It’s basically overnight oats but instead of using oats, it uses the cereal Weetabix/Weet-Bix.

You may recognize this trend from TikTok where the soaked Weetabix is topped with high-protein layers such as yogurt, protein powder and chia seeds.

But, if you don’t want to use yogurt, you found the right recipe.

To substitute the yogurt typically seen on overnight Weetabix, we’re using frozen raspberries.

The raspberries release some of their juices overnight to add moisture and sweetness.

The maple syrup drizzled over the soaked Weetabix in the morning is like pouring maple syrup over fluffy pancakes, gooey, sweet and delicious!

For added nutrition, try sprinkling some Peanut Butter Granola over the top just before serving.

🍓 Variations

This can be made in various flavors by using different types of milk, spices, nuts and dried fruit. Try out some of the below combinations if desired:

  • Milk: such as almond, soy, or coconut milk.
  • Spices: besides ground cinnamon such as cardamom, nutmeg, ginger or a touch of pumpkin pie spice – AMAZING!
  • Vanilla extract: can also be added for extra flavor because vanilla never fails.
  • Nuts: want added crunch and nutrition? Throw in some chopped almonds, walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, or a combination of your favorite nuts.
  • Dried fruit: such as sultanas, raisins, currants, cranberries, blueberries or apricots all work well.
  • Weetabix varieties: switch it up by using different flavored Weetabix such as protein, banana, chocolate, fruit & nut, multi-grain, honey or golden syrup varieties of Weetabix or Weetbix.

🍯 Toppings

These easy overnight Weetabix can be topped with a variety of ingredients for added flavor and texture. This recipe does not include yogurt but you’re more than welcome to add it along with:

  • Fresh fruit: such as sliced banana, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, apple, kiwi fruit or pear slices.
  • Seeds: sprinkle over sunflower, pumpkin, sesame, chia or hemp seeds before serving.
  • Yogurt: use regular dairy yogurt or coconut yogurt. Greek yogurt is also delicious and will cut through the sweetness.
  • Nut butter: dollop before serving either almond, peanut, hazelnut or cashew nut butters.
  • Jam: dollop over jam such as raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, plum or apricot jam just before serving.
  • Honey: drizzle over honey instead of maple syrup to serve or use rice malt syrup as a vegan alternative.
  • Cacao nibs: adds a touch of chocolate and crunch.
  • Granola: for extra nutrition and texture.
  • Coconut: garnish with some desiccated/finely shredded coconut or coconut flakes. Toasting the coconut is another tasty idea.

📋 Ingredient Notes & Substitutions

Ingredients to make overnight weetabix without yogurt are Weetabix, whole milk, ground cinnamon, maple syrup and frozen raspberries.
  • Weetabix is also known as Weet-bix in Australia and New Zealand. Use gluten-free Weetabix if you want a gluten-free recipe.
  • Whole milk – makes this recipe extra creamy. To make it dairy-free, simply substitute it with your favorite dairy-free milk such as almond, coconut or soy.
  • Frozen raspberries – to top your overnight Weetabix instead of adding yogurt as the raspberries thaw overnight and release some of their juices to add moisture. Substitute with fresh raspberries or another frozen berry.
  • Maple syrup – is drizzled over the soaked Weetabix just before serving. This also replaces the need for yogurt as it adds sweetness and moisture. Can be substituted with honey, agave or rice malt syrup.
  • Cinnamon – use ground cinnamon. This ingredient is optional but it adds a warm flavor perfect for those cold early mornings. Omit or substitute with ground cardamon or nutmeg.

💭 Tips For Recipe Success

  • Use a glass container with a fitted lid or a plastic Tupperware container with a sealed lid.
  • Make sure all the Weetabix flakes have been coated with the milk.
  • Add the frozen raspberries after you make it, not before serving, so they have time to thaw and release some of their juices overnight.
  • Soak the Weetabix in milk overnight but no longer than 12 hours otherwise it gets too mushy.
  • Add any crunchy toppings right before serving, not the night before. Such as granola, coconut flakes, cacao nibs or nuts, so they remain crisp and crunchy.

⏲️ Storage Instructions

Store in the container you make it in with a sealed lid, refrigerated, for 1-2 days for the best results. It can be left longer in the fridge, up to 2-3 days, however, the Weetabix will be very mushy and the raspberries will begin to spoil after 2 days.

I do not recommend freezing overnight Weetabix.

Yes! You can use a glass jar with a fitted lid instead of a container/Tupperware.

Yes! Simply follow the recipe as directed but use a cereal or mixing bowl instead of a container/Tupperware. Then, cover the bowl with a layer of plastic saran wrap, tightly.

You can, however, you may need less or more milk depending on what variety of oats you use, such as rolled or quick oats. Make sure the oats are soaked in the milk, it’s generally 1:1 oats to milk. Example: 1/2 cup oats and 1/2 cup milk.
