Mango Overnight Oats

Creamy mango overnight oats is the perfect on-the-go breakfast that you can prep the night before. Healthy, delicious, and portable!

My father-in-law loves mangoes. He can, and often does, talk about them for hours. I like mangoes as well, but I never remember to buy them when I’m at the market. However, I’ve been wanting to change up my breakfast routine lately, so I decided to create an overnight oats recipe with mango. If you’ve never made overnight oats before, they are a great way to prep a healthy breakfast ahead of time. And because I prepared mine in mason jars, they are portable for going to work or school!

This recipe for mango overnight oats can be prepared in five minutes, and then all you have to do is place it in the refrigerator for a few hours (or overnight). The result is a creamy, slightly sweet, decadent, and healthy (gluten-free AND vegan!) breakfast. The oats absorb the almond milk and the flax seeds act as a thickener while providing additional fiber. Cinnamon and nutmeg add subtle warm spiciness and complement the sweet mango.

Three Easy Steps!

  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine all of the ingredients and transfer to two jars or containers with lids.
  • Chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or overnight, until mixture thickens.
  • Top with your favorite oatmeal toppings. Can be stored in refrigerator for up to 2 days.

What Are Flax Seeds?

Flax seeds are nutrient-dense and fiber-rich seeds that have a slightly nutty taste. They are often added to food to provide additional fiber and improve digestive health. Flax seeds can also be used as an egg substitute in baked goods, where they act as a binder.

Variations & Substitutions

  • Add your favorite topping to your mango overnight oats! Shredded coconut, toasted walnuts, and toasted almonds would all be delicious.
  • Substitute any non-dairy milk if you don’t have almond milk on hand. Dairy milk will also work great.
  • Replace the cinnamon and/or nutmeg with your favorite warm spices. Cardamom, ginger, or allspice would all taste great.
  • Use whatever type of fruit you have available! Apples, blueberries, bananas, and strawberries could all be swapped for the mango.
  • Simply double the recipe to make 4 jars of overnight oats.
  • If you’d like, you can substitute chia seeds for the flax seeds.
