  • 1 cup oats 120 g
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds 15 g
  • 1 big pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tbsp stevia or truvia
  • 2 cups almond milk or hazelnut milk, or coconut

Hazelnut Cream

  • 1 cup whole roasted hazelnuts soaked in water overnight
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup nut milk
  • 1 tsp stevia or truvia
  • 1 big pinch salt


  • 2 tbsp ground hazelnuts
  • 2 tbsp roasted hazelnuts
  • cinnamon


  1. Mix all ingredients for the overnight oats and place them in an airtight container to soak overnight. 

  2. Make the hazelnut cream. Drain and rinse the hazelnuts and place in a high-speed mixer (I use my Vitamix) and blend with the rest of the ingredients until very smooth.  If too thick, add some more milk. The consistency should be a bit thinner than sour cream. Refrigerate overnight. 

  3. Stir your overnight oats and stir in 2 tbsp of hazelnut cream, if you want your oats a bit creamier. Divide between 2 bowls and decorate with roasted hazelnuts, cinnamon, ground hazelnuts, hazelnut cream and whatever else you want. Enjoy! 

Recipe Notes

  • Make a triple batch of overnight oats and eat them all through the week.
  • The hazelnut cream lasts in the fridge for at least a week. It will firm up with time, so stir in some water or nut milk so make smoother.

Tips for making overnight oats: 

  • Make sure to stick to a 2:1 ratio of liquid to oats when making vegan overnight oats to achieve a perfect spoonable, porridge-like consistency.
  • Add a big pinch of salt to your liquid oat mixture before refrigerating it. It will add so much flavor to your oats and will definitely not make them taste savory!
  • Old-fashioned rolled oats are the best choice when it comes to making overnight oats. While instant oats often dissolve into mush rolled oats give you that creamy, smooth texture with just the right amount of chew.
  • Give your vegan overnight oats one good final stir after taking them out of the fridge.
