Trying to find a way to sneak eggnog into every part of your day? Me too.

In this recipe, we’re using vegan eggnog in place of regular plant-based milk to make overnight oats. It’s a delicious, sweet and festive vegan breakfast!

Because this recipe uses eggnog as the base, you don’t need to add any additional sweeteners or spices. That being said, you can add more if you’d like. I love to add a sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg to enhance the holiday flavor, but this is completely optional. You can keep this recipe as simple as possible or you can fill it with toppings!

How to Make Vegan Eggnog Overnight Oats:

Simply add rolled oats, vegan eggnog, plant-based milk, chia seeds, vanilla and spices in a jar and stir to combine. Place it in the fridge overnight to let it thicken. If you’re in a rush, you can also get similar results in about one hour, but I recommend keeping it in the fridge to soak overnight. It results in the best texture.

The next morning, add more plant-based milk or eggnog if you want thinner overnight oats. Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!

The Best Store-Bought Vegan Eggnogs:

If you’re looking for the best store-bought vegan eggnog to use in this recipe (or to enjoy as is during the Holidays), here are my recommendations. Keep in mind that these are my personal favorite eggnogs here in Canada. There may be other brands available where you live.

  • Earth’s Own Oat Nog: My personal favorite. This vegan eggnog is new this year and is made from oats. For that reason, unlike many vegan eggnogs out there, it doesn’t taste like coconut. I highly recommend this one, especially if you’re not a fan of coconut.
  • So Delicious Holiday Nog: This is a delicious option if you enjoy coconut. It does have that eggnog flavor that I love, but it does taste somewhat strongly of coconut. I did love it in this recipe!

Notes

The vegan eggnog that you use will affect the taste of the overnight oats. My personal favorites are the Earth’s Own Oat Nog and the Holiday Nog from So Delicious. 
This recipe will already be sweet thanks to the eggnog. However, you can add more sweetener to taste or make the recipe less sweet by using more plant-based milk and less eggnog.
This recipe was tested with both soy milk and oat milk. Feel free to use your favorite plant-based milk, ideally plain and unsweetened.
Suggested toppings: Chopped almonds, walnuts, cashews, pecans or other nuts of choice, shredded coconut, pomegranate, diced apples, banana slices or coconut whipped cream.
