Tiramisu Oatmeal Recipe

Tiramisu overnight oats for breakfast

Growing up with an Italian family, tiramisu has always been one of my favorite desserts.

So if I can eat tiramisu every morning for breakfast and still be healthy???

Count me in. Fluffy coffee flavored oats, a smooth and creamy yogurt topping, and a dusting of cocoa powder make this the breakfast version of the popular Italian dessert.

Chocolate Coffee Tiramisu Oats

How to make the oatmeal recipe

Start by combining the oats, coffee, milk of choice, sweetener, pinch of salt, and vanilla extract in a lidded container or mason jar.

Screw the lid on tightly, shake well, and refrigerate overnight.

When ready to eat, smooth a layer of yogurt on top of the coffee oatmeal. Dust with cocoa powder, and enjoy.

If you prefer hot oats to cold oats, they can be heated in the microwave or in a small saucepan on the stove top before adding the yogurt.

Garnish your oats in a jar with cacao nibs or mini chocolate chips, crushed coffee beans, sliced fruit, shredded coconut, or Coconut Whipped Cream.

Arabica Coffee Beans

Tiramisu overnight oat ingredients

The recipe calls for rolled oats or quick oats, instant coffee powder, milk of choice, sweetener of choice, a pinch of salt, pure vanilla extract, plain or vanilla yogurt (plant based yogurt works too), and cocoa powder.

I have not tried substituting instant oats, quinoa flakes, or steel cut oats, so be sure to report back if you experiment.

The yogurt can be Greek yogurt, cocontmilk yogurt, plain yogurt, or even strawberry yogurt. If you wish to use unsweetened yogurt or sub cream cheese or coconut cream instead, I recommend stirring in about a tablespoon of sweetener.

As a fun flavor alternative, you can also replace the yogurt with mashed banana!

Any all purpose granulated or liquid sweetener works, including regular sugar or coconut sugar, pure maple syrup, honey, or agave, or erythritol for a sugar free recipe.

Tiramisu Overnight Oats

High protein healthy breakfast

The amount of protein in the overnight oats will depend on what type of milk and yogurt you choose. For example, Greek yogurt will yield a higher protein breakfast.

To add an extra protein boost and turn them into tiramisu protein overnight oats, you can include a scoop of your favorite protein powder. Mix the powder with the base ingredients the night before, or stir it into the yogurt right before eating.

I also love adding chia seeds. Just one tablespoon of chia seeds contains three grams of protein. Chia seeds are also high in calcium, iron, B vitamins, and fiber.

    I love Tiramisu and couldn’t wait to try this. Literally ran out and bought the products to have the next morning. It really did taste like the real deal. So excited to have this in the morning, or even as a snack!

    These are my new favorite overnight oats. SO easy to make, and so ridiculously delicious!! I use unsweetened plain greek yogurt and add some vanilla extract to that to use as my topping. Sprinkle some high-fat cocoa powder on top and dig in! This is definitely more like dessert than breakfast 🙂

  3. Stephanie says

    Could mascarpone cheese be mixed with the yogurt topping before adding to the oats? Would that change the taste too much? I look forward to trying these!

    My new favorite breakfast! Soooo good! I used 1/4 cup quick cooking steel cut oats and 1/4 regular oats. Also added some ground flax and hemp seeds. Thanks for the recipe Katie!

    I tried to print the receipt out with my color printer. I checked the box with the picture included, but the picture is not there in my print preview page. Did I do anything wrong? I like my recipe with that beautiful photo of the end product.

      Hi! Sorry for the trouble – our option to print an image with the recipe currently does not work and it’s on the list to fix the next time the blog goes through a redesign with someone more tech-savvy than I am. Sorry again for the trouble!

    This came out so delicious! When I entered the ingredients separately into myfitnesspal, it was not under 300. I’ll still keep eating it though, because it is THAT good!
