They are packed with fiber, and protein, and a bowl of these overnight oats will keep you going all day long, which has been essential for these crazy work days now that we opened our food truck!

Ingredients for Chocolate Chia Overnight Oats

The base ingredients for this overnight oats variation is very similar to our classic overnight oats. Here’s what you need:

To assemble, all you really have to do is mix everything together in a bowl, let it sit for at least 2 hours, but ideally overnight in the fridge.

Make them Blended Overnight Oats!

If you love a smooth and creamy overnight oats recipe, then blended overnight oats are for you.

  1. Add all of the ingredients into a high-speed blender.
  2. Blend on high for about a minute. This will pulverize the oats and make them super creamy.
  3. Transfer the overnight oats into an airtight container and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  4. In the morning, you can eat as-is, or add a splash of milk to thin things out a bit.

It was delicious! I didn’t add any yogurt and use honey over vanilla. It was like a dessert for breakfast!

(there’s 69 reviews, and I’m basically messing it up, but whatever)
I halved the recipe so I could make one for myself(the card says it serves two.) I halved everything else, but then forgot to halve the yogurt and mixed it in. Oops! I only noticed that is was a bit liquid-y after I had mixed it in. Will it still turn out well?
Anyways, it was quick and easy to prepare. I’m doing it so I can have a quick breakfast before school, so can I reheat it? It’ s awfully cold where I live.

This is such a great recipe. I use non-dairy yogurt, and I love to add a half teaspoon of cinnamon and fresh blueberries to top it off. So yummy!

Omg! Since the cocoa wasn’t actually cooked I was skeptical whether it’d mix well or not. But wow this tastes sooo good. I added half a tablespoon of Nutella as an additional treat. Thank you!
