Brown Sugar And Cinnamon Overnight Oats are a quick and easy breakfast recipe that everyone will enjoy. Fill mason jars with oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, maple syrup, almond milk, chopped pecans and you’ll have a delicious breakfast ready to go on any busy morning.

Mornings in our house can get a little crazy before everyone heads out the door to start the day. Most mornings we all grab something sugary and unhealthy because we are always running behind. I decided it was time to simplify our crazy morning rush, and have overnight oatmeal ready to pull out of the fridge and eat on the go. If you’ve been searching for healthy breakfast recipes, Brown Sugar And Cinnamon Overnight Oats, and Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal are perfect to add to your breakfast recipes.

Ingredients needed for overnight oats

  • Rolled Oats: Rolled oats are best for overnight oats. The increased texture results in a less mushy oatmeal compared to other oats.
  • Vanilla: I prefer to use pure vanilla in my recipes, but vanilla extract will work.
  • Almond Milk: Adds a great flavor to this recipe. Almond milk can be substituted for any milk you prefer.
  • Cinnamon: Adds great flavor to these oats.
  • Brown Sugar: I use brown sugar because I prefer the flavor.
  • Salt: Add a pinch of salt.
  • Maple Syrup: I prefer to use pure maple syrup. Honey or agave nectar can also be used.
  • Pecans: Lightly chop pecans and sprinkle on top of oats just before eating.

How to make overnight oats

  • Start by adding 1/2 cup oats and 1/2 cup almond milk to four individual 8oz. mason jars. Stir ingredients well to combine.
  • In a small bowl add vanilla, cinnamon, brown sugar, salt, maple syrup, and stir ingredients well.
  • Pour 1/4 of the brown sugar mixture into each of the jars and stir to combine.
  • Cover and place mason jars into the fridge for at least 6 hours, or overnight.
  • Remove from the fridge and serve with chopped pecans, additional brown sugar and maple syrup if desired. Enjoy!

Can you warm up overnight oats?

If you find that you don’t enjoy the oats cold, you can always let it prepare in the fridge overnight, then heat it up in the microwave in the morning. Simply microwave on high for 30 seconds, remove and stir, and microwave for an additional 30 seconds.

Substitutions for brown sugar and cinnamon overnight oats

  • Gluten Free: To make this recipe gluten free, substitute regular oats for gluten free oats.
  • Nut Allergy: If you have a nut allergy, substitute the almond milk for soy or regular milk and leave out the pecans.
  • Healthier Sugar Option: Replace brown sugar with coconut sugar for a healthier option.

How to store overnight oats

I like to make a couple batches of overnight oats and keep them in the fridge. They are an easy breakfast to pull out of the fridge and eat on the run when you need something hearty in the morning. Overnight oats can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Overnight oats are definitely best when eaten on day 2 or 3.
