Instead of the regular high carb oatmeal, we have one non-oatmeal recipe but still has the taste of the popular oatmeal. This small jar is full of healthy fats and protein which makes it a perfect suggestion for a lazy morning breakfast.
Low carb oatmeal is made from cocoa powder, flaxseed, chia seeds, grated coconut flakes and almond milk with a little bit of liquid sweetener.
We top this lovely treat with pieces of dark chocolate, some roasted peanuts, and cashews. As you can see, we use the right ingredients in the right amount to make this recipe as one good substitution for the regular oatmeal.
Chia seeds are rich in proteins, fats, fiber, polyphenols, etc. Food that contains fiber is associated with the power of satiety which is one good thing for people who try to lose some weight or to stay healthy.
Also, chia seeds are popular because of the high amount of omega fatty acids. These small seeds are so powerful. (*)
When it comes to flaxseeds, they are also good sources of omega fatty acids. Thanks to their very good nutritional profile, they can improve high blood pressure and insulin receptors in diabetic patients when used as a supplement. They contain lignans that are used as hormone substitutes in post-menopausal women. (*)
Feel free to make your oatmeal however you like. Add some cinnamon or peanut butter instead of roasted peanuts on top. Replace dark chocolate pieces with some melted chocolate. You have many choices and so many options to try.
Keto oatmeal would be even better if you store it in the fridge and use it for the next morning. Just add 2 more tbsp of almond milk. The recipe is for one person, but you can make as many servings as you like.
