I have a new recipe for you.  Cinnamon roll overnight oats.  Have you made overnight oats yet?  They are also often referred to as oats in a jar.  Basically, you just throw everything in a jar and refrigerate overnight.  What you end up with is a delicious oatmeal in the morning that requires no cooking!  I have been eating overnight oats for months now.  They are also very popular on my blog.  My favorite overnight oats recipe so far has been the Almond Butter Overnight Oats, but this cinnamon roll overnight oats recipe may be a close second.  It’s like the taste of a cinnamon roll in your morning oatmeal.

The easiest breakfast you will ever make!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a food processor or blender, grind up the cashews until they are smooth.
  • Combine all the ingredients, including the cashews, in a jar and mix well.
  • Cover jar and set it in the fridge for the night.

You can eat the oatmeal cold, or heat it up right before eating. I eat mine cold. I make 5 at a time for easy breakfasts all week. If you use steel cut oats, they will still have a crunch. If you use rolled oats, they will be much softer.

This recipe calls for a lot of cinnamon because I love it. If you don't like as much of a cinnamon flavor, you can use less.

  1. I love over night oatmeal but this is my first attempt at something like this, do I drain the liquid from the cashews before I grind them up?

    1. I soak them in water for at least 4 hours to soften them. Before using I drain the water and then grind up the cashews. It makes them extra creamy. If you skipped that part, it would still be good, but less creamy.

    1. I eat mine before I go workout. What did you use as the milk? I use unsweetened milk and that cuts the calories a lot. I also don’t add the sweetener to mine anymore. I have learned to eat it without.

  2. I just had these for breakfast – AMAZING! Love all of your recipes, especially those using oatmeal in different ways. They certainly have helped me make eating breakfast easier and seriously tasty! BTW: big fan of the baked oatmeal too! Thanks!

    1. They really are key to making the “cream.” Do you eat yogurt? I think you could sub the cashews with vanilla or plain yogurt with success.

  3. I love cold oats but I have a random question.

    I’ve read that quinoa can be cooked for breakfast like oats. I’ve just ran out of oats but have a huge bag of quinoa. Do you think I can make cold quinoa the same way, or will this not work?

    Maybe I should just test it out. But with less quinoa to milk because it expands?

    1. I am not sure quinoa could be made in the same manner, but you can cook quinoa for a hot breakfast.

      1. Thanks for your reply. I did look up something to do with my leftover already cooked stuff. Another place mentioned you can mix a little milk and everything else with already cooked quinoa and itll be good for next day like cold oats. So looks like I still have to cook it first!
