How to Soak GF Oats

Are you wondering how to soak GF Oats? Soaking your GF Oats is easy. Just grab a pot you can use on the stove in the morning for your warm oats. Or, if you are having them cold, use a breakfast bowl or container with a lid you can grab in the morning and take with you.

Step 1 –

  • Measure the desired amount of oats into a glass bowl, using approximately ½ cup to 1 cup of uncooked old fashioned uncontaminated oats per serving. Pour the liquid you prefer into the bowl with the oats, I prefer water but you can use your preferred dairy or dairy alternative. Use about two times as much liquid as oats; for example, if you’ve measured 1 cup of oats into the bowl, then you’ll need 2 cups of liquid for soaking. Possible options include plain water, dairy milk, oat milk, almond or coconut milk are my preferences.

Step 2 –

  • Mix the contents of the bowl with a spoon to thoroughly blend the oats and the liquid. Add a pinch of sale. Cover the bowl loosely with a paper towel or a lid. Place the bowl carefully in the refrigerator and leave it to soak for 12 to 24 hours or overnight.

Step 3 –

  • Remove the oat-filled bowl from the refrigerator and discard the paper towel. Stir the mixture in the bowl to blend it completely. Spoon the soaked oats into a cooking pot for heating on the stove or into a bowl if you’d rather eat them uncooked. Add to them any of your favourite toppings which can include fruit, yoghurt, seeds, nuts etc.
