Meet my latest breakfast obsession – Pineapple Coconut Overnight Oats! I was inspired by my Pina Colada smoothie bowl to make this overnight oats combo and it is SO. GOOD. The pineapple and coconut combination tastes so refreshing and delicious! It is the perfect overnight oats combo for the summer. This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar free and is so simple to make!
On Sundays, I usually like meal prepping my overnight oats for breakfast for the week. It is literally so simple and then I have breakfast already made for me for the entire week! I make them all at once and then let them sit overnight in the fridge and then on Monday all I have to do is reach into the fridge and grab a jar for breakfast. It couldn’t be easier! I like to re-purpose glass nut butter jars and use them for my overnight oats. Re-purposing nut butter jars for overnight oats supports nontoxic living by reducing waste and use of plastics. Plastics do interact with our foods!
I love making overnight oats because it is a satisfying and delicious meal and also oats are not very expensive. I do try to buy gluten-free oats because even though oatmeal by itself does not contain gluten, oats are commonly processed in facilities where there could be cross contamination with gluten-containing products. If you have a gluten sensitivity, better to be safe and buy gluten-free oats.
1 cup gluten free oats
1 cup coconut milk
1 tbsp coconut cream
1/2 cup sliced pineapple
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tbsp honey
Optional toppings: bee pollen and goji berries
- Place gluten-free rolled oats and coconut milk in a container. Place container in the fridge and allow to sit overnight. Note: make sure to use liquid coconut milk and not coconut cream.
- Place a can of full fat coconut milk in the fridge overnight. When you remove the can from the fridge the next day, the cream will separate from the liquid coconut milk and rise to the top of the can. The cream will only separate in full fat coconut milk.
- Remove oats from the fridge. Top with coconut cream, sliced pineapple, chia seeds, and honey. Enjoy!
