This recipe is so easy to make and is so delish! The coffee flavor is just the best. 10/10!!
I love coffee anything so this caught my attention. I did tweak it just a little…..added protein powder, used maple syrup in lieu of brown sugar and used coconut milk because that’s what I had and used instant Cafe Bustelo espresso. Wow, was this ever good! I will make again and again!!
So glad these tweaks were delish!
Thank you for this recipe! It has quickly become one of my favorite breakfasts. I usually add a tablespoon of dark chocolate chips and some collagen powder for protein and it always keeps me full for hours.
This was delicious! I struggle eating overnight oats, I can’t get used to the coldness, but I was hoping this would be good because I love iced coffee. This is definitely a recipe that I am going to keep.
I should probably add that I used oatmilk and real espresso.
This recipe is a 10/10!!! So easy to make and absolutely delish! I used 1 shot of expresso and it was perfect.
So glad you loved it!
Love this Starbucks + overnight oats mashup! The brown sugar and espresso flavor is delicious. It makes a really quick and tasty breakfast I can grab from the fridge in the morning, and I’ve been experimenting with different mix-ins likes nuts and coconut to add more texture.
