Overnight oats made with all the delicious flavors of a tiramisu cake but in a breakfast version.
A typical tiramisu cake is espresso-soaked lady finger cookies layered with a rich mascarpone cheese and dusted with shaved chocolate. In my breakfast version of tiramisu overnight oats we crush up the lady finger cookies to use as a layer in between our coffee soaked oats. Also nestled in between is a layer of Greek yogurt to mimic the creamiest of mascarpone cheese.
You’re probably wondering if this recipe is actually good for breakfast. Will it be too sweet? Is it a healthy breakfast option? The answer is yes!
Here’s Why Overnight Oats are a Healthy Breakfast Option:
Overnight oats are rich in fiber and protein. When you add chia seeds into the mix, the fiber source is upped even further. Oats in general contain a ton of vitamins and minerals that support a balanced diet and a healthy gut. With the addition of chia seeds the overnight oat mixture will be even creamier and thicker, which in result will keep you feeling satisfied longer.
What Ingredients are Needed for Tiramisu Overnight Oats?
Rolled Oats: To make this recipe gluten-free, use certified old fashioned rolled oats.
Chia Seeds: Add fiber and act as a thickener to the oats mixture.
Lady Fingers: To make this recipe gluten-free, omit the lady fingers. They are not necessary to achieve the tiramisu flavor, simply a fun textural element.
Coffee: Just a few tablespoons of brewed coffee or espresso of your choosing. Too much and the coffee flavor is really overpowering.
Almond Milk: Or any other milk of choice (dairy or non-dairy).
Greek Yogurt: Acts as the cream element and adds extra protein! Make sure it’s plain yogurt.
Cacao Powder: Can substitute for cocoa powder or a chocolate protein powder to add a protein boost!
