A quick, simple, gluten free meal that you can take on-the-go!
Soaking your oats overnight can help make them easier to digest. I like the texture too!
Please keep in mind that a small portion of people with Celiac Disease still react to oats (even the gluten free ones) so watch your body for symptoms.
Not all oats are created equal, some are grown near gluten-containing grains and poorly separated.
I have had the best luck with Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Rolled Oats, maybe because they batch tests oats upon delivery, during production, and after packaging to ensure they contain less than 20 ppm of gluten.
Prep Time: 05 min
Cook Time: 8 hrs refrigeration
Total Time: 5 mins + 'set' time
Important Note: You can used frozen mixed fruit too (be sure it's GF and doesn't contain any flavor additives or preservatives as gluten can hide in those)
Glass container with lid
About 1/3 cup Gluten Free Rolled Oats (more if you usually eat a big breakfast)
Enough milk or dairy free milk to cover oats
1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
Fruit mix-ins or cinnamon (see suggestions below)
Add fruit to the bottom of your jar, then oats & honey/maple syrup.
Top with enough milk to cover the oats.
Cover with lid and let sit in fridge overnight.
Mix oats and eat cold. They are great warmed too, especially on a cold morning.
Blue berries, strawberries, banana, peaches, walnuts, sliced almonds, nut butter, leftover apple crisp, seeds, flax, get creative!
I love how easy this recipe is to customize. You can leave off nuts, if you have a peanut allergy. You can use coconut, cashew or almond milk if you have issues with dairy. You can add as much or as little of the mix-ins of your choice. With several small jars, you can even make each person in your house their very own using their favorite flavors.
