Have you ever made overnight oats?

They couldn’t be easier!

All you need are gluten-free rolled outs and a milk of choice.

I tend to use dairy-free milk for these and my preference is coconut milk (sweetened but not flavored), though any milk you love will work fine!

A note about oats: Oats are a naturally gluten-free grain but they are contaminated via cross contact with wheat, barley and rye during the growing and processing process. So definitely look for gluten free oats, preferably certified gluten free oats.

But there’s more…. back when my son was first diagnosed with celiac disease, gluten-free oats were mostly grown via a process known as purity protocol. In recent years, gluten-free oats have also been processed through a manufacturing process known as “sorting”. There is much controversy about sorting versus purity protocol oats. For more information I’m linking articles by GF Jules and by Gluten-Free Watchdog.

Also, some people with celiac don’t tolerate oats so please do what ‘s best for you and your health.

For those interested, we use gluten-free oats from GF Harvest (amazon affiliate link), grown through purity protocol.

Back to the Overnight Oats, all I do is partially fill a mason jar, pour milk over the oats to just cover them and then refrigerate overnight.

When I take off the cap in the morning, they look like this.

Then I either add the oats to a bowl or add the toppings directly to the jar, depending on the day and when/where I’m eating them.

For toppings, all you need is a touch of maple syrup, an apple, diced and some cinnamon.

Feel free to add any additional toppings you love!

You could add a spoonful of nut or see butter or you could add chopped walnuts or pecans.

Either way, feel free to play around with the toppings or the milk you add to get it just right for you.

Hope you love it as much as we do!
