The Best Keto Overnight Oats

When you're craving oatmeal on a keto diet and want something chilled and delicious, this low carb overnight oats recipe is exactly what you need.

As I'm sure you know, traditional oats aren't keto friendly because they have too many carbs per serving, so these overnight keto oats are the perfect substitute. And, honestly, in a lot of ways, I think they're even better than the regular kind!

This keto overnight oats recipe is made with healthy, low carb coconut and almond flour, almond milk, hemp hearts, chia seeds, and golden flaxseed meal to get that perfect oatmeal taste and texture you've been looking for. 

In addition to being super low carb - with only 3 net carbs per serving - these oats are also packed with protein, fiber, and healthy fats for an all-around balanced breakfast.

And like "regular" overnight oats, there's no cooking or prep required!

But the great part about this keto overnight oats recipe is that there are endless ways to customize it. I've included a brief list down below of all my favorite ways to switch up these low carb overnight oats and keep breakfast exciting. We'll talk about that in a little bit though.

How To Make Keto Overnight Oats

So, there's exactly one step required to make this delicious and filling low carb overnight oats recipe.

And you probably already know what it is, but I'm going to tell you anyway. 

Now get out the ingredients, and let's make this healthy keto breakfast recipe!

Cinnamon, flaxseed, Chia seeds, almond milk, almond flour, coconut flour, and confectioner erythritol all in a glass jar.

Step 1: Mix All Ingredients

To start, mix the unsweetened almond milk, hemp hearts, coconut flour, blanched almond flour, chia seeds, golden flaxseed meal, confectioners Swerve, and cinnamon in a mason jar or other airtight container.

Then close the lid and let everything soak overnight in the refrigerator.

And that's literally it!

As I said, this recipe is super simple.

After just a few hours of chilling in your refrigerator, you will have one generous serving of these healthy and tasty overnight oats ready to go. 

Now, while these oats can easily be grabbed out of your fridge right as your dashing out the door, I like to take a minute and add toppings. This step is completely optional, but I find stirring in a little something extra makes eating these overnight oats even more enjoyable.

Your toppings can include anything that I've listed above or you can even just add a drizzle of sugar free maple syrup or caramel sauce for a little more flavor. Whatever suits your low carb diet and answers your cravings will do the trick here - add whatever you want!

How To Store Keto Overnight Oats

Now, if you'd like to make these keto oats for the whole family, or you just want enough oats to last you the next few days, you can make multiple jars of these oats.

And it's super easy to make a bunch of servings - all you need is more jars - or one big mason jar that can fit a few servings. With that said, I like to prepare enough individual jars to last me the whole week whenever I make these overnight keto oats.

Stored sealed in the glass jar - or airtight container - in the fridge the keto oats will stay good for up to 5 days.
