Prep: 5Total: 5 minutes
Servings: 1 1x



  • ¾ cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • ½ cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


Berries and Honey

  • ½ cup raspberries, blueberries, or chopped strawberries
  • 1 teaspoon honey, drizzled on top

Peanut Butter Banana

  • ½ banana, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter, drizzled on top

Apple Pie

  • ½ cup diced apples
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pecans
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup, drizzled on top

Magic Cookie Bars

  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pecans
  • 12 tablespoons chocolate chips


  1. Combine: Add the coconut milk, rolled oats, maple syrup, chia seeds, and vanilla extract to large glass container and mix until combined. Seal with a lid or cover with food storage wrap and store in the refrigerator overnight, or at least 5 hours. 
  2. Stir: The next morning (or when you’re ready to eat it), remove the lid and stir well. Thin with a little water or milk if desired.
  3. Add toppings: Eat plain or add your favorite toppings. If using one of the topping combinations, sprinkle the ingredients listed on top of the overnight oats just before eating. Enjoy!


  1. Coconut milk in a can or carton will work in this recipe! If you use canned coconut milk, the mixture will be thicker.
  2. You can eat this cold or warm, whatever you prefer! To warm: heat in the microwave for 45-60 seconds, or transfer the oats to a saucepan and heat over medium heat until warm.
  3. Add a variety of toppings, including fresh berries, sliced bananas, a drizzle of peanut butter, chocolate chips, nuts, shredded coconut, or granola. You can even mix in a scoop of protein powder.
  4. Overnight oats will keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days with fresh coconut milk in a sealed airtight container, though they taste best when eaten within 48 hours. 
  5. This is great for meal prep. Just lay out all of the jars you plan to use and mix up each batch individually.
  6. For gluten free overnight oats, use certified gluten free oats.
