Grain Free Oatmeal

Grain Free Oatmeal without Oats

After working out the other day, I was really craving protein, but was getting tired of basic scrambled eggs. Probably due to the high intensity exercise, I was also craving something mildly sweet. On a whim, I decided to make a sweet version of scrambled eggs. I added coconut oil, almond butter, vanilla, and raisins to the eggs (I remember a friend saying she had done something similar). I figured if it was awful, I was hungry enough to be able to eat it anyway, so what did I have to lose? And there are all kinds of egg based desserts out there such as baked custard, pudding, crepes, and chocolate mousse, so maybe it wasn’t such a crazy idea?

The taste and texture actually somewhat reminded me of oatmeal. Disclaimer: It has been a long time since I’ve eaten oatmeal, so if you’ve been gulping down Quaker in hopes of lowering your cholesterol (which doesn’t work) it might not taste so similar to you.

Basically, if you’re looking for a grain-free oatmeal variation to try with your eggs that is more sweet than savory, this might be a good option. (I’ve also added dark chocolate before … it was good … and no, I’m not pregnant!)
