Cook the cauliflower and milk mixture until just fully heated through and add in the peanut butter, vanilla extract, and prepared seasoning. Let the peanut butter cauliflower mixture simmer until thickened or no liquid flows when you tilt your saucepan.

Ingredients & Substitutions
- Cauliflower - one of the most go-to ingredients for low-carb substitutes. Its flavor is almost bland or a blank canvas, making it easy to infuse flavors in.
- Coconut Milk - a delicious by-product of coconut that is creamy and rich in flavor. Full-fat coconut milk is ideal for this recipe for its richer, naturally sweet taste and thicker consistency.
- Oat Milk - a great alternative to those who are lactose intolerant or have a nut allergy. Since it’s derived from oats, its flavor profile is slightly nutty. Adding oat milk gives this breakfast recipe its oatmeal flavor.
- Aromatic Spices - the spice mix of ground cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg gives off a warm aroma and flavor. A great flavor mix for breakfast to wake up your senses too!
- Brown Sugar - compared with granulated sugar, brown sugar has a sweet caramel flavor that goes well with the other components of this breakfast bowl. Honey is a great substitute for brown sugar in this recipe; it also tastes great with peanut butter.
- Peanut Butter - a pantry staple that is great as a spread, flavoring, or simply eaten with a spoon. You can use your favorite store brand peanut butter or make your Homemade Peanut Butter with just two ingredients.
- Vanilla Extract - added for the extra warm and comforting flavor. Vanilla extract can easily be found in stores, but you can also make your own batch for other recipes. This simple recipe can help you make your own vanilla extract: Homemade Vanilla Extract.
- Jam - a truly classic pair for peanut butter lovers! This is also a great way to use any leftover fruit-flavored jam or jelly from your pantry for a more filling breakfast.
