5-Ingredient Overnight Chocolate Oats

  • Total Time: 3 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


Units Scale
  • 2 cup milk
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 3 tbsp cacao

  1. Whack all the ingredients together in a large air-tight container. Stir and let it stand overnight. Hungry now? Just allow 5-10 minutes so the chia seeds can absorb the liquid then enjoy.


Here’s a quick and healthy breakfast recipe for chocolate overnight oats with only 5 ingredients. Skip hard-to-find superfoods. It’s a great meal prep recipe to make ahead of a busy week! All you need is milk, oats, chia seeds, cacao and maple syrup to create this quick and easy breakfast idea.
  • Use whichever milk your body likes. I use dairy.
  • Ingredient swaps: If you don’t have maple syrup -> use honey. If you don’t have cacao -> use cocoa powder. If you don’t have chia seeds -> Use another seed you love like flax seeds.
  • You can leave it overnight or eat after 5-10 minutes in the fridge.
  • Store in an air-tight container in the fridge. It should last for a few days.
  • Serve with peanut butter if you like.
  • Prep Time: 3 mins
