Today we are making some Tiramisu oatmeal! I wanted to turn my favorite dessert into a healthier breakfast option, although I am not judging if you eat tiramisu for breakfast. My favorite ways to make oatmeal is either stovetop or overnight oats. This recipe can be made either way, and they both taste delicious! When I have time in the morning I like to make stovetop oats. I love how creamy they oatmeal is when you make it slowly in a pot. However, if I am busy in the morning, overnight oats are definitely my go to. It is so easy to grab out of the fridge to eat or pack for later.
For the cream part of the tiramisu oatmeal, I decided to use some Greek yogurt. You can also use vegan yogurt! I love the combo of oats and yogurt because the yogurt makes the oatmeal extra creamy. For this recipe I decided to assemble it in a mason jar. I started with a layer of the oats, then some yogurt and repeated that pattern until I go to the top of the jar. Then I finished with a dusting of cocoa powder.
Key ingredients for tiramisu oatmeal
- Obviously. I like to use old fashioned rolled oats over quick oats, but use whatever you prefer. I like to use the gluten free oats from Bob’s Red Mill.
- Greek yogurt
- I used regular Greek yogurt, however vegan yogurt will work as well! I also suggest using unsweetened version to keep this recipe no sugar added.\
- If you are not vegan I suggest using whole milk for the rich creamy texture. However your favorite plat milk or skim milk will work as well!
- A little bit of this goes a long way in this recipe! It is definitely the key component of any tiramisu.
- Cocoa powder
- As the finishing touch, dust the top of the oatmeal with some cocoa powder!
- 1 cup gluten free oats
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup milk of choice
- 2 tbsp coffee
- 1 cup Greek yogurt
- 1 tbsp monk fruit sweetener or sugar
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- In a sauce pan combine the oats, water, and milk. Cook for 5-8 minutes.
- Once the oats are done cooking, mix in the coffee and sweetener.
- Get a mason jar or bowl, and layer the bottom layer with the oats. Then top the oats with a layer of yogurt, Repeat the layering until the jar or bowl is filled.
- Finally dust the top with a layer of cocoa powder.
