These tasty and tender overnight oats are flavoured by Earl Grey tea, soaked in almond milk, sweetened by honey, and enhanced with a splash of pure vanilla.
What’s Earl Grey Tea?
It’s a popular flavoured tea that has a black tea base combined with the oil from the rind of a bergamot orange, which tastes like a combination of an orange and lemon with a little bit of grapefruit and lime too.
It’s like a London Fog Tea Latte mixed with chilled oatmeal!
These no-bake oats are perfect to make the night before and serve for breakfast or as a snack or even as a healthier dessert.
I like to enjoy these overnight oats with a cookie or wafer for something a little extra special!
My go-to’s lately are either speculaas cookies (aka Dutch spiced windmill cookies) or stroopwafels, which are thin wafers with caramel syrup in the middle. You’ll see that I used half of a stroopwafel in the photos down below.
I hope you enjoy this recipe for Vanilla Earl Grey Overnight Oats.

- 1 Earl Grey tea bag
- 1 cup hot boiling water
- 1 tbsp pure honey
- 2 cups uncooked old fashioned rolled oats (or quick oats) *see first note
- ½ cup almond milk (or milk of your choice)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- cookie or wafer (I used a stroopwafel)
- In a medium bowl, steep the Earl Grey tea bag in the hot boiling water for 3-5 minutes (depending on how strong you like your tea). Discard the tea bag and stir in the honey until it completely dissolves.
- Then add the oats, milk, and vanilla extract into the bowl. Whisk together until well-combined.
- Carefully spoon into two (half pint) mason jars (or airtight containers). Seal the jars with lids and place in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours or overnight.
- After the oats are ready, open the jars then give the oats a stir and taste. Add additional milk if you prefer a thinner consistency and/or more honey for a sweeter flavour.
- Finish by topping the overnight oats with a cookie or wafer if you like. Enjoy!
- I used quick oats (aka instant oats). These oats produce a softer and creamier texture than old-fashioned rolled oats. If you prefer a chewier texture that holds together better (it’s also the usual overnight oats choice), go with old-fashioned rolled oats.
