Keto vegan overnight oats, made without oats at all, in a matter of minutes! This creamy, 4-ingredient breakfast is grain-free, gluten-free, and so delicious. It’s a perfectly portable, make-ahead option, too!

Keto Vegan Overnight Oats, Made without Oats in Minutes!

I confess to misleading all of you.

This is not a recipe for oats.

Nor is it made overnight.

But I had to grab your attention. I decided “grain-free oats” might generate some curiosity. 

I hope that I was right, because this lovely little recipe is everything that overnight oats are, catered to those who eschew, or limit grains. It is also designed for anyone (umm, me) who is too imprudent to make breakfast the night before (it’s that million item to-do list…). This grain-free version comes together in 5 minutes. Boom.

So here’s to a new favorite go-to breakfast recipe!

What Makes these Keto Vegan Overnight Oats Nutritious

These 5-minute “oats” are:

  • Vegan
  • Gluten-free
  • Nut-free
  • Paleo
  • Keto
  • Super high-fiber (10.2 g! You’ll feel full for hours)
  • Very low in sugar (1.9 g)

The essential recipe comprises 4 simple ingredients: toasted shredded coconut (unsweetened and chopped fine), flaxseed meal (or ground/crushed chia seeds), coconut flour, and the nondairy milk of your choosing. 

Toast the Coconut for Maximum Flavor

Toasting the coconut is key to the oat-like resemblance of this recipe.

It could not be simpler, even if you are still sleepy: toss 2 tablespoons of shredded coconut in a small skillet set over medium-high heat, and then stir for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown and fragrant. Transfer to a cutting board and finely chop.

How to Make the Oat-Free Oats

Next, combine the coconut with a bit of flaxseed meal, coconut flour and nondairy milk. Let stand for 2 to 3 minutes to thicken–and done!

If that sounds too complicated first thing in the morning, not a worry, because this can be an “overnight” recipe if you so choose! Make 1 or several batches ahead of time, scoop into small mason jars or other containers, and then grab and go in the morning. Easy peasy!

Add Your Favorite Mix-Ins & Toppings

Top the overnight oats with your favorite fresh berries or chopped fruit, more nondairy milk, and any sweetener that you like.

Any and all variations in flavor (e.g., vanilla, citrus zest, spices) and toppings (e.g., nut buttter, toasted seeds, more toasted coconut, chocolate chips) are strongly encouraged.

Happy eating!

Best "oatmeal" I've tried, thank you! Not goopy or slimy like all the other keto oatmeals! Added cream, butter, cinnamon, slided almonds and blueberries. Delicious!

Wonderful, Livi! All of your additions sound DIVINE!

I've made this as written, and also subbed sliced almonds for the coconut once, which I like even better. With some added protein powder, it makes a really filling breakfast! Great warm or cold.

Wonderful, Rae! I love the sound of your additions, too :)

Hello! This looks so good.. will have to try soon! But heads up also for your recipe experiment fun: there's also something called coconut protein by Carrington brand which I might try as swap for the flour just for upping protein... Also keto friendly I think. Not *as* absorbant as coconut flour but a close friend of it. Check it out! Though I do agree that the taste of coconut flour is just sooo magical on it's own. Just heads up for recipe creator fun/sharing purposes <3
