Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie Paleo Oatmeal ~ Coconut Flour Recipe

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie Paleo Oatmeal

I bought a can of pumpkin to make the famous paleo pumpkin pancakes I had heard so much about. I tried them and for me they were way too eggy. I much prefer the two ingredient banana pancakes as far as texture and flavor. So I had most of a can of pumpkin left for experimentation. I was growing tired of eating my brownie batter paleo oats* after eating them 7 mornings in a row on our road trip. Don’t get me wrong they are delicious I was just finally on chocolate breakfast overkill.

Easy Apple Pie "Oatmeal" With Coconut Flour (Gluten Free, Sugar Free,Grain Free, Paleo)

My new favorite obsession is apples and cinnamon. I have been trying to eat even healthier and replace some of my sweets with fruit. Don’t get me wrong I still love chocolate but am trying to break my addiction to it. I have created this variation on my Copycat Coco Wheats to satisfy my breakfast sweet tooth. The use of coconut flour keeps this recipe lower carb and low calorie while being grain free and gluten free as well. Who doesn’t like apple pie for breakfast? If you want an even more decadent experience you could drizzle a bowl of this with honey or maple syrup and sprinkle some crushed almonds on top. Go ahead indulge your senses then tell me what your favorite hot breakfast cereal combo is. 🙂

Copycat COCO Wheats featuring Coconut Flour Gluten Free/Grain Free/Paleo/Low Carb/Sugar Free

Gluten Free Copycat COCO Wheats

COCO Wheats hold a special place in my heart. To me they come with a sense of freedom. I took a risk and moved states away with not much money and only one friend who needed a roommate at the age of 19. One of my first breakfasts cooked by myself in my shiny new tiny apartment was COCO Wheats.

Glutino Berry Sensible Beginnings Cereal Review

Glutino Berry Sensible Beginnings Cereal

Glutino Berry Sensible Beginnings Cereal

I am a muffins for breakfast type of girl. Although I have eaten my fair share of cold cereals for breakfast, I prefer warm food and a hot beverage in the A.M. When I did eat more cereal, I ate Special K pre-diagnosis and Cocoa Pebbles (yes, they are gluten free) after my diagnosis. The Glutino Berry Sensible Beginnings Cereal tastes very similar to Special K with Red Berries. The cereal flakes are large and crunchy. They are lightly sweetened so even a child would find them hard to resist. The dried strawberries are melt in your mouth good. The downside is there do not seem to be very many in my particular box. I put this cereal through a few highly scientific tests. 🙂 I like a cereal that can be eaten dry as a quick snack. My boyfriend has sugar issues causing him to need to eat often. That coupled with my Celiac means that we take snacks and a lunchbox with us whenever we leave the house. I could see myself portioning this into snack sized bags and grabbing it on the way out the door. I also tried this cereal with milk. It was equally delicious. I haven’t tried many gluten free cold cereals and the ones I did try were not very pleasing. Glutino Berry Sensible Beginnings Cereal tasted as good as the gluten cereals I remember eating in the past. I took photos before I dug in since I am a messy eater and no one wants to see a half eaten bowl of cereal. Even after sitting for a minute the cereal was still at optimum crunch level and was not soggy at all. I ate while writing so I ate fairly slowly and even the last bite was still crunchy. This could definitely be a way for me to get a quick breakfast when I don’t feel like making my usual hot breakfast.
