Whole30/Grain-Free NO-atmeal

So, I’ve been contemplating doing a Whole30 for a while now. I have some digestive issues, like many people, and I have heard that the Whole30 program is great for digestion. But the program is limited- especially when it comes to Breakfast options. So I came up with an amazing recipe that is Whole30-approved, grain-free, paleo, vegan-friendly, and DELICIOUS! I present to you, my NO-atmeal.

This porridge is creamy, delicious, and it is pretty much identical to oats in texture and flavor. It is perfect for those avoiding grains who still want a delicious, filling, warm breakfast. Plus it is customizable and simple to make with 7 ingredients! image1 (4)

Add some cacao powder for chocolate oats, or you can even add pumpkin or sweet potato for some autumnal oats. There are so many ways to enjoy this porridge.

Now onto the recipe! If you make any of my recipes, don’t forget to tag me so I can see them @balancedbyalexis.

I love this pudding. It is so easy to make and it doesn’t require any fancy ingredients or anything like that.

What is the base? Not heavy cream. Not avocado. BUT TOFU!

Silken tofu is the perfect base for this pudding. When blended, it becomes incredibly smooth, creamy, and thick. Plus each serving has 7g of plant based protein!

Seriously? How good does that look?!?!

I like the eat this stuff plain, or I top it with fruit, almond butter, and some shredded coconut. It makes the perfect base for a healthy and delicious breakfast!
