Recipe: Trio of Overnight Oats Recipes

by JJ Virgin

Recipes for overnight oats are cropping up everywhere, and it’s no wonder! Packed full of heart-healthy, filling fiber, oats are a great way to start your day. These convenient versions make it easy to enjoy your oatmeal without the fuss.

Our Trio of Overnight Oats recipes take it one step further by ensuring you’ve got great gluten-free options with extra protein for energy. You’re going to love the delicious flavors of Triple Chocolate Blueberry, Strawberries and Cream, and Cinnamon Almond.

These quick breakfasts come together in minutes, and your fridge does the rest. They’re so simple that the kids or grandkids can help out, and the results taste absolutely scrumptious. No cooking required!

Remember, always look for gluten-free oats – many brands are processed with wheat starch. If you do have a gluten intolerance, be sure oats aren't a problem for you, as there's some evidence of crossover between the two issues.
