For the Overnight Oats:

  • ½ cup (120 ml) espresso coffee See Note 1
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) milk - I use almond or oat See Note 2
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup See Note 3
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) Greek yoghurt
  • 1 cup (80 g) old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds See Note 3

Toppings (optional):

  • Greek yoghurt
  • cocoa powder - a dusting


  • Make your coffee - I used an espresso coffee machine and made two shots of coffee, running for ¼ cup (60 ml) each shot. Set the coffee aside to cool for a few minutes.
  • In a medium-size bowl, add the coffee, maple syrup, milk and yoghurt and whisk until well combined.
  • Add the oats and chia seeds and stir to combine.
  • Cover the bowl with clingwrap, or divide the mixture into two glasses or mason jars and cover. Refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight.
  • Serve with toppings of your choice and additional milk if the mixture is too thick.


  1. Coffee: I used an espresso coffee machine and used two shots of coffee, running each for ¼ cup (60 ml). You can also use a filter, plunger or Moka pot.
  2. Milk: use milk of your choice. I use almond or oat milk. Add more milk when serving if you prefer a thinner texture.
  3. Tablespoon: we use a standard Australian tablespoon which is 20 ml (4 teaspoons).
  4. Toppings: the toppings are optional (and are not included in the nutritional information). Use toppings of your liking - see suggestions above.
