Almond Butter Chocolate Overnight Oats


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 cacao 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.

Recipe Notes

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.

  1. I'm new to your site.. and am fumbling on this one. Are you saying you don't cook the oats? Just soak it in the fridge just like that?!
    1. Yes! That's what makes the recipe so great. No cooking at all. If you use steel cut oats, they will still retain a bit of a crunch. If you use rolled oats, it will be smooth. I eat mine cold, but you can heat it up in the morning as well.
  2. I love your site and have been making many of the recipes especially the overnight oats. This recipe is my favorite so far! It is better than any flavored oatmeal packet I could get in a store! Thanks so much, I love coming here and finding something new to try as I'm such a sweets lover.
    1. Thanks Melanie! That flavor is my most favorite flavor as well. I have also been adding maca powder to this recipe. It gives it a chocolate malty flavor and a natural energy boost. :)
  3. Melissa, I've tried your apple cinnamon, gingerbread, and pumpkin pie versions of overnight oats. The Almond Butter Choc. are MY FAVORITE! This is so chocolaty and yummy, I could eat it twice a day! Thank you for a great, healthy, and clean breakfast treat. . . I mean meal! =)
  4. Made this last night, had it this morning it was DELICIOUS! I used rolled oats, and the texture was just perfect. My daughter was spooning it up like she never ate before, I love watching her eat like this and knowing its all good food she's getting.
    1. I can't afford chia seeds (seen prices online) plus they're not available locally. Can I just leave them out?
  5. My friend brought this into work and let me try it. So delicious that I had to ask for the recipe and I don't ever do that!!!! Just made my first batch tonight and I'm so excited for breakfast!
      1. Just wanted to share that I also used oat and rice milk and it worked exceptionally well, especially oat milk as it is naturally slightly sweet.
  6. I have made these a few times and they are so yummy!! I loved them but I got a headache after eating them :-( I don't normally eat oats & was wondering if the oats could cause headaches?
  7. Can you use double flax seed instead of chia seed? Couldn't find the Chia yet; but am headed to a bigger city later this week :) Thanks!
