Creamy Keto Oatmeal

Creamy Keto Oatmeal recipe | Ketoship

We all know that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day, but when you’re following the keto diet, it can be tough to find healthy options that don’t all taste the same. After all, there’s only so many eggs you can eat before you get sick of them!

I don’t know about you, but one of the things I love the most on a cold winter morning (it’s freezing here in London) is a delicious, warming bowl of oatmeal. Or at least it was, until its high carbohydrate contents seemingly excluded it from my diet forever (sob!)… That is, until I came up with this gorgeous, low-carb treat of a breakfast dish.

By combining two different types of nuts, flaxseeds and creamy coconut milk, you get a bowl of deliciousness that tastes almost exactly like the real thing. Treat yourself to this when the cravings for a heavy, carb-fest of a breakfast become too much to bear!

The recipe

Makes: 2 servings.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts
  • 1/4 cup flaxseeds
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 2/3 cup almond milk
  • 8-10 drops liquid stevia (or more, to taste)
  • Sugar-free vanilla extract

  3. While the oatmeal is cooking, place the blueberries in a small saucepan with a couple of tablespoons of water. Cook over a medium heat until blueberries have broken down and turned into a jelly.Creamy Keto Oatmeal recipe | Ketoship
