These Biscoff overnight oats are everything you need in a breakfast! They have a delicious flavor and crunch that pairs well with oatmeal mixed with vanilla or cinnamon protein powder!
Don’t feel bad if you’ve never heard of Biscoff cookies. The truth is, I was in the same boat not too long ago. But then I started researching all of the different toppings I could use for my overnight oats.
One day I came across a package of Biscoff in my local grocery store. These small crunchy cookies offer a unique caramel flavor that pairs well with coffee, or on their own.
I was surprised at just how good they tasted. Even though Lotus Bakeries is a Belgian company, their products can be found worldwide. I can’t believe I never tried them until now!
This simple cookie led me to create this amazing Biscoff overnight oats recipe. They’re also not too bad for you either (as far as cookies go). One serving of 4 biscuits is 150 calories, 23g carbs, 6g fat, and 2g protein.
- Oats: You can use any kind of oats for this recipe. I prefer rolled oats, because they don’t get soggy (like quick oats do) when submerged in milk overnight.
- Milk: There are so many different kinds of milk you can use as well. Here I’m using reduced fat milk, but oat milk, almond milk, and soy milk are also good options.
- Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt is a great way to add creaminess and additional protein to your overnight oats. For this recipe I’m using Fage 0% Total.
- Whey protein: Throwing in a small amount of whey protein powder will make this recipe so much better. Plus, eating more protein will help keep you full.
- Vanilla extract: Sometimes the tiny ingredients make the biggest difference. Using a dash of vanilla extract will add a nice vanilla taste to your Biscoff overnight oats.
- Cinnamon: A sprinkle of cinnamon will also top off the flavors in this recipe. Some people say that ground cinnamon has a sweet and woody taste.
- Biscoff cookies: This recipe wouldn’t be possible without Biscoff cookies! As I briefly mentioned above, this unique treat has hints of caramel.
These Biscoff overnight oats are delicious and easy to make. You can scroll down to the recipe card for more detailed instructions. Here’s an overview of the general steps:
Place rolled oats, reduced fat milk, Greek yogurt, protein powder, vanilla extract, and cinnamon in a mason jar. Avoid using an 8 ounce mason jar, because it won’t be large enough to hold all of the ingredients.
If you’re looking for the best size, a 16 ounce jar is ideal for this recipe. It has enough space to hold everything with plenty of room for additional toppings. Make sure to stir all of the ingredients around before sealing the lid.
Allow the oats sit in the refrigerator overnight so they can soften. The longer your oats are in the fridge, the creamier they will be.
Then all you need to do is take the overnight oats out from the refrigerator and stir one more time. Make sure to crush up your Biscoff cookies before adding them on top of your overnight oats.
