Eggnog No Oats

Eggnog No Oats is a Holiday makeover of my classic No Oats. Overnight No Oats was created as a low-carb alternative to overnight oatmeal.

I have been wearing a continuous glucose monitor for over two years now. One of the things that became apparent to me almost immediately was that the carb content in oatmeal is very high in relation to its protein content. So high in fact, that even when combined with protein, I still get massive blood sugar spikes. With blood sugar spikes I get chest pain and feel jittery and then of course I will have a blood sugar crash an hour later and am hungry again.

So, unfortunately, oatmeal is a definite no-go for me, it’s just not worth the blood sugar roller coaster and the chest pain. Given I can’t eat traditional overnight oats, I wanted to create something like overnight oats that could be prepped the night before, stored in the refrigerator overnight, and enjoyed in the morning. That is how Overnight No Oats was born.

Just in time for the holidays, I created Eggnog No Oats so you can kickstart your day with the festive flavors of the season and not have to worry about blood sugar imbalances. They are perfect for instilling a bit of holiday cheer into your morning. Though not limited to just breakfast, these no-oats make a great snack too. Feel free to top the no oats with your favorite breakfast toppings whether it be nuts, seeds, fruit (fresh or frozen are good) coconut flakes, or whatever else you like. If you prefer sweeter oats you can drizzle a touch of maple or keto syrup over them

If you love these Eggnog No Oats, you will love these other no-oat options too; Pumpkin Spice No Oats, Matcha No Oats With A Chocolate Magic Shell, and this recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup No Oats. You can also make a big batch of the no oats and then portion individual servings to flavor as you like.

Ingredients

  • Hemp hearts – Hemp hearts add protein and healthy fats to these no oats.
  • Ground flax – Ground flax adds loads of fiber.
  • Chia seeds – Use chia seeds or basil seeds for more protein and healthy fats.
  • Goat whey protein – Even more protein with protein powder. Use a vegan vanilla protein powder as a substitute if you don’t have goat when protein on hand.
  • Spices – I added cinnamon and cardamom for the seasonal flavor.
  • Eggnog  – Try my easy homemade “Eggnog”) or use Malk brand which contains minimal ingredients and is lightly sweetened with maple syrup.
