Tiramisu Overnight Oats

I love overnight oats. They're an easy way to get a healthy breakfast on the table and taste amazing! I've made many different flavours over the years, from chocolate peanut butter to strawberry cheesecake. But this time, I've gone all out with a tiramisu-inspired flavour. It's creamy, rich and super decadent!

The best part about these oats is that you can make them the night before so they're ready for you when you wake up! All you have to do is throw everything in a jar (or mason jar) and let it sit overnight in the fridge. In the morning, give it a stir and enjoy!

I think these would also be great served warm if you're making them ahead of time. It makes them feel more like dessert than breakfast too!

SUBSTITUTES

Here are all the ingredients and substitutes that you need to make these Tiramisu overnight oats with the chocolate layer:

  • Plant-based milk: Usually I use almond milk for my overnight oats, but you can choose any plant-based milk you like such as coconut, soya, rice milk or even dairy milk. If you like it higher in protein, go for soya milk.
  • Rolled oats – For overnight oats I recommend rolled oats as they don't become too soft overnight. But feel free to replace them with quick-cook or instant oats.
  • Protein powder: No protein powder? Replace with 1 tablespoon of honey or maple syrup! If you use vegan protein, you may need to add a bit more milk.
  • Yoghurt: my favourite yoghurt is Greek, but Skyr or Quark are always great options. Also, plant-based would work well.
  • No calorie sweetener: you can use stevia, honey, agave, maple syrup, or any other sweetener you like.
  • Chocolate coating: I have used dark chocolate sweetened with stevia, however, you may use any chocolate of preference.

Ingredients

  • 40 g 1/2 cup oats

  • 5 g 1 tbsp cocoa powder

  • 10 g 2/3 tbsp protein powder

  • 15 g 2/3 tbsp no calorie syrup of choice

  • 100 ml 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

  • 80 ml 1/3 cup brewed coffee

  • Toppings
  • 100 g 2/5 cup yoghurt of choice *

  • 10 g 2 tsp melted chocolate

Directions

  • Prepare the coffee.
  • In a bowl combine the oats, cocoa powder, protein powder, syrup and milk and stir until well combined.
  • Pour the brewed coffee into the bowl and stir again.
  • Transfer 1/3 of the oat mixture into a mason jar, and top with 50g of yoghurt. Repeat again for another layer of oat mixture and yoghurt, and finish with the remaining oat mixture.
  • Top with melted chocolate and refrigerate for a minimum of 2-3 hours or overnight.

Notes

  • I would suggest using Greek yoghurt or Skyr (for a vegan alternative) which are both high in protein. You can also use vanilla yoghurt if you prefer it on the sweeter side.
  • If you need these to be gluten-free, be sure to choose oats that are certified gluten-free (not all are).
  • Prefer to use rolled or "old-fashioned" oats. Quick cook or instant oats become softer if left overnight.
