Can you eat oatmeal on a keto diet? If your goal is to actually get into nutritional ketosis, then probably not.
If you’re following a low-carb ketogenic diet, you may miss warming up to a cozy bowl of oatmeal in the morning. You might be wondering, "What is the lowest carb oatmeal that I can have?" We have some good news for you — while regular oatmeal is high in carbs, “noatmeal“ makes a great stand in for the real thing.
What Is “noatmeal” (or keto oatmeal)? Noatmeal is a grain-free bowl full of goodness that makes an ideal keto breakfast or snack. It contains much less carbs and much more performance fats than regular oatmeal, thanks to ingredients like seeds and coconut milk, but still gives you all the familiar flavor you’re looking for.
Thanks to inclusion of Ancient Nutrition Plant Protein powder, our overnight noatmeal recipe also packs a healthy protein punch from sprouted seeds and authentic berry flavor, with no added sugar, gritty texture or bitter aftertaste.
Can you eat hemp seeds on keto? Yep — and there’s good reason to, since they provide performance fats, fiber and protein, which is exactly why they’re included in this keto porridge recipe.
