Hemp hearts oatmeal keto

 

You are probably wondering why using hemp hearts in porridge and not rolled oats. So, let me answer all your questions below.

Is porridge keto?

No, regular porridge is not keto-friendly. A classic porridge recipe is made of high-carb cereal, usually rolled oats or instant oats.

While oat is a healthy whole-grain cereal for many people, it won’t fit on a keto diet.

Rolled oats contain 56 grams of net carbs per 100 grams, so a tiny amount of this cereal will quickly spike your blood sugar level and take you out of ketosis.

This is without mentioning the often added sugar you find in oatmeal recipes from whole milk and sweeteners.

Can you eat porridge on a keto diet?

No, you can’t eat a regular porridge recipe made of oat and milk. One serving of a classic porridge recipe, 1/4 cup cooked oatmeal in milk, contains about 20 grams of net carbs.

It means it will reach your daily carbs allowance in one meal. However, there are plenty of options to make keto-friendly porridge, using keto flours, seeds, and nuts like keto coconut flour porridge or this keto oatmeal hemp heart recipe.

Keto porridge ingredients

To make a creamy keto porridge recipe with a similar oatmeal texture, you need a combination few easy keto ingredients.

  • Hemp hearts – also known as hemp seeds, unhulled works the best.
  • Ground golden flax meal – to add a sticky texture to your porridge. You can use brown or golden ground flax seeds. I personally like golden flax meal because it doesn’t have much flavor. Some people find brown flax meal bitter and refer to it as a fishy flavor, so I won’t recommend this option if you are new to keto.
  • Chia seeds – this adds a gooey, sticky oatmeal texture to this hemp hearts oatmeal keto recipe. You can use white or black chia seeds. Both are the same.
  • Unsweetened shredded coconut – this adds a chewy texture like oatmeal.
  • Erythritol 0r a few drops of stevia to sweeten the porridge.
  • Almond butter – peanut butter – this adds a creamy texture to your keto oatmeal recipe. Note that almond butter contains fewer carbs, and it makes the recipe grain-free and paleo-friendly.
  • Unsweetened almond milk or unsweetened coconut milk.

Optional add-ons

You can play with flavor and add many ingredients into your porridge, like:

  • Vanilla extract – optional, but it adds a lovely flavor to the recipe.
  • Ground cinnamon – optional, but cinnamon is a great spice to add to a sugar-free diet as it helps stabilize blood sugar levels.
  • MCT oil powder – mine as a hint of vanilla flavor. It adds fat to my bowl and a delicious vanilla flavor.
  • Protein powder – don’t add more than 1 teaspoon, or the recipe will be very dry, or you will have to increase the liquid in the recipe.

How to serve your hemp heart oatmeal?

This is a great keto vegan breakfast recipe, delicious on its own or topped with a few keto-approved toppings. My favorite options are:

  • Nuts – the best low-carb nuts on a ketogenic diet are pecans, macadamia, almonds, coconut. Chop 1 tablespoon of these nuts to add crunch to your bowl.
  • Sugar-free syrup – I love maple-flavored syrup with pecan or chocolate syrup with coconut.
  • Keto fruits – like boysenberries, raspberries, blueberries.

How to cook hemp hearts like oatmeal?

You don’t need fancy tools like an instant pot to cook hemp porridge. This is the easiest keto breakfast recipe cooked in 3 minutes in a saucepan or 1 minute in the microwave. Let me share both options below.

Keto hemp heart oatmeal

Hemp oatmeal in the saucepan

This is my favorite option because you can control the texture.

First, add all the dry ingredients to a saucepan, stir well to combine. Then, whisk in liquid ingredients and place the saucepan on the stove over medium heat.

Stir constantly with a spoon until bubbles forms on the side. Keep cooking and stirring for 3-4 minutes. The seeds will absorb the liquid in the saucepan and thicken.

Finally, when the oatmeal texture suits you, transfer to a bowl and let sit for 2-3 minutes to steam out.

Microwave option

In a tall and wide microwave-safe bowl, stir all the dry ingredients. Whisk in the liquid and place the bowl in the center of the microwave.

Microwave on high power 800W for 1 minute. Remove the bowl from the microwave, stir, and if your oatmeal is not dry enough, return to the microwave by 20 seconds burst until it reaches your favorite texture.

Sit for 2-3 minutes before eating and adding toppings.

    Thanks so much for this recipe, I made it for breakfast this morning and love it. So nice to have something other than eggs which I find too rich sometimes.

    Hi Carine
    That was amazing! So nice to have porridge as a choice for breakfast. I used cow’s milk and it was fab.
    If I double up the recipe and save half for the next day do you think it’ll microwave ok?
    Regards

  4. Bonjour,

    Je suis une fan de vos recette. J’ai un problème avec le système unitaire métrique qui ne s’affiche pas. Est-ce que c’est que chez moi ou est-ce un problème général? Merci pour toutes vos superbes recettes.

    • Oh come on, Lucille. Almond milk isn’t really “milk”. Veggie burgers aren’t really “burgers”. Etc., etc, etc. Surely anyone perusing a Keto blog would understand that some people following a specific diet might want foods not normally possible on that diet and therefore calling a recipe “breakfast dish that is like oatmeal but is not oatmeal because it does not contains oats but contains hemp seeds instead” isn’t necessary.

    • That’s why the recipe is called Keto hemp heart ‘oatmeal’. Oatmeal refer to the texture and keto clearly implies that there is no grain or oats in the recipe. Oat is not keto friendly and can’t be use on a keto diet. You will see these kind of food denomination many times in the food industry like vegan egg, vegan butter this product actually don’t contains any butter or eggs. Enjoy

  5. I’m excited to try this recipe! I see that the nutritional panel does not include the toppings but does it include the optional MCT Oil powder?

    • No, the nutrition panel doesn’t include the optional ingredients, so it doesn’t include the MCT oil powder but this doesn’t add carbs, its pure fat. I always prefer to share the nutrition for the plain recipe and then everyone can play with toppings based on their macros. Enjoy!
