Best Overnight Oats Recipe – Keto, Low Carb, LCHF, Gluten-free, Sugar-free

When I woke up this morning, the literal temperature was -23 degrees. With the wind chill, it’s colder than Antarctica. Gotta love a Chicago winter. As this is day two of our self-imposed quarantine, I’m starting to go a bit batty, so I’ll just keep cooking. And making messes. My poor husband, our chief dishwasher.

His constant slaving away after my whirlwind of pots and pans has me thinking about the upcoming Valentines holiday. Men are particularly hard to celebrate on this day: all the treats are geared towards women. He doesn’t want chocolates or a bunch of flowers.

Chocolate and raspberry meets breakfast in this keto-friendly seed porridge.

I think the best gift will be peace and quiet and a break from his litany of chores. I’m also thinking about resurrecting breakfast-in-bed. That fad seems to have disappeared, and it shouldn’t have. What could be better than a homemade muffin and coffee without ever leaving your cozy paradise?

With that in mind, I schemed up a Valentine’s Day breakfast-in-bed porridge, playing on a quintessentially holiday flavor combination: chocolate and raspberry. It’s sugar-free, grain-free, and fits into a keto or paleo diet. It’s even right for my vegetarian pals out there. I love a stick-to-your-ribs breakfast cereal, and with oatmeal on the “no fly” list, I often miss that option in the morning.

This porridge has wonderful textures from all the seeds, and creamy pudding-like texture, and awesome crunch factor from the toppings. Hopefully, you’ll agree that this is tasty enough and easy enough to make more than once a year.

A variety of crunch toppings adds even more fun! I opted for shredded coconut, sliced almonds, cocoa nibs, in addition to fresh raspberries.

How to Make Keto Overnight Oats

  • 1 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp powdered erythritol, Swerve
  • 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1/2 cup full fat coconut cream
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/3 cup fresh raspberries

Keto Breakfast Cereal Tips, Tricks, and Take-aways:

Adding an element of sweetness can be customized. I don’t want my porridge too sweet, so the ratios listed are for somewhat of a medium level. Feel free to adjust.

The base of this really could be adjusted for fun new flavor combinations. I’ve thought about a cinnamon chai with hazelnuts. Pumpkin pie? Feel free to cut out the chocolate and berries to try other options. If you do take out the cocoa powder, reduce the liquid just a smidge. The cocoa powder does thicken this. If you do try something, tell me! I want your delicious creations.

Don’t skimp on the resting time. You want to soak these seeds otherwise you’ll get less creamy and more crunchy. I don’t want to feel like I’m eating bird food.
