Low-Carb, Grain-free “Oatmeal”



One of the hardest things about going lower-carb is giving up those hearty grains.


But before you climb back into bed forever, know that a hearty morning- low-carb porridge is still available.


Oatmeal can still exist in your life… even without oats!

Not that I'm saying oats are bad, especially, Bob's Red Mill Gluten-free oats


There are a few different low-carb "oatmeal" alternatives to keep that hearty bowl a part of your mornings, and they’re all pretty damn delicious if I do say so myself!!


Ugh...Are you one of those people that really don't like to cook? Okay, okay...Here's a similar "ready-made" alternative. Keto B'stro has a detox-friendly grain-free oatmeal as well!


Ingredients


For one serving of prepared “Oatmeal”

  • ½ cup 2 Tbsp chia seeds

  • ½ cup 2 Tbsp golden flax meal

  • ½ cup finely shredded unsweetened coconut

  • 1 ½ Tbsp ground cinnamon

  • ½ cup hot water

  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut, walnut or cashew milk

  • Natural sweetener to taste (Coconut Nectar or Stevia works)

Instructions


  • Combine the chia seed, golden flax meal, unsweetened coconut, and cinnamon in an airtight container.

  • Scoop out ½ cup of “oatmeal” in a serving bowl and keep the rest stored in the airtight container. Store in freezer for optimal "freshness".

  • Pour ½ cup of water over the “oatmeal” mixture and let sit for 3-5 minutes.

  • Add sweetener (to taste) and 2 Tbsp of cream into the bowl and stir to combine.

  • Toppers (optional): ¼ Cup fruit of choice; Toasted coconut; Slivered nuts or seeds


Plain Jane will do but that gets old fast! And the last thing you want to do is "burn-out" on a healthy meal option right out of the gate!


Suggestion- MIX IT UP! Just by adding a few different ingredients, you can create a whole new party in your mouth!
