Matcha overnight oats are a creamy, filling, and nutritious breakfast packed with protein and fiber. Made with just 8 ingredients and ready in less than 5 minutes!
I’m not exactly a morning person, so any breakfast that requires no cooking and almost no prep time is a win in my book! Bonus points if it’s a healthy breakfast too.
Matcha overnight oats satisfy all of my breakfast needs. They’re super easy with just 5 minutes of prep time, filling and nutritious, oh and they taste amazing!
It’s a thick and creamy oatmeal with a matcha, banana, and almond butter flavor. Prep it the night before, refrigerate, then add some fresh fruit in the morning and you’re ready to go.
What makes matcha oats healthy?
For starters, this easy breakfast in a jar has a whopping 16g of protein and 16g of fiber, making it a super filling way to start your day.
It also has two of my favorite superfoods: chia seeds and matcha!
I add chia seeds to just about everything, from smoothies to desserts. They have a very subtle, bland flavor which means you won’t even taste that they are there.
If you aren’t already familiar with chia seeds, they are tiny little black seeds known for being exceptionally high in omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and protein.
Matcha is another amazing “superfood” and can be thought of basically as a concentrated green tea. It has many of the same health benefits found in green tea, only stronger.
My favorite part about matcha is that it provides a long lasting energy boost – perfect for that early morning fog.

How To Make
Matcha Overnight Oats
Using a potato masher or fork, mash half of a banana in a large bowl until soft and creamy.
Add the oats, almond milk, chia seeds, almond butter, matcha, agave, and vanilla to the bowl with the mashed banana. Mix together until thouroughly combined.
Once mixed, cover the matcha overnight oats and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (or overnight). The chia seeds and oats will absorb the liquid leaving you with a thick and creamy jar of deliciousness!
When ready to eat, add fresh fruit or other toppings and enjoy.
There’s so many delicious toppings you can try on this recipe to really make it your own.
Fresh berries are my favorite, but mango, kiwi, or other tropical fruits go great on overnight oats as well. Granola is another excellent topping choice if you want to add a bit of crunch and texture!
