Primal N’Oatmeal

On mornings when a bowl of oatmeal is what your body craves, this hearty and comforting Primal breakfast cereal is exactly what you need. Coconut flakes, almonds, pecans, and the milk of your choice are blended into a creamy, oatmeal-like cereal that’s sweetened with a single Medjool date and topped with fresh berries.

Make Primal oatmeal in the morning, or the night before. Serve it hot, or cold. Personalize your bowl by using different types of nuts and non-dairy milks, sweetening with pure maple syrup instead of a Medjool date, and adding more flavor and nutrients with add-ins like butter, cinnamon, Primal Fuel, powdered gelatin or chia seeds. However you do it, “oatmeal” doesn’t get any tastier than this.

Serving: 2

Time in the Kitchen: 10 minutes (plus, time to soak the nuts, if desired)



  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes (16 g)
  • ¼ cup raw almonds, preferably soaked (1.25 oz/37 g)
  • ¼ cup raw pecans, preferably soaked (1 oz/25 g)
  • ½ cup coconut milk, nut milk or cow’s milk (120 ml)
  • 1 pitted medjool date, soaked for 10 minutes in hot water
  • Pinch of salt

Optional Add-ins

  • Cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon Primal Fuel*

In a high-powered blender, chop the coconut flakes and nuts until finely ground.

Add the milk, date and a pinch of salt. Blend until thick and smooth.
