These dessert-inspired overnight oats are great on-the-go or enjoyed in the comfort of your own home.



  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup almond milk or other nondairy alternative
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 4 medjool dates, pitted and chopped into small pieces
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Optional: 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup plain or vanilla plant based yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  1. Shred approximately 2 large carrots using a food processor with a shredder attachment or a regular grater.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together oats, almond milk, shredded carrots, chopped dates, cinnamon, chia seeds and vanilla extract. Let sit 5 minutes.
  3. Whisk together yogurt and cinnamon. Spread a dollop of yogurt at the bottom of two glass jars (or whatever container you’ll be storing your oats in.)
  4. Divide mixture in half between two jars. Top with more yogurt and stir once (doesn’t need to be fully incorporated).
  5. Store in refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight. Enjoy!
