Want to know what makes for the perfect start to your day? An already prepared breakfast that tastes this dang delicious! Overnight oats are a total game changer when it comes to fast-paced mornings and there are so many ways to play with different flavor variations! I’ve been excited to play with matcha powder in the kitchen recently and this was the perfect way to incorporate that smooth matcha taste into a breakfast recipe.
Even better than the amazing taste of matcha in this breakfast is the fact that it’s gluten-free! Did you know that oats are naturally gluten-free? Only some are labeled as such because they are processed in a gluten-free facility so there isn’t a stitch of gluten to be found in them, which is necessary for someone with celiac disease. If you are simply avoiding gluten for the sake of improved health, rather than out of necessity, save a couple dollars by buying the regular oats, because the amount of gluten found in them is so negligible. There’s your little fun fact and money-saving tip for the day 😉
Beyond being gluten-free, this recipe is also dairy-free! The Coconut Cloud Matcha Green Tea Latte Mix in this recipe is a coconut-based powder that is SO TASTY! It’s perfect for making a simple matcha latte or whipping up tasty recipes like this! I have my sights set on some matcha energy balls in the future as well 🙂 Classic case of me thinking anything will taste great in energy ball form… I have yet to be proven wrong.
Coconut Cloud makes a convenient coconut creamer along with other natural, minimally processed coconut milk beverages, including stick-pack coconut creamers that are boosted with MCT oil – a phenomenal solution for when you are on-the-go and want dairy-free creamer! But back to matcha… 😉
This recipe is perfect for your next meal prep if you are looking for breakfasts that are easy for a grab-and-go kinda morning! I love making this recipe in a big mason jar and shaking it up to combine all the ingredients, then portioning it out into single-serving containers or smaller mason jars. If you want to amp up the protein in this recipe you can even add a scoop of vanilla protein powder!
