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.

Do you warm it in the microwave in the morning?

Oh man…I would take chocolate in my oats ANY day! Your version of overnight oats looks so mouthwatering! I’m going to be trying the recipe ASAP!

What are the fat grams for your recipe? I’m excited to try this!

Hi- I am so excited to try your recipes. It has been nearly a year since I have started to work out and eat healthier and in the year I haven’t come across too many healthy recipes.

Quick question: Can I heat these recipes up?

YAY! Yes you can totally heat these up. But, you don’t need to and most people eat them cold!

Never in my life would I ever consume a regular bowl of oatmeal–it’s just not my thing, doesn’t appeal to my palette in the least. But needing an easy on-the-go breakfast option in the mornings–and honestly just tempted by the many delicious-looking photos of these chocolately delights–I’ve given some overnight oats recipes a try. I tried to like some of these concoctions, I really did, but most of them I just ended up adding heaping scoops of warmed peanut butter to mask the mediocre taste of mushy oats mixed with lumpy mashed bananas. Until now. I kid you not, these oats are phenomenal, so creamy and chocolately. I was a little concerned when I read to eat cold as I’d always warmed up previous recipes, but, man, my first bite immediately put that concern to rest. I used cacao instead of cocoa, and since I didn’t have any vanilla extract on hand, I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk instead of unflavored. I do think the Greek yogurt makes all the difference. This is a real treat for any chocolate lover–for breakfast, dessert or any time you need to feel full and satisfied! Thank you so much for this phenomenal find!!! 🙂

I haven’t tried that, but I think it would work!

I have strawberries and cherries in the fridge…can’t wait to make this recipe again! I made it years ago when you first posted it; can’t wait to try it again!

I used unsweetened cocoa powder because it didn’t specify and it was bitter- not sweet at all. Can you specify what kind of cocoa powder? My powder was not expired and I am 100% sure I added all of the ingredients. Thanks!
