The Best Maple Oat Milk Latte Recipe
Hey all my coffee lovers, this one’s for you! I hope I’m not the only one who loves the smell of coffee shops. The bold, piercing aroma of espresso immediately gives me a jolt of energy, and I can’t help but perk up. Even if you are not the biggest coffee drinker, I’m sure you can appreciate the intoxicating smell of fresh coffee beans.
Something about those first few sips of piping hot coffee in the morning makes me feel like I can take on the world. It’s no wonder why so many of us are addicted to this magical elixir.
Coffee lover or not, this Maple Oatmilk Latte recipe is as good as any you’d get from your favorite coffee shop. And actually, it’s more than just coffee; it’s more like Breakfast On The Go. Let’s jump into the recipe deets, and I’ll explain further.
What You’ll Need For This Recipe
- Espresso. Lattes are traditionally made with espresso, but you can substitute with strongly brewed coffee if you don’t have an espresso machine. I used instant espresso and loved it.
- Maple syrup. Adds natural sweetness and helps to balance out the bitterness of the coffee.
- Vanilla extract. Adds a lovely depth of flavor.
- Cinnamon. For that fall spice flavor.
- Oatmilk. You can use any milk you like, but I love oat milk’s creamy, rich texture. I make sure to get the barista-style cause its best for frothing.
- Ground cinnamon. Enhances the fall spice flavor. You can also add a pinch of nutmeg or allspice.
- Oat milk. You can use any milk you like, but I love oat milk’s creamy, rich texture. Some oat milk brands have barista-style options, often better for frothing.
- Bob’s Red Mill Maple Sea Salt Homestyle Granola. This is optional, but I love to top my latte with a bit of granola for added texture and flavor.

For the full recipe and detailed baking instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post.
Brew your coffee. You can brew your coffee using a standard coffee maker, Keurig, espresso machine, Nespresso, or a classic French Press espresso maker.
Add flavor. Add espresso/coffee to mugs and stir in maple syrup, vanilla, and cinnamon.
Add oat milk to a mason jar and heat in the microwave (uncovered) for 1 minute. Remove from the microwave and seal the mason jar with a lid. Secure a good hold on the mason jar with a towel and shake vigorously for 90 sections or until you see foam forming above the oat milk.
Gently pour the warm oat milk into the brewed coffee while holding back the milk foam from the glass with a spoon. Top with a thin layer of milk foam and a sprinkle of maple sea salt granola.
* Yummy Tip: Feel free to add more granola to the latte for a yummy espresso-flavored cereal on the go.
Maple Latte, The Perfect Pairing
What makes this latte so special is the addition of creamy oat milk paired with extra mapley enhancements. Maple syrup is one of my favorite fall flavors. I love using Grade A Dark Color Robust Taste maple syrup because it has a stronger maple flavor and pairs perfectly with coffee drinks.
Maple and oat milk are another fantastic flavor combo. The oat milk provides a lovely creaminess, while the maple syrup adds just the right amount of sweetness. Oatmilk is surprisingly rich, creamy, and a great plant-based alternative to cow milk. It pairs perfectly with the bold espresso flavor, and adding maple syrup and cinnamon gives this latte a warm, fall-inspired twist.
I topped the latte with Bob’s Red Mill Maple Sea Salt Homestyle Granola to enhance that fall maple flavor further. What happened next, I wasn’t prepared for.
The granola bits eventually sank to the bottom of my mug and soaked up all the coffee. Once I sipped to the bottom of the cup, I was left with espresso cereal which I might add is deliciously warm, pleasant, and nutty. Talk about breakfast on the go; this is the epitome. If coffee cereal isn’t a thing yet, it should be.
Can you make a latte with regular coffee?
Yes, you can make a latte with regular coffee. You can brew your coffee using a standard coffee maker, moka pot, Keurig, espresso machine, Nespresso, or a classic French Press espresso maker.
What is froth?
Froth is the layer of bubbles that forms on the surface of milk when it is heated and agitated. It is commonly created by adding to air to milk with a hand whisk, electric frother or blender. Alternatively, you can add your warm milk to a mason jar and shake vigorously to achieve similar results.
Do I need to use oat milk?
No, you can use any type of milk you like. Oat milk just happens to go really well with this receip!
Is oat milk easy to froth?
Sometimes. Most nondairy milk has weaker protein bonds, making it challenging to hold air bubbles. But when gellan, a food additive, is added, it helps to create a more stable foam in nondairy milk.
