Keto Overnight 'Oats'
Raise your hand if you love eating oats for breakfast! We definitely do! But if you’re following a keto or low carb diet, a hearty, warm bowl of oats just won’t work with your meal plan. Don’t let that keep you from eating what you enjoy most, and definitely, don’t let it become a snag in your meal prep ideas! We created this Keto Overnight ‘Oats’ recipe that has all the flavor and nutrition of your favorite bowl of oats- without the carbs!
What Makes These "Oats" Keto?
The primary keto adjustment in this overnight oats recipe is the swap of heart-healthy hemp hearts for traditional oats. Maybe you’ve seen them popping up in your local health food store lately, but what exactly are hemp hearts? Hemp hearts are technically the seed of the hemp plant. Yes, that hemp plant- but don’t worry! Hemp hearts come from a completely different variety of cannabis plants and are almost entirely devoid of THC. What you will experience is a wonderfully mild nutty flavor and a fantastic boost of essential fatty acids, minerals, and protein!
Substitutions and Alterations
Just like regular oats, this keto friendly, low carb overnight oats recipe can be customized with your favorite add-ins! If you’re a fan of sweet breakfasts, you could try adding any of the following: pumpkin seeds, ground flax, macadamia nuts or macadamia nut butter, pecans or pecan butter, coconut butter, coconut oil, coconut shavings, or almond butter. One of our favorite things about this meal prep idea is that it can also go savory! Try adding things like nutritional yeast, bacon, eggs, sausage, or avocado to give these overnight oats a savory breakfast spin.
Use the base of hemp hearts, almond milk, and chia seeds and then go to town on the rest! Now you have two keto-friendly overnight oats recipes that can satisfy your sweet or savory cravings!
