Move over oats, these overnight Weetabix with Nutella are a breakfast game-changer. Perfectly sweet and creamy, this breakfast will also keep you feeling full until lunch time!
If you're up-to-date on internet foodie trends (thanks, TikTok), you've likely heard of overnight Weetabix by now.
Taking inspiration from the favourite healthy breakfast overnight oats, this overnight Weetabix/ overnight Weetbix recipe takes the same concept of soaking overnight and applies it to this staple cereal.
One key difference: Overnight Weetabix is layered, whereas everything is mixed together in overnight oats.
By starting with a Weetabix layer, then adding toppings in a new layer, you get more of a parfait-like result. The finished product is sort of like a sweet, protein-filled, cheesecake without the crunchy crust.
Of course, people are — naturally —polarised about the soggy Weetabix. But we think it tastes great!
What Do Overnight Weetabix Taste Like
This nutella overnight Weetbix recipe falls somewhere in the same category as yogurt parfaits.
- high protein
- easy to make
- perfect for a grab-and-go breakfast
- totally customisable
Thanks to the yogurt layer, you do get a strong yogurt flavour while eating overnight Weetabix. Just like a yogurt bowl or parfait, though, the real fun comes from what toppings you decide to add.
For this recipe, we kept it simple with a swirl of Nutella (yum!), but you could also add strawberries or bananas to the mix for some extra fruit.
Think of overnight weetbix like 'weetbix overnight oats' - different grains, but the same concept!
FAQ and Troubleshooting
Yep! Weetbix is the Aussie version of Weetabix, so it'll work just the same!
You can use any yogurt you'd like! For a higher protein option, we recommend something a vanilla flavoured greek yogurt like Chobani Fit.
To allow the overnight Weetabix to set, we recommend refrigerating it for at least 4 hours before eating.
Definitely! For high-protein overnight Weetabix, simply add 10-15 grams of your favourite protein powder to the yogurt, and stir well before layering onto the Weetabix layer.
If you're not a fan of Nutella, you can swap it out for peanut butter, Biscoff spread, jam, or simply leave it out altogether.
