Cinnamon Roll Overnight Oats

Print Friendly

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.

Cinnamon Roll Overnight Oats

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’ve been looking forward to trying one of your overnight oats recipe- and I think this is the one that’s going to make me finally do it! My question, what happens if I don’t soak the cashews? I can see myself forgetting, then not having enough time for them to soak and still get into the refrigerator.

    1. If you don’t soak the cashews, they will not get as soft and when you grind them it might be slightly gritty. I added the cashews to give the oats a creamy type taste. Almost like the filling on a cinnamon roll.

  2. I am so glad to see a new overnight oat recipe! I love them all and that is what I eat almost every morning. Can’t get enough of the banana nut overnight oats. Actually, they are all delicious and can’t wait to try this one! Thank you and keep making more recipes for these delicious oats!!

      1. I think what Ania means is what size is the cup measurement. In Australia it is a 250 ml size.
        p.s. love your site and recipes

  3. I prepped these last night and enjoyed it this morning. YUM! Every time I try a new overnight oats recipe, I get a new favorite. Thank you!

  4. Well, I didn’t have cashews, so I just made two of the Almond Butter Overnight Oats. Those are so delicious, I make them almost more than the Banana Nut overnight oats. Now, I think the almond butter ones are my favorite!! As soon as I get to the store I will get the cashew and give this one a try. Looking forward to the new recipe!! These are so great to have in the fridge for breakfast!! Can’t thank you enough for these recipes! They are my main breakfast anymore!!

  5. Oats in a jar, and overnight oats are 2 different things. You can make overnight oats in a bowl or anything. Oats in a jar are designed so you can scrape up the remainders of what’s left in the jar, e.g getting the lats remnants of nut butter from a nut butter jar- so you save the best for last.

  6. I bought the raw cashews and have them soaking. Can’t wait to try this new one! I see there isn’t any flax meal in this one, is that correct?

  7. Hi Melissa, do you soak the cashews in water or milk and how much liquid? Thanks :) can’t wait to try these ones!

  8. Made these last night and am eating them this morning. They are delicious, too! I just love these overnight oats and have almost every morning! If I don’t have them one morning, I feel like I didn’t have anything good to eat and miss them. I love how easy these are and how great tasting. Can’t thank you enough!!!

  9. I’m not a big fan of overnight oats (they taste great but I can’t get over the texture) but I LOVE all of your baked oatmeal recipes. I have tried them all and am looking for a new “flavor”. Can any of your overnight oats easily be baked instead? I’m afraid to attempt it without asking your opinion first. :)

    1. I’m not sure if they can. You can probably do some kind of baked variation though. You may need to slightly adjust the ingredients. Maybe less milk and something to help bind them? If you try, I would love to know how they come out! I bet the cinnamon roll one would be good baked with the cashew cream spread on top. Yummy!

    1. You can, but soaking the cashews first makes the cashew butter softer. Almost like a cream. I think it will still be good with cashew butter though.

      1. That’s good to know that when cashews are soaked, it becomes creamier. I’ll make my first batch with cashew butter and the second with soaked cashews. You’ll be the first to know how they both comes out (:

  10. I don’t have cashews, only cashew butter. Could I use cashew butter instead? And if so, how much would I use of the cashew butter in substitute for the 1/4 cup cashews? Thanks in advance!

    1. You can use cashew butter, but the taste will be slightly different since soaking the cashews makes them extra soft. Almost like a cream. If you were to use cashew butter, I would use 1 tablespoon.

  11. Hi, I have cashew butter instead of cashews and was wondering if I could replace that for the cashews. If so, how much would I sub in? Thanks!

  12. Hello! The recipe calls for gluten free rolled oats or rolled oats – is this the same as instant rolled oats or steel cut oats?

    1. Yes. Either rolled oats or steel cut oats will work. However, steel cut oats will still retain a slight crunch so if you like a smoother oatmeal, go with the rolled oats. Instant oats are different. They will probably get too mushy.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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!
