Choc-O-Meal No-Grains Hot Cereal

September 1, 2018


Take a break from morning smoothies!


As we head into fall it's nice to have a warm and grounding breakfast. One of my favorite breakfast treats as a child was chocolate Malt-O-Meal. Since Malt-O-Meal cereal is farina-based (wheat) and is a processed food, I choose not to eat it. However, I will admit missing it from time to time.


Here is my solution: Choc-O-Meal No-grains Hot Cereal that supports an Autoimmune, Vata balancing, low FODMAP and Paleo nutrition plan.



  • 1 scoop plant-based paleo protein powder (may favorite brands are Sun Warrior and Functional Nutrients)

  • 1 tsp Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate

  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed (alternate with hemp seeds or chia seeds)

  • 1 cup hot coconut milk (alternate with unsweetened hemp or flax milk)

  • 1 chunk fresh minced ginger or 1/2 tsp ground ginger

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom

  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

  • 1 dollop ghee (optional and great for helping you absorb nutrients!)


  • Mix dry ingredients and ginger in bowl

  • Pour boiling hot coconut milk over dry ingredients and stir

  • Allow to thicken for a minute or two

  • Top with ghee

  • Add extra coconut milk as desired

Time saving hack: I like to pre-mix the dry ingredients in individual small containers or zip lock bags so that I don't spend time measuring and mixing on busy mornings!


Food rotation hack: Alternate the type of seeds and milks so that you are not eating the same ingredients each day. Use vanilla, chai or other protein powder flavors to add variety.


Need more sweetness? Add stevia, monk fruit sweetener or lohan maple syrup (monk fruit and lohan are not recommended for low FODMAP) for added sweetness (although I don't find I need this when using the chocolate protein powder).
