Overnight Oats with Coconut Milk are a rich and creamy, super decadent, meal prep worthy breakfast or anytime snack. Naturally sweetened with maple syrup and finished with bananas, enjoy this easy overnight oats recipe as a healthy treat throughout the week!



1 ½ cups old fashioned rolled oats

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 ½ cups coconut milk

½ cup almond milk

½ cup chopped almonds

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 tbsp maple syrup

⅓ cup shredded coconut flakes, chopped + more for topping

Bananas, for topping


Mix oats and milk: In a large mixing bowl, mix together oats, chia seeds, coconut milk, almond milk, almonds, vanilla extract, maple syrup and coconut flakes until well combined. 

Store, then serve: Either cover with plastic wrap or divide into 4-6 air tight containers and refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight. Mix together, and top with extra coconut shreds and bananas before serving.


Overnight oats will keep for up to 4 days. If the oat mixture thickens too much on days 3 and 4, add a splash of coconut milk to loosen.
