Peanut Butter and Chocolate Overnight "Oats"
I don't know why I put off making keto overnight oats. I've always loved chia seeds, but it is only recently when I've really begun to play around with hemp hearts (thank you Costco)!
I bought a huge bag of hemp hearts from Costco and have been having a BALL baking and cooking with them.
Here are a few hemp hearts recipes I've made recently:
Prior to keto, I used to LOVE eating oatmeal and it was something I really missed. Every morning I would make a big bowl and put a giant scoop of peanut butter right in the middle!
The lovely difference with keto overnight oats is that you don't need a big bowl. A small serving of this healthy fat breakfast will satisfy your tummy much longer than old school oatmeal.
The consistency is smooth and tastes delicious cold and doesn't even need to be warmed up.

Can you eat overnight oats on the keto diet?
Traditional oats, well not unless you practice cyclical keto (which I actually do). There are actually MANY benefits of cyclical keto, but that is another topic!
Now, can you have THESE overnight "oats"? YES! Why? Because they are not actually oats. The base is made from hemp hearts and chia seeds which are both perfectly keto.
Keto overnight "oats" are a perfect high fiber and delicious breakfast.

Do keto overnight oats need to actually soak overnight?
No, they do not. But you should at least soak them for 4 hours or so. They are the BEST if you just let them sit overnight though!
If you are in a jam and don't even have 4 hours, then I suggest you make this super fast and easy keto oatmeal recipe (and don't worry, no oats are used in that recipe either)!
What are the best toppings for overnight oats?
OOH - that is totally up to you, but I can give you ideas!
Keto Chocolate Chips
Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
My favorite toppings are almond slivers and unsweetened shredded coconut.
Wait for it.... MASON JARS!
Overnight Oat Flavors
The hemp hearts and chia seeds have a very subtle flavor. The nice thing about that is that you can dress it up in just about a million ways!
For this peanut butter and chocolate overnight oats recipe, I chose to use (can you guess?) peanut butter and chocolate!
They go SO nicely together and honestly, I never get to use my PB2 powder unless I make recipes this like! PB2 is perfect to use when you want the peanut butter flavor without having to work with the peanut butter consistency. Sometimes powder is what is needed!
There are so many options, so little time! Check out this lemon keto chia pudding! Another overnight version with a totally different flavor!
So there you have it! Make up a couple of jars for the family and have an instant, nutritious breakfast just waiting for you the next day!
