When you feel like it’s an oatmeal
kind of morning

A pot of oatmeal was a staple when I was growing up, and then it became part of my own family when Pedro would make hot cereals all the time. I never did master the cooking time or the choosing of the right pot to make that perfect morning oatmeal, but I sure did love eating it with heaps and heaps of brown sugar. Going Keto seemed like I had to give up cereals altogether, then I discovered hot cereal and Keto oatmeal recipes. None are like real oatmeal but they are a great substitute and don’t require finicky cooking times and magical oatmeal pots. Again, this is a flexible recipe, add or drop ingredients that appeal to you. I’m not rigid with the measuring, I’m after a great taste and consistency. I mashed up a number of recipes I’ve tried, you can add more liquid or dry ingredients to your liking.
