This low carb oatmeal is made possible by the superfood ingredient lupini flakes from Aviate Foods. When this company reached out to me and told me about these flakes, I was skeptical! A legume that was keto-friendly and tasted good? Something I could use to replace oatmeal, rice, beans, and pasta? Why wasn’t everyone talking about this?
When I received the package, this was the first recipe I started playing with. Jeremy and I had really been missing a warm bowl of comforting oatmeal. After a week of playing with the ratios and ingredients, our favorite combination was this one.
Why Aviate Lupin Flakes?
All The Superfoods
This low carb oatmeal is packed full of nutritious superfoods to support your wellness and help you reach your goals. I’d like to take just a moment to highlight a few of these powerhouse ingredients:
The lupini bean is a low carb superfood in the same food family as chickpeas and lentils. It’s the perfect base for this keto superfood oatmeal. Each ¼ cup serving of lupini flakes has only 1 net carb making it the perfect replacement for oats, rice, pasta, couscous or lentils. Plus, it’s packed full of protein, fiber, and antioxidants to support your wellness.
We’ve taste tested multiple brands of lupin flakes and prefer the creamy flavor of Aviate Lupini Flakes. To purchase Aviate Lupini Flakes, click here and use coupon code TARAKETO20 to save 15% off your purchase.

Chia seeds are a low-calorie nutritional powerhouse that is packed full of fiber, ALA omega-3 fatty acids, quality protein, and antioxidants. They have been studied to aid with weight loss, reduce blood sugar levels, lower chronic inflammation, improve bone health, lower the risk of heart disease, and help with feelings of satiety.

If you’re a regular to my blog, you know by now I’m a big fan of using cinnamon because of the health benefits it brings to the body. I’ll shake a little into my morning cup of coffee or tea and use it anywhere I can in recipes.
The best type of cinnamon to use is ceylon or “True” cinnamon because the cassia variety contains coumarin which can prove to be harmful in large doses. Most cinnamon we purchase is this cassia variety, so if you’re going to use a lot of it, invest in the Ceylon Cinnamon instead. Click here to learn more about the health benefits of cinnamon.
Pumpkin seeds, also known as pepitas, are packed full of antioxidants and healthy fats. They are one of the best natural sources of magnesium which most of us are deficient in.
Magnesium is an essential nutrient for the body involved in over 600 chemical reactions including regulating blood sugar levels, creating energy, nervous system regulation, forming and maintaining healthy bones, controlling blood pressure, and reducing heart disease risk. Pepitas are a delicious addition to this keto superfood oatmeal.
