ingredients and Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Maple Overnight Oats. Be sure to scroll down to the recipe card at the bottom of this page for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

You can use organic or regular old fashioned rolled oats. I have not tested this recipe with quick oats, and steel cut oats will not work. To make this recipe gluten free, use certified gluten free rolled oats.

For a boost of protein which will help keep you full, add in a scoop of plant based protein powder! I love the one from Garden of Life or Ritual. Use unflavored or vanilla for best results. If you don’t want to add in protein you can just leave it out and reduce the liquid amount, see below for more details.

For a boost of fiber and nutrients add in ground flax and chia seeds.

You can use almond milk, coconut milk, oat milk, cashew milk or dairy milk.

Pure Maple syrup is necessary to give these oats that maple flavor. Make sure to check the ingredient list and use maple syrup that has only one ingredient- maple syrup. Pancake syrup is different and contains additives and corn syrup.

A touch of vanilla extract adds a lovely flavor to these oats.

Just a sprinkle of cinnamon to give these oats a warm flavor.

The next morning, finish these oats off with fresh blueberries and granola.

Tips and tricks

Mix together the dry ingredients first and then add in the wet. Failure to combine dry ingredients first may result in the chia seeds clumping together.

Store in an airtight container for maximum freshness.

If you don’t like the texture of overnight oats, try adding granola on top for some crunch.

How to serve and store

Serve these maple overnight oats with a cup of coffee or smoothie. You can warm them up in the microwave the next day if you prefer eating them warm.

Store these oats in an airtight container in the fridge and enjoy within 3-5 days.

My favorite containers for overnight oats

These are the jars that are shown in the photos, they are spice jars, but work great for overnight oats.

Alternatively, you can also use weck jars, mason jars, these glass jars with plastic lids, or these glass jars with a bamboo lids.

Taste and Texture

These maple oats are sweet and full of flavor. You taste the maple syrup, vanilla and cinnamon with each bite. The granola on top adds a lovely crunch and switches up the texture.

The texture is creamy and soft. If you don’t like the texture of overnight oats you can add granola on top or you can blend them and the texture will be more like pudding. Check out my blended overnight oats recipe for directions on how to do that.

frequently asked questions

How long will these oats last for in the fridge?

3-5 days when stored properly. Use an airtight container like the ones linked above.

Can I warm these oats up the next morning instead of eating them cold?

Yes, absolutely! Although I prefer eating mine cold, you can warm these oats up in the microwave for 30-60 seconds or until warm all the way through. Alternatively, you can use the stovetop.

How can I make this recipe gluten free?

Use certified gluten free oats.

What if I don’t want to use protein?

You can leave the protein powder out and reduce the milk by 1/4 cup.
