Mocha Overnight Oats

February 25, 2014

First off, THM wants to say thank you for all of your wonderful birthday wishes! Yes, I consider my blog it’s own entity. No, I’m not ashamed of this. But fo realz you guys are awesome. I may or may not have cried.

Back to today’s recipe. We’re talking oats. I’m fairly certain the last time we talked oats I was complaining of sweltering weather and training for a half-marathon. Those days are loooooong gone, but fortunately the oatmeal is still kicking. I took a little hiatus from my morning oats after the copious amounts of granola I made sucked me in (for the record granola is now officially banned since I cannot control myself), but I’m back on the warm oatmeal train and I’m feeling gooooood.

mocha overnight oatsYou know what else makes me feel good? Coffee. My introduction to coffee was so cliche…Starbucks. A grande sugar-free hazelnut soy cafe misto to be exact. Otherwise known as, my life’s savings. But then I decided to become a psych major in my third year which entailed 14 psych courses in 2 years and the harder stuff was required. By harder I’m talking grande bold black. Don’t worry people, I only get high on life.

mocha overnight oats 2Deep into my coffee addiction I came across the anti-coffee camp and I had a freak out that I was single-handedly destroying my health. Naturally, my obsessive self took to tea and began building what might be considered the world’s largest tea collection (50+ teas). I love tea and I always will but I’ve recently discovered that I am actually a better person after coffee. I’m nicer, more patient, increasingly productive and just plain happier.

So just like my oats, coffee is back. I figured I may as well combine the two in this Mocha Overnight Oats recipe.

    I LOVED making my oats with coffee as the liquid but often used decaf so I could have full strength with it. Since starting work, my coffee consumption has gone CRAZY and as such, my tolerance is becoming redundant!

    Can I just give a Hail Mary (or a mazel tov) to your photography. Amazing.

    I go through breakfast phases. My current obsession is oatmeal smoothies!! Precisely Chocolate Oatmeal Smoothies! Oh I’m a fan. What I’m not a fan is coffee. It doesn’t wake me up, I can live without it and I’m totally fine with it. However, I know way too many people that can’t live without it. I still don’t get it, jum I guess I’ll stick to chocolate 😉

    Coffee. No question. Sometimes I want tea but it is no substitute in any way…I used to eat the exact same English muffin with peanut butter for breakfast every single morning for easily 7 years straight. Now I rotate a bit more between oatmeal varieties (hot, cold) and I change up the mix-ins but my breakfast must always contain peanut butter.

    I’m actually not the biggest fan of either tea or coffee, but I still like tea a lot better. I could use this recipe as inspiration for some sort of tea-based overnight oats 😀
    Overnight oats are my favorite, so I’m always in that phase, but I also go through yogurt bowl phases where I’ll have one every other day.

    MMM girl I love me some mocha. I’m definitely way more of a coffee person–my actual first coffee was the Java Chip from Starbucks–does that even count? It’s mostly just chocolate. Anyway, I only drink one cup of coffee per day but I’m trying to drink one cup of tea also since tea is good for you. Trying is the key word.

    Before I jump (somewhat) off topic, I will say I love my tea, but coffee wins hands down. I see nothing wrong with a small cup everyday!! I may work at Starbucks (and yes, totally cliche haha, in fact while in Portland exploring coffee shops I didn’t dare tell anyone where I worked. I surely would have been laughed at.) but I don’t drink that much coffee!! I limit myself because it’s easy to overdo it. I USUALLY keep it between 8-12 oz a day, but sometimes I have a little more. ALWAYS black coffee though. ANYWAY this recipe looks great, and your photos are even greater. Yeah, that was a terrible sentence but you get it.

    NOW I feel the need to share this because of the french press in your photos..I had the same one..and by had I mean I literally (10 minutes ago) JUST BROKE MINE!!! I went to make my coffee this morning and I hit the glass with another piece of glass and boom..shatter. Right as my water kettle started to steam…so I figured out how to get my coffee through a makeshift way…I’m sort of proud actually. ANd now I must buy a new press!

    I am a coffee person. I just don’t function properly decaf! Everytime I try to go off coffee I am just plain miserable. So I gave up on the whole thing and accepted that there is no life without the delicious comforting liquid!
    I go through crazy breakfast phases. My longest was oatmeal so far (approx. 7 month) then came Green Smoothies, Yoghurt Bowls, Banana Egg Bakes and now I am desperately deep stuck in a Smoothie phase for which I blame Amanda.
    This recipe sounds and looks very intriguing and I’ll definitely give it a try as soon as I can get away from the Smoothies!
    By the way I am so in love with your pretty pictures!

          I blame Amanda for my obsession with smoothies as well. I had been having oatmeal as breakfast for like 6 months, and the she came up with the Thick and Creamy Chocolate smoothie. They are rocking my mornings now. And afternoon snacks. And sometimes after dinner.

I’ve tried the tea thing and I just can’t replace my coffee! That said, these overnight oats look exactly like something I need in my life. I never thought to use coffee in overnight oats, but I love it!

    I’m definitely a tea person over coffee, but I think I could do these oats. I don’t coffee as in to drink, but I like things flavoured with coffee (read: coffee ice cream). So…yup. I could do this.
    And definitely on the breakfast phases. Lately, it’s been either protein pancakes or oatmeal with eggs. Now I just need to decide which one I’m going to have today….

    My day doesn’t begin truly until I have my coffee (with coconut milk, of course). Obviously mocha is one of the best flavors in the universe ever created ever, so undoubtedly these oats are amazing. I would probably add almond milk to this because I like my OOs a little creamier. And now that I look back at what I just typed, it looks like I’m sending you dirty comments about boobies. I’m not, I swear.

And yes for phases! There was a cereal phase, a Poptart phase, a can of Coke phase, and now an oatmeal phase. That last one has been spanning a couple of years, though 😆

Breakfasts during the work week are usually fruit #publicbanana, smoothies, or granola with yogurt. On weekends I get a little bit more elaborate and go with eggs, potatoes, toast and on a rare occasion french toast or pancakes. This past weekend was a rare occasion, and I had French toast on Saturday and Sunday.

    I love coffee, but it doesn’t really love me (unless it’s decaf) – it gives me a headache and leaves me feeling not my best. So I alternate between drinking decaf coffee and orange pekoe tea in the mornings with herbal tea throughout the rest of the day.

    I adore mocha flavoured foods/drinks though – this recipe looks amazing!

Davida, don’t throw so much amazingness at me at once, okay? 😉 I love overnight oats and I love coffee – duh, this is so perfect! Cannot wait to try, I have a feeling this will become a staple in my breakfast rotation!

    Would you believe that I have never made overnight oats? I think that every healthy living blogger out there besides me has haha. I eat oatmeal here and there but don’t really get the overall obsession with it! In any event, this looks pretty!

    Tea all the way! Coffee makes me a nut. I’m really sensitive to caffeine and when I drink coffee my body feels like it’s buzzing (not in a good way!) and I get a headache. Oh, and I get absolutely no energy from it… hence why I like tea!

      Alright lady, we gotta change this!! And make overnight oats with tea! I usually steep mine for at least 20 mins and it’s so awesome. Try it with Teavana’s creme brûlée, so yum!

    I WENT THROUGH AN ANTI-COFFEE PHASE. Surprisingly, during my senior year of college until nearly two years later. Then I was hanging out with this boy and would be up until like 2 every night (totally PG we would sit talking in our cars for hours after our friends left whatever we were doing) and started drinking iced coffee at work everyday. Mainly because my work used to have the best iced coffee. I also go through breakfast phases. Right now it’s in this weird yogurt-pumpkin muffin-oatmeal mixeroo stage.

    Oh, a secret – Target brand coffee (archer farms) is seriously the. best. coffee (outside of Hawaii, that is).

    This sounds ridiculously delicious! I’ve been caffeine free for two months now, so I won’t be trying this any time soon. But I love the idea! Maybe I’ll make it with my dandy tea. 🙂

    I used to be in the anti-coffee camp, and sometimes, I still find myself there. I just HATE the idea of being addicted to it! But oh how I love the taste!

    This sounds delicious. I would definite;y have to warm it up in the morning with the weather we’ve been having!

    While it wasn’t my FIRST introduction to coffee, I can say that my first trip to Starbucks (to get my teacher a coffee, mind you) was a day I will never forget…the first time I ever laid tastebuds on the infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte! Aforementioned teacher gave me money to get “a little something for myself”…what she didn’t realize was that she was basically to blame for the $3965826735 dollars spent on the raging sugar/caffeine addiction that was my college years! Eventually, I did a stent in rehab and thankfully I’ve been Star-take-my-bucks free for years now. Which is better since I can now spend that money on FOOD! 😉

    Have I ever gone through a breakfast phase? Ha! I go through everything in phases! I went through a HUGE tea phase for about a year…now, not so much. Please, tell me what I’m supposed to do with the like, 20 boxes I have in my pantry! PuhLEEEEEASE!

    Happy Belated Birthday, Davida, I hope you celebrated it with a great smile and wishing you a lovely year full of bliss and yummy foods! Just got back from my weeklong trip in Lima! I’ve been addicted to quinoa oatmeal lately – it was so yummy, plus gluten-free! I’m currently testing a savory overnight oats for another food blogger’s cookbook and I can’t wait to give it a try! I like my mocha frapp from Starbucks – yum for brewed coffee! Doni loves brewing cold coffee! I’m a tea person, Doni’s a coffee person, hehe!

    This looks delicious! I was wondering if you need to use fresh hot coffee or is it ok if the coffee has cooled down from earlier in the day?

    Had this for the first time today. I’m not really a coffee fan despite drinking it pretty much every morning. I’m more a fan of not crashing and dying on the drive to work. 🙂 So I was dubious going into this, and I admit the first few bites were classified as “ew.” It grew on me, though, but I wouldn’t necessarily say I like this. The banana definitely helped (not big on those either, to be honest). But if coffee’s something you like the taste of, these surely make a great breakfast! Thanks for the recipe! Always happy to try something different.

    I don’t have a coffee maker at home…only my Keurig in my office at work. Would this work to make the night before without the coffee and then add the coffee and microwave in the morning? Or does it really need that full 6 hours to seep up the coffee overnight?

      I would recommend the coffee to steep overnight as that’s the liquid that the oats absorb. Are you able to bring a to-go cup home???

        I probably could…maybe a few so I can make a few cups at once. 🙂 Just thought I’d ask. Thanks for the quick reply!

    Just wanted to know if the coffee has to be warm or cold for the mocha overnight oats.
