When I was younger, oatmeal raisin cookies were one of my favorites, and as we all know, some things never change.
My mother had a special recipe for sugar oatmeal cookies, much like your mother or grandmother, perhaps also your friend’s or neighbor’s mother or grandmother. And if you’re fortunate, they’ll give it to you as well! Naturally, adopting a low-carb diet causes certain adjustments. The raisins had to be eliminated first. What about the oats, though?
DOES OATMEAL FIT THE KETO DIET?
No, is the response.
Because oats are whole grains, they are abundant in carbohydrates. The USDA estimates that 12g of carbohydrates are present in one serving of cooked oats (portion size 100g, oats cooked in water). Uncooked rolled oats weigh 100g, or around 2/3 cup, and have a staggering 55 net carbohydrates per 100g.
You are capable of math.
