We can customise it with endless options
Oats: Old fashioned rolled oats, also referred to as “rolled oats,” are ideal for their texture and taste. You can use porridge oats or quick oats. Nevertheless, the texture and taste could differ from old-fashioned oats.
Milk: Although I used unsweetened almond milk, any plant based milk, such as coconut, soy, or oats milk, would work.
Sweetener: I have used maple syrup, but you can use any sweetener of your choice.
Cocoa powder: As a topping, add a lovely flavour to oatmeal.
Instant coffee: To boost the flavour of the breakfast.
Vanilla extract: To enhance the flavour of overnight oats.
Yogurt: Store-bought Greek yogurt works, but homemade creamy yogurt is also a good option.

Substitutions and Variations
Sweetener: Use any sweetener of your choice instead of maple syrup.
Nuts and seeds: Cashews, walnuts, sunflower seeds, or melon seeds can be used. Flax meal could be used as well.
Dairy free: To make dairy free overnight oats, switch to coconut yogurt instead of dairy yogurt.
Spices: A warm spice such as cinnamon or nutmeg could be used to enhance the flavour.
Gluten free version: Use certified gluten-free rolled oats instead of regular ones.
Chia seeds: It makes a healthy addition to breakfast oats.
You can keep Tiramisu overnight oats in airtight mason jars in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Tips and Tricks
If you don't want to eat your oats super cold, let the oats jar sit on the counter for 10-15 minutes after removing it from the fridge.
To get the desired porridge-like texture, add an adequate amount of milk. Although it may seem like too much milk, the oats will soak it up and be the perfect consistency in the morning.
Make sure there is room in the bowl for the oats to expand as they absorb the liquid and double in size.
Of course, you can. Soaking it for a long time will be necessary and the texture will be much chewier than rolled oats.
What is an alternative to instant coffee?
Espresso is the ideal replacement for instant coffee. That being said, espresso is much stronger than instant coffee.
