What Is Noatmeal?

A mashup of “no” and “oatmeal,” noatmeal provides a Primal/paleo, keto, and grain-free way to enjoy a bowl of warm porridge with a chewy texture that’s similar to oatmeal but without the oats. Noatmeal typically includes finely chopped nuts, seeds, unsweetened shredded coconut, and possibly protein powder mixed with milk or plant-based milk.

For example, this Primal noatmeal recipe uses a soaked date and vanilla whey protein powder to sweeten the raw soaked nuts and buzzes together in a food processor for a quick paleo noatmeal for busy mornings. Heat it up on the stove with a little extra coconut milk or milk of your choice if you prefer a warm noatmeal.

Sadie’s recipe for noatmeal uses Primal Kitchen Vanilla Coconut Collagen, which has a slightly sweet flavor from coconut milk powder, monk fruit, and vanilla extracts, three different types of seeds simmered in full-fat coconut milk, and suggests stewed or fresh blueberries for flavor and color.

How Do You Make Noatmeal?

Sadie’s recipe for paleo noatmeal includes chia seeds, flaxseeds, and hemp seeds cooked gently with water, unsweetened coconut milk, and shredded coconut plus Primal Kitchen Vanilla Coconut Collagen Fuel.

Noatmeal with Blueberries and Collagen Recipe

Time: 25 minutes

Servings: 1


  • 3/4 cup fresh blueberries
  • 3/4 cup full-fat coconut milk or almond milk (unsweetened)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 scoops Primal Kitchen Vanilla Collagen Fuel
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 Tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp. ground golden flaxseed
  • 1 Tbsp. raw shelled hemp seeds or hemp hearts
  • Optional toppings: more fresh blueberries, almond butter, cacao nibs, chopped nuts


  • Pour the fresh blueberries into a small saucepan and set over medium-high heat. Let the blueberries cook for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until they begin releasing their juices and become soft and vibrant in color. Set aside.*
  • While the blueberries cook, pour the coconut milk and water into a separate saucepan and turn to medium-high heat. Once it is hot, whisk in the protein powder, coconut, and seeds. Turn the heat down to medium-low. Cook the mixture for approximately 10 minutes, whisking every 30 seconds, or until it has a thick consistency similar to oatmeal.
  • Pour the noatmeal into a bowl, top with the cooked blueberries, add any desired toppings, and serve.

*Cook’s Tip: If you’re in a time crunch, skip this step and just cook the blueberries with the rest of the noatmeal ingredients.

Is Noatmeal Keto?

It can be! Keto noatmeal can vary from a Primal, paleo, or even keto vegan noatmeal because it likely uses smaller portions of nuts or seeds, does not typically include dried fruit or very much fresh fruit as a topping, and would use a keto-friendly sweetener such as monk fruit, stevia, erythritol, or xylitol. Most ketogenic diets emphasize keeping total daily carb intake between 20–50 grams per day.

Tips for making keto noatmeal:

  1. Use a keto-friendly protein powder if you plan to add it.
  2. Use a keto-friendly sweetener if you plan to add it. Natural sweeteners like honey, maple syrup, dates, and other dried fruits aren’t typically advised on a keto diet.
  3. You can add additional keto-friendly fats to your noatmeal, such as coconut oil or MCT oil, extra virgin avocado, or olive oil for a savory noatmeal, ghee, or a little all-natural nut butter.
  4. Use pre-soaked and drained raw nuts or seeds. Be mindful of portion sizes to keep carbs in check, especially if you plan to add fruit or a combo of various nuts and seeds to your keto noatmeal. For example, according to Cronometer:
  • ¼ cup of chopped almonds contains 7 grams of carbs (3 grams of net carbs)
  • ¼ cup of chopped pecans contains 3.8 grams of carbs (1.2 grams of net carbs)
  • ¼ cup of chopped macadamia nuts contains 3.8 grams of carbs (1.4 grams of net carbs)
  • ¼ cup of chopped walnuts contains 4 grams of carbs (2 grams of net carbs)
  • ¼ cup of hulled hemp seeds contains 3.5 grams of carbs (1.9 grams of net carbs)
  • ¼ cup of chia seeds contains 16.8 grams of carbs (3 grams of net carbs)
  • ¼ cup of chopped flax seeds contains 8.1 grams of carbs (0.5 grams of net carbs)

More Noatmeal Cooking (and No-Cook) Tips

Warm stovetop oatmeal or oats mixed with water or milk and quickly zapped in the microwave provide an easy, customizable breakfast that can suit nearly any flavor preference. The same holds true for noatmeal. Just as oatmeal can be eaten cold or without cooking—overnight oats remain a foodie trend for good reason—noatmeal can be eaten cold, warm, or at room temperature.

Sadie’s noatmeal recipe includes a stovetop cooking method, but you can also make noatmeal in the microwave. Here’s how:

  1. We don’t recommend microwaving the blueberries—unless you would enjoy scrubbing bits of exploded blueberries off the inside of your microwave. Plan to top your noatmeal with fresh blueberries after it cooks.
  2. Whisk the collagen into the coconut milk and water. Add the shredded coconut and seeds to the liquid and pour into a microwave-safe bowl.
  3. Microwave on high for about 2 minutes, or until thickened. Serve warm with blueberries on top.

If you want to make overnight noatmeal, either make the blueberry sauce ahead of time on the stove or plan to serve the overnight noatmeal topped with fresh blueberries. Follow the rest of these steps:

  1. Whisk the collagen into the coconut milk and water plus an additional 2 tablespoons of liquid (use water or coconut milk). Add the shredded coconut and seeds to the liquid and pour into a medium-sized mason jar with a resealable lid or another airtight container.
  2. Refrigerate the noatmeal overnight.
  3. Remove the next morning and enjoy topped with blueberries and any other optional toppings such as almond butter, cacao nibs, chopped nuts, etc.
