    It doesn't contain oatmeal, it's the chair seeds that swell and thicken to make porridge substitute.

    The tip is that you can variate as prefered so a tablespoon of oatmeal can be put in instead of the chia seeds.

    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.

    Made this in the morning today. It's quick to make and extremely filling. Nice break from usual eggs as it contains egg but doesn't taste eggy. Also sprinkled on some cinnamon.

    Hi B!

    It's 0 gram. I guess Keto "Porridge" would be a better name. ;)

    It doesn't contain oatmeal, it's the chair seeds that swell and thicken to make porridge substitute.

    Tried it this morning, it´s very tasty. But after one hour I´m hungry again :( Even if I took 50 g butter and a bulletproof coffee as side.

    Now 3 hours later I´m not hungry at all... Maybe I was only thinking I´m hungry, now I feel satisfied :)))

    I made this this afternoon. It tasted really good. If I want to make a double portion can I just double the ingredients? Thanks for the great recipe.

    Could this be made with canned coconut milk? I cannot have dairy and planned to substitute ghee (which I tolerate) for the butter but was looking for a good sub for the heavy cream.

    Be careful with the Heavy Whipping Cream, some creep up to 1g carb per Tablespoon which will end up driving higher than 3g carbs per serving. (according to USDA info)

    This is amazing and a great substitute for anyone who enjoys a warm porridge from time to time. I made one adjustment: I ground my seeds in a coffee grinder first, then proceeded as usual. I have diverticulosis, so, if I don't want to experience a flare up, I try to avoid any seeds or nuts, if possible. This turned out great! I will be making this again!

    This is very good. But that's not porridge... it's fried eggs with chia and sesame...

    I added crushed walnuts and some rasberrys. Very good. A keeper.
