Cinnamon Roll Overnight Oats

Here’s the thing about me and oatmeal. I never liked it growing up, mostly because I thought it looked like a big bowl of hot mush. I could never get past the idea of Little Miss Muffett on her tuffett with a bowl of mush and before you know it oatmeal was inextricably linked to spiders in my mind and it became inedible.

Luckily I grew up a little, learned to kill my own spiders, and started making some really amazing oatmeal recipes. Ones that don’t taste like mush, but rather like dessert in a form that is entirely acceptable for breakfast. I’ll take a cinnamon roll any way I can get it – and that definitely goes for an oatmeal version. I love overnight oats because they only take a couple minutes to throw together before you go to bed, and they are ready to go when you’re running out the door in the morning. (If you’re anything like me and have trouble limiting the number of times you hit the snooze button, you could use a good no-fuss breakfast go-to.) And if you haven’t tried cold oats before, it’s about time you gave it a shot – starting with these cinnamon roll overnight oats!

Gosh Tiffany, only YOU can make overnight oats look this good! What a great flavor! I can’t wait to try these out 🙂 Pinned!

    Ha! Overnight Oats are hard!! Took me a million shots but finally got a few I liked!!! Thanks Chelsea! 🙂

I’m with you I never cared for oatmeal much growing up either, I think it was because it was mushy and blah looking. Glad I grew out of that because I’m loving these cinnamon roll overnight oats, cinnamon roll anything is a win in my book!

Are those adorable little cinnamon rolls included in the recipe? 🙂 I sill haven’t gotten over spiders, but I definitely love my oatmeal! What a fantastic flavor choice and those swirls of cinnamon are just awesome!

I love overnight oatmeal! Made this last night for today. Truly Amazing!! I only added 1 tbsp of the powered sugar to the cream cheese. It was perfect!
Thanks for the recipe!

When do u add the cinnamon

    Hi Kon – sorry about the confusion, the cinnamon goes in with the rest of the ingredients before chilling overnight – I’ve updated the recipe to make that more clear! 🙂

      This looks delicious! Would chilling it for more than 8 hours be bad??

        Nope! I’ve chilled mine up to 3 days and still loved it!

What are the nutritional facts on this? Calories? Fat? Carbs? Sugar?
I’m trying new breakfast meal preps and love this.

How long can you store these? Ex. Could I make 5 for my whole week on Sunday and eat them throughout the week? Or do you think 8 hours is the max time they should be refrigerated before eaten? Thanks!

    Hi Lisa, I’ve kept these up to 4 days in the refrigerator so I bet one more day couldn’t hurt! 🙂

      Thanks! 🙂

a must try!

I’m still not a huge fan of oatmeal and to make matters worst can’t stand cold food, sooooo silly question but have you ever warmed it up straight out the fridge??

Could it be warmed slightly before eating?

    I haven’t tried it warm myself, but if you do try heating it up, please let me know how it turns out! 🙂

Altered this to make an oatmeal raisin cookie type of oatmeal 🙂 I made it last night and I found it was too much cinnamon, so I made it again tonight for tomorrow morning, with less cinnamon and I added raisins and I used plain greek yogurt and added a bit of vanilla extract! 🙂 It’s an awesome idea I love this recipe!

love this recipe and idea!

Hey TIffany,

First of all, I have been eating these oats almost every single morning for the past two weeks! (I am afraid of spoiling how absolutely amazing they are by making it a daily routine).

I was wondering, would this recipe be possible to use for the stove-top as well? Or would any adjustments need to be made? (I’m new to homemade oats!)

Thank you for bringing this into my life! I don’t know how I lived before.

Chelsea

    Ha! Chelsea that’s too funny – “I don’t know how I lived before” = exactly something I would say!!! I haven’t made these on the stovetop but I don’t think you’d need to make any adjustments. I’d probably stir the greek yogurt in at the very end though. If you try it out please let me know how it goes!!

I very much enjoyed your post and the recipe looks amazing. I especially liked your reference to miss muffet’s mush and it’s connection to spiders. I think this is the same reason I don’t like cottage cheese. I remember the nursery rhyme saying she was eating curds and whey, but that looks just the same as plain oatmeal with milk.

Thank you for sharing this recipe, I can’t wait to try it!

Does anyone know the nutritional info for this? Sounds tasty, but looks like a lot off sugar for something that’s going to boost matabalisim and help lose weight.

Great recipe! Is there a substitution for the cream cheese?

I don’t know what I did wrong, but this came out super watery, like melted shake soup with oatmeal in it. T^T
I made a modified hot version of this and it came out awesome, but the overnight version not so much.

What about using quick oats?
