My Favorite Chai Tea Spiced Overnight Oats
Overnight oats became an overnight sensation a few years back because there’s no cooking involved. Simply combine a few pantry ingredients, add milk the night before, then refrigerate overnight. I love that they’re a plant-based breakfast that’s also cheap to make!
The main ingredients are rolled oats, chia seeds, and your choice of milk. The rest is up to you!
For extra protein, add Greek yogurt or protein powder.
For fruity oats, mash a banana inside and top with fresh fruit.
If you’re feeling indulgent, add a dollop of peanut butter and chocolate chips
And if you’re a chai tea lover, you’re going to love this recipe for chai tea spiced overnight oats.
This oatmeal jar is reminiscent of a creamy chai latte. I used chai tea concentrate for sweetness, plus CINNAMON ROLL flavored protein powder that takes it next level.

Most of my recipes use pantry ingredients that are accessible to find and affordable (it’s part of my recipe pledge to you!) Buuut everyone’s got Amazon Prime these days, right? So in my opinion, this top-notch powder is pretty accessible too, and I promise it’s worth the $15 purchase.
This is Optimum Nutrition’s whey protein blend that also contains a little caffeine (morning boost anyone?) It has over 600 5-star reviews because its:
Not chalky or gritty and easy to mix
Deeelicious. The cinnamon bun flavor was MADE for oatmeal.
Affordable! At the time I’m writing this post, a 1.6-pound bag is under $15.
Chai tea + cinnamon bun flavored protein powder = Autumn in a mason jar. You don’t need any extra sweeteners for these oats, those two components have just the right amount.
Secret’s out: You’ve got everything you need to make my favorite overnight oats that I enjoy all year long. If you pick up the Cinnamon Bun protein powder and whip these up, let me know how you like it! Shoot me a DM on Instagram (and a pic!)
