I wanted something hot and oatmeal like for breakfast, but no oatmeal on Paleo. So I searched high and low for something that might be close. I found several options that took up a lot of time. I needed one that was quick and partially pre-made. Well my oven was on last night from making my pork butt so I cut open a butter nut squash and roasted it. I sliced it in half, took out the seeds, slathered it in coconut oil and baked it at 350 for about 55 minutes. Then I added a tsp of maple syrup and a pat of grass fed Kerry Gold butter. When the squash cooled down I scrapped it out of the skin and put it in my fridge for the morning. This morning I pulled out my squash, put it in the sauce pan and added coconut milk, cinnamon,maple syrup, shredded coconut, vanilla and nutmeg. There you have Paleo oatmeal kinda stuff. I got the recipe idea from Real Sustenance.
