The Ultimate Breakfast

We eat oats almost every single day in some form or another. Almost always it’s for breakfast, and the rest of the time, it’s a snack or dessert. Whether it’s overnight oats or an oatmeal bake or oatmeal pancakes, when it comes to breakfast, the recipe options with oats are endless! And this vegan overnight oats recipe is oh so flavorful and easy to make! Chocolate + chai is like banana + peanut butter. It just works. Especially in the fall and winter. Ya feel me? And I’m so much more likely to eat a healthy breakfast if I prep it the night before. Cue: overnight oats. That way, I can just grab it on my way out the door even when I don’t have time to eat at home.

Overnight Oats FAQs

Do you eat overnight oats hot or cold? Overnight oats are typically eaten cold, however, if you prefer warm oats you can always heat them up. Because you soak the oats overnight, they become soft and easy to digest making them delicious when cold with no need to heat! Can you make overnight oats with or without milk? Yes! This recipe calls for almond milk, but feel free to use ANY kind of milk. Additionally, you can make this recipe with water, but it won’t be quite as creamy. How do you store overnight oats? Store overnight oats in an air-tight glass container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. How long can you keep overnight oats in the refrigerator? Overnight oats will typically last 3-5 days in the refrigerator. Is overnight oatmeal good for you? Yes! Overnight oatmeal is packed with fiber and whole grains.

New reader & I am loving your blog Lee- gorgeous photos! I have recently gotten back into overnight oats and I can’t get enough…it’s almost like eating dessert for breakfast! As a huge chai lover, I am totally making this soon. Have you ever tried a dirty chai tea latte i.e. a chai tea latte with a shot of espresso added in. If not, you need to ASAP!

YAY! I’m so glad you found me. I’ve never tried a dirty chai but it SOUNDS AMAZING. Doode- how did I not think of that?!

October 5, 2014 11:05 am

I need all the help I can get to eat breakfast! This looks amazing! I love flavoured oats! Used to buy the unhealthy ones when I lived in England.
Anyhow, I feel like the daftest person in the world, but is it as simple as just mixing the two together, and then putting it in the fridge overnight? no boiling or anything?
Another problem I have is probably with the type of oats, but that is just because I live in Sweden and have not heard about quick oats or “normal” oats etc.
Anyway, please let me know so I can make this deliciousness and give me another reason to buy those kinds of jars (again)! Love it!!!

Oats all day every day – that’s me. Okay, not ALL day but every because oats are seriously hot. And that’s how I take mine. Ha, can you tell from my lame jokes I just got home from work – hungry for some oats?!

Haha I was thinking more like happy hour 😀 😀 Oats for dinner…yes please!

I need to try your pumpkin coconut oats STAT!

Yum! I’ve still been on my chia pudding kick even with the fall weather approaching but usually keep it pretty plain. I need to try this recipe. I bought all of your spices this past weekend for your DIY chai to make your hot chocolate. Now I can repurpose too and make two recipes in one. Genius.
I prefer my oats hot and I eat some type of nut butter er day. Love it 🙂

I actually don’t have a true recipe but I usually mix 1/2 c. Almond milk with 1.5 T chia seeds, shake well and put in the fridge overnight. It turns into a thick yogurt like consistency. Then, you can mix in whatever you’d like. Cacao, banana, goji, or NUT BUTTER

You are the queen of oats. I prefer cold oats but I’m thinking I need to give warm oats a tenth try. I want to like them! As for a food I eat every day….. does coffee count? 😀

September 30, 2014 8:31 am

Uhhh yes, coffee is a food group in itself 😀 It’s definitely on my list!

Oh hey sexy oats.

I love making my oats the night before but cooking them if that makes sense and no yogurt. I eat cheese everyday. no wait. Bread? I don’t know. Water.
