5 Easy Gluten Free Overnight Oat Recipes

Overnight oats are the lazy girls (or guys) way to eat a healthy breakfast. The flavour combos are ENDLESS, it takes less than 2 minutes to prep the night before and then it’s ready to eat straight away in the morning! No fuss, no cooking time, minimal prep but still delicious oaty goodness.

If you didn’t know from my name, I have a pretty healthy obsession with oats. Porridge is my no.1, as you really can’t beat a big bowl of warm, cosy oats in the morning! Come spring/summer and the arrival of warmer weather (maybe not so much in the UK at the moment) it’s all about the overnight oats for me. However, I’ll admit I still eat a fair amount of overnight oats in the winter, I just love the how quick they are in the morning’s!

Banana & Chocolate Overnight Oats

A classic combo but always a goodun’. Using mashed banana in the base creates a beautiful creamy texture and adds natural sweetness to the recipe. Go crazy with the chocolate hazelnut butter, it’s a key element in this bowl and is just SO BLOOMING DELICIOUS.

BASE RECIPE

  • 1/2 cup GF oats
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp honey/maple/agave

TOPPINGS

  • 1/2 sliced banana
  • Chocolate hazelnut butter
  • Cacao nibs
  • Raspberries

Mix the base ingredients together, cover and leave in the fridge overnight – give it another stir in the morning then add your toppings.

Mocha Overnight Oats

If you’re a coffee addict in the mornings then this recipe is perfect for you! Rich, chocolatey oats with a slight hint of espresso gives this bowl an extra kick that’ll get you in gear for the day. Buttery pecans are my favourite nut to sprinkle over this bowl, but any nuts will work!

BASE RECIPE

  • 1/2 cup GF oats
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp espresso powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp honey/maple/agave

TOPPINGS

  • Peanut butter
  • Frozen berries
  • Chopped pecans
  • Sprinkle of flaked coconut

Mix the base ingredients together, cover and leave in the fridge overnight – give it another stir in the morning then add your toppings.

Raspberry Jam Overnight Oats

This recipe is a recent experiment of mine – a couple of weeks ago I made a big jar of raspberry chia jam and found myself using it in so many recipes! With only 3 ingredients for the base, this oat recipe is by far my simplest, but just as delicious. If you used to have jam with your porridge as a child, then this is a grown-up, healthy alternative!

BASE RECIPE

  • 1/2 cup GF oats
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp raspberry chia jam

TOPPINGS

  • Raspberry chia jam
  • Peanut butter
  • Sliced blueberries
  • Granola

Mix the base ingredients together, cover and leave in the fridge overnight – give it another stir in the morning then add your toppings.

Almond Butter Overnight Chia Oats

One of my FAVOURITE flavour combos – using almond butter in the base creates a delicious caramel flavour and paired with the mashed banana is a a heavenly combo! I sometimes use chia seeds in my overnight oat recipes to create a slightly different texture and because of the insane health benefits that chia seeds offer.

I made a quick raspberry compote to add on top of this porridge recipe – simply melt 1tsp of coconut oil in a pan, then throw in a handful of fresh raspberries. Cook for 5 mins until the berries start to break down and create a yummy sauce.

BASE RECIPE

  • 1/2 cup GF oats
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 mashed banana
  • 1 tsp honey/maple/agave
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds

TOPPINGS

  • Raspberry compote
  • Sliced blueberries
  • Toasted seeds

Mix the base ingredients together, cover and leave in the fridge overnight – give it another stir in the morning then add your toppings.

Banana & Maca Overnight Oats

Another caramel flavoured recipe, perfect for anyone who’s a dessert for breakfast kinda gal! Maca powder is one of my favourite superfoods and has a bunch of amazing health benefits. It’s a great source of vitamins & minerals and can help mood/hormone balance, but most importantly it has a delicious caramel taste and has been described as ‘mildly nutty with a hint of butterscotch’ – erm YES PLEASE!

BASE RECIPE

  • 1/2 cup GF oats
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 mashed banana
  • 1 tsp maca powder
  • 1 tsp honey/maple/agave

TOPPINGS

  • Peanut butter
  • Blueberries
  • Chopped pistachios
  • Dried raspberries
  • Toasted seeds
