This recipe is a paleo and grain-free version of oatmeal using cauliflower rice.


  • 1 cup homemade vanilla coconut milk beverage or your favorite dairy-free milk
  • 22 1/2 cups cauliflower rice (about the amount that comes from a medium head of cauliflower)
  • 2 teaspoons cocoa powder
  • 1 scoop collagen protein
  • 4 whole eggs
  • 1/2 cup organic blueberries or chopped strawberries, for topping
  • your choice of sweetener, you’ll need the equivalent of 1-2 teaspoons of maple syrup or molasses per serving


  • Place your choice of dairy-free milk in a medium saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer.
  • Add the cauliflower rice and stir to combine. Let the mixture come back to a boil, reduce the heat to low, and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  • Stir in the eggs, cocoa powder, and collagen protein.
  • Cover the pot and let it simmer for 2-3 more minutes for the eggs to cook through. Stir once more before serving.
  • Top with chopped fruit and your choice of sweetener*.


*You can also stir the sweetener into the mixture before serving, if you prefer.
