How To Make Tiramisu Overnight Oats
It’s very easy to make overnight oats and to make a tiramisu-style version, you need:
- Old-fashioned rolled oats or quick oats.
- Chia seeds – black or white chia seeds work.
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
- Freshly brewed coffee – at room temperature or lukewarm. You can also use instant coffee and rehydrate two teaspoons in 1/2 cup of lukewarm water to stir in the oat mixture.
- Vanilla extract
- Unsweetened almond milk or any non-dairy milk you like, including oat milk, coconut milk, or peanut milk.
- Maple syrup or any liquid sweetener you like.
Vanilla Mascarpone Layer
To make healthy tiramisu overnight oats, you choose to make a high-protein dairy-free mascarpone layer.
The ingredients we used are:
- Dairy-free Greek yogurt – you can use soy Greek-style yogurt to boost the protein or coconut yogurt for a creamier, thicker texture.
- Vanilla protein powder
- Maple syrup
First, in a large airtight container, stir all the dry ingredients: old-fashioned oats, chia seeds, unsweetened cocoa powder, and salt.
Now, stir in the liquid ingredients: brewed coffee – it’s fine if it’s lukewarm, almond milk, and maple syrup.
Stir until all ingredients are evenly combined, and the oats are fully coated with the liquids.
Close the container’s lid and place it in the fridge overnight or for at least 5 hours.
On the day, prepare the healthy mascarpone layer.
In a mixing bowl, whisk yogurt of choice, vanilla protein powder, and maple syrup. Add a bit more yogurt or almond milk to thin out if too thick.
Now, remove the overnight oats from the fridge and assemble the jar.
Coffee Overnight Oats Jars
To make a tiramisu jar, start by adding a layer of chocolate coffee overnight oats, then top with 2-3 tablespoons of protein vanilla yogurt mixture.
Repeat these steps until you reach the top of the jar, finishing with a thick layer of the yogurt mixture.
Sieve unsweetened cocoa powder on top of the jar and enjoy immediately.
This recipe serves two jars, and you can make the jars ahead up to 2 days before.
Cover the top of the glass mason jar with a lid or piece of plastic wrap to keep the overnight oats moist and creamy.
You can store overnight oats in the fridge for up to 3 days in an airtight container if not combined with yogurt.
You can freeze overnight oats and thaw them in the fridge the day before.
