What are overnight oats?

If you haven’t had overnight oats before, they are essentially a cold version of oatmeal. Instead of cooking rolled oats to form porridge, you soak rolled oats in liquid overnight (or at least for a few hours). This softens the oats to a beautifully creamy texture.

If you struggle to find time in the morning to make breakfast, overnight oats are perfect. Whip them up the night before, pop them in the fridge, and you have a healthy breakfast waiting for you in the morning!

Are tiramisu overnight oats healthy?

Yes! Overnight oats are full of health benefits. They are rich fibre, protein content, and they contain a number of vitamins and minerals. These healthy tiramisu overnight oats are naturally sweetened and include wholesome ingredients.

Ingredients in vegan tiramisu oats

You just need a few simple ingredients to make these tiramisu overnight oats, most of which you should already have in your pantry!

Tiramisu overnight oats recipe ingredients

ROLLED OATS– If you prefer a smooth consistency to your tiramisu oatmeal, use quick oats. If you want a bit more texture, use whole rolled oats (this is my preference).

COCOA POWDER– The type of cocoa powder you use in your Tiramisu overnight oats will have an impact on its overall flavour. I would recommend high-quality, dutch-process cocoa. This gives off a smoother and more mellow flavour than regular cocoa powder.

MAPLE SYRUP I use maple syrup to make these overnight oats naturally sweetened, however you can substitute this for your sweetener of choice.

CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT BUTTER– I use the Koro hazelnut butter with cocoa as it’s naturally sweetened and basically a healthy version of Nutella! You can use the code POLKADOT for 5% off. See notes if you want to make this nut-free.

NON-DAIRY MILK- Use whatever non-dairy milk you would like for the overnight oats. I use oat milk here as I find it has the most neutral and creamiest taste.

COFFEE- If you want a moderate coffee flavour for your tiramisu oats, I’d recommend using the suggested 1/3 cup of brewed coffee. For a stronger coffee flavour, you can use 2 espresso shots and an extra 1/4 cup milk.

VANILLA- I use vanilla powder in the Tiramisu oats and vanilla essence in the vanilla cream layer, however, you can use one or the other for both (use half the amount of powder to essence).

VEGAN YOGURT– You can use any thick non-dairy yogurt here, I personally like coconut yogurt. If you are not vegan, Greek yogurt will work great.

How to make Tiramisu Overnight Oats

The best thing about these healthy overnight oats is how quick easy they are to make! They require only 10 minutes of prep time. The rest of the time is just leaving the tiramisu oatmeal mixture to set in the fridge!

1. In a large bowl, mix together rolled oats, cocoa powder, maple syrup, hazelnut cocoa spread, non-dairy milk, brewed coffee and vanilla powder until well combined. Place in fridge for 10 minutes to set.

4. Cover and place in the fridge to set overnight (or for at least 4 hours). Once set, dust with cocoa powder and serve!

Are these Tiramisu overnight oats vegan?

Given you use non-dairy milk and vegan yogurt, these tiramisu overnight oats are completely dairy-free and suitable for vegans. If you are not vegan, you can use cow’s milk and greek yogurt.

Tiramisu Dessert Oats Dietary Notes/ Substitutions

GLUTEN-FREE: Use certified gluten-free rolled oats in order for this tiramisu oatmeal to be GF.

NUT-FREE: To make this tiramisu overnight oats recipe nut-free, substitute the chocolate hazelnut butter for 1 extra tablespoon of cocoa powder and 1/2 tablespoon of maple syrup.

How long can I store overnight oats?

You can store the tiramisu overnight oats on their own in the fridge for up to 3 days in an airtight container. However, once you’ve layered the tiramisu oats with the yogurt, you should consume them the next day.
