Gluten-Free Overnight Oats with Stone Fruit Recipe

July 28th, 2015 | 2 comments

Weekday mornings are all about “no fuss” breakfasts. I love to find filling, satisfying and most of all easy options so that mornings can stay hassle-free but also healthful and delicious. In the summer in NY when its hot and humid, I reach for cold breakfasts in the morning like smoothies, fruit parfaits and cold cereals.

But you know what…sometime you don’t want a smoothie. AMIRIGHT?!

I’ve recently been getting into a new kind of breakfast, one that I resisted for a little while. There was something about the new texture I was resisting but once I dove in head-first I have NEVER looked back.  This breakfast is a favorite because it literally prepares itself while you sleep, hence the name “overnight oats.” It’s cold, sweet and perfectly textured, a real treat.

I use the same basic recipe and switch up the star ingredient (fruit) based on what’s in season or let’s be real, in my fridge. Can we say convenience?! :) I love that this is a cold breakfast that you can take on the go that is packed with flavor, protein and fiber for instant (and lasting) energy on my busy days. This is great for travel days, heavy workout days or just a busy hot and humid summer morning.

I prepare my oats in recycled jam jars or use small mason jars for grab n’ go convenience.

You’ll need:

  • 1/3 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds 
  • 1/3 cup almond milk (or any nut-milk)
  • small dash of Himalayan sea salt
  • 1 TSP organic cinnamon
  • 2 TSP grade b organic maple syrup (optional)
  • Chopped fruit of choice (raw or frozen)
  • Toppings before serving: banana, shredded coconut, slivered almonds (optional)
  • Optional protein mix-in: 1 TBSP raw almond butter

To make:

Add rolled oats, chia seeds, salt, cinnamon and almond milk to a glass jar. Stir well with a spoon. If adding maple syrup or almond butter, mix in to fully incorporate. Top with your favorite seasonal fruit and cover. Refrigerate overnight, eat cold. If you like extra texture, right before you eat top with shredded coconut, hemp hearts or slivered almonds.
