Bringing all the warm and cozy chai spices to a classic, easy breakfast option – overnight oats! This recipe is simple to make ahead, store in the fridge, then grab and go in the morning!
You already know overnight oats are an all-time favourite breakfast of mine. I love how easy, quick, and healthy they are! There’s nothing better than knowing your breakfast is prepped and ready for you when you’ve got a busy weekday morning ahead.
Since it’s fall, I figured I have to share my own fall twist on overnight oats. I feel like chai is such a delicious, yet underrated flavour so I thought I’d try my hand at making chai overnight oats! The result was an incredibly flavourful, satisfying, yet simple breakfast option. You’re gonna love it!
What is Chai Spice?
The most common chai spices are cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and pepper. Yep – pepper! Allspice is also often used, and I included it in my recipe, too!
This mixture of spices produces an almost warming, soothing affect when consumed. I would describe anything with chai with the word cozy. Whether it’s a latte, a mug of tea, or a jar of overnight oats – if it’s chai, it’s cozy!
Why You’ll Love Chai Overnight Oats:
Number one, they’re so easy to make. I can’t stress it enough! If you’re on the go and need a delicious breakfast to take with you as you hurry out the door, you have to try this recipe!
You can customize them to your liking. Just like regular oatmeal, what makes overnight oats super delicious is their toppings! I recommend topping your chai spiced overnight oats with nut butter and some fruit! To pair well with the chai spice, try using banana, apple or pear slices.
They’re a great meal prep option. This recipe makes 3 servings, so you can prep them at the start of your week. This way you’ll have healthy, quick breakfasts for the upcoming 3 days. It’s just one less think you’ll have to think about come Monday morning. 🙂
A Few Notes About This Recipe:
Store your overnight oats in the fridge overnight. In the morning, the result is a creamy, yummy, oat mixture that can be served hot or cold.
Overnight oats store well in the fridge for 3-4 days!
If you want to make this recipe vegan, you can always substitute the greek yogurt for a plant-based yogurt alternative. Or you can remove the yogurt all together and double the amount of milk that this recipe calls for.
