  • 1 ½ cups water

  • ½ cup almond milk

  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats

  • ¼ cup cane sugar

  • 1 pinch Himalayan pink salt

  • 1 large egg

  • ½ cup gluten-free all purpose baking flour

  • ¼ cup olive oil, or as needed


  1. Bring water to a boil in a pot; reduce heat to low. Add almond milk and stir in oats. Add sugar, stirring vigorously. Stir in salt. Continue to simmer until oats have reached your desired consistency, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool, 15 to 20 minutes.

  2. Transfer oats to a lidded container, cover, and chill in a refrigerator, 30 minutes to 2 hours.

  3. Whisk egg in a small bowl. Place gluten-free flour in a separate bowl.

  4. Scoop chilled oatmeal into medium-size balls.

  5. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.

  6. Place oatmeal balls into egg wash until completely covered. Place in flour; cover entirely. Use a slotted spoon to remove floured oatmeal balls; shake off excess flour.

  7. Place oatmeal balls into the hot oil and cook until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes on each side.

Cook's Notes:

Don't use slow or steel cut oats.

You can use sea salt, if preferred.
