Low Carb "Oatmeal" (w/No Oats!)

I can answer questions in this thread if you have any - am happy to be back at LCF!



Low Carb "Oatmeal" (Grain-Free Hot Cereal)

Serves one

Ingredients:
2 large, fresh eggs
1 Tablespoon cream
1/4 cup water
2 Tablespoons erythritol
1 Tablespoon unhulled sesame seeds (hulled is fine, too)
1/4 cup finely shredded unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup blanched sliced almonds
1/8-1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
A big pinch of fine sea salt
Tiny pinch of xanthan gum (optional)
NuNaturals stevia extract, to taste

Preparation:

Whisk together eggs in a bowl until thoroughly mixed, with no strings of yolk or white visible. Whisk in cream, erythritol, and water. In a separate bowl, crush sliced almonds with fingertips until they are broken into pieces the size of oatmeal flakes. Add sesame seeds, coconut, cinnamon, salt, and xanthan gum. Stir dry ingredients with a fork, and whisk into wet ingredients. Optional, but recommmended step: Cover bowl with plastic wrap, and let it sit overnight.

Transfer mixture to stovetop and cook over low heat until warm, whisking as the mixture warms up. Turn up the heat to medium-low and whisk constantly. Be careful not to turn up the heat too high, or else the eggs will scramble! Whisk mixture over stove constantly, until it starts to thicken. It will thicken rapidly once you reach a certain temperature. Once mixture is thick and uniform in consistency, remove pot from the heat, continuing to whisk. Thin out your "oatmeal" by whisking in a tablespoon or two of water for a thinner consistency. Taste and add a bit of stevia (a pinch of the powder, or a couple drops of the liquid) to sweeten your oatmeal, if necessary. Add optional toppings, such as berries, apple chunks, cocao nibs, or chopped pecans. Drizzle a little cream (watered down, if you prefer it to be more milk-like) over the top. Enjoy!

You can reheat your "oatmeal" by whisking in a little water (a tablespoon or two) and microwaving it for 20 seconds or so.

Reminds me of the McDonalds fruit and maple oatmeal commercial. I only have whole almonds or I would put this together tonight to have in the morning. I wonder if it would work if I chopped the almonds up?

I bought a second coffee grinder just for things like this. Just be careful not to grind too long or it'll become paste.

Ya but she is only crushing the sliced almonds into small pieces, so I don't think almond meal or flour would work the same, would it?

@metqa, I think it's such a small amount of coconut you might be able to just leave it out, or maybe use more almonds?

Thanks. I might try it anyway and if I can't handle it I could always give the coconut to my Mom. It's not so much the flavor, but the texture of coconut, I don't understand but I can't get past it most times. But if it makes this "oatmeal" the right texture it may just be right. dehydrated Coconut in candy or cake to me tastes like bits of corn husk, or shrimp shell. My instinct is to spit it out. Maybe finely ground coconut would work better than big flakes?

Well, I DO love my almonds, as Ginaaa knows! I'm not on nuts now anyway so I'll have to try this sometime in March and let you know.

Yes, I know allll about your love affair with almonds metqa lol I went looking for a sub for coconut and here is what i came up with so far...

As coconut is usually part of the dry mix, you could replace it with an equal amount of the flour used in the recipe; unprocessed bran; oats; ground nuts or even chopped dried fruit.

Hmm, maybe chopped pumpkin seeds or sesame seeds maybe. Hmm...

I've had a sort of 'cereal' by mixing sliced almonds, pumpkin seeds, flax, hemp, sesame, uh, some other stuff, all together. very crunchy indeed. I'm looking forward to trying this softer cereal some time.
