We need a lot more vegan keto recipes that are easy to make with ingredients you can get at pretty much any supermarket. For this reason, I've been trying to expand my keto recipe repertoire as much as I possibly can. We need options, so here is a delicious Fruity Pomegranate Keto Noatmeal, a perfect breakfast option.
A lot of people are concerned about taking upon a vegan ketogenic diet because they feel their options are going to be very limited. I can see where that fear comes from. The ketogenic diet is quite restrictive and when we add the vegan component to it it can feel even more constraining. But there are always options, you can check out our vegan keto recipes for a bit of inspiration.
The key here is to get creative and to use the ingredients allowed in a vegan keto diet in ways you hadn't before. It can be a daunting task especially when you are busy with, well life. The last thing we want to do is ruin our meal when we have little time and a big appetite.
Once again, I do the experimenting so you can fully dive into veganism or a vegan keto diet. And for this recipe, I did my research and found two things. First I found out that pomegranate is one of the few fruits you can have on a keto diet. It is super low-carb but packed with nutrients and that's exactly what we are after.
Secondly, since I was on the lookout for a breakfast recipe I somehow stumbled upon the concept of noatmeal. Which I am now in love with. You get to enjoy the benefits of your regular oatmeal but without the oats. This means low-carb, perfect for a keto diet.
There are a few ways to make noatmeal. You will find many versions on the internet and to be honest, you can hardly go wrong. Most recipes will work, but depending on what you add is what benefits you'll get from it. My favourite noatmeal mix includes flaxseeds, hemp hearts chia seeds and peanut butter. And usually, I throw a scoop of Sunwarrior protein powder in there as well. I like using vegan protein powder in recipes other than smoothies to get an easy protein boost.
This noatmeal recipe could be made into a smoothie as well but sometimes I feel like chewing my food. There's a different sense of satisfaction when you enjoy your food bite by bite. You'll find this to be specially true with this recipe. The pomegranate seeds are like a little explosion of joy you do not want to miss on.
Now that you know what's in noatmeal I can go into the making. This is the best part because it is even easier than making regular oats. You have to mix all the noatmeal ingredients together and maybe let them sit for a minute until the texture gets a bit gunky. Once you get there, sprinkle the pomegranate seeds without shame nor restrain and enjoy!
