Primal Hot Cereal Recipe

I came across this recipe in Mark Sisson’s Primal Blue Print cook book.

Primal Cereal:

Time in the Kitchen: 10 minutes

  • 1/2 cup almonds slivered or whole
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk

Pulse all ingredients in a food processor or blender until desired consistency is reached.  Depending on your preference, the hot cereal can be smooth and creamy or chunky.

Warm cereal in the microwave or on a stove until hot.  Add fresh berries and more almond milk or coconut milk to taste.

Here is an option for those that are not 110% Paleo and enjoy some oats!

I am not a huge fan of bananas, so I used apple sauce (that is what I had to substitute instead).  I also thought I would throw in a 1/4 cup of oats as well.  A made the recipe a little different by cooking the oats and nuts on the stove with some water so it made it easier to blend them together.  Once they were softened, I added the apple sauce and cinnamon and blended.  The cereal is already hot, so then I added the almond milk.  Yummy!

Give it a try and let me know what you think 😉
