Vanilla Earl Grey Overnight Oats

Hello there!

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.

Vanilla Earl Grey Overnight Oats

Yield: 2
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Additional Time: 6 hours
Total Time: 6 hours 10 minutes

The flavour of a London Fog Tea Latte meets the creamy wholesome goodness of oatmeal in this Earl Grey overnight oats recipe. A simple and delicious treat made ahead of time with only six ingredients. Enjoy it for breakfast, dessert, or as a snack!

Ingredients

  • 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

Optional topping:

  • cookie or wafer (I used a stroopwafel)

Instructions

    1. 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.
    2. Then add the oats, milk, and vanilla extract into the bowl. Whisk together until well-combined.
    3. 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.
    4. 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.
    5. Finish by topping the overnight oats with a cookie or wafer if you like. Enjoy!

Notes

  • 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.
  • Nutritional information represents one serving and excludes the optional topping.
