Have you been missing oatmeal or porridge on a ketogenic diet? I know I like a warm comfort food breakfast and this pecan pie keto oatmeal is definitely comfort food. This isn’t some plain old boring oatmeal either, the pecan pie flavours in this keto oatmeal will have you wanting to make this all winter long. The best part is this keto oatmeal is ready in just a few minutes, so perfect on a cold winter’s morning.
Pecan Pie Keto Oatmeal
In the summer, I was really enjoying chia pudding for breakfast, but once the weather cooled down, I no longer felt like the cold chia pudding and wanted something more warming. This keto oatmeal is the perfect winter warmer breakfast and if you love pecan pie you will love this.
Rolled oats and oatmeal are pretty high in carbohydrates, so we generally avoid eating them. But you can still enjoy a warm cereal breakfast by substituting in some nuts and seeds in place of the oats. We use golden flax meal and hemp seeds in this recipe and they really thicken up to give you that oatmeal or porridge texture.
Guess what I think is one of the best things about a ketogenic diet? Breakfast, yes breakfast! No longer forced to have the ‘healthy ‘ boring cereal option every day, there are now so many options. For a start you have eggs in all their various ways including scrambles, boiled, poached, fried and omelettes and even frittatas. Of course you need a side of bacon with those eggs.
Don’t feel like something hot? Okay, how about a chia pudding, some keto granola, or a fat bomb smoothie. Want something hot but not eggs? Our favourite breakfast muffin, or a bulletproof bone broth or creamy hot chocolate, or this delicious pecan pie keto oatmeal. See what I mean, breakfast isn’t hard on keto.

Hemp seeds have only recently become legally available to buy in Australia, and it was very exciting to have a new low carb ingredient to experiment with. They are actually very versatile and can be used in a rocket fuel latte, in our keto granola, in this keto oatmeal recipe or you can make your own hemp milk or hemp flour even!
They are a great low carb option, rich in omega 3,6 & 9 fatty acids and are high in plant-based protein. Hemp is known as a natural appetite suppressant and to help reduce sugar cravings. Also great for your digestive health as they contain both soluble and insoluble fibre.
Flax seeds (also known as linseeds) as the richest plant source of omega 3 fatty acid, which is great for optimum cellular function and to reduce inflammation in the body. They can be eaten whole or ground, but we prefer ground in this recipe as you can then absorb more of the fibre and benefits of the seed. In general we prefer the golden flax seeds and gold flax meal as it has a milder flavour.
They are also a versatile ingredient and are used as a popular egg replacement in baking. Simply mix 1 tablespoon of flax meal with 2-3 tablespoons of water and you have a flax egg.
Sukrin Gold in Australia
We love to use Sukrin sweeteners in our keto baking and this keto oatmeal. We have tried loads of the sweeteners available on the market and have found this to be the best tasting option with no bitter after taste. Our family and friends, who are not keto, love our keto baking too when it is made with Sukrin. Also, it is made with our preferred sweeteners, a combination of stevia glycosides and erythritol.
Our favourites from the Sukrin products are;
- Sukrin 1 – which substitutes one for one for white sugar
- Sukrin Gold – which substitutes one for one for brown sugar
- Sukrin Melis – which substitutes one for one for icing or powdered sugar
- Sukrin Gold Fibre Syrup – this reminds me of golden syrup that we use in baking in Australia. It tastes delicious and is great for making any caramel recipes
Australians! Don’t worry, the Sukrin products are available for us too. If you are interested check out Sukrin Australia.
