Overnight Quinoa Cups

If you’re a fan of overnight oats, you’re going to love this variation using quinoa.

So let’s put our meal prepping hat on for a minute. Let’s say you make a big batch of quinoa on Sunday, and you use it for taco or buddha bowls. And then you have some quinoa left over.

You could use that leftover quinoa in a salad, of course, such as my Quinoa and Black Bean Salad. Or, you could just throw a scoop on top of your favorite salad greens.

Or, you could use the quinoa to make a delicious breakfast parfait. These Overnight Quinoa Cups combine that leftover quinoa with some plant-based milk, coconut yogurt, and a few other ingredients to make a delicious and satisfying grab-and-go breakfast.

Serves 2


  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened plant milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup plant based yogurt, unsweetened. My fave is Coyo coconut yogurt.
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional) — or more, to taste
  • A handful of fresh berries
  • Garnish: coconut flakes and/or bee pollen


  • Step 1

    Mix all of the ingredients (except for the berries and garnishes of choice) together in a small bowl. Stir well, and then divide the mixture between two small bowls or mason jars. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

  • Step 2

    The next morning, remove from the fridge. Add a handful of fresh berries on top, and any other garnishes that sound tasty. Enjoy with a little drizzle of additional maple syrup and a shake of cinnamon.
