Coffee Chocolate Overnight Oats (Vegan)

Coffee Chocolate Overnight Oats.  I have another new overnight oats recipe for you!  This time it’s coffee chocolate vegan overnight oats.

We just moved into my inlaw’s house for the next 10 weeks as we begin our kitchen renovation.  I wanted to use my coffee extract in this recipe, but I realized I forgot to pack that and bring it over here.

So I ended up using a little strong brewed coffee to make these Coffee Chocolate Overnight Oats.  I will write the recipe for both if you prefer to use the coffee extract.  🙂


Coffee Chocolate Overnight Oats - My Whole Food Life


If you haven’t tried overnight oats yet, you need to!  They are super easy and so good.  You can make 5 at a time for easy breakfasts all week.

Overnight oats require no cooking and they travel well too.  My husband takes a jar into the office.  My fave is still the chocolate almond butter overnight oats, but these are pretty darn good too.  Especially if you like all things coffee flavored. 🙂

If you are a fan of coffee flavored treats, you may also like my 3 ingredient coffee popsicles and my chocolate coffee oatmeal bites.

Recipe Notes

If you use the coffee extract, make sure you up the amount of milk to 1/2 cup.

If you like a more textured oatmeal, use the steel cut oats. If you like a smoother oatmeal, use the rolled oats. These can be eaten cold or warned up. Enjoy!

  1. i love these recipes, but not sure I want to eat cold oatmeal. Can you include "heat and eat" instructions, please? Thanks!
    1. To heat, use a microwave for 1 minute. Or if you don't use a microwave, just heat in a sauce pan on medium heat for a few minutes.
  2. Oh. My. Gosh. This is my third day after discovering your blog. And. I am in love. These overnight oats. Totally doable and look delicious and at least mostly delicious!
  3. Another great recipe! I just bought your book on Amazon today and can't wait to get it! Unfortunately, it's temporarily out of stock so I hope I get it soon. Thanks, too, for all the recipes on your website!
    1. Thank you Kayla! Thanks for buying the book. They ordered a second printing for the end for March. If you don't want to wait that long, Barnes and Noble has it in stock on their website.
  4. Omg, can't wait to try this one! I've been Eating your German chocolate overnight oats since you posted…love it!! I may have to alternate days with this one;))
  5. Can't wait to try this! Quick question: Does it matter if you use the quick-cook variety of oatmeal vs. traditional? I have quick cooking steel cut oats in my cupboard and want to make sure they will work! TIA!
    1. I have never used quick cooking steel cut oats, but I am guessing they may get too mushy. I would use rolled oats or regular steel cut oats.
  6. My husband makes oatmeal for me every morning. He's now out of town for 10 days. I'm on day 3 and my body is in mutiny. Just made 5 days of this. Thanks!
    1. It sounds weird, but it isn't for me. I use steel cut oats and it reminds me of cereal. You can always heat it up if you prefer.
  7. Can't wait to try these! Can I use instant coffee grounds? If so, about how much would you think? Thanks so much.
  8. Hi - I see that this post is a few months old, but I wondered if you could do the same with buckwheat groats? Instead of the steel cut oats? thanks
  9. This sounds great! I notice that the picture shows chocolate chips sprinkled on top, but you don't list that as part of the directions--was that just for the picture, or do you actually add a few chips to yours when you eat it? Either way, I can't wait to try this!
    1. I just added them to the photo, but you can most certainly throw in a few when you add all the other ingredients. Maybe add 1 tablespoon? :)
