Notes on ingredients

You can find a complete list of ingredients with exact amounts and instructions in the recipe card below.

Sweet potato chocolate overnight oats

  • Rolled oats: Always make sure to buy certified gluten-free rolled oats to avoid possible cross-contamination.
  • Rice Milk: Substitute with cashew milk, soy milk, oat milk or almond milk. If you are not vegan, you can use regular milk.
  • Sweet potato puree: Sweet potatoes need to be baked and made into a puree in advance.  Check How to make sweet potato puree for instructions.
  • Banana: A ripe spotty banana is the best choice for this recipe as it adds natural sweetness.
  • Peanut butter: I use chunky peanut butter (my favorite). For a peanut-free breakfast, swap it for almond butter or for a nut-free breakfast, swap it for sunflower seed butter.
  • Cacao powder: I use raw cacao powder as it provides more nutrition but regular cocoa powder works just as well for this recipe.
  • Date syrup (optional): You can substitute it with date syrup or sweetener of your choice.

Blueberry compote

  • Blueberries: You can use fresh or frozen blueberries for this recipe.
  • Maple syrup: You can substitute it with sweetener of your choice.

Oats on a gluten-free diet

Most people with coeliac disease or gluten intolerance can tolerate gluten-free oats with no problems. However, a small percentage of people may still react to avenin – a protein in oats similar to gluten. For these people, even certified gluten-free oats may be unsafe.  If you develop any new symptoms after adding gluten-free oats to your diet, it’s best if you talk to your dietitian or a doctor.

Another problem can be cross-contamination. Even though oats are naturally gluten-free, they are often contaminated with gluten because they may be processed in the same facilities as gluten-containing grains like wheat, rye, and barley. Therefore, if you have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, always make sure your oats are certified gluten-free to avoid any cross-contamination issues.

  • In the morning, place overnight oats into a high-speed blender. Add sweet potato puree (check How to make sweet potato puree for instructions), 1 ripe banana, peanut butter, cacao powder, date syrup (optional), and approx. 50 ml rice milk. Blend briefly until smooth and creamy.

Note: If the consistency is too thick to your liking, you can add a little extra rice milk or water until you reach the desired consistency.

Blueberry compote

  • Stir all the ingredients together in a saucepan and cook over low to medium heat for about 5 minutes until the blueberries are softened and the mixture thickens slightly.
  • Remove from heat and let cool.

Serving suggestion

  • Serve in bowls and top with blueberry compote, fresh blueberries, peanut butter, and roughly chopped dark chocolate (optional).

Tips and how-tos

How to roast sweet potatoes
