Gluten and Dairy-Free Overnight Oats For A Quick And Healthy Breakfast

Oatmeal is a very healthy breakfast. Oats are a terrific functional food for the body. Quaker oats has a lot of easy and healthy recipes on their site. My family enjoys the overnight oats made with equal parts oats and cashew milk, with a bit of cinnamon, chia seeds and honey. Cover this mixture with sliced bananas and top with peanut butter. This mixture stays in the fridge for the night and you mix it together in the morning. If you do not enjoy this cold, you can heat the mixture for a minute.

If you have a nut allergy, use oat milk with the oats and cover the top with sunflower seed butter for a high protein and filling breakfast.


More recipes can be found on the Quaker Oats website.
