Ingredients and substitutions

You can use any type of rolled oats in this recipe. While oats are naturally gluten free, you can choose oats that are specifically labelled gluten free if you need to avoid cross contamination with gluten.

Any type of milk will work in this recipe so use whatever suits your taste and dietary requirements. Oat milk is a tasty, plant-based option that complements the flavor of the cinnamon in this dish.

Two teaspoons of maple syrup gives these oats a subtle yet satisfying sweetness, but you can adjust the amount to your taste (or omit it altogether if you prefer your oats unsweetened).

I included chia seeds as an optional ingredient in these overnight oats. This dish is delicious with or without the chia seeds – they just add some extra creaminess, texture, and nutrients.

How to make it

Start by adding the oats, plant-based milk, maple syrup, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt (plus the optional chia seeds, if desired) to a bowl or container.
