KETO OATMEAL is the low carb alternative to traditional oatmeal! It’s made with hemp hearts instead of oats for a hearty, filling, breakfast that is the perfect way to start your day with 6 net carbs per serving!
I can’t tell you how many times I get asked if oatmeal is low carb.
Unfortunately, the answer is no. Oats are a a grain and they’re not low carb.
But, not to worry! I’ve been experimenting with hemp hearts to create a low carb oatmeal alternative and I’ve nailed it, you guys!
This ‘noatmeal’ is a new fan favorite in our house. My kids love it, Chad asks for it just about every day, and I’ve been having a blast trying out all my different topping ideas!
But today? Today I’m sharing my FAVORITE way to enjoy this keto noatmeal recipe!

Quick Tips for Making Noatmeal:
Noatmeal is just as easy as traditional oatmeal! You’ll toss all of the ingredients in a sauce pan, stir to combine, and cook until thickened. It only takes a few minutes to make!
Your noatmeal may look a little thinner than you’d like, but it does thicken a bit more after you take it off the heat. You can always use more or less liquid to get the consistency that you prefer.
Toppings for my favorite keto oatmeal bowl:
You can really dress up your noatmel anyway you would traditional oatmeal, but my favorite toppings are below!
- Greek Yogurt
- Almond Butter
We absolutely love the combination of fruit and almond butter over the noatmeal paired with the creamy tang of Greek yogurt.
This breakfast packs a punch and keeps me full until lunch time with no problem.
What are hemp hearts?
Hemp hearts (or hemp seeds) are the seed of the hemp plant.
Hemp hearts are considered a superfood and are a great addition to your diet.
Not to worry…they won’t cause you to fail a drug test or make you feel like you’ve taken drugs, though the shells can contain trace amounts of THC (less than .03%).
Hemp hearts are a great source of protein, high in fat and fiber, and packed with vitamins and minerals.
They’re also heart-healthy!
