Key Ingredients

  • Rolled OatsRolled oats, also known as old fashioned oats, are the best kind of oats to use for overnight oats, because they absorb the liquid the best. However, if you only have quick oats on hand, you can use them too!
  • Raisins: It wouldn’t be a classic oatmeal raisin cookie without any raisins.
  • Banana: Adding half of a ripe banana to the recipe makes this breakfast sweet. Also, the riper the banana, the sweeter your breakfast will be.
  • Peanut Butter: This overnight oats recipe calls for creamy peanut butter to top. I suggest using peanut butter, made with 1 ingredient, peanuts. However, if you don’t have have peanut butter, you can use any nut or seed butter that you enjoy.
  • Cinnamon: Adding a pinch of cinnamon, truly takes this oatmeal cookie recipe to the next level. Feel free to add extra.
  • Maple Syrup: Just a little to sweeten the oats. You can also sub the maple syrup for coconut sugar.
  • Vanilla Extract: Just a little, but you can totally omit.
  • Non-dairy Milk: Any non-dairy milk will work. I personally used unseewetend almond milk in this recipe.
  • FlaxseedsFlaxseeds are loaded with nutrients, rich in omega-3 fats, rich in dietary fiber, and you can’t even taste them. They are completely optional and can be replaced with additional chia seeds, so no problem if you don’t have them…yet!

Usually, you don’t eat oatmeal cookies with toppings, however with this cookie recipe, you can get away with it! Customize your cookie overnight oats recipe with your favorite toppings.

Overnight Oats FAQs

ARE OVERNIGHT OATS HEALTHY?

Overnight oats are a great breakfast option! They’re loaded with fiber and give you lasting energy throughout the morning. The addition of creamy peanut butter and flaxseeds in this recipe also provide some healthy fats, extra nutrients, and essential minerals for you.

HOW LONG DO OVERNIGHT OATS LAST?

Typically, overnight oats last for 4-5 days in the fridge, however they’re best to be enjoyed within a couple of days, since the oats will become softer in texture.

DO YOU EAT THEM HOT OR COLD?

However you want! Overnight oats are typically enjoyed cold. However, if you’re not a fan of cold breakfasts, then just pop them into the microwave or add them to the stove to heat them up, after they soak overnight.
