Coconut Flour “Oatmeal”

I’m here to say good morning with a big bowl of fake oatmeal.

This is my favorite type of recipe.

Breakfast! Specifically a unique (unless you’ve already been making coconut flour oatmeal) breakfast to switch up your breakfast routine.  

I have to switch up my food.  I get bored easily and when I’m bored with food it’s very difficult to eat mindfully (<–great post) and stop when I’m full.  I like feeling excited for the food I’m about to eat and that means trying new foods ALL THE TIME.  So again I say…for me, oatmeal everyday = no satisfaction.  

Must change it up.  Coconut flour oatmeal = change.

And it’s funny I like change when it deals with food because I’m really bad with change.  Or I was in college.  I think I’m better with life changes now because I get to do all the changes with Andrew.  Marriage helped for sure.  It’s nice to have your person.  I wish that for everyone.

During summer my body seems to be very anti-oatmeal and hot coffee because anytime I walk outside I know I’m going to be hot hot hot and I don’t want to eat a breakfast that is hot hot hot.  But for whatever reason this past week I’ve been craving warm, cozy foods and cups of coffee.  I even sprung for whole milk at the store so I could make the best lattes.  

Other news about me…I went to Home Goods for the first time and LOVED it.

I got all this.  

So much beautiful kitchen-y-ness.  

After reading this post from Ashley I knew I wanted a table I could leave out all the time so I wouldn’t have to pull our coffee table over to our window and then put a wooden box with a piece of tile on top of it every time I wanted to take blog pictures.  That process was getting old.  Andrew found the cart at Home Goods and I agreed it was perfect.  We’re in the process of staining the wood on top a darker shade.  Love it.

Speaking of darker shades…this “oatmeal” is definitely a darker shade than traditional oatmeal.  If you’re thinking, “can you taste the coconut?” No. You can’t.  I’ve got you coconut haters’ backs.

So do you remember that pistachio & hemp granola I made last week? (This granola.)  Since granola is the perfect topping for life (i.e. ice cream, yogurt, smoothie bowls), it’s clearly the perfect topping for coconut flour oatmeal.  It adds a nice CRUNCH, which is something all oatmeal could use.

This oatmeal is the exact same recipe that I used in this pancake (which was inspired by this pancake), but it’s just all mashed up and cooks way quicker…about 1 1/2 minutes.  That’s fast.  

And since the “oatmeal” is so fast to make, you have plenty of time to caramelize some fruit to top it with.  To mine I also added some of that aforementioned granola and MORE pistachios and hemp seeds because they’re pretty AND nutritious.  Win win.

Coconut Flour "Oatmeal" + Caramelized Mangos & Peaches

Yield: serves 1

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 7 minutes

Total Time: 12 minutes


1 large banana, mashed
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon coconut flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 mango, thinly sliced
1/4 large peach, thinly sliced
3 teaspoons coconut oil, divided
optional toppings: hemp seeds, pistachios, granola



Add 2 teaspoons coconut oil to a saute pan and heat over medium heat.  Add mango and peaches and cook for 2 minutes, or until fruit starts to caramelize.  Flip to other side and cook until the other side begins to brown.  Turn off heat and set aside.

In a bowl, combine mashed banana, eggs, coconut flour and cinnamon.  Whisk vigorously until all the coconut flour clumps are gone.  Add the remaining 1 teaspoon coconut oil to a sauce pan over medium heat.  Add in "oatmeal" mixture and use a spatula to scrap the bottom of the pan, much like you would when you are making scrambled eggs.  Cook until the mixture seems light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.  Scoop "oatmeal" into a bowl and top with caramelized fruit, handful granola, hemp seeds and pistachios.

spooning should always involve coconut flour.  (actually, nvm.)


  1. Oh my gosh! Mindreader!! I was just having a whinge today about how cold it is and how much I miss oatmeal at the moment now that I’m cutting out grains.  Then this is the first thing I see when I opened Bloglovin’!  Thanks heaps – I LOVE your site by the way!

  2. As much as I love that pancake recipe, I know I am going to LOVE this. :)

  3. I MUST try this as soon as I am done with the Whole 30!

  4. This is beyond perfect. I have been craving oatmeal for so long (but my body doesn’t like it) and have been wondering if I could recreate the idea of it with coconut flour. You totally read my mind!

  5. Real question…. Do you think I could make this in the microwave?

    • I actually think YES! I’d microwave it 10 seconds then stir vigorously-microwave it 10 seconds then stir vigorously-then keep repeating until it’s cooked!

  6. Yay for coconut flour! Coconut flour is the best…when it doesnt make your recipe taste like a soggy sponge :) 

  7. I’m a creature of habit when it comes to foods..when I find something I like I could happily have the same things for breakfast/lunch/dinner. My mom is the same! But I do love trying new things.

    • My husband is totally you and your mom! He eats the same thing for breakfast EVERY SINGLE weekday. I could probably feed him the same thing for dinner every night and he’d be happy lol
