Do you love oatmeal, cream of wheat, grits, or other hot cereals? There’s no need to avoid them on the keto diet! Here’s a great list of keto “noatmeal” low carb porridge recipes you’re sure to love along with some great topping ideas!
Is oatmeal OK on a keto diet?
The short answer is no, oatmeal is not okay on the keto diet. Oatmeal is made of rolled oats, which are a grain and full of carbs.
Luckily, there are plenty of popular keto “oatmeal” (or “noatmeal”–get it? No oatmeal?) recipes available that are healthier and–in my humble opinion–way tastier.

It’s hard to tell just from the photos what each noatmeal version is made of. I thought it would be nice for readers to be able to tell what the main ingredients are of each keto hot cereal version in this list.
So after each description, you’ll see the word “Base:” followed by the main ingredients. How convenient is that!
