A high fiber coconut low carb porridge that’s easy to make on the stove top or in an electric pressure cooker. It’s a perfect hot keto cereal.
It’s been so chilly in the morning here in Southern New England. That’s why I decided to rework my low carb oatmeal recipe.
Although I named that recipe “oatmeal” it really should be called “no-oatmeal” since there’s no oatmeal in it. It’s actually a mock oatmeal cereal made with coconut.
This low carb porridge recipe is a modified version of the no-oatmeal hot cereal. I added in some spices and cooked the mix in the Instant Pot.
If you look at the macro data, the carbs in the cereal do seem high. But, most of those carbs are from fiber so the net carb count per serving is only five grams.
To cut back on the carbs, you can reduce the amount of psyllium husk used. I add it to make the coconut porridge thick. But, if you don’t mind a thinner cereal, you can use a smaller amount.
I enjoy eating hot cereal so this low carb porridge really hit the spot on these cold winter mornings. And, I like that I can pre-make it and just heat up a serving in the microwave.
Don’t have an Instant Pot or other electric pressure cooker? No worries. I’ve also included directions for making this coconut porridge on the stove top.
The reason I added in some vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg is because a reader commented that it made my no-oatmeal cereal taste better. And that same reader stirred in low carb maple flavored syrup.
If you want some maple flavoring in this low carb porridge, you can add in a little maple extract in with the vanilla extract. I do like maple flavor so I’m going to try that next time.
For those that prefer a cold low carb cereal, I’ve got an easy muesli cereal recipe that’s quick to make. I do bake it like granola just because I find it gives the cereal a better crunch.
Maybe you want to change up your hot cereal over the winter. My friend Kim has a fantastic recipe for almond flour porridge if you aren’t into coconut.
Do you enjoy hot cereal on cold mornings? What’s your go-to breakfast during the winter?
