Chai Overnight Oats

These Chai oats are perfect for anytime of year when you just need a little calm in your life. Serve cold or warm with some tea (maybe Chai?) to soothe your soul.

Now that I've started on an Overnight Oats kick, I just can't stop. A few days ago was Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats, and next up is Almond Joy (my all-time favorite). Overnight Oats are the best mainly because you don't have to cook the oats. The convenience factor is a big one, but the taste is the real winner. There are so many clever ways to create oats and seeing as how I'm not a big fan of hot oats, these are my go-to breakfast for any time of year.

Chai is especially good for any season. Somehow with all the spices combined and the fullness of oats with a side of nice, hot tea I just want to go "ahhhhhh" and I think all of us could use a moment of zen any morning. I love topping mine with nuts like almonds, walnuts, or pecans, maybe some coconut flakes and chocolate chips, and always a little drizzle of either honey or maple syrup. Do I have a sweet tooth? Why yes I do. Many times I'll also add some slices of banana if they're nice and ripe and Baby R loves this idea too!


For One Serving

1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (certified gluten-free for allergies)

3/4 cup milk, almond milk, or soy milk (I like mine with soy milk)

1 tbsp ground flax meal

1/8 tsp cardamom

1/8 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp vanilla extract

1/8 tsp ground ginger

Dash of nutmeg

1/2 tbsp maple syrup

Optional toppings: nuts, coconut flakes (unsweetened), chocolate chips, honey, maple syrup, etc.


1. Grab a mason jar or airtight container.

2. Mix all ingredients together, except the optional toppings, inside the container.

3. Seal container and leave in the refrigerator overnight.

4. In the morning, enjoy your oats cold or slightly warmed with any of the optional toppings or whatever your creative mind can come up with! Enjoy!
