Grain-Free & Paleo Spiced Overnight N’Oatmeal

Sep 19, 2016

There is a funny joke around my parents house, that whenever we come home or any of my friends stop by, my mom, Kimberly, will feed you a feast of a breakfast.  She will try to make you grain-free banana pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage, bone broth and berries and whipped cream.  Really Mom and Dad, you should open a bed and breakfast!

Growing up, my mom used to make a big pot of oatmeal for weekday mornings.  If there was one thing I remember about high-school days, or any day at home—let’s be real, she still makes me breakfast when I come home—it’s that we were never allowed to leave the house without a big breakfast.

And that totally has carried over to me, because I never ever miss breakfast!

In college, I used to make those oatmeal packets for early mornings—totally not healthy, so please no one go do this. 😉  People always say oatmeal sticks to you, yeah I don’t get that.  I usually am starving within an hour.  Sadly regular oatmeal is usually just a bunch of processed carbs and sugars, not my mom’s butter and cream filled oatmeal…or this amazing, protein-filled and delicious grain-free oatmeal!

With fall and cooler weather approaching, I thought this would be the perfect time to test out a oatmeal recipe (or n’oatmeal) for you all—free of grains, gluten and refined sugars! I tested this a few times and honestly couldn’t stop eating it—so, so good!

Plus, it actually tasted and felt like oatmeal to me, even that awesome gooey, creamy oatmeal like texture!

Just a few notes—

  • I made it entirely without any added sweeter, like the raw honey I suggest.  I preferred it that way as well as topped with a spoonful of blackberry jam.
  • I liked the texture best when I warmed it with a bit of water to make it less thick!
  • Keep in mind that collagen peptides are much different than gelatin, but the collagen gives this a boost of extra protein!  The two act very differently and you cannot use gelatin in this recipe.


Grain-Free & Paleo Spiced Overnight N’Oatmeal

makes 6 servings

*Adjust amount of honey based off desired sweetness.  I found the n’oatmeal sweet enough with just the blackberry jam topping.

**Recipe in my cookbook, All American Paleo Table


  • Add all dry ingredients (nuts, coconut, flaxseed, collagen and spices) to the bowl of a food processor and pulse to a slightly chunky flour like consistency.  Add in the honey, cream, water, and vanilla extract, and blend until thick and mostly smooth.
  • Transfer to individual sized jars (these glass Weck jars are my favorite and the perfect size for one serving) or one large container.
  • Chill for a minimum of 6 hours or overnight.
  • In a small pan, warm desired amount with butter and more water if too thick.
  • Serve topped with blackberry jam, a splash of cream or maple syrup if desired!
  • Store remaining n’oatmeal jars in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

    Thanks! This sounds delicious. I bought a canister of collagen peptides, so I’ll be trying out a lot of your recipes.

  2. Jessica says:

    HAve you tried a crockpot version of this?

  3. Elizabeth S says:

    Would there be a way to sub grass-fed gelatin for the collagen? Maybe use much less gelatin to get the same effect?

  4. Maureen H says:

    Is the collagen peptide just a protein boost or required in the recipe? I’d like to try this and wondering if I could test out if the family likes it before purchasing the collagen?

    This looks so good. Unfortunately I will have to sub almonds for the cashews (which is heartbreaking, I love cashews, but they don’t love me). Or is there another nut you think might work better?

    Can/will you please add calorie &, if possible nutritional information for your recipes?
