One of my favorite breakfasts has always been cream of wheat. I love the smooth texture and the mild flavor. I love the way a pat of butter pools in the center. I love the way it fills me up at breakfast time. What I don’t love, to be honest, is the carbs.

This morning it was getting chillier by the minute. That arctic front was poised to blow through my part of Texas and I can tell you I wasn’t thrilled. I love warmth – with no thyroid cold hurts me in a way I can’t describe. I was not looking forward to the big chill – that’s for sure. In fact, my dining area has a fireplace and within five minutes of walking in the door from taking the kids to school I had a fire going. It was necessary for my well being!

I was craving cream of wheat something fierce but I didn’t want to cave to the carbs. What to do?

This high fiber low carb breakfast cereal did the trick. Its a combination of flax meal, coconut flour, and almond meal with a little sweetener and maple flavoring added. Once it’s cooked you can add butter, cream, and a little sweetener plus a dusting of cinnamon. So good!

The Coconut Flour and almond give it a natural sweetness but I did add a little xylitol because I like things to be sweet. (That’s an affiiliate link – when you buy the blog gets a small commission which helps keep it up and running. Thanks!)  My only caveat about this is to eat it quickly. As it cools it gets goopy and gloppy. If you’ve been looking for a low carb, high fiber breakfast look no further. This is it!

  1. YUM. I’ve got the ingredients and will be enjoying this tomorrow for breakfast.

    • What did you think?

  2. This sounds wonderful, a great exchange when eggs have had their run. I too have no thyroid (hashimoto’s) and we’re about the same age. I love the cold, however – this front coming through tonight is delightful! (I’m in Fort Worth.)

    Thank you for your recipes, I’ll definitely try several of them!

    • The cold front is amazing!

  3. Just found your sight and decided to try it out . was looking for a change in low carb choices to get me going again and take away the “same old things” I had fallen prey to, so thank you. I tried this and it was like a bowl of sun shine, heavenly, yum. can’t wait to try more.

    • Thank you so much!

  4. I buy a ground golden flax at Costco that does not require refrigeration. So, I multiplied this recipe and put it all in a canister with the instructions to add equal parts of this with liquid (we used vanilla almond milk) and microwave.

    That canister disappeared FAST. Cool weather has come to Michigan and I will have to make this again this week.

    Thanks for all you do.

    I actually found this recipe when I came looking for the cauliflower hot breakfast porridge one. I did a big batch of that, too and my kids were very happy to scoop some out of the container in the fridge and heat it up with some butter. Wonderful stuff when kids will eat it!

    • SO awesome to hear!

  5. Does this expand when liquid is added because it doesnt seem like very much

    • Quite a lot but different appetites will be satisfied with different amounts I suppose.

  6. This is SO delicious. I added a bit of raw cocoa for some extra fiber and am loving it. New favorite brekkie. Thanks!

    • so glad you liked it

  7. Can Hemp Seed meal be substituted for flax seed meal?

  8. Snowing and cold outside so tried this for the first time. It is so good! I could eat this everyday.
