Skip the oatmeal on keto and go for almond flour keto “noatmeal”!

Oats may be generally considered NOT keto-friendly, but that doesn’t mean you have to skip what warm bowl of filling morning comfort!

This is why “noatmeal” was created. It’s exactly like it sounds. It’s “oatmeal” without the oats and can be made a LOT of ways, but is almost always grain free.

And try this super easy Chia Flax Noatmeal Creme Brulee–you can make it in the oven or Instant Pot!

This keto “noatmeal” is made from almond flour, so you get the health benefits of almonds, plus protein to keep you full all morning! Truly, this is one of the most filling breakfasts I’ve eaten.

Just like cream of wheat, with a bit of a flavorful tang from the sour cream–just enough to not be overpowering, but enough to make it not taste plain!

Is this a gluten free rommegrot noatmeal?

Yes! This is a completely gluten free porridge as there are no grains or grain products whatsoever in this hot cereal.

Konjac root as a keto thickener (glucomannan powder)?

Yes! Konjac root is the tuber of a mushroom that grows in parts of Asia. It’s such a great thickener that it’s even used as a gelatin substitute.

Because konjac root powder is grain free and zero net carbs, it’s perfect for the keto diet. It’s also thought to aid in weight loss.

    I miss my Cream of Wheat! what can I sub for the konjac powder?

      I’ve been meaning to experiment with xanthan gum for this recipe, but I haven’t yet. If you do, let me know! I love konjac root, though. There are claims it helps with weight loss, but I have no idea if those are founded or not.

    Can you freeze this recipe or divide the ingredients for 1 portion?

    • Jenn May 12, 2020 at 8:29 am - Reply

      I actually haven’t tried freezing this! You can definitely divide it, though. I’ve done it many times. Just be sure to watch it closer and whisk frequently so you don’t burn it.
