If a bowl of oatmeal is what’s standing between you and all the benefits of a ketogenic diet, this warm, comforting porridge is for you.
This porridge is a nutrition powerhouse with over 15 grams of protein per serving. It’s also a rich source of essential omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids with, as made here, a perfect one-to-one ratio at 8.6 grams of each.
Don’t think you have to make it just like it’s made here, though – adjust the ratios to fit your palate and what’s in your cupboard. I also love to add a tablespoon or two of coconut flour or desiccated coconut in place of some of the almond flour – or in addition. Psyllium husk is another potentially nice addition.
Don’t worry if you don’t have all the ingredients. I make my noatmeal differently every time and it’s always delicious.
Toppings are another way to customize and make this porridge yours. I love it with berries, coconut cream, nut butter, cacao nibs, or my latest chia seed jam.
As an added bonus, the ingredients can be combined in advance for easy meal-prep, travel and fast meals on the go – all you need to do is tip the seeds and powders into a bowl and add boiling water when you’re ready to eat.
- 2 Tbs hemp hearts (about 21g)
- 2 Tbs flax seeds (14g)
- 2 Tbs chia seeds (20g)
- 1 Tbs almond flour (7g)
- 1 Tbs cacao or cocoa powder (6g)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- sweetener to taste (stevia, monkfruit or erythritol)
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir in approximately 3/4 cups hot water. Let sit 2-3 minutes.
- Stir and add additional water, if desired, until preferred consistency is reached.
This was SO filling and satisfying!!!! If I wanted to add some blueberries, can I sub out the almond flour? How can I adjust ? Thank you Maggie!!! Definitely a winner!!!!
Thank you so much! You can adjust all the ingredients to your preference. Leave out the almond flour, leave out the coconut flour, different proportions, whatever. Most of the time these days I just use ground flax seeds and hot water. It’s really all you need, the rest is bonus.
