Making low carb simple
- In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the chia seeds, sesame seeds, egg, heavy whipping cream, and salt. Set aside for 2–3 minutes.
- Heat the olive oil or butter (until melted), in a small pan over medium heat.
- Add the seed mixture, and stir together for about 2-3 minutes, or until the porridge thickens.
- For serving, top with the melted butter, or perhaps with our low-carb raspberry jam.
Imagine your favorite variation. You can swap out the sesame seeds for a different type of seed, coconut flour or chopped nuts? Invent your signature version. And sprinkle on your fave topping, too... shredded coconut, anyone?
My own experience when first changing over to LCHF 10 months ago was I found a recipe of cream, oatmeal, nuts and berries very filling and it did ease my break from 40 years of sugar addiction until my palate got used to the rewards of keto food. I haven't eaten oatmeal porridge for 7 months now I savour black pudding and eggs soft cooked in 50 grams of butter.
The recommendation to keep the butter separate from the whipped cream in this porridge is interesting as it gives the porridge a unique flavour and makes it an easy way to eat chia seeds. I will be trying this out.
It's 0 gram. I guess Keto "Porridge" would be a better name. ;)
I added crushed walnuts and some rasberrys. Very good. A keeper.
Oats is still carbs with 100g = 64 and chia are not at 100g = 5.
I use chia and hemp seeds and top with some little toasted almond flakes. It's my favourite through the autumn and winter, especially as there's an endless supply of cream in our house (My dad makes his own butter).
For those who say it comes out like scrambled egg, that means you rushed it and your egg separated. You really need to be careful not to let it boil.
There is a switch at the top of the recipe to convert to metric.
Ending up with scrambled
Eggs your getting it too hot. It’s just like making a custard. Do not boil it or get it anywhere near boiling, you want it to thicken but not boil. Continually stir sometime fast you want nice smooth porridge not scrambled eggs. Really tasty The Bomb with melted butter !
Thank you 🙏

We have not tested this recipe making it the night before. Given that this recipe thickens as it sits, it may become unpleasantly thick in texture.
