Coconut Overnight Oats


  • 1 & 1/2 Cups of Gluten Free Oats (150g)
  • 1/2 Cup of Desiccated Coconut (45g)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Chia Seeds
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Vanilla Powder or 1 Vanilla Pod
  • 200ml of Coconut Milk
  • 350ml of Nut Milk
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of Maple Syrup

Optional: Blueberries

These coconut overnight oats are super quick to prep and so delicious- you can serve them around the table or straight out of the jar at your desk. If I’m at home I’ll elevate it with some stewed blueberries and seeds, if you’re on the go all you’ll need is a spoon- both ways are good!

Add the oats, desiccated coconut and chia seeds to a large bowl and mix well. Then mix in the vanilla powder.

Whisk together the coconut milk, nut milk and maple syrup.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry while mixing.

Transfer the mixture into a large jar, or individual serving containers and refrigerate overnight or for minimum 3 hours.

Serve the next day or up to 3 days later, with a dash more nut milk to moisten. If you want to it can also be heated.

To make the stewed blueberry topping just add a punnet of berries to a saucepan with a tablespoon or two of water (and some maple syrup/honey if you want it sweeter) and simmer for about 3 minutes, then mash with a fork.
