Somewhat of a recent phenomenon, overnight oatmeal makes a great grab ‘n go breakfast.
Ultra creamy and incredibly easy to whip up, overnight oatmeal is a great way to ensure a
healthful breakfast whether you’re always on the go or frequently running late.
This cookie-inspired oatmeal is a bit decadent thanks to the dark chocolate. If you’re trying to
cut out sugar or eat healthier, this oatmeal is just as delicious without the chocolate.
Makes 2 servings
Takes 5 minutes + chilling
⅔ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
⅔ cup unsweetened almond milk
⅓ cup plain Greek yogurt
¼ cup raisins (optional)
2 tablespoons chopped dark chocolate + more for serving
2 tablespoons peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
1 tablespoons pure maple syrup + more for serving
2 teaspoons flax seeds
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Chopped peanuts for serving (optional)
1. In a jar or bowl thoroughly combine oats, almond milk, yogurt, raisins, chocolate chips, peanut
butter, maple syrup, flax seeds, and vanilla extract.
2. Cover oatmeal and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
3. Divide oatmeal between two serving dishes, top with additional chocolate, maple syrup, and
peanuts, if desired.
Overnight oats are designed to be an on-the-go breakfast and meant to be eaten cold.
However, if you aren’t so sure about “cold” oatmeal, you can heat the soaked oats in the
microwave for about 45 seconds on high until heated through.
