bacon mocha cauli "oats" with black sesame tahini

Hello, winter. Hello, the return of cauli “oats”!

I used to love oatmeal because of its ability to be a canvas — you can go wild with the toppings, creating savory oats, sweet oats, and everything in between.

Cauli “oats” are basically the same, and I find myself rotating between cauli “oats”, Paleo pancakes, and some form of eggs (sometimes a steak salad or leftovers) for breakfast these days.

Keep reading for my favorite creation yet — a combo of everything sweet, savory, and decadent. It’s packed with protein and healthy fats, and is low carb/keto-friendly, if you’re into that kind of thing.

Bacon Mocha Cauli Oats

Serves: 1 | Time: 10 minutes | Paleo, Keto-friendly



  1. In a hot pan, cook the bacon. I like to to fry it for 1-2 minutes each side. Place on a plate with a paper towel and set aside.

  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the cauliflower rice, chia seeds, flaxseed meal, hot coffee, and almond milk. Microwave on high for 2 minutes.

  3. Let sit for another 2 minutes so that the chia seeds can absorb the moisture more.

  4. Add in the adaptogens (if you’re using them), MCT oil powder, protein powder, collagen, and the spices, and mix thoroughly. Add more almond milk if you want a thinner “oatmeal” consistency.

  5. Top with toppings of your choice and enjoy! I used whatever I had on hand (see above) + the bacon (broken up into pieces) and it was fab.
