  • Combine. Add low carb milk (1 cup), protein powder (1/2 scoop), cinnamon (1 teaspoon), salt (a pinch) and nutmeg (1/2 teaspoon) to a small saucepan and whisk to combine.
  • Add nuts/seeds + simmer. Add flaxseed (1 tablespoon), chia seeds (1 tablespoon), and shredded coconut (1 tablespoon), stir to combine. Bring your oatmeal to a gentle simmer, and continue cooking until the oatmeal has reached your desired consistency (I usually cook it for about 10 minutes).
  • Adjust. Taste and adjust sweetness to your liking. Serve warm, with toppings (Note 5), and enjoy!


  1. Milk. Unsweetened + light almond or light coconut milk are great.
  2. Protein powder is optional, but I always add it to better balance the macros of this dish.
  3. Protein powder nutrition/flavor. A bad tasting protein powder will ruin the flavor of your oatmeal. I love ISO Pure vanilla, and always steer clear of pea protein powders, as I don't like the flavor. Always check the label of your protein to ensure it doesn't contain added carbs.
  4. Sweetener amount will vary depending on how sweet you like your oatmeal, and if you include protein powder. With the protein powder, I always add 2 tablespoons Swerve/Lakanto.
  5. Topping ideas. Chopped nuts, sliced fruit, shredded + unsweetened coconut, low carb chocolate, and/or low carb syrup.
  6. Nutritional information doesn’t include additional toppings you may add. This recipe has 1 serving:
