The ultimate indulgence in your daily breakfast. The best part? It’s totally healthy!
This is one of the easiest breakfasts you can make yourself. I make 5 at a time and eat them all week. My husband even takes them to work with him. They travel very well. Between the chia seeds and the cocao powder, you are getting a lot of antioxidants. Also a lot of protein and fiber! This will keep you full until lunchtime. If you don’t know what cacao powder is, it is chocolate in it’s most raw form. It can be bitter, but it’s so good for you. I usually put a chopped medjool date in my oatmeal and it turns into a caramel overnight. It gives just a hint of sweetness. You can also use maple syrup.

My recipe makes a thicker oatmeal. If you like yours thinner, just add a bit more milk. Take out in the morning and enjoy. I eat mine cold right out of the fridge. You can also try my Overnight Oats in a Jar.
