This tiramisu overnight oats recipe is a healthy breakfast treat. Simply made with layers of coffee-flavored oats, creamy yogurt, and a dusting of cacao powder.
WHY YOU’LL LIKE TIRAMISU OVERNIGHT OATS
This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, and made without refined sugar. A healthy breakfast recipe that tastes like dessert, but is healthy and filling. This recipe is also great for meal prep and can be customized to add more nutritional value and protein.
INGREDIENTS YOU’LL NEED:
- Rolled Oats: Old-fashioned organic gluten-free rolled oats are great for this recipe. I definitely don’t recommend using steel-cut oats as they will have a completely different texture.
- Non-Dairy Milk: I like to use unsweetened almond milk or cashew milk. Feel free to use any dairy-free milk of your choice.
- Coffee: I use a store-bought coffee concentrate, but you can also use freshly brewed coffee or instant coffee powder.
- Cacao Powder: a simple dusting for that quintessential tiramisu flavor. You can also use cocoa powder if you don't have cacao powder on hand.
- Vanilla Yogurt: I like to use sweetened non-dairy vanilla yogurt to balance out the bitterness of the cacao powder. Feel free to use an unsweetened or greek yogurt if you prefer.
- Sweetener: I use agave syrup, but maple syrup or date syrup are also great options.
HOW TO MAKE TIRAMISU OVERNIGHT OATS:
- Add the oats, non-dairy milk, agave, and coffee to an airtight container.
- Stir to combine.
- Cover and allow to set in the fridge overnight or for a minimum of three hours.
- Top with yogurt and cacao powder when ready to serve.
WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AMOUNT OF TIME FOR OVERNIGHT OATS?
Overnight oats don’t have to be made overnight. I’ve made them in as little as three hours, by preparing them in the morning before leaving for work and enjoying them for an early lunch.
MIX-INS TO ADD A NUTRITIONAL BOOST TO YOUR OATS
- Chia Seeds: a great source of calcium, iron, omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and protein.
- Protein Powder: my favorite protein powder is by Ora Organics. Vanilla flavored is ideal.
- Hemp Seeds: another great source of omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and fiber.
- Ground Flax Seeds: yet another healthy seed for fiber, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids.
All of these are great options to add to your overnight oats recipe without significantly changing the flavor.
HOW TO STORE OVERNIGHT OATS:
Overnight oats can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for up 5 days, which makes this recipe great for a healthy meal prep breakfast to save you time in the morning.Print
