These Tiramisu Overnight Oats are super nourishing, delicious, and easy to make. The layer of creamy overnight oats, silken cacao, and coffee cream blend together with the yogurt and decadent chocolate to create a fabulous and delicious start to your day!

If caffeine doesn’t agree with you, or if you’d like to enjoy this dish as dessert at night, I’d suggest using a shot of decaf coffee (that’s what we do).

Now, is it actually a breakfast, or is it so decadent that it should be classed as a dessert? Try it, and let me know in the comments below!

Ingredient Notes

  • Soy Yogurt: A great source of plant-based protein. You can also use other dairy-free yogurt.
  • Oats: For the best texture, opt for rolled oats. They are a great source of fiber (mostly beta-glucan, which is great for cholesterol regulation) and minerals.
  • Medjool Dates: Natural sweeteners that also add fiber.
  • Chia Seeds: Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Cacao Powder: A delicious, rich source of antioxidants and magnesium.

How to Make these Overnight Oats (Summary)

Combine all the ingredients for the oats and let them set in the fridge overnight. Blend the Cacao Coffee Cream ingredients and also let them set in the fridge for at least an hour. When ready to serve, layer the oats and cream in a glass, jar or bowl. Top with some soy yogurt and a dusting of cacao powder. Enjoy your nourishing Tiramisu Overnight Oats!

Tips & Variations

  • Protein boost: add some neutral-flavored or vanilla-flavored protein powder to the overnight oats to make them even higher in protein.
  • No almond extract: Substitute with vanilla extract instead.
  • Coffee & nutrient absorption: Coffee impacts the absorption of certain nutrients. If you’re working on maximizing nutrient absorption (such as zinc or iron) or have an underlying deficiency, we always recommend enjoying coffee 1 hour away from food.
  • Dessert style: I also love to make mini versions for a delicious sweet way to end the day.

FAQ

Is this recipe gluten-free?

Yes, make sure to use gluten-free certified oats if needed.

Can I use other types of milk?

Sure, almond or oat or oat milk would go perfectly with this recipe.

What if I’m allergic to soy?

You can use another type of plant milk and a different type of yogurt; one that has a similar thickness to Greek-style yogurt is best, but coconut yogurt would be another option.

Can I do this without coffee/espresso?

Of course, you can leave it out! The traditional Tiramisu recipe uses espresso, so as long as you don’t mind it not tasting quite as close to the original dessert, it’s absolutely fine. It’ll still be delicious!
