Vanilla Matcha Overnight Oats

May 20, 2015

Matcha is all craze at the moment. Clearly I fell for it and ordered Matcha powder online so I can try to make fancy lattes and drink it for some more superfood powers (like I need another superfood in my pantry). If you haven’t had Matcha before it’s a superfood green tea that comes in a powder form. It typically comes from Japan and is an enhanced/stronger green tea filled with super-antioxidants. It does have caffeine which I typically try to stay away from but a serving of Matcha is equal to half a cup of coffee (I can definitely handle that).

Now the taste of Matcha is not something everyone loves. It tastes very, well, green. When I drink it straight with water I try to add some almond milk and cinnamon so make it a little weaker as the green taste can be a little much for me at times.



Naturally I wanted to make Overnight Oats using Matcha (are you surprised?) So I added 1 teaspoon (that’s all you need a day) to my Overnight Oats prep last night. When I tasted it, it was most definitely a different taste for my oats but if you love Matcha and enjoy the taste of it, you will love these Matcha Overnight Oats.

  1. It looks yummy! Thanks for sharing this recipe for a unique and healthy breakfast…
    Like you, I love matcha and can’t wait to try your recipe 🙂

  2. I have made these overnight oats 3x’s in the past 2 weeks! They are quick, healthy and tasty…but, for me, in order for them to be TASTY, I need to add a banana. Once I add that, they are OUTSTANDING! Thanks for a quick go-to breakfast or mid-day treat. 🙂

  3. Made this last night, and had it this morning. It was DELICIOUS! The best overnight oatmeal recipe I’ve had so far. I used a full cup of the milk (plant-based vanilla flavored), and I didn’t add any extra vanilla extract. I almost didn’t add the cinnamon, but I’m so glad I did. It was a great compliment to the whole dish.
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. I’ve made this a couple times. I put bananas in one then blueberries in the other one. Both very good 👍
