No-Oatmeal Hot Breakfast Cereal (grain-free, gluten-free) //

by Kate of

Ever since we gave up gluten and most grains, I have LONGED FOR cream of wheat. I grew up eating it and loved the warm creamy texture, especially when topped with butter and honey!

I have tried the gluten free quinoa hot cereals, the ground up oatmeal with a creamy texture, the rice hot cereals…..none of them were as satisfying as good ‘ol cream of wheat. Until now!

I made this no-oatmeal using pecans because I think they have a really nutty, mild flavor. The flax and the chia seeds give the cereal a gel that creates the creamy texture I was craving. Add in some butter, cinnamon, and raisins and OMG — its really good!



  • Place first four ingredients into a high-powered blender or food processor and process/pulse until ground (be careful not to overdo it, or you will get pecan butter!)
  • Place into a glass jar to store in the fridge
  • When you want to make the hot cereal, just heat up 1 cup of your favorite milk (we use raw milk, but you can certainly use non-dairy milks) and add 3/4-1 cup of the mixture, depending on how thick you want your no-oatmeal
  • Heat over medium heat in a saucepan on the stovetop, stirring continuously until it begins to thicken
  • Remove from heat and allow to sit for about 5 more minutes, it will thicken up even more
  • Makes about 2 1/2 cups of prepared hot cereal, it thickens and expands
  • Stir in your favorite toppings, we prefer grass-fed butter and raisins! We also add in homemade granola and spices too!
