Organic Coconut “Oatmeal” with Stevia & PB2

After a run last night I was craving something filling, but didn’t want to stray from clean eating. So, I created this treat off the top of my head! The picture might not do the recipe justice.

This warm bowl of

Organic Coconut “Oatmeal”

is delicious and decadent! As you might have guessed, there is no actual oatmeal in this bowl. Instead, there are several delicious substitutes. I will break down the process of making this to make it simple and understandable (these measurements are not exact because I eye-balled them until the concoction was the desired texture):

Start with a bowl

Put about half a cup of almond milk into the bottom of the bowl

Add a few tablespoons of PB2 (powdered peanut butter–85% less calories than peanut butter)

Add a few tablespoons of coconut flour

Add a sprinkling of both chia and flax seeds

Add a half scoop of Jay Robb’s protein

Add half a banana (sliced up)

Add 2 drops of stevia

Mix all of these ingredients together and add more almond milk or more coconut flour as needed (the consistency should be like pancake batter)

Next, since I’m not a fan of microwaving foods, I put this mixture in a skillet that has coconut oil in it (on medium heat).

I simply heat the mixture through until it is similar to warm oatmeal (stir it around often) and then put the cooked mixture in a bowl and enjoy with a spoon! Add cinnamon on top for extra richness and flavor.

  1. That’s really interesting! Fancy just making something that yummy looking up, I’m impressed!
    It does look yummy to me, and I have all the ingredients but we don’t have powdered PB over here as far as I’m aware but I bet I can find something 🙂

    1. Well thank you! I have grown fond of experimenting with foods and making different and exciting creations 🙂 Cashew butter, almond butter or a natural/organic peanut butter would do the trick too! PB2 is just nice because it packs a ton of natural flavor and not as many calories as ordinary peanut butter. 🙂

  2. This looks like a great recipe! I like the idea of the protein and almond milk. Looks like this is a great way to mix things up from the ordinary oatmeal that everyone tends to become so bored with. I find myself always looking to experiment in the kitchen and this looks like it could be a fun new recipe. I would like to say that instead of using the PB2 I might try to use almond butter, I think it could also add a good taste to the “oatmeal”. I have recently found that almond butter is a great substitute that is healthy and tastes good too. Another great ingredient is the banana you added, might try some fresh berries for a good after work out snack. This also looks like it could possibly become a good start to a new shake recipe. I realize everyone always talks about trying new recipes and they probably don’t ever get to try something they would actually like, however this one looks like a great recipe. It is always nice when you are able to make something from nothing, but it is also nice when the ingredients you put together turn out to be something you really enjoy. Not only is it nice when the recipe turns into something that’s good tasting, but it is also nice to be able to share with your friends or followers on the Internet. Good job with this creation, I can’t wait to try it out.

    1. I’m glad you took something from this post! Thank you for the elaborate feedback. Another great thing about using this coconut flour instead of oatmeal is that it is gluten free, unlike processed oats. Almond butter is an excellent option! Great thinking. Banana can surely be replaced with any other fruit, I just happen to prefer the combination of banana and peanut butter together. It is so cool to me that making nutritious snacks and meals can be so delicious and easy to throw together. Thank you again for stopping by and reading!!
