Steel cut oats – love em? Hate em? I made them in the slow cooker once. Eh. I had the idea that they would be a lot chewier and not quite as… mushy (sorry) as regular oats. Slow cooker made them a bit mushy.

But soaked overnight with chia seeds and and enjoyed the next morning (and next, and next) – perfect texture! And perfect for the summer. I realize it’s almost fall now, but if you live in the south, we don’t really have fall so still super hot.

Several years ago, I got on a huge overnight oats kick. I would use regular oats, greek yogurt and water. I burnt out. Haven’t had them since.

Overnight steel cut oats are so different than my old version. The texture is chewier. They feel lighter (probably the absence of yogurt). And the flavor. Cinnamon-y, ginger-y, and not too sweet. I put very little honey in there, but feel free to add more based on your sweetness preference.

Try these overnight gluten free steel cut oats with chia seeds & goji berries – be creative with your toppings! Almond butter is a must though.
