Low Carb Oatmeal

It’s ready in minutes and you can top with your favorite toppings.
Yes, this low carb oatmeal is oat-free. We wanted to keep it high in protien, and moderately high in fat and leave out the carbs you get from oats.
This low carb oatmeal is one of a handful of recipes that we use coconut flour in. It’s not that we don’t like coconut flour, we just prefer to use almond flour. The coconut flour adds a nice hint of sweetness to this keto oatmeal.

Is Oatmeal Ok for Keto?
Oats are mostly carbs (with a little fiber) so they’re not considered a ketogenic food and not suitable for a ketogenic diet. We like the idea of oats but we don’t care for the extra carbs so we made a keto oatmeal. We hope you like it as much as we do.

Can I use cream or milk instead of water in this low carb oatmeal?
Yes, you can use heaving cream or milk in this low carb oatmeal recipe. You can also use a dairy-free milk if you need to keep it dairy-free.

For the “instant” version, heat your milk to a boil, pour it over your dry ingredients, stir and let it sit for up to 5 minutes.
