Birthday Cake Overnight Oats

February 04, 2015



Ready for the overnight oats recipe of your dreams?!  P&P's second birthday is next week (yay!) so I figured it was the perfect time to give into my cake craving and indulge in a birthday breakfast! I've taken your basic oo's (overnight oats), added some raw cookie dough bites, a spoonfull of cookie butter, and some sprinkles for good measure. The fact that this recipe is totally healthy and is great on the go is an added bonus!


I make overnight oats every Sunday for the work week. I line up my jars and get an assembly line going… first the oats, then the chia, then the almond milk, and any additions. I am completely addicted to customizing them each morning, and adding different toppings and fruit. Not only are they creamy bowls of goodness, they are insanely filling and super healthy! I usually add raisins, some crunchy granola and fresh fruit. Since the classic overnight oats recipe is not really ground breaking and you can find a billion and five on Pinterest, I thought I would divulge a way to make your oats next level. Birthday cake for breakfast? Pretty much. It will fill you until lunch time, give you a surplus of energy and tastes incredibly incredible.


Basic Overnight Oats:
1/3 cup whole grain rolled oats
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon cinnamon
dash of vanilla
3/4 cup almond milk

  1. Add all contents to container or mason jar and shake.
  2. Refrigerate over night.

Raw Cookie Dough:
1/3 cup whole grain rolled oats
2/3 cup raw cashews
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1.5 tablespoons vanilla agave syrup
dash of vanilla
2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips (I also added 1 tablespoon of chocolate covered sunflower seeds, and a few pastel sprinkles)

  1. Blend together oats and cashews in food processor (I used a Magic Bullet). Stop when mixture is a fine powder. Be careful not to over mix- only takes a few seconds!
  2. Add maple syrup, agave, vanilla and pulse for a few more seconds.
  3. Pour mixture into bowl and stir in chocolate chips (and sprinkles if using). 
  4. Form into balls (if dough is too sticky to work with, chill in freezer to set).
  5. Store in freezer and pop in mouth when ever you are looking for a healthy sweet treat (breaky with yogurt? pre-gym? post-gym? do you even have any left? I consumed half the bowl before I could finish rolling and had to make another batch!)

Birthday Cake Overnight Oats:
  1. Remove jar of oats from fridge about half hour before you are going to eat so they reach room temperature. I usually take my jar out of the fridge while making a coffee and come back to my oats after I'm done getting ready.
  2. Add a few balls of the raw cookie dough on top.
  3. Add a spoon full of your favourite nut butter. I used Trader Joe's Cookie Butter (this stuff is insane... so worth a trip over the border for!).
  4. Top with sprinkles, coconut flakes, or more chocolate chips. 
  5. Mix around with spoon and devour!

Voila! The perfect {healthy} birthday cake inspired breakfast!

Glitter spoons are always fun too… Target- why are you leavinggggg??
