What do breakfast and brothels have in common? Tiramisu, of course! If you’re cocking your head and saying “huh” right now I. first, recommend you go look up the origin of this delectable Italian dessert and then come back and make this vegan, Tiramisu Overnight Oats!
This spin on the classic sweet treat is just as sweet but far more nourishing. Loaded with protein and fiber, the “cream” layer is made up of silken tofu, rolled oats, chia seeds, and even a vegetable! Sweetened with a touch of maple syrup, this breakfast with satisfy your sweet tooth while also keeping you full and ready to take on the day.
You’ll also be ready to get up and at’em with the caffeine boost (seriously, go look up the origin of tiramisu). Usually tiramisu is made with ladyfingers dunked in coffee, but...ain’t nobody got time to make homemade vegan ladyfingers for breakfast. What do you think this is? A food blog?? So instead, I used biscoff cookies, soaked them in strong coffee, and layered them throughout the overnight oats. And, sorry Italian harletts, I think it’s better. Sorry, not sorry.
If you happen to have vegan ladyfingers on hand, feel free to use those though! Or any sweet biscuit of your choice.
This is also the perfect meal prep breakfast. After just a quick whizz in the blender, a few dunks, and assembling, you’ll have breakfast ready for the week! You’ll be able to have your breakfast and morning coffee all in one, portable jar. Plus, it looks super cute and will make all your coworkers jealous. And what’s better than that?
If you love tiramisu, you’re going to love this breakfast. And if you’re going to make love, you’ll also love this recipe. Seriously, just go look up where the originally dessert came from, would you?
