Chai Spiced Chia Overnight Oats are creamy overnight oats with almond milk, chia seeds, and plenty of warm chai spice flavor! They’re dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan and are the perfect grab-n-go breakfast!
And just like that, the holidays are over! Can you tell I’m happy about it? I am….I really am. 🙂
The holidays were very nice — don’t get me wrong. I’m just so happy to be able to get back into my regular routine again, especially on the eating front. While I didn’t go on a major cookie binge for the whole month of December like I normally do, I had more than my share of sweets, party food…you name it.
After seeing both of my overnight oat recipes in the Top 10 Recipes of 2015, I knew I had to start this year off with these Chai Spiced Overnight Oats.
I know how much I love overnight oats, and I’m so happy that you love them just as much!
Why you’ll love this overnight oats recipe:
- it’s healthy and satisfying
- the oats have a luscious, creamy texture
- overnight oats are extremely customizable for almost diet
- you can whip them up in about 5 minutes flat
- it’s the perfect grab-n-go breakfast!
It’s easy to tell why they’re such a hit, isn’t it?
Chai Spiced Overnight Oats
I’ll admit, these sound like they’re too good to be true. For a non-morning person like me, a breakfast like this is the perfect thing. I love waking up knowing that a healthy breakfast is ready for me and all I have to do is make my coffee.
For these oats, just mix together your oats, chia seeds, spices, and brown sugar, and add your Almond Breeze Almondmilk. I’m not lactose intolerant, but I love the creaminess of the almond milk and the hint of almond flavor. It’s a must in these overnight oats!
Once everything is combined, cover the oats with plastic wrap, refrigerate overnight, and you’ll wake up to a delicious, healthy breakfast that’s going to stick with you all morning long.
The warm chai spice flavor will give you a nice, cozy feeling that you need on a cold winter morning. No, the oats aren’t warm themselves, but that’s no matter, especially when you’re probably enjoying it with a nice, hot cup of coffee or tea.
These Chai Overnight Oats are the perfect way to get your eating back on track after those crazy holidays without sacrificing flavor or feeling deprived.
There’s absolutely none of that here — only smiling, happy faces with a no-finger-lifting, delicious breakfast. 🙂

Happy New Year, Marcie! I’m happy that the holidays are over so that I can get back on track with my eating habits. I ate WAY to many sweets last month! These overnight oats sound like the perfect breakfast to get me going. I love the chai flavor and chia seeds in here! Sounds so healthy and flavorful!
Happy New Year, Gayle! I’m eliminating sweets right now (except for chocolate). 🙂 Thanks, and hope you’re having a great week!
Oh my gosh, chai-spiced oatmeal?? You are speaking my love language right now, Marcie! These overnight oats have my name written all over them!
Chai spice is wonderful in oatmeal! I had no idea. 🙂
Happy New Year, Marcie!! I’m happy for the holidays to be over as well, plus I always love the start of a shiny new year! I am all for having breakfast ready for me in the morning and these overnight oats look delish!! The chia spice in here just sounds seriously scrumptious and like breakfast heaven! Pinned! Cheers, my dear! <3
I’m the laziest when it comes to breakfast, so these are so great for me! Thanks for the pin, Cheyanne!
What a delicious breakfast to wake up to! I love this Marcie, especially all the spices in here!
Thank you, Manali! 🙂
Oh these look so tasty. And I love almond milk. I wouldn’t be surprised if this made your top ten by the end of the year!! 🙂 Happy New Year Marcie!!
Happy New Year, Renee, and thanks! 🙂
Almond milk is the best! So creamy and just like you said, that awesome hint of almond flavor- plus it’s lower calorie and has a higher calcium value than most normal milk 🙂 Delicious!
Almond milk is the best! Thanks, Medha!
What a delicious way to ring in the new year! I’m definitely going to make these as an easy breakfast this month 🙂
Thanks, Rachel! I loved waking up to these. 🙂
Happy New Year Marcie! I’m glad the holidays are finally over, because I had way too many sweets! Love this healthy breakfast idea! Pinned!
Happy New Year, Mira, and thanks for the pin!
Oooh I loooove chai flavored things, so I am all over these oats! I haven’t made overnight oats in forever but I really need to start again because they’re so easy!! Yum!
Thanks, Jess! The chai flavor was perfect in these!
What a great breakfast idea – so tasty and healthy! And the fact that it’s overnight oats makes it even better – it’s exciting to have something so delicious waiting to be eaten in the morning for breakfast!
Thank you, Melanie! 🙂
I can definitely relate with being happy that the holidays are over and getting back into a routine. These overnight oats look like a perfect way to start too! Love that you made a chai spiced version, it sounds delicious!
Marcie, I love overnight oats!!! so many great recipes and flavors!! love the chai-spiced with chia!!!
Happy New Year, Marcie! This is such a great way to get back on track after the holidays! I love overnight oats and this chai spiced version looks so delicious!! Yay, so glad you found the plate too! 🙂
Happy New Year, Kelly! And I got right on Etsy after you told me and found a plate easily…thanks for the tip!
Oh yum! What a great way to start the day! I am actually really glad the holidays are over too. We were back and forth from our house to home SO MUCH it was exhausting!
It is exhausting traveling. We had the opposite and had people over so much it was like we had a revolving front door. lol Thanks, Annie!
Happy New Year dear!Wishing you a lovely and healthy 2016!!!
My mom is a big fan of oats and she will make it and eat in any form. I will be sending this recipe over to her. I love the almond milk in it.
I agree, although it’s a bit harder to wake up the past few days, it’s nice to get back to our routine. A bit of time for ourselves too. The thing about holidays for me is more the eating out part, which I do enjoy but it does get too much. Home food is always so much more healthier and we know what is in it too.
Btw, love your weekly meal ideas and have been pinning a bunch to my boards.
Hugs my friend.
Happy New Year to you too, Ash! Thank you for sharing the recipe with your mother, too. 🙂 I’m glad to be back in the routine — yes the eating out and parties, etc. are fun but they catch up to you! There’s nothing like a healthy, home cooked meal. I’m glad you’re enjoying the meal plan and thank you for the pins! xx
Yay for overnight oats!! I will admit that I am so happy to be back in a normal routine again too!
I am obsessed with chai everything still – this flavor sounds awesome!
I’m pretty late getting on the chai bandwagon — I had a chai tea latte years ago and did not like it, so it took me a while to revisit chai. 🙂 I’m glad I finally did — chai spice flavor is delicious!
I’m glad you’re on board, Summer — thanks!
Thank you, Bethany! It really is delicious!
Yes — so simple and so good! Thanks, Dannii!
I actually have yet to try an overnight oats recipe! I am going through a big baked oatmeal phase right now though, so maybe overnight oats are next! Lol. These look so creamy!
I totally fluctuate between baked oatmeal and overnight oats, but these are definitely easier! Thanks, Ashley!
I am getting up right now off the couch and making this!! I HAVE to make overnight oats happen this year. Off I go!
Yes, do it! I know you’ll love them! 🙂
I just wanted to come back and say I LOVED this Marcie! I made it last week and enjoyed it for breakfast for two days. I did add some coconut milk (I have a problem) and it was delicious.
You’re so sweet — thank you for letting me know! I’m so glad you liked it and I don’t blame you for using coconut milk one bit! Haha. I so appreciate the feedback, friend. ?
One of my goals this year is to eat a real breakfast … not just coffee and toast! This just might be the motivation I need to eat oatmeal for breakfast! The chai spice sounds delish!
Thanks, Jamie! I can’t get enough of these. 🙂
My hubby has been asking for overnight oats! I need to give this a try!
I hope you do, Nancy! 🙂
This does look real creamy! I need to try some overnight oatmeal – Happy New Year!
Thanks, Deb, and Happy New Year to you, too!
I’m happy the holidays are over, too…..so much less stress! I’m loving these oats, Marcie. The flavors sound phenomenal!
Thank you, Cathy!
Great recipe combination of flavors. The process couldn’t be more simple but one major element is not addressed in the recipe or within any comments listed. What about heating this dish up? Cold oatmeal doesn’t sound like something I would be interested in on an already cold morning. Is everyone eating cold oatmeal or is this elephant in the room addressed somewhere I’m not seeing?
Hi Josh! Overnight oats are typically eaten cold. You can microwave them for a bit to take the edge off, or you might just be like me and actually like them cold! This is coming from someone that loves a warm bowl of oatmeal, too. ?
I was shocked I didn’t go crazy on cookies this year, but I just rolled with it! haha Thanks, Lindsey!
I am sad the holidays are over, but I have enjoyed eating healthier :). This looks so creamy and yummy!
Thank you, Laura!
I’ve never made overnight oatmeal before. Is it silly to ask if this needs heated up the next morning, or is it eaten cold?
It’s not a silly question at all, Terria! Overnight oats are eaten cold, which did sound strange to me before I’d tried them. I have heated them up briefly to see if I liked it, but I actually prefer them cold. ?
I’m so glad to hear that you loved the overnight oats, and Jamaican allspice sounds like it would be a great substitution! Thank you so much for the feedback, Trish! 🙂
Thank you so much, Alaina! 🙂
Is there an actual recipe in here somewhere? I have scrolled (painfully slowly due to all the large photos) to try and find some measurements and list of ingredients, but alas I have been thwarted. Can you post the recipe in the comments?
Hi, Annie…the recipe is at the bottom of the post.
Thank you! And thanks for your quick reply. I was getting frustrated trying to find it. Can’t wait to try the recipes.
I’m sorry, Annie — I know the photos can really slow things down, especially on mobile devices. I hope you enjoy the recipe!
These sound delicious, I’ve just started getting into overnight oats and this will be a nice change. The jars you use are so cute as well, where could I find them at?
Thank you, Farah! I got these jars on Amazon in a small set of 4 — the brand is Weck. ?
HI, I just wanted to thank you for the recipe and let you know it was bay far the best overnight oats style recipe I have tried. what a treat!
I’m so happy you enjoyed them, Marika, and I really appreciate the feedback! Thank you! ?
I just recently came across this recipe. I regularly make overnight oats and I love Chai. It has been a little cooler here these past few weeks looking forward to this tasty treat in the morning. I did a taste test as I was transferring the mixture into individual mason jars yummy. Thank you for sharing and this is pinned.
I’m glad you’re happy with the flavor Lynda and thanks so much for taking the time to give me your feedback!
Could you divide the mixture into jars and chill that way? Does the mixture swell very much? Thank you for this recipe btw 🙂
Hello! I always chill the mixture then divide into jars. I hope you enjoy them!
I really like the idea, but i would not really call it healthy after adding 3 table spoons of sugar..
It looks so delicious..
A perfect healthy and tasty breakfast it is
Thank you very much!
How long can this stay in the refrigerator ? I am the only one who eats oats in my house. This would make 4 servings for me. Thanks. Sue
Hi Sue! These easily keep 5 days — I hope you enjoy them!
The recipe used to specify the amounts of each spice (rather than redirecting to another page to create a batch of the spice mix). Can you provide the amounts of each spice for the oats?
Hi Janine. I’m sorry about that, but since I created a recipe for the chai spice it made more sense to redirect it there. I would suggest making the small batch of chai spice as the recipe states as it keeps for up to 3 months, or look at that recipe to figure out the proportions of each spice for the oats.
This was SOOOOOO yummy!!! It’s a family favorite now – thanks for sharing!
Thanks for the feedback — I appreciate it! 🙂
