These dairy free overnight oats will stay fresh for days in the fridge so mix up a big batch and serve it up as needed. The inclusion of the dates provides a refined sugar free sweetener, a significant amount of fiber and a variety of vitamins and minerals, including iron, potassium, B vitamins, copper, and magnesium. A great breakfast recipe that is easy, nutritious and one that will keep you full for a long period of time. 


  • 60 g 60 Jumbo oats (or porridge oats)

  • 1 tbsp 1 Chia seed

  • 6 6 Medjool Dates, pitted and roughly chopped

  • 30 g 30 Sunflower seeds 

  • 100 ml 100 Orange

  • 100 ml 100 Kombucha (or water)

  • To serve 
  • 1 1 Apple julienne (choose whatever is in season)

  • Coconut yoghurt 

  • Toasted nuts (whatever is in the pantry)


  • Combine the dates, oats, and seeds in a bowl. Add the juice and kombucha or water. Mix well. Cover the bowl and place in the fridge or a cool place for 6-8 hours or overnight. If possible, take the soaked oats out of the fridge half an hour before you want to eat them, so they’re not too chilly. Loosen the oats a little with extra liquid if you feel they need it. Serve topped with apple, coconut yoghurt and toasted nuts.

Cooking Notes

  • You could also choose to serve your oats with a milk of your choice.
  • The overnight oats will keep in the refrigerator for five days.
  • The addition of dates kick up the calorie intake in this breakfast dish, so it is perfect fuel for people with busy and physical lifestyles and kids who are forever on the move.
