10 Ways to Love Gluten Free Oatmeal this Winter | Rachel Begun, MS, RD

When I wrote 10 Ways to Love Sweet Potatoes, I promised I would share more posts about how to get the most out of your favorite winter foods, so that you don’t get bored with them by Spring time.

I thought oatmeal would be a good food to focus on.  It’s a food many of us can eat every day during winter, but it’s important to mix it up with different ingredients and seasonings, both from a variety and nutrition perspective.

Here are 10 ways to love gluten-free oatmeal, with a few of the recipes focusing on oats rather than oatmeal.  Please make sure to use certified gluten free oatmeal for all recipes.

Overnight Sweet Potato Oatmeal

1/2 cup rolled oats (not quick-cooking oats)
1/2 cup pureed sweet potato
3/4 cup cashew milk (see recipe below)
Ground cinnamon, to taste

Mix the oats, sweet potato and cashew milk with a spoon until evenly distributed.  Sprinkle in ground cinnamon to taste.  Refrigerate overnight.  To reheat, put in the microwave on high for two minutes.

Cashew Milk

2 cups water
1/2 cup cashews, soaked for at least one hour, drained and rinsed
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 Medjool dates

Place water, cashews and vanilla into a blender (but do not blend yet).  Remove pits from the dates, break into small pieces and add to the mixture.  Blend until smooth, approximately 3-4 minutes.
