- Oats: either old-fashioned rolled oat or quick oats will work for overnight oats. For this recipe I like quick oats for creamier texture but if you prefer more of a “bite” and chewiness, go with rolled oats.
- Plain Yogurt: I used plain lowfat yogurt from Sonyfield but use whatever yogurt you like. Plant-based yogurt, such as coconut, oat or soy will work great for a vegan version.
- Milk: similarly to yogurt, the choice of milk is yours – any dairy of plant-based milk (almond, oat, soy, coconut) can be used in this recipe.
- Chia Seeds: for some extra fiber, protein and healthy fats. I used white chia seeds but black seeds will also work.
- Maple Syrup: to sweeten the oats. You can also use honey, monkfruit, coconut sugar or sweetener of choice.
- Vanilla: use real vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste for best flavor.
- Chocolate Wafers: I like to use chocolate wafers by Nabisco because they’re a bit less processed than Oreos. Most grocery stores carry them, at least in my area. If you prefer, you can use 2 crushed Oreo cookies instead.

How to make Oreo Overnight Oats
STEP 1: Break chocolate wafers or Oreo cookies into pieces.
STEP 2: Add yogurt, (plant) milk, maple syrup, chia seeds and vanilla.
STEP 3: Mix until combined. Avoid mixing too much to preserve distinct cookie pieces in your oats.
STEP 4: Place in the fridge for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
STEP 5: Serve and enjoy!
Serve Oreo overnight oats on their own or topped (or layered) with your favorite plain or vanilla yogurt and crushed Oreo cookies.
You can also make this overnight breakfast more fun (and nutritious) by adding:
- Sliced banana
- Fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries or raspberries)
- Chopped dried fruit
- Your favorite nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts)
- Pumpkin, chia or hemp seeds
- Chocolate chips
You can store Oreo overnight oats in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the fridge.
Just add a bit more plant milk. The thickness of overnight oats is a matter of preference. If you like them thinner, add more liquid and stir gently.
Yes, actually. There used to be animal fat in the u0022creamu0022 part of Oreos but these days Oreos are completely plant-based.
No but you can make them gluten-free by using gluten-free Oreo cookies and making sure your oats are certified gluten-free.
