Overnight oats with Tiramisu for breakfast
I grew up in an Italian family as a child, and Tiramisu was always one of my favorite desserts.
Count me in. This breakfast version of a famous Italian dessert features fluffy oats flavored with coffee, a creamy and smooth yogurt topping, and a light dusting of cacao powder.
How to make oatmeal recipe
Combine the oats with the coffee, milk, vanilla, sugar, salt, and sweetener in a mason jar or lidded container.
Shake well and then refrigerate overnight.
When ready to eat, smooth a thin layer of yogurt over the coffee oatmeal. Enjoy! Dust with cocoa.
You can heat the oats in the microwave or a small pan on the stovetop before adding yogurt if you prefer hot.
You can garnish your oatmeal in a jar by adding cacao nibs, mini chocolate chips, or crushed coffee beans. Add sliced fruits, coconut flakes, or Coconut Whipped Cream.
Tiramisu overnight oat ingredients
This recipe uses rolled or quick oats (or oats), instant coffee powder, milk, sweetener, vanilla extract, vanilla or plain yogurt, or plant-based yogurt.
If you try it, please let me know how it goes.
You can use plain yogurt or strawberry yogurt. If you want plain yogurt, cream cheese, or coconut cream instead of unsweetened yogurt, add about a teaspoon of sweetener.
It can replace the yogurt in this recipe with mashed banana.
You can use all-purpose liquid or granulated sweeteners, such as regular sugar, coconut sugar, maple syrup, honey, or agave.
High protein healthy breakfast
What type of milk you use and the yogurt you select will determine how much protein you eat in your overnight oats. Greek yogurt, for example, will result in a more protein-rich breakfast.
Add a scoop to your favorite protein powder for an extra protein boost, and make them into Tiramisu overnight oats. Mix the powder into the base ingredients overnight or add it to the yogurt before eating.
Chia seeds are another favorite. Three grams of protein are in just one tablespoon of chia seeds. Chia seeds also contain a lot of calcium, iron, fiber, B vitamins, and vitamin B.

Milk of Choice, 2/3 cup
Instant coffee powder or espresso is 1 tsp.
