Overnight Oats 3 Allergy Friendly Ways

Gluten free overnight oats are the 5-minute solution to your busy morning! Creamy and endless flavors, this version is free of gluten, nuts, dairy, egg, and more!

I think it is entirely possible that I am the last person left in the food blogging world to try overnight oats. Since going gluten free, I always thought oatmeal was something I could no longer eat, so I always skimmed over these recipes, thinking they weren’t for me.

And if you’re wondering about oats being gluten free, the answer is it depends. If you purchase oats that state they are certified gluten free, they more than likely are, especially if you are living in the US. For more on what gluten is and how to avoid it, see my Wheat Allergy: What to Eat and What to Avoid guide.

Enter the hero of this story: Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Oats! I found this huge bag of oats at my local grocery store and just knew I had to get it and try out overnight oats. My friends, I was not disappointed.

How are Gluten Free Overnight Oats Different?

At the core of this recipe, my gluten free overnight oats are no different from other overnight oats. You mix about equal parts of oats to your milk of choice (I tried both cows milk and rice milk and they both work great) and mix in your flavors. They sit in the fridge overnight and the oats absorb all the milk, making them creamy without being runny. It almost turns into a kind of pudding! Which, I’ll for sure eat in the morning.

You can eat overnight oats cold from the fridge or warm them up in the microwave for a minute. Both ways are delicious, though I prefer my oats to be warm.

Overnight Oats FAQ

How long do overnight oats last?

In my house, they last until the next morning when we all eat them! They should keep for 24-36 hours in the fridge and won’t keep in the freezer at all.

Can you eat overnight oats hot?

Yep! I prefer mine to be warmed in the microwave for about a minute. Just make sure you transfer them to a microwave safe bowl for reheating. You can also warm them gently on the stove top.

Can I use quick oats or do they need to be rolled?

I haven’t tried them with quick oats, but I’m sure they would still work. They might turn out a little creamier and porridge like. If you try this leave a comment and let me know how they turn out!

Are overnight oats healthy?

Yes! By soaking the oats overnight, you are increasing their digestibility. The starches in the oats break down gently and reduce their phytic acid, making it easier for your body to absorb the nutrients.
