What Are Overnight Oats?
If you haven’t heard of overnight oats before, then you are not alone! It’s a delicious trend made popular by its connivence and adaptability.
Ultimately, overnight oats are a breakfast recipe made by soaking oats in milk overnight or for at least a few hours. There are many flavours and additions like vanilla, yoghurt and chia seeds that you can add for more flavour and texture.
Overtime, the soaked oats become creamy and can be eaten straight from the fridge cold or warm heated up in the microwave.

How Long Are Overnight Oats Good For?
Overnight oats are good to eat for up to 5 days stored correctly in the fridge, making it a great breakfast prep for the whole working week.
Make sure to check the use by date of the ingredients you are using, especially the milk as depending on when it goes off, the amount of time the oats are good for could reduce.
So, if you’re wondering if you can eat overnight oats after 2 days, the answer is yes! But make sure the oats are still good, otherwise it will have to be thrown out.
Below are the few ingredients needed to make this recipe:
- Biscoff Spread & Biscoff Biscuits: The star ingredients! These overnight oats have a layer of Biscoff spread topped with crushed Biscoff biscuits.
- Oats: Use porridge oats / rolled oats (like the type you would use to make flapjacks).
- Chia Seeds: Like oats, chia seeds also absorb liquid and help turn the mixture into a creamy and thicker texture.
- Milk: I like to use full fat milk but feel free to use milk-alternatives. As Biscoff is vegan, using nut milks make this Biscoff overnight oats recipe suitable for people with vegan diets.
- Sugar (Or Honey): I prefer using light brown sugar as it adds a delicious caramel flavour, but you can use honey or any other type of sugar instead.
- Vanilla Extract (Optional): Adding vanilla extract is optional but does help enhance the overall flavour.
This Biscoff overnight oats recipe is without protein powder but feel free to add this if you want to boost the protein content.
Jars For Overnight Oats
I like using these sealable jars for my own overnight oats, especially when I’m taking it on the go with me the following day. It comes with its own spoon too, so everything I need is ready to go.
There are so many jars out there that you can use, whichever you choose. I recommend picking a container that’s light and airtight. Containers like mason jars or even old tableware and reused jam jars will work perfectly!
How To Make The Best Biscoff Overnight Oats
Below is a step-by-step guide on how to make the best Lotus Biscoff overnight oats. Full recipe instructions are on the recipe card:
Pour oats, chia seeds and sugar into your overnight oats container and mix together until evenly distributed.
Add vanilla extract and milk to the container and mix thoroughly.
In a small mixing bowl, melt the Biscoff spread in the microwave over a medium to high heat. This generally takes 15 to 20 seconds.
Pour the melted Biscoff spread on top of the oats and spread it until it covers the oats completely.
To do this, I like to tilt the container and let the Biscoff run into all areas, but you can also spread it with a knife. Just make sure you don’t mix it into the oats.
Optional: Instead of forming a Biscoff spread layer you can just mix the melted Biscoff into the overnight oat mixture. This is what I did in my video.
At this stage you can add the Biscoff biscuits (crushed and / or whole). However, the biscuits will soften overtime, so you can decorate the overnight oats just before serving instead.
Leave the overnight oats to chill in the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight for best results.
Ratios For The Perfect Texture
I like my overnight oats creamy and not thick and stodgy, so this recipe has 160ml of milk (2/3 cup) to create a texture that’s not super thick.
If you like runnier overnight oats, then you can simply add more milk before or after it’s ready. If you like thick oats, then I recommend increasing the oats or chia seeds to your personal preference.
Once you have your go-to ratio, then you can make the texture perfect for you every time. If you’re not using chia seeds, then you can reduce the ratio of oats to milk to 1:1.
How Long Do Overnight Oats Last?
Overnight oats last for up to 5 days in the fridge, make sure it’s sealed in an airtight container and is kept in the fridge.
Can Overnight Oats Be Eaten Warm?
Yes, if you prefer to eat your oats warm then you can heat it up in the microwave. Make sure to use a microwave safe container if you plan on eating it warm.
The Biscoff spread topping will melt when heated up in the microwave. I would add the Biscoff biscuits after the overnight oats have been heated up.
To reheat these overnight oats, simply warm on a medium heat for 20 to 30 seconds and give the mixture a thorough stir. Repeat this until the oats has reached your desired temperature, you may want to add more milk to loosen the texture.
My Top Tips
This recipe makes one portion, but you can quadruple / quintuple the recipe ingredients. Portion the oats into individual servings to make a big batch for the week, this helps to save time in the mornings.
If you like a smoother oats texture, then you can blend the oats before starting the recipe or blend the overnight oat mixture before placing it in the fridge.
Avoid using steel cut oats / coarse oats as it will need more time to absorb the liquid. I also avoid using instant oats as they can make the mixture really mushy.
Instead of adding a layer of melted Biscoff spread on top of the overnight oats, you can mix it into the mixture. This ensures Biscoff flavour in every spoonful.
If your oats don’t fill the container to the top or you are not using a rectangle shaped container. Then the Biscoff spread will pour into the oats as opposed to forming a layer on top.
Recipe Variations And Substitutions
There are so many flavour swaps and variations that you can make to overnight oats, I’ve listed a few of my favourites below:
Add Spices: Spices like cinnamon and nutmeg make great additions.
Change The Flavour: Instead of Biscoff spread, you can add peanut butter.
Add Fruits: Sliced bananas, berries, apples and even diced mangos will add a delicious touch.
Add Chocolate: If you have a sweet tooth, you can add white, milk or dark chocolate chips to the oats mixture.
