Chia Almond Overnight Oats
This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almondmilk. Easy Chia Almond Overnight Oats, perfect for a quick and nutritious breakfast.
Hey guys! I have another breakfast recipe for you this week. This one is just so simple to prepare and tastes delicious. These Chia Almond Overnight Oats are made with a few simple ingredients, you don’t need to worry anymore. They are gluten free, dairy free and vegan (if you skip the yogurt).
The thing with breakfast – I can not call myself a “breakfast person”. I like my breakfast smoothie!
But I usually do my best to try different breakfast recipes, whenever I can. And I love easy, little time-consuming ones. Any overnight breakfast sounds good to me. I love the idea of preparing something at night and then having it ready to eat in the morning.
One of my new years resolutions has been to have a healthy breakfast every morning. And I have been sticking to it for now. Almond Breeze Almondmilk has helped me a lot with it. I use it for smoothies, pancakes, crepes, granola, cereal or oats. It is low calorie that regular dairy milk, gluten free and tastes amazing.
I have not had much success with overnight oats so far. I only tried making them once, but they did not turn as creamy and delicious as this time. I guess the use of almond milk brought some great flavors and the addition of chia seeds make this oatmeal super creamy.
All you need to do is combine old-fashioned oats, almond milk, yogurt and chia seeds in a jar. Stir to combine and let it sit in the fridge overnight. In the morning you can add some sweetener, vanilla extract or cinnamon, top with fruit of your choice, serve and enjoy!
Chia Almond Overnight Oats
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 cup Almond Breeze Almondmilk — (you can add up to 1 1/4 cup)
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 2 tbsp Greek yogurt
- sweetener of your choice — (optional, I do not add any)
- 2-3 drops vanilla extract — (optional)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon — (optional)
- fresh fruit like sliced bananas — , tangerines and blueberries for serving
In a bowl or a mason jar, combine almond milk, oats, chia seeds and Greek yogurt. Stir well and cover with plastic wrap or a lid. Refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, add sweetener, vanilla and cinnamon if you'd like. Divide between 2 cups and top with fruit.

These overnight oats look perfect, Mira! I’ve only made them a few times, but I’m definitely hooked. Love the addition of chia seeds in here! Delish!
I love overnight oats!!! so simple and so delicious!!!! love this, Mira!
This is my kind of breakfast, healthy and easy. Can’t wait to try it.
I love your use of Greek yourt in these chia cups! I love chia pudding, but never added Greek Yogurt to it – definitely a must try! Thanks for the inspiration Mira!
I’m not much of a breakfast person either, Mira. I usually just have a yogurt at work mid-morning to hold me over until lunch. My husband is a breakfast person and loves overnight oats, so I’ve been experimenting with them lately too! These look so pretty with the combination of the colors of the fruit on top!
I am a breakfast person, but i’m also a smoothie person… and I am definitely an overnight oats type of girl as well! 😉 This looks fabulous, Mira! LOVE the chia in here! And yesss to Almond Breeze Almondmilk – that is my go to as well! #GreatMinds! Need to add this to my oat rotation! Pinned! Cheers, girlfriend!
I love overnight oats – they’re perfect for a busy morning! And as usual, you make it look so pretty 🙂
We were completely on the same wavelength on this campaign with chai overnight oats weren’t we, Mira? 🙂 Love these oats and almond milk is my favorite milk to use in overnight oats!
We totally are! Loved the flavors in yours!
I’m a breakfast person and a smoothie person but I’ve never tried the overnight oatmeals…I love this idea! Pinned!
Oatmeal and overnight oats are my favorite ways to start the morning! These look SO good, Mira! Love the chia seeds and almond milk in here!
I love overnight oats. The addition of chia seeds just adds another element of texture and nutrition that I love too.
Mira, these overnights oats look yummy! I’ve been making oats like this lately, so I’m excited to try your flavor idea. And your photography is stunning. Really love the wood!!
What a great no-cook recipe! I’m certainly not a morning person and am usually too rushed and lazy to cook breakfast, so I would love to have such beautiful and delicious breakfast waiting for me in the morning! Great recipe!
You can never go wrong with overnight oats, and I love that there’s chia involved too! Overnight oats meets chia pudding?!!? Looks delicious!
No doubt, I’m a smoothie girl too Mira! I get it! This past year I starting trying out different combos of overnight oats and porridge… and just a few months ago, chia pudding. OMGeee I am hooked! I think breakfast is my favorite meal of the day because sometimes it’s like dessert! This looks fabulous my dear and is just ooozing with goodness! Delicious!
Is it vegan though? You say it is, but then you added greek yogurt? What would you recommend to make it vegan?
Hi sorry, it is not vegan. Ypu can skip the yogurt to make it vegan.
