Blueberry Overnight Oatmeal Recipe
With blueberry season in full swing, I knew I had to add them to this classic overnight oatmeal.
Traditional overnight oatmeal (or even crockpot or instant pot oatmeal) is made with rolled oats and milk. My version is actually made without oats! Often referred to as ‘oatless oatmeal’ or ‘paleo oatmeal’, it is a low carb hot cereal option!
Can you eat oatmeal on keto?
Oatmeal, along with other grains, is not allowed on a ketogenic diet. They are too high in carbohydrates which would put anyone out of ketosis. Instead, there are other options to have ‘oatmeal’ on a keto diet.
Is there a keto friendly oatmeal
A keto diet oatmeal has been created here, and perfect to satisfy your oatmeal or hot cereal cravings, minus the carbs and grains!
Instead of rolled oats, a combination of chia seeds, flaxseed, and shredded coconut are combined to produce a thick, creamy and hearty texture.
Perfect hot or cold, it’s the best low carb cereal option, that also happens to be vegan, gluten free and sugar free!
