Flaxseed Oatmeal is an easy low carb meal to start the day.
- ¼ cups Nuts, your choice
- ¼ cups Flaxseed flour
- 1 cup Milk, dairy or non-dairy
- 1 tbsp Cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons Softer or as desired, more or less to taste
Measure walnuts and flaxseed meal (or whole flaxseed) and add to a blender or food processor. Spin about 30 seconds until a coarse meal or flour is reached.
Add the flaxseed flour base to a saucepan. Add the milk, cinnamon and sweetener of your choice and simmer over low heat for 3-5 minutes. This will cook and thicken quickly! Don’t walk away.
Adjust the consistency as needed to suit your taste. I use 3/4 cup milk, but add more liquid to achieve the consistency you desire. You can also use water instead of milk!
Microwave option: follow step one, but instead of adding it to a saucepan, add the ground nut and seed mixture and all other ingredients to a bowl. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir and add liquid as needed, microwave in 30 second increments until desired consistency is reached.
