  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger

  • Pinch of ground clove, optional
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (or more to taste)
  • 1tsp blackstrap molasses
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp dairy-free chocolate chips


Based Ingredients

  1. Add your oats, chia seeds and salt to an airtight container and give a good mix.

Sugar Cookie Oats

  1. Place your milk in a microwave safe dish and heat up for about a minute to heat through (keep an eye on the milk to make sure it doesn’t overflow in the microwave). Add the sugar cookie tea bag and allow to steep for 4 minutes. Remove the teabag from the milk and carefully squeeze the bag to release any trapped liquid then discard.
  2. Pour the milk over the oat mixture and add the yogurt, liquid sweetener and almond extract. Give the oats a good mix and place in the fridge to set overnight (or for at least 1 hour before consuming). When ready to serve, top as desired.

Pecan Pie Oats

  1. Chop up 2 tablespoons worth of pecans. Add 1 tablespoon of the chopped pecans to your oats along with the milk, yogurt, 1 tablespoon of maple syrup and cinnamon then mix well and place in the fridge for at least an hour.
  2. In a separate small bowl combine the nut butter, molasses, remaining teaspoon of maple syrup, brown sugar and water and whisk until fully combined. Fold in the rest of the chopped pecans and then spread the mixture on top of the oats and top with the remaining pecan halves. Store in the fridge until ready to eat.

Chocolate Gingerbread Overnight Oats

  1. Add the cocoa powder and spices to the oats and give a good mix. Add the milk and yogurt along with the molasses, vanilla and chocolate chips.
  2. Stir the mixture well then place in the fridge to set overnight (or for at least 1 hour before consuming). When ready to serve, top as desired.


Adjust the sweetness to your liking. Taste varies from person to person, so if you know you tend not to like sweet things, use less sweetener. You can also add more if you feel like it needs more.

Mix your oats and chia seeds before pouring in the milk or make sure that you plan to mix the oats immediately after adding in the milk. This will help prevent the chia seeds from clumping together and make your oats creamier in texture after it sets.

Batch prep your oats. If making one flavor, triple the recipe and combine all the ingredients in one large bowl then mix well and divide between containers. You can also batch all 3 different flavors in one go. Divide your dry ingredients between containers and then pour in the separated flavors and liquids and mix individually.
