This Masala Chai-Spiced Overnight Oatmeal tastes just like a creamy bowl of authentic Indian chai latte!

It can also be served warm or cold – delicious both ways! Naturally gluten-free, and can easily be made dairy-free and vegetarian too!

If you’ve never had overnight oatmeal before, they’re arguably the easiest method to make oatmeal! After all, it’s a no-cook, set-it-and-forget-it approach. Instead of cooking oatmeal by heating it up in the microwave or using the stovetop, you pour some milk into a jar of raw oats and let it soak overnight. Typically, the oats will have absorbed the liquid within 3 hours (though preferably overnight), at which point the oats are softened and ready to be eaten!

Ingredients to Make Indian Masala Chai-Spiced Overnight Oats

  • 1/3 cup black tea
  • pinch of fine sea salt
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp ground flax seed or chia seed, optional
  • 2/3 cup milk of choice
  • 1-2 tbsp maple syrup
  • Toppings: chopped apples, pecans, walnuts
