Swap your daily Starbucks for these Pistachio Latte Overnight Oats for allll the pistachio latte flavor you love, with none of the 10 a.m. sugar crash slumps! These oats are nutty, not-too-sweet and topped with a dreamy pistachio greek yogurt “crema”.

Not only are they delicious, Pistachio Latte Overnight Oats are a great option for a healthy, balanced breakfast. The base of this recipe is made of fiber-rich oats, chia and flaxseeds, helping you feeling full and stabilize blood sugars. Together, Greek yogurt, protein powder and milk (some types more than others) offer a good amount of protein, while the pistachio butter contributes smaller amounts in addition to some healthy fats.

Pistachio Latte Overnight Oat Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need – find the full instructions and recipe notes below!

  • quick cooking or old fashioned rolled oats (see FAQ – What kind of oats are best for overnight oats?)
  • chia and ground flaxseed – help absorb liquid and gives the oats a more pudding-like texture.
  • milk – any kind will work, whether dairy or non-dairy (soy, almond, coconut, oat or even pistachio milk to really maximize that pistachio flavour!)
  • espresso or strong coffee – essential for any pistachio latte. Go with decaf or replace a portion with milk if you want to avoid extra caffeine.
  • pistachio butter – you should be able to find this in the health aisle of your grocery store or at many Walmarts or Costcos. You can also make your own pistachio butter by blending pistachios in a food processor or high-powered blender until smooth.
  • vanilla Greek yogurt – for the latte “crema”. Plain yogurt will work but you may need to add a bit of sweetener to your taste.
  • sweetener – a liquid sweetener like honey or maple syrup works best in this recipe.
  • pistachios – an optional topping for a little added texture and crunch!

Meal Prep & Storage Tips

Meal prepping breakfast always helps me eat a balanced meal in the morning, even on the days I’m short on time. Overnight oats are perfect for meal prepping! Here are a few pointers you may find helpful for making these pistachio overnight oats ahead of time:

  • when preparing overnight oats for multiple days, measure ingredients directly into individual serving containers like an assembly line (first measure oats into each container, followed by chia seeds, flax etc). I love small glass bowls or jars with resealable lids for this. Or you can make one large batch by multiplying the recipe, then scoop out your desired portion each morning!
  • be sure to store the yogurt crema mixture separately. Yogurt can get watery as it sits and you often need to restir it before serving. Top your oats right before, or the morning of eating.
  • while these overnight oats may only need two hours to sit, I love making them the night before. That way, the oats fully soak and ready to grab out of the fridge in the morning.
  • because they last 4-5 days in the fridge, these oats are the perfect made-ahead breakfast for the work week!

Pistachio Latte Overnight Oats: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What kind of oats are best for overnight oats?

I have found that quick cooking and old fashioned rolled oats work best for overnight oat recipes. Steel cut oats are not a great choice because they remain too firm if only soaked. Some people find that quick oats get mushy when prepped multiple days in advance, but they have been fine in my experience. For prepping a few days out, you may want to use rolled oats but it is up to preference!

How long do overnight oats need to sit?

When using quick oats, as little as 2 hours is needed for the oats to set. However, I would recommend preparing them the day before and allowing the oats to sit overnight to ensure they are fully soaked and hydrated.

Can this recipe be made vegan?

Yes, this recipe can easily be made vegan. Choose a dairy-free milk and yogurt (such as soy or coconut), use maple syrup as a sweetener and opt for a plant-based protein powder, if using.

Do Pistachio Latte Overnight Oats contain caffeine?

Because this recipe contains espresso/coffee, it does contain caffeine. A double shot of espresso (1/4 cup or 60mL) contains approximately 120mg of caffeine. If you are trying to reduce your intake, opt for decaf or replace a portion (or the whole amount) of coffee in the recipe with additional milk.
