Healthy Chocolate Almond Butter Overnight Oats

A ridiculously easy to make breakfast idea for one, ready to go in the fridge and great as snack anytime. It is Rich, Thick, Creamy, Decadent, Healthy with vegan, dairy free and gluten free options.

Topping ideas

  1. Sliced Banana
  2. Mini dark chocolate chips (or use crushed regular dark chocolate chips) —> Double chocolate
  3. Toasted chopped nuts like almonds or hazelnuts.
  4. Sweetened shredded coconut.
  5. More almond butter
  6. Sliced strawberries

What milk to use?

Regular whole or 2% milk, almond, cashew or oat milk are all great options. However, we recommend staying away from coconut milk, since it alters the taste slightly when combined with nut butter.

Can you use chocolate milk?

We highly recommend not to! Store bought chocolate flavored milk contains sweeteners, color, additives and artificial ingredients. So, it not only affects the taste, but also makes it not very healthy recipe. However, if you choose to use, then make sure to reduce the cocoa powder.

Is this recipe thick without yogurt?

Absolutely! Chia seeds, oats, almond butter and cocoa powder helps in making this a thick and creamy recipe.

Tips for success

Oats – Use only old fashioned or rolled variety.

Quick cooking oats results in a less creamy oatmeal, but reduce the milk by 1 to 2 tablespoons.

Steel cut oats results in a more chewier oatmeal. Make sure to increase milk by 2 tablespoons.

Instant oats is highly processed and hence not recommended.

Simply double the recipe to make it for two.

Can I make it vegan?

Replace almond milk instead of regular and maple syrup instead of honey.

Can I make it Dairy Free?

Use plant based milk like almond, oat or cashew milk.

Can I make it gluten free?

Use gluten free Oats.
