So you’re on a low-carb diet, and the first thing you’re struggling with is breakfast. We don’t all have time to whip up a keto-diet friendly meal like bacon & eggs. We need breakfast, and we need it fast.

Surprisingly, ground flax seed cooks so similarly to oatmeal. While it’s not sweet at all, the texture is nearly perfect for a porridge. You can serve this sweet or savory, but we are pretty fond of the sweet variety. It’s made perfect with sweeteners, so don’t worry about the added sugar – there isn’t any!

Flax seeds are high in the fats you need to succeed on a low-carb/ketogenic diet, while also packing a bit of protein.

Customize it with any milk of your choosing. We used almond milk, but if you’re wanting more fats in your breakfast and can tolerate dairy, try it with a heavy cream for a truly decadent day-starter.

Servings: 1

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup ground flax seed
  • 1/3-3/4 cup milk of choice
  • 1-2 packs of sweetener
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Equipment

  • Microwave safe bowl

Method

  • Mix all of your ingredients into one bowl (add more or less milk for desired consistency).
  • Microwave for 30 seconds, mix again. That's it, that's all. ENJOY!
