Earl Grey Overnight Oats

Earl Grey Overnight Oats
Our Raw Heritage Oats are truly special, as they've never undergone harsh steam treatment (skipping this step preserves their natural oils and flavors). However, a word to the wise: while our oats are delicious, consuming them raw isn't recommended. Fear not! Simply toasting the oats does the trick to make them safe to eat - and enhances their natural nutty flavor. Lukas Volger, our good friend and talented author, has graciously shared his delightful twist on overnight oats. Simplicity at its finest, enjoy this easy way to savor our exceptional oats. Grab a bag of Fresh Rolled Oats and let's elevate breakfast!

What You'll Need

2 Earl Grey tea bags

2 cups just-boiled water

1-1/4 cups (150g) Fresh Rolled Oats

1 to 2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey, to taste

Zest of 1 orange

1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

3 tablespoons chia seeds

1/2 cup (120g) plain yogurt, any kind

Toppings of choice: fresh fruit, jam or marmalade, dollops of yogurt, toasted nuts or seeds, a drizzle of extra honey, maple syrup, or good olive oil


  1. In a 2-cup (or larger) capacity heat-safe measuring glass, combine the tea bags and water, and allow to steep for 8 to 10 minutes, until strongly brewed. Pick out the tea bags and squeeze out the liquid.

  2. Meanwhile, set a dry skillet over medium-low heat and add the oats. Gently toast them until beautifully fragrant and darkened a shade, 8 to 10 minutes, stirring or swirling the pan often.

  3. Transfer the toasted oats to a mixing bowl and pour the tea over them. Stir in the maple syrup, orange zest, and salt, and let stand for 10 to 15 minutes to cool slightly. Then stir in the chia seeds and yogurt. Divide between three jars and once cool, cover, and move to the fridge to set for at least 6 hours or ideally overnight.

  4. Serve cold or at room temperature, topped as you please

Recipe notes: Our Fresh Rolled Oats cannot be consumed raw. An easy way around this is to gently but thoroughly toasted first before consuming. You can use coconut milk in place of the yogurt to change up the flavor. Omit the tea for a simple, orange-kissed version of overnight oats.

Yield 3 servings | Prep & cook time is about 25 minutes, not including overnight rest.
