    Is there a substitute for the vanilla bean pod?

      You can use extract, but it isn’t quite as delicious!

    I made this this morning! Confession: I ate a bowl of it warm because I didn’t want to wait 3 hours. It was delicious, creamy, and surprisingly oatmeal-y due to the combination of salt, banana, and cinnamon (my favorite oatmeal toppings in the “olden days”). I can’t wait to try it chilled. I might add a little sunflower butter next time for a peanut butter vibe….

    Serving size is 0g?

    • Diane Sanfilippo

      We can get that fixed up.

  • Heather W Berger

    This looks delicious. Is it allowed on the SIBO diet? I don’t see seeds on the allowed/not allowed list?

    • Diane Sanfilippo

      It will vary based on your own needs, truthfully.

  • carolyn dodd

    Am I missing something. Where is the oatmeal in the recipe?

    • Diane Sanfilippo

      N’oatmeal implies there’s “no oatmeal” in it but it produces a mock-oatmeal effect as a recipe result :) Enjoy!

    Hi Diane
    I made this last night with Almond Milk and it worked really well, very tasty.
    How long do you think it would last in the fridge?
    Thanks for the recipe.

  • Janie Lynn

    Eggs for a paleo oatmeal sub. is great! I’ve made the trim healthy mama version, after a little tweak, and it was great! That blog post is yet to come.

    From your whole food-y!

      Is 50 calories a serving accurate? With everything in it this number seems quite low. I just made it but was wondering about the calorie count. Thanks!

    • Melanie

      Is there a substitute for using bananas? Not a fan of the fruit but this recipe looks divine!

  • Tammy

    Is there any substitute for bananas, sadly I have found that this is a food I cannot tolerate.. Used to adore bananas, but within the past year have found out my digestive system cannot tolerate, bananas or pineapples.


    • Chrissa

      Avocados would be a great substitution for the bananas, but since they are already high in fat I would also switch out the coconut milk for almond milk.

  • Andrea

    Hi there,
    Are there alternatives around eggs? I can’t tolerate eggs or nuts? Seeds are okay but half my family has SIBO so once we are better we want to try this. Anyhow suggestions to try?


    • Chrissa

      I think grass-fed gelatin would work well. It’s pure clean protein and thickens nicely. That’s the one thing I found rather low in this recipe, I like a bit more protein for breakfast.

  • Heather @ Cook It Up Paleo

    Yum yum! I am so trying this. Thanks Diane! :)

  • af

    I think there’s an issue with the nutrition label…50 cals is pretty low for all that coconut milk. It’s not matching what I came up with on another nutrition calculator anyway.

    Delicious recipe. Thanks for sharing!

  • Christine

    This is awesome!!! Thanks for the post. Day 8 on 21DSD and this is just what I needed as a little pick me up for breakfast. I am curious about the nutrition information – 50 cal. per serving? Is that correct? Seems it should be significantly higher with the coconut milk.

  • Meghan

    This is the best 21 dsd breakfast I have found yet! I was getting so tired of bacon/eggs. How long do you think this is good for in the fridge after it’s made??

  • Hallie

    Just curious about the nutritional information. You indicate there is 4 servings at 50 calories, but there is a can of coconut milk in this recipe. Am I missing something or is the calorie count incorrect? Thanks for the recipe- I am sure it is really good.

  • Annie

    Love you guys and I’m going to absolutely make this recipe TODAY.. but that nutrition is WAY off.. way way off.. It’s at least 250 calories a serving if you’re using a can of Coconut Milk which is 700 calories for a can (or 175 calories per serving from just the Coconut milk).. I don’t have a problem with nuts so I’ll be using almond milk and subbing blueberries for the banana.. Cannot wait to try this! Thanks again for a super recipe!!

    • Diane Sanfilippo

      We’ll check that out again- thanks!

  • Natalie

    Hi, I came up with 298 cals with this divided into 4 servings. This count is definitely low using both coconut milk (full fat) and chia seed. Love the recipe thought! Yum!

    • Diane Sanfilippo

      We’re fixing it- thanks!

      • Hallie

        The nutrition info was changed, but it now says 120 calories per serving. As the other commenters have indicated, it is not accurate.

  • Sonja

    This sounds soooooo good! Thanks for the recipe Diane:) I will try it out soon, but am just wondering how long you think it will stay good in the fridge?

    Thanks a bunch for sharing this recipe! I’ve always had problems in the morning, waking up and feeling sluggish and then having to find some nutritious to eat can be a problem. I love having pre cooked meals ready because it just saves time and reduces the chance of you eating something not so healthy.

    I was looking for something to store in the fridge for breakfast and seems like I’ve found it! =)

    Thanks again!

      I am not sure what I did wrong……This says 4 servings, and you are to put it in mason jars…… I only got about 1?
      What did I do wrong?

      • Diane Sanfilippo

        I’m not sure what happened, either. It should be mixed and then portioned out before chilling.
