Super Simple – Overnight Flax Meal
It’s no secret that I’m not a morning person, not what so ever. So finding a way to have my breakfast already done and waiting for me would be a huge help to keep me in a good mood. Or, as good as it could get in the AM.
There has been quite a craze around overnight oatmeal lately. Sadly, living a low carb lifestyle has kept grains like oats far away from my reach. But I hate feeling like I’m missing out on something so I intended to make my very own overnight “oatmeal” with a few new twists to make it low carb.
As I’m sure you guessed, the major change was removing the oats and finding a suitable replacement, flax meal. I was a bit apprehensive but the texture was still fairly creamy with just the right amount of thickness.
This breakfast treat will literally prepare itself. You’ll just need to mix a few ingredients in a mason jar, or any sealable container. The flax meal absorbs some of the liquids, making it fairly similar to pudding.
There’s absolutely no cooking necessary but you could easily warm it up for a porridge like dish. I decided to leave mine as is and eat it nice and cold. It filled my large mason jar so I was able to save half for the following morning, which is why I based the nutrition estimates off two servings.
This recipe was created to be very flexible. You can easily play with this low carb breakfast recipe to make it your own by using the main ingredients: flax meal, almond milk, and yogurt.
If you want you can add more or less raspberries, or maybe use blueberries instead if your craving something like my low carb blueberry muffins. Or leave out the protein powder and add more sweetener. Have fun and make it your own!
