Easy Cinnamon-Raisin Overnight Oats are the perfect high-fiber, make-ahead, healthy weekday breakfast! No cooking required!
Vegan Cinnamon-Raisin Overnight Oats
I made this Cinnamon-Raisin Overnight Oats recipe for my brother, and now he’s hooked! It’s a heart-healthy, high-fiber breakfast that is easy to make and perfect to eat on the go. To increase the fiber I add chia seeds and flax seeds, making this 12 grams of fiber per serving, almost half of my daily goal of at least 25 grams per day. This nourishing boost supports digestion and helps you stay satisfied until your next meal.

Cinnamon-Raisin Overnight Oats Ingredients
- Oats: Use a third cup of quick oats. I prefer organic, but regular are good too.
- Seeds: You’ll need a tablespoon each of ground flax and chia seeds.
- Milk: I used almond milk, but any kind will work.
- Cinnamon for warmth and depth of flavor
- Sweetener: Choose your favorite sweetener, like monk fruit, stevia, or brown sugar.
- Raisins: Mix a tablespoon of raisins into the oats and top with more if desired.
- Toppings: Finish off your overnight oats with sliced banana, walnuts, hemp seeds, or any other kind of nut or seed.
How to Make Cinnamon-Raisin Overnight Oats
- Mix Overnight Oat Ingredients: Stir oats, flax and chia seeds, milk, cinnamon, sweetener, and raisins in a mason jar or storage container.
- Refrigerate the oats overnight or at least three to four hours.
- Overnight Oats Consistency: Remove the lid and stir when ready to eat. If the oats are too thick, add a little milk.
- Toppings: Eat the oats straight out of the jar or pour into a bowl, and top with sliced banana, walnuts, and raisins for more texture and sweetness.
- Gluten-Free Overnight Oats: Substitute gluten-free oats.
- Dried Fruit: Swap raisins with dried cranberries or chopped prunes.
- Toppings: Top your overnight oats with berries, pecans, or almonds.
- Apple Cinnamon Raisin Overnight Oats: Add apples instead of bananas.
- Spices: Add a pinch of nutmeg, or swap cinnamon for pumpkin pie spice.
- Vanilla Extract: Stir in a little vanilla with the milk.
How to Store Overnight Oats
These cinnamon-raisin overnight oats will last up to five days in the fridge. They’re perfect for meal prep, so double, triple, or quadruple the recipe to prepare breakfasts for the week.
Yes, overnight oats are healthy. Although they can be high in carbohydrates, they’re also high in fiber and protein, making them a smart choice for a balanced diet. Using monk fruit or stevia reduce the added sugar. Oats are also a great source of vitamins and minerals, like copper, magnesium, and B vitamins.
These overnight oats with dairy-free milk are creamier and have a richer flavor than ones with water. Of course, water can also be used.
Sweetener, spices, and fruit all make overnight oats taste better. Start with a teaspoon of sweetener and add a little more at a time until they are sweet enough for you.
