Healthy overnight oats made with coffee and chocolate

Right, okay. So I’ve eaten these Tiramisu Overnight Oats for a month straight now. I’m addicted. I can’t get over how much it actually tastes like the dessert!

If that doesn’t convince you to try it, allow me to elaborate:

Coffee + chocolate + heart-healthy oats + filling Greek yoghurt = The BEST low-effort breakfast ever!

This speedy breakfast starts with a layer of the creamiest coffee flavoured oats, pimped up with chia seeds for extra nutrients and protein. Then we add a layer of smooth, lightly sweetened Greek yogurt for a creamy tang that mimics the mascarpone in regular tiramisu. And obviously, a generous dusting of cacao powder and some cacao nibs for all the chocolatey goodness.

It’s SUCH a perfect combination and the best way to kick off your day. Honestly, I’m surprised it’s taken me this long to create it.

And if layering seems like a painful experience for you at 7am, then you can totally forgo it. Mix the yogurt into the oats and top it with some cacao powder and nibs. Good to go.

What are overnight oats?

Overnight oats are essentially cold porridge. They’re created by soaking rolled oats and chia seeds (and other flavourings) in a liquid, usually milk, overnight in the fridge. The soaking process creates a thick, creamy, porridge that is typically served cold and topped with yoghurt, fruit, nuts, seeds, or nut butters.

Ingredients in tiramisu overnight oats

Just 10 ingredients are needed to pull together these delicious coffee and chocolate flavoured overnight oats! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Rolled oats: These jumbo oats are perfect for making overnight oats because they retain their texture even after soaking. They also give you a big boost of healthy fibre.
  • Chia seeds: For some added protein and their gelling properties, chia seeds are a must for setting the oat mixture.
  • Espresso powder: Coffee is an essential flavour in these oats to make them taste like a real tiramisu!
  • Sea salt: A little salt brings out all the flavours in this healthy breakfast.
  • Maple syrup: To sweeten our breakfast naturally – you could also use honey or agave syrup.
  • Vanilla extract: I love the hint of vanilla alongside the coffee and chocolate here.
  • Milk: Soaked up by the oats and chia seeds to create the creamy base for this recipe. I prefer to use hemp milk, but feel free to use cow’s or any other plant-based milk.
  • Greek yoghurt: A healthier way to create the tangy “cheese” layer of our tiramisu overnight oats!
  • Cacao powder and cacao nibs: A tiramisu needs chocolate. The end.

Tips for making this recipe perfectly

  • Use rolled oats for this recipe, not porridge oats. Porridge oats are cut too fine and tend to turn into complete mush, so be sure to use rolled oats (aka jumbo oats) for optimal texture.
  • Superfine espresso powder is best for this recipe because it will easily dissolve in the cold milk. Instant granules may work, but it would be best to try dissolving them in the milk first before adding it to the rest of the ingredients.
  • Don’t have maple syrup? You can use honey or agave syrup for this recipe.
  • If you’re not a fan of cacao nibs, mini chocolate chips or even diced berries also work a treat for topping!
