To make this delicious breakfast, we will need:

  • Rolled oats. Oats are a great source of fiber and contain a lot of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The regular consumption of oats helps to lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels, also supports your gut health. Choose gluten-free labeled oats, if you are on a gluten-free diet.
  • Almond milk. You can use any milk of your choice, such as coconut, oat, soy, or regular dairy milk.
  • Greek Yogurt is high in protein and serves as a frosting in our Tiramisu dessert.
  • Coffee is the required ingredient that gives us a Tiramisu flavor. Use instant coffee or espresso shot.
  • Chia seeds help to thicken the oats and also give omega-3 fats, which are vital for your health support.
  • Maple syrup to sweeten our overnight oats. Maple syrup may be substituted by other sweeteners of your choice – honey, agave syrup, or your other favorite sweetener.

Should overnight oats be cold or warm?
Overnight oats can be enjoyed either cold or warm, depending on personal preference. The classic way of serving overnight oats is a cold version. It can be especially nice during the hot summer months. But if you prefer a warm and comforting breakfast, you can heat up the overnight oats in the microwave. Simply transfer the oats to a microwave-safe dish and warm them up until they reach your desired temperature. And only then top it with yogurt.
Why add chia seeds to overnight oats?
Adding chia seeds to overnight oats can boost the nutritional value and texture of the dish, also they will help to thicken the oats. But if you want, you can omit chia seeds or substitute them with flax seeds.
Can I make it vegan?
Yes, absolutely! You can easily make a vegan version by substituting Greek yogurt with a plant-based alternative such as soy yogurt, coconut yogurt, or even coconut whipped cream.
Can I use water instead of milk for overnight oats?
Yes, you can use water instead of milk, but the oats may not be as creamy or flavorful.
