Overnight oats are a healthy, delicious, make-ahead breakfast. These oats are dairy-free and can easily be made gluten-free (gluten-free rolled oats)
For the past couple of months, I have been trying to limit my dairy intake. This means I no longer eat cereal. My go-to breakfast lately has been scrambled eggs, but they are time-consuming to make in the morning, especially if you need to get out the door fast. With these overnight oats, you can prepare them the day before and in a big batch, that way you don’t have to worry about making breakfast in the morning. Since I have been avoiding dairy, I have used almond milk instead of regular milk or yoghurt.
Dairy-free Overnight Oats with Banana and Cinnamon
- 1/2 cup rolled oats

- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- Add 1/2 a banana and cinnamon, maple syrup, and vanilla in a jar and mash with a fork.
- Add the chia seeds and the rolled oats.
- Slice the remainder of the banana and add on top of the rolled oats.
- Add the almond milk and let the oats soak overnight in the fridge.
- Mix well before eating.
The great thing about these oats, is that they are like a canvas. Take the basis, oats, almond milk, and chia seeds then add your favourite toppings. You could add mixed berries, coconut, nuts, peanut butter, vanilla, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, matcha powder, protein powder.. the options are endless. You will never get bored, as there are so many options.
This recipe is super simple and healthy. One jar of my Overnight Oats with Banana and Cinnamon is 1500 kilojoules, which is roughly 380 calories. Because it is full of fibre, it will help you feel full for a longer period and with help your body “function”. 😂
Store Overnight Oats in a jar so you can simply take away.
