what I did, along with the help of 25 other amazing AIP bloggers who all used the AIP to help further along their healing. Together, we created the 85 Amazing AIP Breakfasts eBook (one of the very first digital resources of its kind). The book was coordinated and designed by my friend, Eileen of Phoenix Helix website, and it quickly became a favorite resource in the AIP community!


  • A paleo autoimmune protocol cookbook that is aligned with The Paleo Approach
  • A resource for reversing autoimmune disease
  • The work of 26 AIP bloggers who have used the AIP to improve their own health.
  • 85 curated breakfast recipes from the best of the AIP blogs, including 33 completely new recipes never published before!
  • Over half of the recipes can easily be modified for low-FODMAP, GAPS/SCD, low-histamine, and coconut-free diets using the handy substitution charts included in the book.


  • Delicious beverages like Rooibos “Latte”, Vanilla “Cappuccino”, Smoothies, Liver & Kidney Detox drink, and more!
  • Breakfast bowls like Creamy Grain-Free “Porridge”, Roasted Cinnamon Pear “Oatmeal”, Biscuits & Gravy, Cranachan, and more!
  • Breakfast skillets like Sweet Potato Beef Curry, Rabbit Sweet Potato Hash, Bacon & Veggie Fry-Up, Liver & Mushroom Stir-fry, Zucchini Apple Hash, and more!
  • Soups (yes! You can eat soup for breakfast) like Greek Gyro Soup, Carrot Ginger Halibut Soup, Fragrant Herb & Coconut Chicken Soup, Offal (but now awful!) Stew, and more!
  • Patties like Apple Pie Pork Patties, Ginger Green Onion Patties, Perfect Breakfast Sausage, Tuna Cakes with Green Olives, Cranberry Maple Chicken Patties, and more!
  • Pancakes (yum!) like Sweet Potato Banana Pancakes, Spinach Plantain Pancakes, Fig & Citrus Hand Pies, Plantain Waffles, Cinnamon Crumb Cakes, and more!

Regardless of whether you are just starting out on the AIP or you’re already into the program, this cookbook is the perfect addition to your kitchen. Say goodbye to boring breakfasts and hello to deliciousness every morning! Learn more here and download your copy today (it would make a great gift for a loved one too!) by clicking on this link here, or on the image below.
