Raspberry Almond Overnight Oats

raspberryalmondovernightoats

This week I am working on an overnight oats tutorial – it should be posted later in the week. Anyway, I discovered overnight oats earlier this year and every time I post a new recipe I get tons of questions. Instead of trying to answer them individual in the comments or through email I decided to put together a tutorial to help everyone out. Kind of like my mason jar salad and green smoothie tutorials. You have questions and I am here to answer them – or at least try my best.

As I put together the tutorial I am creating a couple new overnight oats recipes. The first one is this delicious raspberry almond overnight oats. The second one has a little tropical flare with pineapple and toasted coconut. Mmmmm. That one will also be posted later this week.

For the raspberry almond overnight oats recipe I used rolled oats, frozen raspberries, coconut milk, chia seeds, sliced almonds, and pure maple syrup. All the ingredients I had on hand in the refrigerator and pantry so this recipe was easy to throw together.

I did use a little extra maple syrup. Typically, I only need about 1-2 teaspoons to get the level of sweetness I like. However, raspberries are tart so I used one more teaspoon and that did the trick. I stirred in 2 teaspoons when I mixed the ingredients then add 1 more in the morning.

As always I used coconut milk. You can use almond or dairy if you wish. Coconut is my favorite and I always have it available in my fridge to use for smoothies.

The sliced almonds were added in the morning. This gives the texture a nice crunch.

I was not sure how I would feel about raspberries in my overnight oats but I loved them. Plus they add a lot of nutritional value. One serving is 11 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein so this jar of oats will keep your tummy very full.

Here are my other overnight oats recipes:

Blueberry coconut

Pumpkin spice

Cherry vanilla flax

Salted turtle

Banana Peanut Butter

Peanut Butter and Chocolate

  1. Ok…I am intrigued. I have become such a good lunch eater since I have discovered your mason jar salads. I also am a HORRIBLE breakfast eater. I do not like to sit and eat at home. I like to eat at my desk in my classroom while I am getting things done. I may try these overnight oats and I am looking forward to the tutorial!

  2. Christie Hardin says:

    What size mason jar for overnight oats?

    • Pint size jars work best. The jars are only about 1/2 – 3/4 full depending on the variety but it gives you room for stirring without spilling! 🙂

  3. Denise Prevost says:

    Sounds good, do you eat that cold? Could it be warmed up, like a warm breakfast? Thanks

  4. I’m a big texture person so new recipes that sit are hard. Is this like an oatmeal texture with crunch? Can you eat it cold or maybe warmed a little? Hoping the answer is yes?

  5. I do overnight oats all the time. I do use brown sugar, but not much. I just soak mine in water overnight. The next morning I nuke them for 1 minute. Then I add the brown sugar, 1 T chopped walnuts, a dash of skim milk (about 1/4 C) and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Do you not heat yours at all? The idea of cold oatmeal sounds really gross to me.

  6. I just tried this recipe as my first attempt ever at overnight oats, and now I am kicking myself for having not tried this before! They were delicious! I did swap out the almonds for walnuts because they were too hard to find but I still loved it! Thanks so much!

  7. I just plugged these ingredients into MyFitness Pal’s recipe box and it calculated that the calories were 517, not 322? Can you tell me how you calculated the calories for this? I just want to make sure I’m logging the correct amount of calories.

  8. just tried your raspberry overnight oats and love them. I have another jar in refrigerator. In the comments someone posted over 500 calories? Please tell me it is still only 300+ calories. Even that seems high. I have been on a pumpkin kick and love those overnight oats for only 254 calories. I wll be trying blueberry next.. And to answer some of the other question, I find cold gross so I put them in the microwave to warm them a bit. They are delicious! Thanks for all these recipes Tammy.

  9. When you enter it into MFP make sure you use the right kind of coconut milk. If you use the canned coconut milk then it is 500+ but if you use the coconut milk that comes in a carton then it is 300+.

  10. Can you use skim milk instead of the coconut milk and it still turn out?

  11. I don’t have any mason jars, can I use something else?

  12. can I use steel cut oats?

  13. My favourite oats in a jar recipe is similar. I add raspberries, blueberries, tbl spoon of coconut and chia seeds, tsp brown sugar, tbl spoon of Greek yogurt and cover with coconut water. It’s delicious.

  14. Hi! Do you use unsweetened coconut milk? Sounds delicious!

  15. When I enter this recipe into my fitness pal the calories always come out over 400. Usually almost 500. How are you getting the calories so low on yours?

    This is a great tutorial! I love oatmeal, and I haven’t made overnight oatmeal in a long time….until I came across your pin! I just finished off a blueberry vanilla jar I made with unsweetened almond milk and walnuts, and I have forgotten how much I love these! In fact, I am going to bust out the pint jars and get them ready to start whipping this up more often! Thank you for posting a very simple “How To” recipe that can be modified so easily!

    P.S. I never thought of adding chia seeds, but I threw some in the one I just ate and so glad I did! Doesn’t affect the flavor, but bumps the nutritional value!!!
