5 from 1 review

An easy, make-ahead breakfast, these Matcha Overnight Oats are a meal that will keep you full for hours.



optional toppings:


  1. In a 16oz jar (or larger), combine all of your ingredients from steel cut oats to milk, and stir well until thoroughly mixed. You can also seal jar and shake.
  2. You can divide oats into two 8oz jars, or keep in one large jar. Allow matcha oats to thicken overnight, or at least 4 hours, until liquid is absorbed. Check for desired thickness in the morning – stir in a couple tablespoons of more milk if desired.
  3. Add your toppings like blueberries, crunchy granola, nut butter, etc. and enjoy straight from the jar.


OATS: You may replace steel cut oats with 1/4 of quick or rolled oats, I just enjoy the texture of steel cut better!

Protein powder: You may need a few more tablespoons of liquid depending on protein powder used. Simply check your overnight oats in the morning or after 4 hours and if the mixture is very thick, stir in 2-3 more tablespoons of milk. There is no added sugar in this recipe, because the protein powder I typically use is sweetened. If you’re looking for a little sweeter flavor, I suggest pure maple syrup.

Cook time refers to overnight fridge time.

Overnight oats can be prepped ahead of time up to 3 days.
