  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds
  • ½ cup plant-based (or nut) milk
  • ½ cup vegan yogurt
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup


  • To a jar, add all of the ingredients. Stir them nicely, place a lid on the jar, and refrigerate overnight, or for at least 2 hours.
  • When you're ready to serve, garnish it with fresh strawberries, hemp seeds, and a drizzle of maple syrup. Alternatively, you can use any garnish you like.



Tips for the best Vegan Overnight Oats

  • Go with old fashioned oats. Quick cook (instant) oats don't have an ideal texture because they are cut smaller to cook faster. But in a pinch, they work, too.
  • Use a lidded jar. This is best for storing, mixing, and portioning. The tight-fitting lid keeps out the arid air from the refrigerator so your Vegan Overnight Oats don't dry out.
  • Stir thoroughly. It's important to carefully stir the ingredients before putting them in the fridge. Dry patches of oats will remain if they aren't mixed in with the yogurt.
  • Let it sit overnight. Try not to rush this delicious dish. The longer it sits, the more the flavors will soak into the oats and soften them, while still holding on to their great texture.

How to Store

Store these Vegan Overnight Oats in a tightly lidded container, like a mason jar, for up to 5 days. This is when they have the best taste and texture. Enjoy them straight from the fridge.
