Overnight Chocolate Oatmeal

Overnight breakfast has become an obsession of mine. Mornings are always frantic, and as a result, too often hungry. Prepping breakfast the night before takes about 5 minutes and makes mornings so much more pleasant – not to mention delicious.

This is my favorite recipe so far. Like many of us, I’m a chocoholic, so this cuts my sweet tooth with hardly any sugar and no starches.

Amounts will vary depending on how many servings you want to make. The amounts below are for a single (large) serving.

Whisk 1/4 cup steel cut oats with 3/4 cup of cold water, then whisk in 1/8 cup of powdered milk (bonus points for goat’s milk, which is deliciously creamy!) and 1 heaping tablespoon of cocoa powder. Add in 2 tablespoons of honey or maple syrup, and another tablespoon of chia seeds or flax seeds if you have them (these are a great source of protein and good omega-3 fatty acids).

I like to toss a little frozen fruit on top to finish it off – raspberries or blueberries are delicious.
