As a gluten free family, it is really important for us to eat certified gluten free oats. It isn’t that regular oats contain gluten, but most oats have gluten due to cross contamination.
Bob’s Red Mill’s oats are certified gluten free so we can enjoy these safely. Bob’s Red Mill’s gluten free oats are packaged in a 100% gluten free facility and tested every step of the way to ensure their gluten free status. They also make three varieties of gluten free oats: Rolled Oats, Quick Oats, and Steel Cut Oats.
Oats are not only a versatile grain, but they are rich in daily fiber, which can help reduce cholesterol. I love that oats are not just for breakfast. You can make both sweet and savory recipes like cookies, granola, and even meatloaf!
This overnight oat recipe is so easy to make.
Take a mason jar, or other container and add chopped apples and oats.
Add in some chia, then the wet ingredients. Shake and put into the refrigerator overnight.
The next morning just open the jar and serve! Your kids are off to school, and they had a quick nutritious breakfast!
Tools You Need to Make This Recipe:
- Certified gluten free oats. Make sure your oats are certified gluten free. Oats are very easily cross contaminated with wheat so really make sure so you stay safe.
- Chia seeds. I add some in this recipe for some extra protein.
- Mason jars. These have so many fun uses. I am starting to store my left overs in these because they are so easy to fill and close up. They stack in my refrigerator so nicely. Everything can go in the dishwasher.
