It seems like overnight oats have taken over my Pinterest feed lately, but I’m not complaining! There’s something about the hearty texture and wholesome flavor of oats that really appeals to me. After testing out a few recipe variations I’m finally happy with my modified gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free recipe. I’ve practically had them for breakfast everyday for the past two weeks. Once you’ve tried it, you will be hooked too!
Mornings can be hectic, especially if you tend to hit the snooze button or have kids to send off to school. Overnight oats are one of the easiest gluten free breakfast recipes that the whole family will enjoy. And with all the benefits from oats, its a convenient breakfast you won’t feel guilty about serving to your kids.
Whether you are making one serving or four, it only takes a few minutes to throw together the night before. Here is everything you need:
Ingredients (1 serving):
1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill Certified Gluten Free Quick Oats
1 cup almond or coconut milk unsweetened
1/2 mashed banana
1 tablespoon local organic honey
2 tablespoons almond butter or your favorite nut butter
1 tablespoon hemp seeds
Pro Tip: In order to avoid the potential gluten contamination be sure to purchase certified gluten free oats.
Before you got to bed, grab a resealable glass jar or tupperware, toss everything in, give it a stir, toss it in the fridge and forget about it until morning. The best part is, gluten free overnight oats taste good warm or refrigerated, so you can just grab a spoon and go!
On a side note, I’ve tried old fashioned gluten free rolled oats and gluten free quick oats in this recipe. Both will work just fine, but I prefer the quick oats because they seem to absorb the wet ingredients better.
