Tropical Overnight Oats

Written by McDonald, T.  |  Date 19th of February 2024

I love overnight oats because they are so easy to make, yet so tasty!  You just put most of it in a jar with vegan milk and leave it overnight.  I guess that is why it's called overnight oats.  There are lots of versions and this is the tropical fruit one. Enjoy!


  • I tried adding the banana chips earlier and leaving it overnight, but they lost a lot of flavour.  It was the same for the papaya and pineapple pieces.
  • You can use any vegan milk, but the coconut milk alternative works best.  This is not the coconut milk you get in a can. 
  • Providing you are not intolerant to wheat or have a wheat allergy, you can add a tbsp of wheat bran.
  • Although oats are gluten free, they can be easily contaminated when packaged on factories.


  • Rolled oats x 40 g
  • Coconut milk alternative x 200 ml
  • Chia seeds x 1 tsp
  • Flaxseed x 1 tsp
  • A few banana chips 
  • Sultanas x 1 tbsp
  • Papaya and pineapple pieces x 1 tbsp
  • Desiccated coconut x 1.5 tbsp
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon  
  • 1/8 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 tsp of sugar
  • A sprinkle of vegan chocolate beans


  • A jar


  1. Tip the oats into the jar with the sultanas, desiccated coconut, cinnamon, sugar, and salt.   
  2. Poor the milk in and give it a good stir.  
  3. Place in a fridge overnight.  In the morning, the sultanas will be plump. 
  4. Pour the oats into a cereal bowl.  
  5. Add with the papaya and pineapple.  Break up the banana chips and add on top with the chocolate chips and serve.
