What will you need to make these overnight oats?

  • OATS: To make overnight oats you obviously need some oats! If you are like me following a gluten-free diet always opt for the certified gluten-free variety. I am personally fine with organic oats, they don’t cause me any trouble, but if your celiac disease is severe, please make sure your oats are GF certified.
  • I like my overnight oats mushy and creamy and that is why I am using quick-cooking oats. If you would like to have a little more texture and bite to it, then use the old-fashioned rolled oats. I don’t recommend using steel-cut oats as I found they don’t work as well.
  • MILK: You can use any kind of milk, almond, rice, oats or just cow’s milk.
  • YOGHURT: I use Greek yoghurt in this recipe because my boys don’t like the taste of coconut yoghurt, but if I make it for my self I would opt for coconut yoghurt to make it vegan.
  • TOASTED ALMOND AND COCONUT FLAKES: This is what makes these oats so special. The crunch from toasted nuts and coconut flakes are essential to this recipe.
  • MAPLE SYRUP: Maple syrup is our choice of sweetener. It is very versatile and unlike honey, it is very easy to incorporate into anything and it doesn’t need a long time to dissolve. It is also very neutral in taste and comes with over 24 different antioxidants. Some people suggest that the sweetness of the oats is enough, but this statement is clearly not true for our family. 🙂
  • ORANGE JUICE AND ZEST: I recommend that you use organic oranges in this recipe because you need orange zest. If organic oranges aren’t available, look for the unwaxed variety. If this is a problem too, use regular oranges, but leave the zest out.
