Gluten Free Overnight Oats

Gluten Free Overnight Oats

If you have a busy morning ahead of you and you want to ensure you eat something nutritious and wholesome for breakfast, then look no further than this Gluten Free Overnight Oats recipe. This is a fabulous recipe for people who have lots on in the morning because you get everything ready the night before.  My Gluten Free Overnight Oats recipe is filling and full of goodness. This recipe is vegan and also free from dairy, sugar and preservatives.

I really enjoy making this for my family because I know exactly what it contains, unlike store bought breakfast cereals. You can really jazz up this recipe by adding lots of amazing toppings. Try some fresh seasonal fruit, some goji berries, coconut flakes, cacao nibs, extra chia seeds or some LSA (linseed, sunflower and almond mix). I love to drizzle everything with a little bit of maple syrup or some raw honey (a non-vegan option).

You can also take your Gluten Free Overnight Oats with you and eat them out and about. After you’ve mixed all of the ingredients together and let the mixture sit for 10 minutes on the bench, just spoon the mixture evenly between two glass mason jars. Pop the jars in the fridge overnight and then remove them from the fridge in the morning to add all of your toppings before heading out the door. This is a great way to ensure that you’re nourishing your body at breakfast time even on those days when you’re super busy.

Gluten Free Overnight Oats

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of gluten free organic oats
  • 1 cup of filtered water
  • 1/2 cup of gluten free, non-dairy, unsweetened milk (e.g. almond milk, soy milk or rice milk)
  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of organic ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of organic or 100% pure maple syrup

To serve

  • Seasonal fresh fruit, e.g. one sliced banana or one Granny Smith apple, grated
  • A generous sprinkle (about 1 tablespoon) of my Homemade LSA
  • A small handful of goji berries
  • A drizzle or organic or 100% pure maple syrup, or some raw honey (a non-vegan option)

Method

  1. Place all of the ingredients into a small mixing bowl and mix well. Leave the mixture on the bench for 10 minutes and then come back and stir it again.
  2. Cover the overnight oats mixture and place it in the fridge overnight to allow the oats and chia seeds to soak up all of the liquid.
  3. In the morning, remove the overnight oats mixture from the fridge and stir again. Divide the mixture evenly between two breakfast bowls. Top your Gluten Free Overnight Oats with some sliced banana or grated apple, and any other toppings you fancy. To finish, drizzle the overnight oats with a little bit of maple syrup or raw honey for extra sweetness. Serve immediately.
