Ingredients

Ingredients to make the tiramisu recipe, laid out on a pale blue backgroud and labelled.

Greek Yogurt – The yogurt in this healthy breakfast recipe helps give these tiramisu overnight oats protein. I recommend using plain Greek yogurt, as you’ll be adding honey to sweeten it. However, you can use chocolate or vanilla yogurt if you choose. I would recommend leaving out the honey if you use this swap, so it’s not overly sweet.

Hot Chocolate Sachets – You can also use whichever flavour of hot chocolate you’d like to create these tiramisu overnight oats. Anything from plain to caramel-flavoured will taste delicious with this recipe.

Milk – Any milk, including dairy and non-dairy options, will work for these oats. Use your go-to dairy choice for this recipe.

See the recipe card for full information on ingredients and quantities.

Variations/ Adaptations

Here are a few ways to make these tiramisu overnight oats to your preference! Feel free to adjust the flavour by adding cinnamon, vanilla extract, cocoa powder, topping the oats with banana slices and berries, etc.

You can also make this recipe vegan by using non-dairy milk (like unsweetened almond milk), pure maple syrup instead of honey, non-dairy hot chocolate, and dairy-free yogurt.

Add a layer or dollop of nut butter if you want to amp up the healthy fats. Anything from peanut butter to almond butter will work for this variation. You can also increase the protein in this recipe by mixing in protein powder (chocolate or tiramisu is a favourite), chia seeds, or flax seeds. Instead of rolled oats, try this recipe with quinoa and steel cut oats.

Make this overnight oats tiramisu recipe gluten-free by using certified gluten-free oats. Most hot chocolate sachets are naturally gluten-free, but it doesn’t hurt to double-check before purchasing.

Tips for the best results

Use old-fashioned rolled oats
The best overnight oat recipes use rolled oats, which become super creamy as they set. I don’t recommend using quick oats, as their texture will be a bit off (they tend to become pasty).

Let the tiramisu overnight oats set for more than two hours
You can eat these overnight oats at two hours. However, the texture and flavour get even better if you set them for at least 4-5 hours (overnight, if possible).

Grab a spatula for smoothing
A spatula is the key to getting even layers when making this recipe. Be sure to have it out and ready to use for the best results.

Serving Suggestions

These tiramisu overnight oats are yummy as-is. Though, they also taste great with sliced strawberries or bananas on top. For a more filling breakfast, feel free to add a fruit salad and some scrambled eggs to the side.

Storage Instructions

Once you’ve assembled the tiramisu overnight oats, let them sit in the fridge for at least two hours. Then, enjoy whenever you want a yummy snack or a satisfying breakfast! There’s no need to warm them up; they’re meant to be eaten cold (like the dessert they’re inspired by!). These overnight oats will be good in the fridge for up to five days.

FAQs

Can I use a milk alternative instead of regular milk?

Yes! You can use non-dairy milk to create these tiramisu overnight oats. Use your favourite option: oat milk, almond milk, or coconut milk. If you’re sensitive to dairy, you can also use a non-dairy hot chocolate mix and non-dairy yoghurt to create this protein overnight oats with yogurt recipe.

What are the best oats to use for overnight oats?

I recommend using rolled oats to create these Greek yogurt overnight oats. As they sit in the milk, they soak in the moisture and become uber-creamy. You can also use instant oats, but they don’t get as creamy and can become pasty instead.

Can I use a plant-based yogurt?

Yes, a plant-based yogurt will also work for these overnight tiramisu oats. You can use your favourite brand of yogurt for this recipe.

How long does it take for overnight oats to be ready to eat?

The overnight oats only need to sit in the fridge for two hours before you can dig in. However, the oat mixture is best left for longer, as the liquid will have more time to soak in and the flavours will have time to mingle together.
