Gluten free oats for breakfast
I used to think that oatmeal was disgusting. To be honest, I can’t remember trying it, but it (with it I mean porridge as I didn’t know there were different options) always seemed gross to me. WhenÂ eating oats for breakfast became a trend and so many people around me started eating it I was curious. It must be delicious (or at least quite tasteful) as so many people were eating it, right? Besides that it’s good for losing weight and it lowers your cholesterol. Can it get any better? Yes it can. Because oats are naturally gluten free!
Unfortunately it’s often processed in a normal mill where wheat and rye are processed too. Due to the other grains there’s a lot of cross contamination. So if you are a celiac, please make sure you buy gluten free oats which is processed in a gluten free mill!
Back to the breakfast recipe! I love this breakfast (and I love this breakfast recipe too) and I love oats! and yes, I really said I love oats! Who would have guessed that? This recipe is great and I’m convinced you’ll love it too. The original recipe is made by Rens KroesÂ (yes, she’s the sister of the super model), but I gave it my own spin and made it completely lactose free and gluten free. Enjoy these gluten free oats for breakfast!
Ingredients for 4 breakfasts:
- 200 gr. gluten free oats
- 400 ml. rice milk / almond milk
- 1 banana (chopped up)
- 1/4 cupÂ of raisins
- 1/4 cup of cranberries (dried)
- 1,5 tsp. baking powder
- Optional: dates, apricots, strawberries
- Hint of cinnamon
- Hint of nutmeg
- Hint of ground cloves
How to prepare the gluten free oats for breakfast:
Preheat the oven to 200 C/ 390 F.
Put the oats and chia seed in a big bowl and add the milk. Keep stirring until the oats are soaked properly (not too wet, not too dry). Add all the other ingredients and stir again.
Divide the oats over 4 weckjars (or 4 jars that are suitable for ovens). Place the jars into the oven for Â± 20 minutes. When the top turns slightly brown you are good to go!
I love making this breakfast on a sunday (as I’ve got more time on sunday’s then during the week). You can easily store the jars in the fridge (after they had some oven time) and eat them cold!
Enjoy your breakfast (or lunch) and have a great day!
