I’m always on team chocolate for breakfast. We use cacao powder in this recipe to add that rich chocolaty flavor to the oats. Cacao powder actually has some mighty fine health benefits. It is rich in polyphenols, may reduce blood pressure, and has been known to increase mood (duhh, it’s chocolaty!!).

Rolled oats are one of the healthiest grains out there. We’re talking fiber, antioxidants, and all kinds of vitamins. Combine them with chia seeds (more fiber and a little dose of protein) and we can confirm these oats definitely pass the healthy breakfast test!

Overnight oats are super simple to make. Just throw your ingredients in a bowl, or divide out into separate individual containers, let it sit overnight and BOOM you have yourself breakfast when you wake up in the morning. This recipe makes 5 servings so you can grab a jar of this deliciousness every day of the week as you’re running out the door. Don’t like having the same thing every day? No problemo. Mix up your toppings! Here are just a few I recommend pairing with this bowl of chocolaty heaven:

Simple Chocolate Overnight Oats



  1. Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl in the order they appear above (you want to add the milk in last so it’s easier to mix with the other ingredients)

  2. Once thoroughly mixed, transfer oats to a large airtight container or divide into 5 single serving jars and place in fridge overnight

  3. Spoon out approximately 1 cup of the oat mixture if you haven’t already separated into individual jars in the morning and enjoy!

Note: For individual serving or if you’d rather prepare the dry oat mixture and add the milk in the night before rather than making it all at once, simply add the following into an individual jar: 1/3 cup oats, 1/2 Tbsp chia seeds, 1 Tbsp cacao powder. The night before, add in 1/3 cup of nut milk and place in fridge overnight.
