Keto Grain Free Oatmeal
Yield 1 cup Oatmeal
1/2 cup hemp hearts
2/3 cup full-fat organic coconut milk
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt
Toppings (optional) :
A handful of berries
Step 1: Add all ingredients into glass container and stir until well combined. Keep sealed and place in fridge overnight or for at least 8 hours.
Step 2: Divide "oats" into two bowls and add little more coconut milk, if desired. Add toppings and enjoy!
Optional: For a warm and comforting serving of "oats," you can gently heat the mixture up on the stovetop before serving. This will make it less chunky, as the coconut milk will become thinner.
*Optional toppings are not included in the recipe macros.

These grain free breakfast bowls are a total win. Just soak overnight and add a splash more milk in the morning before consuming. I prefer this recipe with liquid stevia and for those sensitive to corn, liquid stevia is also the best substitute, otherwise erythritol or monk fruit is also another substitute to use.
You can switch up the flavor of the recipe by using a different flavors liquid stevia, like chocolate, pumpkin spice, toffee etc. You can also add more protein to the bowl by adding in 1 or 2 scoops of Collagen or Bone Broth protein powder, just be sure to add more milk when doing so.
Dr Jockers Comments:
This keto grain free oatmeal recipe tastes great and is full of anti-inflammatory and fat-burning ingredients. Many people miss the comfort of a homemade oatmeal when they are on a low-carb diet and this recipe is a great alternative.
Coconut milk provides healthy medium chain fats that stimulate fat burning. The hemp hearts and chia seeds provide protein, healthy fats, prebiotic fiber, B vitamins and key minerals such as magnesium and zinc. I like to add in 2 scoops of collagen or bone broth protein to provide key amino acids that support the gut lining, muscles, joints, skin, hair and nails. The extra protein also makes this more satiating.
To give this the same warm comforting appeal as traditional oatmeal, it is best to warm up the coconut milk on the stove top before serving. This will make the oatmeal less thick as the coconut fats will go from solid to liquid but it will be warm and nurturing. This is especially nice in the cold weather months. If you don’t normally eat breakfast, you can also have this as dish for lunch, dinner or a dessert.
