COOK TIME: —

Missing your oat-filled bowls of overnight oats? If so, you’re going to love this keto-friendly, low-carb, Paleo version! Made perfect with hulled hemp seeds (aka hemp hearts), these grain-free breakfast bowls are a total win in my book. Just soak the ingredients overnight, as you would with oats, and enjoy in the morning, adding an extra splash of milk before consuming. If you have pumpkin pie spice kicking around, feel free to replace the individual spices with ¾ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice.

⅓ cup (80 ml) milk (nondairy or regular), plus more for serving

⅓ cup (80 ml) brewed coffee (decaf or regular)
