Keto Almond Oatmeal

24 ratings

This hot Keto breakfast porridge makes a great low carb cereal alternative to traditional carb heavy oats. This easy Keto breakfast is simple to prepare and ready in only a matter of minutes. This makes a deliciously warming start to the day, perfect served with a Keto coffee.

How to Make Keto Oatmeal

Using low carb flours is a great way to create your own Keto compliant oatmeal. We have used ground almonds and ground flaxseed as the base of our hot breakfast cereal. The ground almonds and flax are gently simmered with sweet cinnamon, almond milk and a low carb maple syrup. We have also added a generous helping of coconut oil for those all important Keto fats and to add extra creaminess. Once the oatmeal is cooked it is topped with freshly sliced strawberries.

Keto Oatmeal Tips

We have used a low carb maple flavored syrup to add sweetness to our oatmeal. You may swap this for your preference in low carb sweetener if desired. The basic oatmeal recipe serves as a great base for adapting and adjusting to your tastes. Why not add a little pumpkin spice? Or a dash of unsweetened cocoa powder for a chocolatey breakfast treat! Be sure to adjust your macros for any changes made.

Recipe Steps

steps 4

10 min

  • Step 1

    Add the ground almonds, flax and cinnamon to a small saucepan. Stir everything together well to combine. You may omit the cinnamon or add an alternative flavoring such as cocoa powder at this point if desired.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Add the unsweetened almond milk to the saucepan. Stir well, mixing the almond mixture together with the milk. Set over a low/medium heat and bring up to a simmer. You may use an alternative Keto friendly plant based milk if you wish.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Once gently simmering, add the maple flavored syrup and the coconut oil. Stir well, blending the syrup into the breakfast cereal and melting the oil. Continue to cook gently for 2-3 minutes stirring often. The cereal should be hot through and thickening as oatmeal would. If you would prefer a thinner oatmeal, you can add more almond milk as desired.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Whilst the oatmeal is cooking, thinly slice the strawberry lengthwise. Once cooked, taste the oatmeal and adjust the sweetness if required. Divide the hot cereal between two serving bowls. Top each bowl with half of the sliced strawberry pieces. Optionally you may drizzle over a little more syrup or a sprinkle of cinnamon to serve. Serve hot.

    Not very filling. More like a porridge than oatmeal

      Isn’t porridge and oatmeal the same thing?

    Great winter breakfast, or a warm up after snowshoeing! I switched out the flax seed for organic super seeds (a mix of chia, flaxseed meal and hulled hemp seeds - no change in macros

      Nice way to change it up from chia porridge all the time, hubby loved it!

        It's pretty tasty. I subbed out MCT oil for the coconut oil because I'm not a huge fan of coconut flavored things, and a couple of blackberries for the strawberries bc that's what I had. I would probably liken this to Cream of Wheat rather than oatmeal, though.

          Hi, the brand Nutiva refined coconut oil has no flavor whatsoever and I use it in a so much of my cooking. It is organic as well. If you decide to use it be sure you get it refined.

            I haven't made this, but I have used Hemp Hearts to my Noatmeal recipe. I love their nutty taste

            How do you grind up the almonds? Or can you buy almonds already ground?

              Make sure if you buy that it says ground almonds. Someone in the comments said it's almond flour, but there is a difference.

                I would add unflavored Greek yogart no added sugar for extra protein,or a soft boiled egg, but not to the oatmeal.

                Can almond flour be used? If not do the almonds need to be blanched and skins removed before grinding?

                  You might not want to use almond flour here. In almond flour the shell is removed so that it is soft like real flour. Ground almonds has the shell included for a rougher texture to resemble grains.
