This noatmeal, or keto oatmeal recipe, is among the healthiest and tastiest keto diet friendly foods. This particular recipe is a staple in our house. My kiddos wake up begging for chia seed oatmeal and a peanut butter pancake.
The healthiest oatmeal alternative
This recipe is made with superfoods, so it is more than just a tasty breakfast. This keto-friendly oatmeal won’t spike your blood sugar the way regular oatmeal will. It will also satiate you since it such a fibrous food, but also packed with a little protein and healthy omega-3 fats.
Ingredients for the keto-friendly oatmeal recipe
- Chia seed
- Flaxseed (ground)
- Peanut butter
- Monk fruit
- Vanilla extract
- Unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- *optional: frozen raspberries and unsweetened coconut flakes for topping
The ingredient list for keto oatmeal is short as you can see. There are many premade low carb oatmeal alternatives you can order online, but they are costly. Making your own noatmeal is a much more affordable alternative.
All you need to make the keto oatmeal are: 3 tablespoons of chia seed, 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed, 1/2 tablespoon of a low glycemic sweetener (like Lakanto) — or more depending on how sweet you like it, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, a cup of unsweetened almond milk, and a dollop of peanut butter.
If you’re not a peanut butter person, you could leave it out of the noatmeal and substitute it with a tablespoon of butter.

How to make keto oatmeal
The noatmeal is very quick to make! Just mix your chia seeds and ground flaxseed with a cup of unsweetened almond milk or water. Let the seeds sit for about a minute in the water until the chia seeds start to swell.
After the seeds start to absorb the liquid, pop it in the microwave for about 2 minutes. Then add in the monk fruit, peanut butter, and vanilla.
