GF/DF Cashew Butter Overnight Oats
I was first introduced to overnight oats 2 summers ago. I was flipping through a health magazine and the concept of cold oatmeal caught my attention. Especially since it was 90+ degrees outside. Hardy yet refreshing and I could hide all kinds of nutrients in the jar. If you have a hard workout ahead this is a great opportunity to load up on a high fiber low glycemic index food that will sustain you through lunch and beyond.
The combinations are endless for overnight oats.
For this one you’ll need:
½ cup of Gluten Free old fashion oatmeal
1 cup of nondairy milk
¼ cup of blueberries
1 nondairy Greek style yogurt
1 tbs of flax and chia blend
1 tsp of maca powder
1 tbs of cashew butter
Sprinkle of blue Spirulina Powder for color
1 12 (or more) glass bowl with a lid
In your glass bowl, combine oats, nondairy milk, flax and chia blend, maca powder and cashew butter. Stir, cover and refrigerate overnight. The next morning assemble your overnight oats in a glass jar or bowl. Layer oats, fruit and yogurt in a parfait style as you wish. I mixed a sprinkle of blue Spirulina Powder in the last bit of yogurt to offer a fun light blue color and for extra nutrients, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. This recipe makes 2 servings.
Give these oats a try. Any combination will do :)
