What are overnight oats?

Overnight oats are made by mixing oats together with a type of milk, flavouring and often chia seeds and placed in the fridge overnight until it reaches a creamy and thick consistency.

Unlike traditional oatmeal where the oats are cooked in liquid, overnight oats just sit overnight in a liquid. The result is a creamy, pudding-like of oats that can be enjoyed cold right out of the fridge.

Tiramisu overnight oats ingredients

  • Oats: I recommend using rolled oats for a chewy and delicious texture. Quick oats will work too.
  • Chia seeds: these not only add fibre to the recipe but will help to absorb the liquid and make the overnight oats creamy.
  • Salt: just a pinch of salt to balance out the flavour of the overnight oats.
  • Espresso: you can use a shot of espresso or substitute it with 2 tsp of instant coffee.
  • Almond milk: or any type of dairy milk or plant-based milk you love.
  • Maply syrup: to sweeten. You can also use honey.
  • Vanilla extract: for flavour.
  • Vanilla Greek yogurt: I like to use greek yogurt because it is thick and creamy, but you can use any type of yogurt you love.
  • Cocoa powder: to top off the oats.

Expert tips for making overnight oats

  • Use rolled oats. You can also use quick oats, but rolled oats give the tiramisu overnight oats a much nicer texture! Quick oats tend to get a bit mushy in overnight oats.
  • Make it high in protein. Try adding a scoop of your favourite protein powder to this recipe to make it even higher in protein. Unflavoured, vanilla or coffee-flavoured protein powders would all work well.
  • Store in individual jars to take on the go. If you want to meal prep this recipe, store each serving in its own jar already layered and ready to go!
