It has been a while since I have posted an overnight oats recipe. So, why not come back with these “viral” Tiramisu Overnight Oats. “Viral” because this recipe is one that has been posted all over Instagram and Tik Tok. Obviously, this version here has a nice balance of protein, complex carbohydrates, a bit of sweetness and some fun. I mean – who does not like tiramisu for breakfast?!

And truly, we loved these!! They were delicious, easy to make, and take no time in the morning in terms of prep. They also kept me going all morning. Yum!

I thoroughly enjoyed taking these pictures. I have been playing a lot with the set up of the photos. I love how you see the cocoa powder oozing out of every one of these pictures and how sharpe the contrast came out 😍.

Why are these Tiramisu Overnight Oats Good for you?

Oats

I have not raved about oats in a while… so allow me to do this now. Oats are a whole grain, which is naturally gluten-free but oftentimes processed in areas where there are glutenous products. Oats have many health benefits but I want to touch on a few here specifically.

They are rich in magnesium, copper, iron, and zinc. They also contain a great amount of fiber (something we will touch further on in a second), and are rich in antioxidants. The antioxidants found in oats are mainly polyphenols. I want to point out a particular one here, which is called “avenanthramides”, and it almost exclusively found in oats. This antioxidant may increase the production of nitric acid in our bodies, which leads to a widenening of blood vessels, and thereby products our heart by allowing better blood flow.

The fiber found in oats is soluble and a powerful one at that. Oats contain beta-glucan, which forms a thick, gel-like consistency in our stomachs. This type of fiber does numerous things at once. It slows down digestion, and thereby blood glucose levels can rise more gradually and do not spike. It also provides an excellent feeding ground for our good gut bacteria. This type of fiber is also awesome for your cholesterol levels. It releases a type of bile, which reduces circulating levels of cholesterol in your blood. It may also protect your “bad” cholesterol levels from oxidation. All of the above is a powerful contributor to your heart health!

How can I adjust these Tiramisu Overnight Oats to my dietary requirements?

This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, vegan, and nut-free. If you have celiac disease, be sure to buy certified gluten-free oats. Due to the oats used, this recipe is, sadly, not paleo friendly.
