“Give basic cinnamon oatmeal a spice upgrade with the warm and toasty notes of chai. Coconut milk makes these overnight oats ultra-creamy and delicately sweet too.”


    • ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats (see Tip)
    • ½ cup water
    • Pinch of salt
    • 3 tablespoons unsweetened coconut milk beverage
    • 2 tablespoons toasted unsweetened coconut chips
    • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
    • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • ⅛ teaspoon ground ginger
    • Pinch of ground cardamom
    • Pinch of ground pepper


  • 1 Combine oats, water and salt in a jar or bowl and stir. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • 2 In the morning, heat the oats, if desired, or eat cold. Top with coconut milk, coconut, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and pepper.
  • Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
  • To make ahead: When prepping the oatmeal the night before, measure and toast the ingredients for the topping.
