Yesterday I got a message through instagram asking if I could make a recipe for those who cannot handle oats. I was actually super happy with this message, because these Grain-Free Banana Bread ‘Oats’ have been sitting in the ‘drafts’ section of my recipe posts for weeks now. I didn’t know what to say about them, except for the fact that they are just so delicious!

Thanks to the message I received, I have much more to say now, funny enough. Like that these oats are perfect for those following a grain-free diet or paleo lifestyle. But you don’t need to be following a strict diet to enjoy these! I definitely don’t ;).

My reason for making them was as simple as any; I wanted to switch things up! These ‘oats’ are definitely not the same as what you typically think of when you think of oatmeal, but it’s also absolutely not like eating a plate of cauliflower, either. If you’ve ever tried adding veggies to your oats, you know it’s B.S. when people say ‘you really don’t taste it at all!’. Let’s be real. I know when there’s shredded veggies sneaking around in my oats. But for me, it’s a personal preference, and I truly enjoy when I add veggies to my oats.

If you’ve been following me along on this blog for a while now, you’ll see that this recipe is very similar to my Vanilla Cauliflower Protein Oatmeal. I actually got the inspiration for this recipe from my original oats recipe, but just left out the oats and tripled the amount of cauliflower! What is different in this recipe, however, is of course the addition of the banana, and most critically, the coconut flour. The coconut flour is super important in this recipe, as it binds the recipe together, as cauliflower cannot do that on its own!

But just like in my Vanilla Cauliflower Protein Oatmeal, I added a scoop of vanilla protein powder to make the ‘oats’ extra creamy. My favorite protein powder that is paleo AND vegan is Nuzest Clean Lean Protein. If you live in the US, you can use the code ‘simplybalancedliv’ for 15% off your order on the Nuzest USA Website.
