My gluten free overnight oats recipe is guaranteed to prevent 99% of cases of getting up on the wrong side of bed. Oh and it’s vegan, dairy free and low FODMAP too.
Ok, I know overnight oats have been a thing for quite some time but I’m usually late to most parties in life (I mean, I only saw The Greatest Showman last week) So here’s my gluten free overnight oats recipe – fashionably late as usual!
To be honest, I was a little delayed in getting into overnight oats because I just didn’t really get it.
(ok, yes – the name makes it pretty obvious. but that’s not what I had an issue with!)
I’d always had warming, piping hot porridge as a kid during the colder months and that’s how I’ve always loved my oaty fix.
So how on Earth could I then eat cold oats in the morning?!
But you know what? They’re great!
(I feel like you should have read that in a Tony the Tiger voice since we’re talking about breakfast here)
It’s such a great way to enjoy oats in the morning and because it’s cold… it’s more verging on the sort of ‘I’m enjoying this a bit like how I enjoy dessert’ side of things – does that make sense?!
After all, you can top your overnight oats with whatever you want. I went for peanut butter and jam (one of my fave combos) served up in cute little jam jars.
I also made a bowl of blueberry and pecan which I would happily have for dessert any day if I was allowed!
You don’t have to go as mad and make it all fancy like I did in the photos either – it’ll still tastes the same!
I’m just a typical food blogger who does what my Mum always told me not to… play with my food. Well in your face Mum, playing with my food is now my job. Funny how life turns out, isn’t it?
But you really can go wild with your flavour choices if you fancy, or you can just stick to what you know you already love.
If you still want that dessert feeling, why not add some frozen fruit to your overnight oats? Trust me, they work so well and with a little extra splash of maple syrup, you’ll be in brekky heaven.
Now, this recipe just shows you how to create the oats so that you can top them and serve them up however you like.
BUT if you reeeeally want the recipes of how I created my PB&J or my blueberry and pecan overnight oats, then let me know and I’ll gladly write them up for you. I’m nice like that!
Ok – now it’s time to make my gluten free overnight oats recipe and then go immediately to sleep so you can enjoy them in the morning ASAP. Good night!
Gluten Free Overnight Oats Recipe (vegan, low FODMAP)
This gluten free overnight oats recipe is the perfect base that can be used for all Overnight Recipes - whatever you fancy topping yours with! I make enough at once to get me through the working week but you can reduce the ratios to make enough for one or a couple of bowls.
- 3 cups of dairy free milk (I tend to use almond)
- 3 cups of gluten free oats
- 3 tsp maple syrup
- 3 tbsp peanut butter (optional - I just like the nutty flavour. You could also use a different nut butter)
Place all your ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly together. I make enough for a few days at once so do this in a mixing bowl.
Cover your bowl and place in the fridge overnight or at least a good few hours.
Remove from the fridge and then top with whatever you wish (I have recipe ideas linked to this post). Enjoy!
