Whether you follow keto or paleo, oatmeal is all something we love on a brisk fall or winter morning. But sometimes, dietary restrictions just don’t allow for oats. The solution? Keto oatmeal with sautéed figs (that Amanda has included into her Dream Paleo Week) — sounds to die for, right? It’s packed full of fibre, protein, healthy fats, and let’s not forget, flavour. You may never want to go back to your traditional oats after trying this version by Amanda!
