I'm a work-from-home mom with a supportive, hard-working husband, two toddlers, and a baby on the way. In the business world, I'm a copywriter with a deep background in marketing and SEO. At home, I'm always looking for mom hacks, the best projects and toys for my growing kiddos, and ways to solve everyday mom dilemmas. Whatever I find, I'm sharing on this blog, which is my passion project!

Overnight oats take about 5 minutes to prepare, and they work their magic while you’re sleeping. Wake up in the morning, and breakfast is served with zero prep!

Like most of my go-to breakfasts, I don’t really use a recipe. I just eyeball things and use what I have.

That said, there are a ton of overnight oat recipes online, and you can be really fancy and creative with what you add.

Our favorite is a simple chocolate version.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 TB maple syrup
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp chia seeds

Instructions
 

  • Mix all the ingredients together and let sit in the fridge overnight. Enjoy in the morning!

Notes

Note: This recipe is still liquidy the next morning – the oats are rehydrated but there is still milk there. We like it that way, but if you want all of the liquid to soak up, reduce the whole milk amount by half.

This recipe is SO customizable. You can add fruit or you can swap or remove the sweetener (honey, sugar, mashed banana, etc.). I’ve also tried an “Almond Joy” version where I added some coconut flakes and mini chocolate chips, and that was amazing, too.

Best of all, my kids love this breakfast.
