One delicious way to incorporate matcha into your diet is by making matcha overnight oats.
To make these oats, start by mixing rolled oats, nondairy milk, matcha powder, maple syrup (or other sweetener), and chia seeds in a mason jar or container.

What Are Overnight Oats?
Overnight Oats are non-cooked oatmeal absorbed in liquid during the night.
You can use pretty much any kind of oats- steel-cut oats, traditional rolled oats, quick oats.
I personally like to use old-fashioned rolled oats, because they absorb the liquid faster but still retain the texture than quick oats.
You can use fruits and nuts for your toppings. Such as apples, bananas, mixed berries, mangoes, dried fruit like dried cranberries, pine nuts, almonds, toasted coconut threads or walnuts…etc.
What You Need To Make Overnight Oats with Green Tea Matcha Powder
It only needs six ingredients for this creamy and no-fat recipe. Simple, easy, and perfect for meal prep!
- Old-fashioned Rolled Oats – While traditional rolled oats are the most common type of oat to use, you can also use quick oats or steel-cut oats. (Steel-cut oats need to be soaked longer than other types of oats) PS: For gluten-free eaters, you need to buy certified gluten-free oats.
- Matcha Green Tea Powder– Matcha green tea powder tastes bitter by itself, but it works perfectly in this recipe with maple syrup to balance out the flavors. Please check the ingredient label before purchasing, as some matcha powder may contain milk powder.

- Plant-based Milk – You can use any type of non-dairy milk you like. Coconut milk, soy milk, almond milk, macadamia milk cashew milk…etc.
- Chia Seeds– This recipe works for both white and black chia seeds. Or you can mix black and white chia seeds. Chia seeds are loaded with antioxidants, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and fiber. It’s good to have!
- Vanilla Extract– Good quality vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste.
- Mixed toasted nuts– here I use toasted pine nuts. You can use slivered almonds, pumpkin seeds, and desiccated coconut…etc.
My Favorite Topping
I use blueberries. You can use other dried, frozen, or fresh fruits such as sultanas, raisins, currants, strawberries, apricots, and white mulberries.
