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 use 1/4 C. for steel cut and 1/2 C. for roll oats, as per the serving size listed on the package, and I use diluted coconut milk. Yummy!
  2. I have only tried these overnight oats and I must say they are delicious. I am new to whole foods and I love this for breakfast. I use raw honey instead of the date which I like better. Thank you for all of your awesome recipes!
  3. I've made this three times already. Delicious and a great idea for when I haven't made a batch of oatmeal ahead of time. I've used cashew butter (left over from the pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe!) and peanut butter. It is easily warmed in the microwave. Yum! Thanks for the great recipe!
  4. I'm tired of eating wholemeal bread. I'm so happy to find such healthy alternative for breakfast. Do you need to bake the oat first?
  5. I just ate this for breakfast and it was delicious! I added sliced strawberries and some chopped nuts. Now I'm off to cross-country ski!
