NoOatmeal - Grain Free Hot Cereal Recipe

I made this delicious new recipe for NoOatmeal - a grain free hot cereal.  For those of you on a low carb diet, you like me may miss your oatmeal.  There are times, where I have found it very difficult to stay on the low carb diet, because I miss my carbs "a lot!"  I miss oatmeal "a lot!"  I found the inspiration for this recipe at Real Food RN, and if you are trying to low carb it, this is a great recipe to try.

My doctor put me on a Ketogenic Diet in December for health reasons.  It is not a high protein diet, it is a high fat / moderate protein / low carb diet. So far it is working.  When I went for my lab work in March, all of my levels had gone into the normal range, but I still need to be careful.  I do eat regular food and carbs from time to time, but I try to stick to the Ketogenic diet.

In the meantime, it has been very interesting trying to figure out how to eat.  My diet is high in healthy fats such as coconut oil, avocados, and nuts approximately 100 grams.  I eat chicken, fish, beef, pork, and lamb about 80 grams a day ( I avoid shellfish since it is high in triglycerides). I eat approximately 20 grams of carbs a day, which comes mostly from vegetables.

One of the reasons I have not been writing a lot, is because I have been trying to figure out how to eat in this new and different way.  This recipe for NoOatmeal will work for a low carb or paleo diet also, it is really delicious and full of healthy fats and fiber.

NoOatmeal - Grain Free Hot Cereal Recipe


2 cups pecans
2 cups walnuts
6 TB Flax Seeds
6 TB Chia Seeds
6 TB Hemp Hearts


Put the nuts, seeds, and hemp hearts in a high speed blender or food processor. (I have a Ninja blender which works great for this, its blades are not like a regular blender.)  If you don't have one, then use your food processor.  Pulse all of it on and off, but be careful, not turn your
NoOatmeal Ingredients into nut butter.  You just want it to be ground up, but not stuck together.  

Put it into a container and store in your refrigerator.

Yields about 5 cups of NoOatmeal
7.9 carbs (g)
7.1 Dietary Fiber (g)
.8 Net Carbs (g)
35.1 Fat (g)
8.1 Protein (g)

NoOatmeal Ingredients:

1/2 cup Milk, Cream, Coconut milk, or Almond milk (unsweetened)
1/2 cup NoOatmeal
anything else you eat with your NoOatmeal

NoOatmeal Cooking Directions:

Bring the milk or whatever liquid you are using to a boil.  Add the NoOatmeal and cook for 1 minute.  Let sit for 5 minutes until thickened.  You can adjust the thickness to your liking by adding a little more or less NoOatmeal to the pan.

I add butter and stevia to my NoOatmeal, but you can add anything that you want, just as you would regular oatmeal.  To keep it low carb, you may want to restrict fruit or sugar.

I would love to hear what you think about the recipe.  I hope that you like it as much as I do. So send me your comments.

Have a great weekend.
