Amazing Grain-Free Oatmeal Four Ways (AIP)

I am continuously amazed by what executive chef Ann is able to pull off. When we made the recipe for AIP Shrimp and Grits we thought that the “grits” prepared differently could be a great breakfast item. One of my favorite comfort food breakfasts is oatmeal and, suprisingly, plantains is the perfect AIP version of the warm breakfast dish.

So many choices of delicious toppings for your “Oatmeal”. The Cinnamon Apples are good. I love blueberries so they were really good. But the Banana’s Foster, WOW. They were the favorite here in the POTG test kitchen. If you only want to make one topping, make the Banana’s Foster! Let us know how you like it.
