Chai Latte Overnight Oats ingredients

  • Oats: this is of course the key ingredient to make overnight oats! I prefer to make overnight oats with rolled oats (also called large flake oats) but quick oats will work too.
  • Chia seeds: not only are these packed with nutrients, but they also help to thicken the overnight oats.
  • Complement Organic Protein Powder: this protein powder is made with 5 real food proteins and nothing else. (nothing artificial here!) It’s organic, easily digestible and tastes great in the overnight oats.
  • Spices: A combination of cinnamon, ground ginger, nutmeg and cloves to create a delicious chai flavour.
  • Yogurt: I like to use Greek yogurt but you can use any type of yogurt, including dairy-free yogurt.
  • Vanilla: just a hint of vanilla extract to help flavour the overnight oats
  • Maples syrup: to sweeten the oats. You can also use honey, agave nectar or brown sugar.
  • Almond milk: or any type of milk you like. (Plant-based or dairy both work.)

How to make Chai Latte Overnight Oats

Step 1

Expert tips for making overnight oats

  • Use rolled oats for a chewy texture. This is my favourite texture for overnight oats. Quick oats will give a softer texture.
  • Don’t use steel-cut oats. You can’t use steel-cut oats to make overnight oats! They won’t turn out properly.
  • Add up to 1/4 cup of protein powder per serving. If you want some extra protein, you can add up to 1/4 cup of protein powder per serving (or 1/2 cup per entire recipe.)
  • Prepare these oats on meal prep day. These oats will last up to 5 days in the fridge so you can prepare them at the beginning of the week for easy breakfasts!
