Isn’t that fabulous? The reason why I love this breakfast is that it’s REALLY quick and realistic for those of us who are on-the-go, but you don’t miss out on taste.

Overnight oats are something I look forward to as I’m falling asleep – I may have an unhealthy relationship with food, or maybe this is just THAT delicious of a gluten-free breakfast…I’ll let you make that judgment call.

Overnight Gluten-Free Oats

By November 18, 2012 Gluten-Free Recipes

I may have just created a gluten-free monster. Why? Because I just tried overnight oats for the first time and boy, oh boy are they tasty!!!

I had seen a picture of gluten-free overnight oats on Instagram this past week and thought to myself Why haven’t I done that before? Seeing that we have 2 bags of oats in our pantry, I figured now was the perfect time to try this simple breakfast out.

I used The Corner Kitchen’s recipe for Blueberry Overnight Oats, but made some slight changes because I either due to the fact that I didn’t have certain ingredients in the house.

Blueberry Overnight Oats

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup oats (I used Bob’s Red Mill, but you can use any brand of gluten-free oats)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup almond milk (more or less, depending on how thick you’d like your oats)
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries, plus more for topping

Ingredients I was missing:

  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp ground flax
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • sliced almonds (for topping)

So making the overnight oats is SUPER simple. All you have to do is combine all of the above ingredients in a bowl or a jar (I used a big tupperware because that’s what I had to work with). Then you simply cover and refrigerate overnight.

When you wake up in the morning, breakfast is ready to be served! Just divide the oats into two servings (or just eat them all yourself, I won’t judge), top with blueberries, and enjoy!
