Salted Caramel Raspberry Overnight Oats

Creamy, thick, and full of delicious sweet caramelly flavors and pops of tart raspberries, this Salted Caramel Raspberry Overnight Oats is easy to make and tastes like you’re eating dessert for breakfast! It’s also topped with an irresistible peanut butter drizzle, high in protein and fiber, and guaranteed to start off your morning right!

Calling all my overnight oats lovers! I have a to-die-for flavor concoction for you today! 

This Salted Caramel Raspberry Overnight Oats is full of delicious sweet caramelly flavors and pops of tart raspberries. It’s also topped with a sublime peanut butter drizzle that’s made with salted caramel flavored powdered peanut butter. 

The salted caramel flavor in the oats comes from a vegan protein powder. It not only gives it a boost of protein, it also makes the oats wonderfully thick, creamy and taste like dessert. That said, either a vegan, whey or casein protein powder works in this recipe.

Did I mention this takes a just few short minutes to make and also refined sugar free? Just mix everything together, drizzle the peanut butter on top, then pop in the fridge and sleep in the next morning because this heavenly breakfast is ready and will be waiting for you! 

Top with fresh raspberries before enjoying and start off your morning right with this high protein and fiber breakfast!

If you love overnight oats and dessert-like tasting proats (protein oats), try my strawberry protein overnight oats, tiramisu overnight oats, and pumpkin spice overnight oats.

Ingredient Notes and Substitutes

Labeled ingredients salted caramel raspberry overnight oats.
  • Old Fashioned Rolled Oats: I used creamy style rolled oats to give these overnight oats an ultra-creamy and smooth texture. However, any type of type of old fashioned rolled oats including gluten-free certified oats will work. Avoid using steel cut and instant/quick cooking oats for this recipe. Steel cut oats will result in a too chewy texture and quick oats can’t be left too long in the fridge without turning into mush.
  • Salted Caramel Protein Powder: I love Macro Mike brand salted caramel protein powder for this recipe. It’s made from almond and faba bean protein, packed with vitamins and probiotics, refined sugar-free and gives whatever you mix it in an incredible creamy texture! That said, feel free to use a plant-based, whey, casein or whey-casein protein powder blend. Vanilla flavored protein powder also tastes great in this recipe if you prefer to use it instead.
  • Fat Free Greek Style Yogurt (plain): Or use Greek yogurt or any thick yogurt. If making this vegan, use a plant-based Greek or Greek style yogurt.
  • White Chia Seeds: Or use black chia seeds. They aid in boosting the protein content and also help thicken the mixture since they will absorb the liquid overnight. 
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk:  Or use any other plant-based or regular milk of your choice.
  • Sugar-free Maple or Pancake Syrup: I used Walden Farms Zero Calorie Pancake Syrup here, but their maple walnut syrup tastes great too. You can also use a pure maple syrup or any other sugar-free and/or calorie-free sweetener of your preference.
  • Raspberries: I like using fresh raspberries, but frozen raspberries will work nicely since they are being mashed.
  • Salted Caramel Powdered Peanut Butter: Powdered peanut butter is finely ground peanuts that have had their oils and fats removed. It’s less in calories and fat than regular peanut butter and can be reconstituted with water. I used Macro Mike brand salted caramel flavor, but regular (original) flavored powdered peanut butter such as the one by PB2 brand or any other brand also tastes great! We’ll use some to add a touch of peanut butter flavor in the oats itself and to make a drizzle for the topping. You can also just melt a little regular peanut butter for the drizzle. Melt in the microwave by heating on high for a few seconds.

Cook’s Tips

  • Use creamy style oats if you love all things thick and creamy. They give the overnight oats an incredibly thick and creamy texture! 
  • Cover with a small sheet of foil or cling wrap before refrigerating if using a bowl or jar without a lid.
  • Meal prep option. These overnight oats will last for up to 3 days if stored properly in the fridge. You can double or triple the ingredients as needed and mix the oats base ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Then divide evenly into jars/bowls and stir in the mashed raspberries. Top with fresh berries in the morning and enjoy! Note that they will get thicker the longer they sit in the fridge. You can add more milk to thin to your desired consistency before eating if needed.

Their almond proteins taste amazing and are great if you love creamy and thick textures in your overnight oats and protein shakes.

What are the benefits of peanut butter powder?

It’s a great source of protein and fiber and lower in calories than regular peanut butter. It’s fantastic for baking or in recipes that you want to add a peanut flavor to and protein but for less fat and calories than if you were to use a commercial or natural peanut butter.

Variations

  • Make it gluten-free. Use GF certified rolled oats and make sure that the protein powder you’re using is GF certified. (Macro Mike brand protein powders are gluten-free).
  • Make it dairy-free/vegan. Use a plant-based Greek style yogurt such as the one from Kite Hill brand or Cocobella. Don’t use a whey or casein protein powder as they contain milk products.
  • Use other berries. Make it with boysenberries, blackberries, or mulberries instead.
  • Use ground chia seeds. The nutrients are better absorbed by your body when they are in ground form. However, whole seeds are perfectly fine to use and are still a great source of nutrition.

Notes

  1. Salted Caramel Powdered Peanut Butter: Powdered peanut butter is finely ground peanuts that have had their oils and fats removed. It’s less in calories and fat than regular peanut butter and can be reconstituted with water. I used Macro Mike brand, but regular (original) flavored powdered peanut butter such as the one by PB2 brand or any other brand will work. You can also just melt a little regular peanut butter for the drizzle. Heat in the microwave on high for 10-20 seconds or until melted.
  2. Old Fashioned Rolled Oats. I used creamy style rolled oats by Red Tractor brand which give these overnight oats an ultra-creamy and smooth texture. Any type of type of old fashioned rolled oats including gluten-free certified oats will work. Do not use steel cut or instant/quick cooking oats for this recipe. Steel cut oats will become too chewy and quick oats will become too mushy as they will dissolve into the liquid overnight.
  3. Salted Caramel Protein Powder. I used Macro Mike brand salted caramel protein powder. It’s made from almond and faba bean protein, packed with vitamins and probiotics, and gives whatever you mix it in an incredible creamy texture! That said, feel free to use a plant-based, whey, casein or whey-casein protein powder blend. Vanilla flavored protein powder also tastes great in this recipe if you prefer to use it instead.
  4. Meal prep and make ahead. These overnight oats will last for up to 3 days if stored properly in the fridge. You can double or triple the ingredients as needed by clicking the ‘2x’ or ‘3x’  buttons at the top of the recipe card. Mix the oats base ingredients in a large mixing bowl, then divide evenly into jars and stir in the mashed raspberries. Cover and refrigerate. Top with fresh berries in the morning and enjoy! Note that the overnight oats will become increasingly thicker the longer they sit in the fridge. You can add more milk to thin to your desired consistency if needed when ready to eat.
