Low Carb Oatmeal
Low carb oatmeal is my take on what Australians call porridge. Porridge is usually made from oats and water or milk. Since switching to the ketogenic diet, porridge has been out of the low carb breakfast cereals. This new low carb oatmeal recipe will make your mornings easy again!
Ketogenic Porridge (Keto Oatmeal) is a super quick breakfast that tastes delicious.
I used to eat porridge all the time before I went ketogenic. It was the most cost efficient meal I could make whilst at University with little money to spare.
My grandparents owned a farm in central Queensland called Charlton in Clermont. My brothers, sister and I would go there as kids, not only to see our grandparents, but to also ride motorbikes and round up cattle.
I always remember my grandma’s porridge. For breakfast, instead of breakfast cereals, she would make us all this wonderfully warm bowl of porridge that was slightly salty, and mostly milky and delicious. She would make the best porridge.
We would come home about 3 kgs heavier after spending a week on the farm. As a kid, I wouldn’t care and would easily work it off, but I always remember my Dad and Step Mum complaining about how much weight they had put on… carbs, They will get you in the end!

Porridge is usually a dish made by boiling ground, crushed, or chopped starchy plants – typically oats – in water or milk. It is often cooked or served with flavourings such as sugar, honey, etc. to make a sweet dish, or mixed with spices, vegetables, etc.
Oats are the main component of oatmeal, so it makes oatmeal hard to make as a Keto recipe blogger. Low carb breakfast cereals are recipes that must contain a lot of fibre, so that the net carb content of the meal is very low.

Fibre is very important on a ketogenic diet. Due to the high fat, low carb nature of the lifestyle, you have to actively make it a priority to ensure fibre is included for your digestion health.
