Admit it: You browse the many, many Pinterest boards dedicated to overnight oats looking for a quick breakfast that’s Paleo-friendly. If so, this list is for you.
There are several Paleo-approved ways to replicate the creamy, dreamy texture of overnight oats. And none of them require any extra effort. From coconut flakes to flaxseed meal to the magic of chia, we’ve compiled all the ways Paleo dieters can enjoy overnight ‘no-oats.’
Beyond grain replacements, we’ve also listed many ways to mix up your morning bowl (or jar) of no-oats. They’ll keep you from boredom for a very long time.
If you’re in need of a stick-to-your-ribs hearty breakfast, try an almond butter version. Or go tropical with kiwi, raspberry, and mint. Have dessert for breakfast with refined, sugar-free chocolate pudding. Or keep it basic with a simple Paleo porridge recipe. Whatever you do, enjoy the fact that Paleo no-oats can be just as versatile as their oat counterparts.
