This low carb peanut butter “oatmeal” will keep you full until lunch and is only net carbs per serving!
So it’s been a full week back on track and I’m pretty happy with where I’m at right now… down 3.6 pounds! But I’ve come to realize that I just can’t have eggs for breakfast every.single.morning. And while pecans and cottage cheese are a tasty cereal substitute, sometimes I need something warm to remind me of oatmeal on this WOE.
That’s when I found a low carb oatmeal alternative. And I knew I had to recreate it! But after trying it the first time, I decided to alter it the second time I made it to fit my tastes a bit more. And boy did this hit the spot! Super filling and only 4 net carbs. Pretty darn good for a breakfast filled with fiber that keeps me full all morning long. And sometimes I add a tablespoon of peanut butter for even more peanut butter goodness!
Because I only had whole flax seeds, I had to ground them in my Ninja blender. It took a bit of blending but I finally got them down to the ground flax seed meal consistency you can purchase in store. AND? Cheaper!
