Sweet Potato N’Oatmeal is just what this season calls for…
School’s started again. The parks are a little quieter, mornings are hectic, and you’re dreaming of fall.
Fall the season of warm sweaters, colors, and flavors as the temperature drops and hopefully (for those of us in California) some precipitation as well!
Fall is my season. My favorite flavors to cook with and favorite ingredients are added back to my regular lineup of cooking. It does something for my heart. Maybe it’s the quiet mornings, the rain, or that cloaked look the sky gets that makes you want to make another cup of coffee and linger inside a little bit longer.
For those of us eating paleo, it also means a lot of extra effort to create the same seasonal flavors that are so accessible to those not choosing to stick to grain-free, refined sugar-free, non hydrogenated oil, etc. choices. I love making my own real food pumpkin spice lattes that are WAAAAYYY tastier and, of course, healthier than their siren stamped cup inspiration. (I’ll share that recipes later.)
Sometimes I’ll go to the effort of making paleo pumpkin waffles or pancakes or maybe some paleo pumpkin spice muffins. But, can we be honest? Those take a lot of time, dishes, and eggs, am I right?? And hopefully you’ve never suffered the sad tragedy of spending all that time to figure out that your pretty pinterest pin recipe was a flop… It’s super sad.
This Sweet Potato N’Oatmeal will be on our regular rotation this fall and maybe all year round! It would be really easy to swap out spices and toppings to create a completely new flavor! Like toasted macadamia nuts and shredded coconut…. Let’s bookmark that idea for later!
This recipe is inspired by Little Bits Of’s Sweet Potat-Oats! Check out her original version for a recipe that is Whole30 compliant (mine includes maple syrup which can be omitted) and is microwave ready. My instructions are for stovetop. She also has some excellent info. for whole30, especially if you’re just starting out!
Anyway, I think you will love adding this to your fall lineup of meals. I topped my Sweet Potato N’Oatmeal with sliced bananas, my maple roasted cashews (any toasted/roasted nut would taste great–that choice was extra decadent), and some cinnamon. Here’s a quick video (note- I doubled the recipe when I made the video):
It’s a recipe that is high in fiber, healthy fats, and vitamins. If you are sensitive/allergic to nuts or autoimmune paleo, skip the nuts and nutmeg (this sweet potato n’oatmeal recipe uses coconut, tigernutmilk may be substituted but I haven’t tried it myself).
