What is overnight Weetabix?

Overnight Weetabix is a Tik Tok food trend that involves soaking Weetabix in milk and layering with yogurt and all kinds of fun, nutritious toppings.

Just like with overnight oats and chia pudding, you can make it ahead of time and enjoy with all kinds of toppings. The difference is that rather than mixing everything together, you make layers for the overnight Weetabix.

As a mom of two littles who wake up ready to eat, make ahead breakfasts are a Godsend!

I hope this makes your mornings easier and more enjoyable as well!

And you should totally try this custard yogurt toast, another viral Tik Tok recipe.

Ingredients

All the ingredients laid out on na white background.
  • Weetabix breakfast cereal – These are wheat biscuits that have been produced in the United Kingdom since 1932! In Australia, it’s called Weet-Bix. If you can’t find it, this recipe will also work with plain shredded wheat squares.
  • Milk – I like to use whole milk for flavor and the extra fat, which babies and toddlers need to support their rapid brain development. However, you can use any milk of choice, like oat milk or almond milk.
  • Yogurt – Greek yogurt works best but you can also use plain, if preferred, or any dairy-free alternative.
  • Toppings – I am going to show you how to make the peanut butter and banana version, but there are endless ways to customize this easy breakfast. See below for more ideas.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Note: I’m sharing how to make the pb and banana version. Steps 1 and 2 will always be the same, but the others will change depending on what you decide to add.

  1. In a container (can be any shape), crush Weetabix biscuits. It doesn’t have to all be the same size.
  2. Add milk and flatten the Weetabix base with a back of a smooth.
  3. Add mashed or sliced bananas on top.
  4. In another bowl, combine yogurt, peanut butter, and cinnamon. You can also add your sweetener of choice, if desired. Spread on top of the Weetabix and banana layer.
  5. Close the container lid and store in the refrigerator overnight.
  6. Top with more banana, coconut, granola, or any toppings of choice and dig in!

Variations

The Weetabix layer will always stay the same. Where you can have fun experimenting is the yogurt layer and the extra toppings! There is seriously no limit to the number of flavour combinations possible.

You can spread any of these on top of the yogurt or combine with yogurt in a separate bowl before layering.

Alternative to yogurt

You can also leave out the yogurt completely and add all kinds of toppings just like with overnight oats. Simply spread on top of the Weetabix layer:

Add these on top of the yogurt layer right before serving

  • Nuts – be sure to finely chop or grind depending on your child’s age as whole nuts are a choking hazard
  • Seeds
  • Granola
  • Shredded coconut
  • Fresh fruits, like blueberries, raspberries, pears

Tips for Success

  • There’s no need to take extra care to crush the Weetabix thoroughly. It will soften once combined with milk.
  • I recommend using plain yogurt instead of flavored yogurt, especially for babies and toddlers, so you can control the amount of sugar.
  • If you want to enjoy this as a filling dessert, you can add crushed cookies (like Biscoff), caramel, chocolate chips, etc.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it have to be refrigerated overnight?

You don’t have to, but you want to try and make it at least an hour before and refrigerate to allow the layers to set.

Can I serve overnight weetbix to my baby?

Yes! This layered Weetabix can be served to your baby as soon as they are ready for solids. It has the perfect, soft texture and packs a lot of nutrition. Dairy is one of the top allergens so be sure to introduce it separately from other allergens, like wheat.

You can also leave out the yogurt and just add fruits or vegetables as suggested above.

How long can it be stored in the refrigerator?

While you can refrigerate for up to 3 days, I recommend enjoying within 24 hours as the Weetabix layer gets mushier the longer it sits.

    Excellent recipe, it’s so creamy and delicious. When I make it for myself I leave out the banana, add a small amount of agave to sweeten it , and 1-2 scoops of protein powder. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    One more of your recipes to add to our granddaughters rotation. She loves it and what a great meal to start the day. I sprinkle a few chia seeds after I pour in the unsweetened almond milk. We use non-dairy unsweetened cashew yogurt from Trader Joes. She is a little vegetarian and we started her on your recipes as soon as she started eating (2.5 years old now). Thanks so much!

        My boys (3.5 & 1 yo) loved this recipe! Perfect make ahead breakfast. I make this for the mornings my husband feeds them. That way I know they’re getting a good start! It’s so yummy my 3.5 yo thinks of this more as a dessert. However, it doesn’t keep very well for a second day. I find the banana layer gets a bit yucky. We’re totally willing to try different variations though. For now we just omit it. Oh, one last thing! I had no idea PB, Greek yogurt, and a little cinnamon could be so yummy!!

      2. So good, right? And I’m with you! It’s best to eat within 24 hours. Right? Such an unexpectedly delicious combo 🙂

    Went to Central market to grab Weetabix after I saw your post! This was easy and delicious! Added honey for my 3.5 year old and for myself. If the cereal itself didn’t have a little added sugar, I would’ve given it to my 6 month old as well! Looking forward to making this again!! Thanks for the recipe!
