Noatmeal (Low-carb |Keto|Gluten Free)
This delicious simple low-carb porridge is made with hemp hearts and other grain-free ingredients. It has 5g of net carbs per serving and is full of healthy fats and fiber. It is a terrific low-cab breakfast alternative. Both my mom and I love this healthy breakfast cereal. We think it is better than traditional oatmeal.
This recipe is for one person, but you can easily scale it for any number of servings you like. Enjoy!
1/2 to 3/4 cups water (see Note)
2 tablespoons hemp hearts
2 tablespoons almond flour
2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
1 tablespoon golden flax seed meal
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1/4 teaspoon granulated stevia/erythritol blend or any kind of sweetener you like, to taste
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Stove Top Method: Add all ingredients except the vanilla to a small saucepan over low heat. Cook until thickened, stirring constantly, about 3 to 5 minutes; stir in the vanilla. Serve warm.
Microwave Method: Add all ingredients except the vanilla to a large cereal bowl that’s microwave-safe. Microwave on high until thickened, about 2 minutes; stir in the vanilla. Serve warm.
Water: You can use your favorite kind of milk instead, or just stir in a splash of your favorite kind of milk or cream once it’s cooked for a creamier texture.
Make Ahead: I like to premix all dry ingredients ahead of time. Then when you are read to make it, you pour it in a sauce pan. Add the water or milk, heat and add the vanilla at the end. It only takes a few minutes!
Mango Cardamom: Add 1 teaspoon ground cardamom to the noatmeal; top each bowl with 1/4 cup mango puree.
Maple Walnut: Top with 1 teaspoon maple syrup and 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts.
Blueberry Pie: Add 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon; stir in 1/3 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen) right before serving.
Cinnamon Brown Sugar: Add 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon; top with 1 pat grass-fed butter and 1/2 teaspoon coconut sugar.
Pina Colada: Top with 1/3 cup cubed fresh pineapple and 1 tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut.
