For the overnight-oats-obsessed, here's a variation you have got to try that's high in protein and lower in carbs! Instead of just using rolled oats, you throw in hemp hearts (raw shelled hemp seeds). One tablespoon offers 3.3 grams of protein and one gram of carbs, so this little jar packs in over 19 grams of protein for just over 32 grams of carbs!
Although hemp hearts are high in B vitamins, iron, magnesium, and manganese, they're not super high in fibre, which is why I added chia seeds into the jar, which also increases the omega-3s.
Don't worry — it'll still have that creamy, chewy texture you love since the hemp seeds only get slightly softer when soaked overnight. It's flavoured simply with maple syrup, cinnamon, and raisins, so feel free to sub the raisins for fresh fruit instead. This nutty overnight oats recipe is soon to become your new fave because not only does it taste delicious, but it also follows the perfect breakfast formula for weight loss.
For firmer raisins, mix raisins into your overnight oats the following day.
