This is the kind of breakfast that you do not expect to work because how can you make COOKED hot oats without, umm, oats?! Will it involve some kind of wizardry magic?
My dear internet friends, the answer to that is NOPE. No Harry potter shenanigans here.
Just kidding, you will (unless you don’t eat oats) because it’s cheesecake for breakfast. DUH. But you will not be one bit mad about switching it up for this low carb oatmeal recipe because, as they say, variety is the spice of life!
The secret magic? Chia seeds. Like in the chia seed oatmeal, it makes these no oats SO CREAMY.

Is oatmeal keto?
Because oatmeal is made primarily of oats, which are predominantly a source of carbs and is grain-based, they are not suitable for the keto diet.
Don’t worry though, this recipe is still totally allowing you to wake up to cozy, creamy “oat” goodness.
Oats for ALL I say! No one should be deprived of such breakfast heaven.
How to make Low Carb Keto Oatmeal
Making oatmeal without oats is actually one of the easiest recipes you will ever make in your life.
- Combine all the ingredients – almond flour, flax & chia seed, coconut flakes, salt, cinnamon, monkfruit, vanilla and milk in a medium pan and bring to a boil.
- Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium and cook until they JUST begin to thicken – about 1 minute. They thicken A LOT once cooled so don’t overcook or they get a not-so-yum texture.
- Top with ALL THE THINGS and eat up!
What to put on Low Carb Keto Oatmeal
If you’re looking for some good toppings or mix-ins, here are a few of my favorite:
- Roasted, diced nuts for a crunch
- Melted nut butter or coconut butter to make it SUPER creamy
- Sugar free chocolate chips. You might even think you’re waking up to dessert!
- You could even go savory and add in some cheese, avocado and a fried egg!
Do not knock that last one till you try it. I know sometimes you question my taste buds (watermelon curry I’m looking at you) but I pinky swear that savory oatmeal is SRSLY delicious.
How to Make Keto Oatmeal Ahead?
Make a big ol’ batch ahead of time and add a little almond milk to reheat it OR just make yourself a single-serve bowl of breakfast bliss each morning.

That depends on what toppings you add to your oatmeal! Feel free to add a handful of berries or ALL the healthy fats you desire! I recommend a generous drizzle of your favorite nut butter!
