Vegan Overnight Oats made with Pumpkin seeds (pepitas), maple syrup and matcha offer the best of all worlds. Fast, delicious, healthy and abundant.
I have been having fun with a new cookbook called The Healthy Matcha Cookbook by Miryam Quinn-Doblas. If you havn’t run across matcha yet it is green tea in powder form that you use in your recipes. It’s a powerful antioxidant and the health benefits exceed that of green tea. And you know how good that is for you!
From the looks of this cookbook there are endless opportunities to incorporate matcha into your meals. I really only knew how to put it in my smoothies so I am very grateful for Miryam’s work. The fudge was not only delicious but beautiful too with the soft green shade of matcha. There is also a lovely Asian Quinoa Salad that was a perfect lunch when we had company over one day.
Finally, I made my decision on what I wanted to make for you. It is the Vegan Overnight Oats. Believe it or not I had never made them before and the ingredients were some of my favorites. So this was a great opportunity to see how overnight oats really work.
Everything goes in a bowl and then into the refrigerator to set overnight. In the morning you have a fabulously delicious and healthy breakfast, warm or cold. My new favorite thing in the world.

Vegan Overnight Oats
- 6 cups almond milk
- 4 cups rolled oats
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1 teaspoon matcha powder
- In a large bowl, add all the ingredients and mix thoroughly. If you noticed the mixture is too dry, add more milk, as the rolled oats and chia seeds will absorb some of the milk overnight.
- Place mixture in the refrigerator overnight.
- Serve the next morning with some extra nuts and milk, if desired.
Miryam's Note: You can serve these oats cold or warm. I like mine lukewarm so I warm my serving for about a minute in the microwave. I also tend to add more unsweetened coconut chips for some crunch.
There are 59 recipes and each has a color photo. All the bases are covered from energizing breakfasts onto healthy snacks into lean green meals and finally decadent desserts. Easy to follow instructions make for many happy meals for the future.
Besides comprehensive information about the history and benefits of matcha there is also a 2 week meal plan.
