“Why all of a sudden are you sharing Persian recipes?”

“What do you mean?”

“You are adding turmeric in everything. That is SUCH a Persian thing to do.”

Once again, my mum is proclaiming how the Persians invented/discovered everything- Including turmeric.

I mentioned on Monday’s post how I was planning on sharing another recipe using the infamous golden milk mixture (after sharing these delicious no bake bites) and I’m here to honor that promise. 

Those of you who haven’t used turmeric in a recipe or used this spice consistently, do yourself a favor- Be prepared to have deliciously curry-colored fingers, turmeric under your fingernails, and a yellow tinge on your kitchen bench. It brought back childhood memories of my mum making kotlet (this is NOT my mum’s recipe…you should hear her winge about how wrong this version is), and how her hands would look like she was playing in a sandbox. 

ANYWAY.

Can we talk recipe details for a second? 

When I first made this, I had these grand plans to simply soak the oats in a pre-made golden milk mixture. Unfortunately, the result was less than stellar, and the color of the oats was visually unfortunate. Obviously, the ‘golden’ part of the recipe is due to the turmeric so I re-made it, but stirred through some turmeric towards the end and voila- Something visually appealing AND delicious to boot!

This healthy high protein ‘golden milk’ overnight oats recipe is smooth, creamy and takes minimal prep! It’s loaded with warming spices (turmeric, cayenne pepper/black pepper and ginger), and with a hint of sweetness (honey or maple syrup), finished with some milk of choice- Coconut works best, but you can use any! I also opted to add a scoop of protein powder for some added satiety, but that part is completely optional! Based on the ingredients used, these golden milk overnight oats are naturally gluten free, vegan, dairy free and can easily be made sugar free! 

HACK! Not a fan of overnight, refrigerator style oatmeal? This breakfast bowl can totally be enjoyed warm, simply prep it as normal and either microwave it or cook it stovetop, adding an extra 1/2 cup milk of choice.

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
  2. 1 T coconut flour (can sub for 1 T oat flour or almond flour)
  3. 1-2 T granulated sweetener of choice*
  4. 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)
  5. 1 T ground flax (can sub for chia seeds)
  6. pinch sea salt
  7. pinch black pepper OR cayenne pepper
  8. pinch ginger
  9. pinch turmeric
  10. drop vanilla extract
  11. 1/2-3/4 cup + unsweetened coconut milk (can use any milk of choice)
  12. 1- 2 T honey or maple syrup (use a sugar free maple syrup to keep it sugar free)
Instructions
  1. In a cereal bowl or small container, combine your rolled oats, coconut flour, vanilla protein powder, ground flax, sea salt, pepper and ginger and mix well. Add 1/2 cup coconut milk first, vanilla extract and mix well. If mixture is too crumbly (it may be due to coconut flour and protein powder), add extra coconut milk until an inch or so remains above the oats and refrigerate for at least an hour, or overnight.
  2. The next morning, remove oat mixture from the fridge- The oat mixture should be thick and creamy. If too thick, add more coconut milk to thin out to desired consistency. Stir through turmeric and swirl through the honey/maple syrup on top and enjoy!

  1. I’m definitely a warm oats in the morning kind of guy…especially on a cold Fall or Winter morning. And if I’ve got the time, I prefer to use the real deal oats and cook ’em up. Fun recipe you’ve got here…even if it means you’ll look like Big Bird for the next 2 weeks. 🙂

  2. Warm oats in the winter, cold oats in the summer. If I make overnight oats in the winter, I warm them up in the morning. I think your next recipe needs to be golden milk waffles. They could be sweet or savory 🙂

  3. Haha i want to meet your Mom so bad! She seems like a funny women lol. Anyway these oats though. They sound delicious like usual! serious question though, does tumeric make your skin yellow?

    1. Please come, she’d make you a watermelon cake, then claim the Persians grew watermelon.

      Lol, seeing as my mum is ghost white and eats turmeric very often, I’d have to say it does NOT have the kabocha effect 😀

  4. I’m all about turmeric lately and even bought turmeric sauerkraut at Whole Foods and have golden creamer in my coffee. Oh, and a test batch of golden ice cream in the freezer, almost forgot. And I might be the mom who claims to my kids that I invented everything. They probably think I invented Paleo lol 🙂

  5. Oats have to be warm, otherwise they’re not filling for me. Plus they don’t taste as good! I love that the spices in this recipe are already warming, but regardless, I need to reheat my overnight oats in the microwave or on the stovetop even! I’ve definitely been looking into trying turmeric along with nutritional yeast! I’ve heard so many amazing things about it!

  6. I haven’t had oatmeal in forever. Overnight oats are so convenient. I made them all the time when we stayed in motels last summer. Because motel breakfast = gross!
    I will make this for breakfast on Monday. I use turmeric a lot especially in burger and curry. I am always in for anti-inflammatory ingredients 😛

  7. Overnight oats are #1, and then hot oats are in a close second, if they’re made properly. Now, I am definitely going to try this one of these days, but I need to divorce nut butter and overnight oats in my mind. There is a bigger world out there beyond pb banana overnight oats.

  8. Haha! I literally just made these the other day 😉 I don’t know if I have a preference to be honest! Possibly cold…?
    As far as family members inventing things, not sure about inventions but my Nana liked to think her side of the family was related to Princess Diana because both of their maiden names were the same and they came from England… Nice try Nana, we are definitely not royalty.
