What are Paleo Overnight Oats?
If you’re reading this and wondering what the heck are overnight oats? I’ll attempt to do them justice. Dried oats are soaked in milk with honey, maple syrup, or whatever sweetener you prefer and then topped with all the delicious toppings. In the morning, you wake up to a bowl of creamy magic.
As a nutritionist, I have clients who are always looking for healthy breakfasts that are filled with protein, healthy fats, and fiber. And so many people with requests for non-egg breakfasts that you can make ahead!! My go-to recommendation is usually different flavors of chia pudding, but I wanted to have another recipe in my arsenal. These low-carb overnight “oats” fit the bill!
Paleo Overnight Oats allow you to have all the amazing-ness without the grains! Nut butter? Sure. Extra crunch with almonds? Why not. All kinds of customizable options here.
Let’s get started!
How to make Paleo Overnight Oats:
To get that yummy texture of oatmeal, we’ll combine some simple ingredients. These happen to be nutrient dense with a fantastic combo of healthy fats, fiber and protein:
- chia seeds
- hemp seeds
- shredded coconut
- coconut flour
- dairy-free milk
- sweetener like maple syrup or honey
- chopped almonds
- berries (optional)
- nut butter (optional)
We’ll begin by combining the chia seeds, hemp seeds, shredded coconut, coconut flour in a bowl.
Dump in at least 1 cup of dairy-free milk of choice (add sweetener if you are using). I use homemade cashew milk. Give it a good stir, and let it sit in the fridge overnight or for at least 3 hours. The mixture will be a nice thick porridge when ready!
To enjoy, add an additional milk to the bowl and top with berries, extra nuts, and maybe even a drizzle of nut butter!
You can even heat up for a warmer “oatmeal like” bowl. So delicious and comforting!
