I feel like no words I could type could do this recipe justice. Nor could the pictures, because I don’t think the photos look appetizing.

But I could not keep this healthy breakfast to myself. This is the most delicious, indulgent, dessert like way to eat overnight oats.

These overnight oats are thicker than regular overnight oats, because I tripled the liquid, using almond milk, and pre-cooked the oatmeal.

Some people like to add yogurt to their overnight oats, like I do here. I love to do this as well because it gets nice and creamy, and increases the protein.

But this recipe does not need the yogurt! It’s creamy on it’s own.

How to make overnight oats with almond milk

Head down to the recipe card to see my simple 30 second video on how to make this.

But the summary is: Use three times the liquid to oats. Cook for about 3 minutes. Then put it in the fridge till morning.

Once you remove from the fridge, add your super sweet, zero calorie glaze on top!

The ingredients I used:

The calories on overnight oats can get out of control if you aren’t measuring and limiting your oats and other ingredients.   So, here are my tips for keeping calories down and flavor HIGH!

  • Oats. I always use 1/3 cup oats because I know it will be 100 calories. This makes tracking easy, and I don’t feel like I’ve used too many calories just on oatmeal. The first bite tastes just as good as the last. No reason to over do it! This is kind of an important step because traditional overnight oats can skyrocket in calories if you aren’t watching out!
  • Almond milk: I love the 30 calorie unsweetened vanilla almond milk. It’s been great for protein shakes as well as my oatmeal!
  • Almond extract. This really delivers the flavor in a STRONG way. If you like the flavor of almond extract, this is your recipe!
  • Poppy seeds. You only need 1/2 tablespoons (25 calories). I started with 1 tablespoon, and while it was good, it was a bit excessive. I had poppy seeds all over my teeth!
  • THE GLAZE: Have you tried zero calorie powdered sugar yet? Mixed with a tiny bit of water, it makes the prefect glaze! Lakanto has one I used, and it tastes just like a full sugar sweetener.

So, first- check out the video in the recipe card and then give it a try yourself! Definitely let me know what you think of these almond poppy seed overnight oats!

  • Cover with plastic wrap and chill overnight in the fridge.
  • Remove from fridge after oatmeal has gelled together. Turn onto a plate.
