Vegan overnight oats are the number one way to start you day the stress-free way.

Most mornings are busy, so all you want to do is grab something and start munching. These preprepared plant-based jars of joy are the answer, my friends!

No cooking, no fussing. Breakfast has never been simpler.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, these dairy-free overnight oats are far from boring. With almost limitless flavor combinations, these little wonders may well become a favorite way to get your day started.

Coconut Chocolate Overnight Oats

If you’re a coconut lover, these oats are for you. I assume you’re a chocolate lover because I just can’t imagine not being one! (Yes, plant-based practitioners can eat certain cocoa-based products, in case you were wondering “Is chocolate vegan-friendly?“)

Anyway, put these two together and you get a delicious and healthy breakfast that’s so easy to make. Charlotte’s adorable blog is not all vegan (or vegetarian) so I definitely appreciate her delving into the world of vegan cooking and coming up with this yummy recipe.

The full recipe can be found here at Charlotte’s Lively Kitchen.


Raspberry Almond Dairy-Free Overnight Oats

No dairy overnight oats

First off, I have to tell you that pink overnight oats in a little mason jar is just the cutest thing to wake up to in the morning! Add to that the fact that they’re delicious and you’re all set for a great day.

Tanya gives great advice about how to combat raspberry tartness and substitutions for alternative plant milks if coconut isn’t your thing. Check out her Organize Yourself Skinny blog that’s full of great recipes and tips for living a healthy lifestyle.

Maple Pecan Overnight Oatmeal

Go Dairy Free is the website of the crazy popular book of the same name, so you know this is going to be good! First of all, the first step of the recipe is to make maple pecans! That’s all I needed to hear and I jumped into the kitchen.

These oats have a strong maple flavor and are so easy to put together. I prefer them heated up on cold mornings, but they can be eaten directly out of the fridge as well.

Head over to Go Dairy Free see Alisa’s delicious recipe. It’s easy to filter their recipe section to only see vegan recipes, so prepare to spend some time pinning recipes from this glorious site!


Vegan Overnight Oats Rhubarb Compote

Lauren’s done it again with another dish that’s ridiculously delicious and easy at the same time!

Her recipe is full of fruits and nuts, but the shining star is definitely the rhubarb compote at the bottom of the jar of oats that gives this breakfast dish its name. Think of it like a fruit on the bottom yogurt cup; every stir brings up more sweet goodness!

I think that my favorite part of this recipe is that now I can have gingerbread all year long!

Running on Real Food’s Deryn is my spirit animal. Her oaty bowl of goodness contains molasses, vanilla protein powder, ginger, and cinnamon. And to top it all off she recommends adding vegan whipped cream and chocolate or coca nibs on top! Perfection.

Blueberries and oats make a natural pairing for me, so I was delighted to find London’s recipe. She adds a cooked pecan crumble to the top that takes these oats to a completely different level of deliciousness.

Be sure to catch her note to sub out the honey with agave or maple syrup to keep in vegan. The full recipe can be found on her blog, Evolving Table.

These oats are so bright and fresh tasting, they make a lovely way to start your day. This recipe is ridiculously easy to put together and makes enough for a few days’ worth of breakfasts. Since it does call for a little lemon zest, I try to keep an organic lemon on hand for this recipe.
