Introducing the perfect breakfast for busy mornings: Matcha Overnight Oats. Made with a delicious blend of rolled oats, plant-based milk, yogurt and matcha powder, this nutrient–packed gluten-free breakfast recipe is easy to prepare and packed with energy-boosting ingredients.
- ~ ½ cup (50 gr) rolled oats
- 1 tsp (3 gr) to 1.5 tsp (4.5 gr) matcha powder
- 3 tbsp (45 ml) warm water (around 70°C / 160 °F)
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- ~ ½ cup (120 ml) almond milk
- 1/3 cup (80 gr) soy yogurt
- 1/2 cup (~ 60 gr) raspberries (fresh or frozen)
- 1–2 tbsp chopped pistachios
- Mix the matcha powder and warm water in a small bowl or jar until the matcha has dissolved. Set aside.
- In a small bowl or jar, combine the rolled oats and soy yogurt.
- Pour the matcha mixture into the bowl with the oat mixture.
- Finally, add the maple syrup to the bowl.
- Mix until all ingredients are well incorporated and the matcha is evenly distributed.
- Cover the bowl (or jar) and refrigerate overnight, or for at least 6 hours, so the oats can absorb the liquids and soften.
- Pour the matcha overnight oats into a glass to serve.
- Leave a bit of space for the raspberries and other toppings.
- Place the fresh or frozen raspberries on top of the matcha overnight oats and add some crunch with, for example, pistachios if you wish.
When you’re ready to eat, give the oats a quick stir and enjoy them cold or warm them up in the microwave.
- Make ahead for busy mornings.
Prepare a bigger batch to have breakfast ready for the entire week. Just be sure to store the oats in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
If you are making a single serving, use a mason jar or any container with a lid to store the oats in the fridge overnight.
If you’re using rolled oats, be sure to use old-fashioned oats rather than quick oats. Quick oats will become too mushy and lose their texture when soaked overnight.
- Almond milk
Swap out the almond milk for your favorite milk alternative, such as soy milk, oat milk, or coconut milk. You can also use regular dairy milk if you prefer.
Add some extra flavor and nutrition by mixing in other ingredients like chia seeds, hemp seeds, or chopped nuts.
If you are using chia seeds in this recipe, use no more than about 2 tablespoons of chia seeds and increase the almond milk to ¾ cup instead of half a cup.
Adjust the sweetness level by using more or less maple syrup or by substituting it with coconut sugar, date syrup, or agave nectar.
Adding half a teaspoon of vanilla extract will also give this recipe a sweeter, more dessert-like flavor.
- Try different toppings
The raspberries in this recipe are just one option for topping your Matcha Overnight Oats. You can also try adding sliced bananas, blueberries, strawberries, diced mango, chopped apples, chopped nuts, peanut butter, or shredded coconut for added flavor and texture.
