Make decadent Caramel Mocha Overnight Oats topped with whipped coffee for an over-the-top breakfast with tons of fiber, protein and caffeine!

I'm all about healthy breakfasts. I love a Healthy Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bowl or Blueberry Superfood Breakfast Smoothie in the morning. But sometimes, you just need something a little more exciting. This Caramel Mocha Overnight Oats with Whipped Coffee recipe is a total breakfast game-changer.

The creamy pudding-like oats are swirled with sweet caramel and soaked in chocolatey mocha cold brew for a breakfast that really wakes you up. If you love caramel pudding, coffee and oatmeal, you're going to want to treat yourself to this vegan breakfast all week long.

How to Make Caramel Mocha Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are a great go-to breakfast. You can prep them the night before and wake up to creamy, dreamy oats with any flavorings and toppings you like. This mocha version is just as easy to throw together.

Ingredient Notes

Here's what you need to make this over-the-top mocha oatmeal breakfast:

  • Thick-cut rolled oats. This kind of oat has the most fiber, protein and overall nutrients. It also provides the creamiest texture.
  • Mocha cold brew. I use the mocha cold brew with almond milk from Califia Farms. You can also make your own by combining ¼ cup of plain cold brew (or regular coffee) with ¾ cup almond milk and ¼ cup melted chocolate.
  • Caramel sauce. Use store-bought caramel or make your own with this recipe.
  • Flaxseed meal. This adds lots of fiber and healthy fats to the overnight oats.
  • Agave. Feel free to swap this for honey (if not vegan) or maple syrup.
  • Vanilla. For a nice warming flavor.
  • Cinnamon. To complement the vanilla.

Whipped Coffee Topping

I love the light-as-air whipped coffee on these caramel oats. So you don't want to miss this easy but impressive topping.

All you need to make it is:

  • Instant coffee. Use any brand you like.
  • Sugar. Choose organic to ensure it's vegan.
  • Almond milk. You can also use hot water, but the plant-based milk makes the whipped coffee extra creamy.
  • Vanilla. For just a hint of vanilla flavor

Whip your coffee with an electric mixer until it's light as air, then dollop it on top of your overnight oats. You'll get a double dose of coffee flavor and two deliciously contrasting textures.

Health Benefits of Oats

Oats, especially rolled oats, are a health superfood. They're packed with fiber and plant-based protien. Eating them for breakfast is a great way to ensure that you stay full and satisfied all morning log.

Oats are also a great source of antioxidants and may help balance blood sugar levels and reduce "bad" cholesterol in the blood.

Are Overnight Oats Gluten-Free?

This recipe is both vegan and gluten-free. Just make sure that your rolled oats are certified gluten-free.

Make-Ahead Mocha Overnight Oats

You can store the oats for up to five days in the fridge. This is a perfect recipe for breakfast meal prep.

  • 1 cup Mocha cold brew coffee w/ Almondmilk (I use Califia Farms; See notes!)
  • 4 Tbsps caramel sauce, homemade or store-bought! (See Notes!)
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
  • 2 Tbsps Agave syrup (See Notes!)
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt


  • 2 Tbsps Instant coffee
  • 2 Tbsps organic cane sugar
  • 3 Tbsps boiling hot water or Almond milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Caramel sauce, for drizzle



  • Add all ingredients to a medium bowl, stirring until well combined.
  • Tightly cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight (or at least 8 hours).


  • In a 2-cup measuring cup or jar, add in the instant coffee, sugar, vanilla, and hot water or milk, whisking until sugar dissolves.
  • Once dissolved completely, using a hand-mixer, whisk the coffee mixture on high-speed until it begins to thicken, form peaks, and becomes entirely whipped in texture, about 5-8 minutes.
  • To serve (hot or cold), add oats to a bowl or mason jar and top it with whipped coffee, and drizzle caramel sauce atop.
  • Bon Appetit!
