Yes folks I have another version of paleo oatmeal for you today. My first two have been so popular that I decided to keep the trend going! Why mess with a good thing right?
This one is a little different in that I have added some protein in the form of grassfed gelatin and bacon. Yes you read that right. Bacon. Bacon and chocolate belong together if you ask me. Well bacon and anything really. I have been trying to incorporate more gelatin into my recipes because it has so many amazing health benefits. If you missed my post discussing this you can find it here:
I am sure you can tell by the photos that these were taken before I got my new camera. Yes this one has been sitting in the archives for a while. It simply got too hot for oatmeal. But since the cooler weather is back I decided it was time to bring this one out of hiding. And since it contains chocolate it’s kind of like having dessert for breakfast. Nothing wrong with that once in a while now is there?
You know what I have decided? I have a slight obsession with recipes that contain chocolate and raspberries. This will be the 5th recipe on the blog with this theme. At least I am consistent right? If you missed the other recipes here they are (they are all delicious if you ask me – and clearly I am not at all biased):
I hope you like the oatmeal everyone. If you use social medial I would love it if you followed me on Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram. You will get even more health information and recipes on these sites and will often see sneak peaks of upcoming recipes. What more reason do you need?
Paleo Chocolate Raspberry “Oatmeal”
This paleo chocolate raspberry oatmeal is a fun twist on classics oatmeal because it's made with bacon, chocolate and raspberries!
- 2 ripe bananas
- 2/3 cup fresh raspberries
- 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
- 2 tbsp coconut butter
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp collagen peptides
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 pinch sea salt
- 1 1/2 cups finely shredded coconut
- 3-4 pieces cooked bacon, broken into pieces
- 1-2 tbsp maple syrup or honey (optional)
Place a medium sized pot on the stove on low heat.
Add the bananas, raspberries, coconut milk, coconut butter, coconut oil and vanilla extract and allow to simmer for a few minutes until the bananas start to break apart, stirring frequently.
Stir in cocoa powder, cinnamon, collagen peptides and sea salt and simmer for another 4-5 minutes.
If adding maple syrup or honey add that here.
Add the shredded coconut and remove the pot from the heat.
Place the lid on the pot and let it sit for 10 minutes to allow the shredded coconut to soften.
