Vegan Keto Oatmeal with Cinnamon Spiced Berries

Good morning guys. If you’re looking for a grain and gluten free oats alternative, my vegan keto oatmeal is a winner. It’s high in protein and dairy free making it a great way to start the day.

Sugar free to keep your gut happy

Not only is it sugar free, it’s also unsweetened so perfect for those of you, who like me, like to keep your sugar intake low. Keeping your sugar intake down, including the healthier refined sugar free versions, helps keep the balance of healthy v unhealthy bacteria in your gut in check. It’s one of the key things I believe has kept my autoimmune condition in remission all these years.

Today I made a simple coulis out of fresh berries and added some ground cinnamon and vanilla as it’s turning autumn here in London so i’m craving more warming spices. Feel free to add some coconut honey, or erythritol/ swerve if you’re keto, if you prefer things a little sweeter.

This Keto Oatmeal is also paleo, vegan, grain and gluten free, gaps and whole30 friendly. Breakfast or pudding… which would you choose?
