We used to be huge oatmeal girls. We ate it just about every day in college. We remember our freshman year enjoying those quick oatmeal packets, not hot but COLD with milk. We loved the maple sugar flavored one, go figure…sugar!
Then the next few years in college we switched to warm oatmeal and added in almond butter or peanut butter with protein powder stirred in. This makes our stomachs hurt just thinking about it.
Pretty much after college we ate oatmeal less and less. The main reason being that it only caused us to be bloated and constipated. We know you might be thinking, “but it is full of fiber, how can you get constipated from it?” From our personal experiment with fiber we realized we do better with less of it and more healthy fats to keep us regular. We also realized, for us, our bodies do best without oats. We are not saying oats are bad, just our bodies can’t handle them in large quantities.
We do better with plantains. Are you surprised?
During the colder months a warm meal always sounds good. Here is our spin on the classic warm breakfast.
We made this recipe a few weeks ago and finally getting around to sharing it with you. We fell in love with it. Even though we adore this recipe we aren’t giving up on our favorite breakfast just yet, but this is a nice option. It’s also great to enjoy anytime of the day.
Oat-free warm plantain breakfast porridge made easy with a few ingredients
Let’s make this together..
We hope you enjoyed the video.
Make sure to share this plantain breakfast recipe with your loved ones.
This porridge is made with no oats. We wanted to put our Purely Twist on the classic oatmeal or warm cereals.
Of course we used a plantain. It is our number 1 go-to ingredient for making grain-free recipes. Why?
Plantains are a great source of fiber and carbs. Plus they are filled with vitamins and minerals like potassium, B6, folates and iron.
To learn more why we love and use plantains check out this video.

We also used coconut milk but feel free to substitute milk of your choice. Need more dairy free milk alternatives?
You can even make your own milk like: hemp milk or cashew milk and for ourPurely fit life sisters we share how we make pumpkin seed milk inside the club.
We love all the healthy fats and yumminess of coconut milk. We use full fat coconut milk from a can; we just love how rich and creamy it is!
This breakfast would be great to enjoy on chilly winter morning with a good cup of coffee. Just sayin.
This plantain porridge is delicious, healthy and truly soul satisfying.
