Carob Tahini overnight oats with basil seeds, figs, and bananas. These overnight oats are so deliciously decadent with a creamy chocolaty taste that it is so easy to mistakenly take this wholesome goodness for dessert.

This recipe is as easy as mixing all of the ingredients at night. That’s it. In the morning, you can make it as fancy as you want to, but your overnight oats are good to eat as they are right out of the fridge. (well, at room temperature)
In the morning, I love to enjoy my overnight oats with banana and some figs. There are two ways to do it – the first way is to caramelize figs and bananas; the second is – to enjoy them raw.
You can serve them with almond milk yogurt, but the morning I made this video I ran out of my homemade yogurt (it is very popular in my house, you know 😋 😉), so I made a cashew-vanilla pudding on the fly the night before. That’s what I’m having my overnight oats with this morning.
Now, this is an absolutely optional but utterly delicious topping… I love to make a carob chocolate glaze to go with this overnight oats. This Carob chocolate glaze has only two ingredients – 2 tablespoons of cacao butter and one tablespoon of roasted carob powder. (watch me do it in the video)
Eat with joy; if you used fresh milk, you could keep this oatmeal in the fridge for up to 4 days; this recipe makes 3 servings
PS. I’m using home-made tahini for this recipe.Make it yourself or use your favorite brand.
