I took a little break from creating recipes, because, well - pregnancy.

But now that I’m able to look at vegetables again without getting nauseous, I thought it was time to start making gut-healing recipes again.

As I write this, my husband and I are on a plane to Seattle for a few weeks of work-cation on the West Coast.

Thankfully, there are so many gluten-free, Paleo options where we’ll be visiting that I wasn’t too concerned about finding good, safe food on our trip.

But, I know that I feel my best when I’m able to start my day with a big breakfast containing a lot of protein. And I also knew that this could be more difficult when we’re living out of a hotel room and not wanting to take the time to eat breakfast out every morning.

So, I decided to create my own, travel-ready breakfast that I could enjoy while away from the comfort of my own kitchen.

This Paleo Protein Overnight “Oats” recipe is a hearty breakfast that can easily be made into a quick meal on the go while on vacation, or even on the way out the door for work in the morning.

I combined ground nuts, with hemp, flax, and chia seeds for a protein and healthy fat packed breakfast - the two macronutrients that will keep you feeling full longer and your blood sugar stable throughout the day.

Just add nut milk, let the mixture sit overnight, and top with all your favorite breakfast toppings, and you’re ready to go!

I currently have a huge bag of this in my suitcase, and I’m so excited for breakfast tomorrow to enjoy it!

Paleo Protein Overnight “Oats”


  • 3 cups mixed soft nuts (I used cashews, walnuts, and pecans)

  • 1 cup ground hemp seeds

  • 1 /2 cup ground flax seeds

  • 1/2 cup ground chia seeds

  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon

  • 1 tsp sea salt


  • Pulse nuts in a food processor until finely ground and pour into a large bowl.

  • If not already ground, use a coffee grinder to grind the hemp, chia, and flax seeds and combine with the nut mixture.

  • Add the cinnamon and salt and mix well.

  • Store in a mason jar in the refrigerator for longest shelf life.

To Eat:

  • Combine 1/2 cup of the Overnight “Oats” with 1/2 cup of nut milk.

  • Store in the refrigerator overnight.

  • Top with your favorite breakfast toppings and enjoy - I love to use yogurt, berries, honey, coconut flakes, or cacao nibs with my Overnight “Oats”
