Cream of Not-Wheat
One of the things I miss a bit about low-carb eating is hot cereal.
I like hot food. I like hot cereal. I miss oatmeal.
But the oatmeal makes me feel oogie now. I eat it and feel bloated.
I love cream of wheat.
But again, while wheat doesn’t make me feel particularly bad, the calories are high.
Alternatives are flax… But I understand it’s kind of slimy if you try to make a hot cereal out of it.
Enter an idea I had…
Coconut flour! I already love it, it’s high fiber, low carb, low cal.
So I had a little experiment this morning in making cream of not-wheat… And it was yummy!
I put a little too much pumpkin pie spice, so it was not a total success, but definitely worth another shot.
I think I will try making it with almond milk instead of water, maybe.
But I have a warm belly full of cereal for about 200 calories and 6 net carbs.
