5 Day Overnight Oatmeal Mix

5 Day Overnight Oatmeal Mix
Yields: 5 days worth
dairy-free, oil-free, soy-free, gluten-free

Mix Ingredients:
  • 2 1/2 cups Old-fashioned Oats (gluten-free)
  • 2 cups Steel Cut Oats (gluten-free)
  • 1/2 cup dried chopped Dates
  • 5 tbsp. Coconut Sugar
  • 2 tbsp. Chia Seeds
  • 2 tsp. Cinnamon/Apple Pie Spice
  • 1 tsp. Sea Salt

Mix Directions: 
  1.  Dump all ingredients into a airtight container
  2.  Shake to combine

 Overnight Oatmeal Ingredients:
  • 1 cup Mix
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 cup frozen Blueberries (optional)

Overnight Oatmeal Directions: 
  1. Add all ingredients in a small bowl, I don't bother to stir
  2. Place in fridge overnight
  3. Next morning, microwave for 2-3 minutes
  4. Add additional Water or Plant-based Milk to reach desired texture

Hoff Thoughts: Yes, Oats are naturally gluten-free, but due to cross contamination during processing they are one of the highest contaminated foods - so if you have issues with gluten, spring for gluten-free Oats.  I like my Oatmeal with Blueberries, feel free to add any fruit or no fruit that you want.
