I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with friends and family and hopefully lots of yummy (paleo) food.  My family and I enjoyed a low-key Thanksgiving which was a nice alternative to our very crazy lives.  We all got to do what we like…the kids watched the Thanksgiving Parade, the hubby got to watch football, and I got to cook.  Ha!  No, seriously though it was great.  Not sure if you follow me on Instagram, but I posted a picture of our Paleo Pecan Pie.  I wasn’t a lover of Pecan Pie before but now I just might be.  You’ll have to wait though till the cookbook for the recipe.  Sorry guys!

I hope you aren’t tired of pumpkin by now!  I had leftovers of pumpkin and I was tired of eggs for breakfast and for some reason missed a hot bowl of oatmeal that I once enjoyed in my pre-Paleo days.  So this recipe came about.  I liked it so much I had it two mornings in a row.  I highly recommend throwing some toasted pecans with the apples on top.  It’s not photographed here but I think you should totally do it if you make this.

I’m going to keep this post short.  I’m tired!  I’m completely swamped with deadlines but I still wanted to let you guys know I love you and share another recipe before I laid my head down for the night.

And don’t forget about the 30% discount deal eMeals is having.  You have until Friday, November 30th to take advantage of the discount for their Paleo meal plans.  It’s a great deal and great for the busy holiday season.

Pumpkin Spiced Paleo “Oatmeal” with Maple Cinnamon Apples

In a pot over medium heat add mixture and cook for 3 to 4 minutes stirring constantly, making sure not to overcook or the oatmeal will become too dry.  Add 2 tablespoon coconut milk and stir to incorporate.

1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional)

1 teaspoon coconut oil

    I made this today, mainly for myself, but also for my husband who doesn’t like pumpkin very much and my 14 yr old son who just stated yesterday that he’d like to try the Paleo diet with us. Well… it was a huge hit!!!! I even gave it to my son while he was still in bed and I thought for sure he would turn his nose up at it, but he looked in the bowl, took a nibble and then shot right up to a sitting position to eat the rest of the bowl!!! Awesome recipe!!! Thanks!!! Elisa

    Heather, I just wanted to introduce myself. I saw your website and ebook on Paleomg.com’s site and I have spent the last hour looking at your site. I just started blogging this year (ourfullplate.com) and have a lot in common with you. I am a mother of two and I love to cook healthy meals (mostly all Paleo) for my family. I also work full time so my meals have to be EASY yet taste good because my boys are tough critics. Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and I will be coming back to check out more recipes for sure. This morning I had a weak moment and was craving oatmeal (who craves oatmeal, I guess Paleo peopel do?). I MUST TRY THIS RECIPE of yours. Can’t wait!

    Made this for breakfast this morning for me and my 9 yo daughter – it was delicious, will definitely be making again. Thank you for a great recipe for breakfast, we always struggle as we were cereal people before gradually introducing Paleo.
