YOU ARE GONNA FALL IN LOVE with this tinyB take on a CLASSIC bowl of oatmeal!
This overnight oats recipe is definitely one of my favorites. Not only does it taste scrumdilleeicious (I think everyone has their own way of spelling that...there's mine..), but I grew up loving the Quaker Oats Instant Cinnamon Brown Sugar Oatmeal! My mom would have it ready for my brother and I nearly every morning before school, and it was always such a perfect kickstart to the day with some fruit, and a nice cold glass of orange juice with NO PULP! DOWN WITH PULP!
(of course, that was BC....before coffee... LOL!)
Suddenly, I developed some odd and random minor gluten intolerance, and was forced not to eat them ever again! My oatmeal eating days were shattered, and as much as I tried to enjoy the world of gluten free cinnamon brown sugar oatmeals, they just weren't the as the good ol' Quaker Oats versions.
I settled, yet knew I couldn't go on living like this.
Dun dun DUUUUUN.
Finally one day, I was over it--
I NEED. MY OATMEAL. BACK IN MY LIFE.
So, I discovered my savior Bob (yes, as in Red Mill) and his bag of Gluten Free Rolled Oats, and played around with this recipe until I FINALLY got it perfect. I even added MAPLE! Cause why the HELL not?! All that to say, I CANNOT WAIT to share it with you!
As always, this recipe is suuuuuper yummy and made with oh so much love, so try it as is! OR, note that the ingredients are 100% interchangeable, yet will alter the nutrition a bit!
tinyB's Maple Cinnamon Brown Sugar Overnight Oats Calories Per Serving: 240 Serving Size: 1
YOU WILL NEED:
½ cup Gluten Free Rolled Oats (i use Bob’s Red Mill, but you can use any oats!)
½ cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk* (any milk will also do! See notes)
1 dash Cinnamon 1 tbsp Dark Brown Sugar
1 tbsp Pure Maple Syrup
1 tsp Chia Seeds
1 tsp Vanilla
Fresh Fruit, such as raspberries, strawberries, etc. for garnish (optional, but HIGHLY recommended! Adds a lovely amount of freshness!)
1. If garnishing the night before, place fruit or any garnish you may desire to the side!
2. Add ALL of the other delicious ingredients together in a mason jar* and mix together.
3. Once combined, add garnish (or wait till the morning to add goodies!) and put the lid on!
4. Store for 5 hours-overnight, or for up to 4 days.
5. ENJOY!!! You deserve it 😋
Notes: - If you would like this jar of oats thicker, use ⅓ cup milk rather than ½ cup!
-In my experience, glass jars tend to chill nicer than plastic containers! However, if something else works better for you, GO FOR IT!
-Some optional toppings include stevia sweetened mini chocolate chips (or any kind!), strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, bananas, peanut butter--really, the options are endless! Whatever makes you excited, again, GO FOR IT!
