Overnight oats are the answer to a busy mom’s no-fuss breakfast dream come true. They can be prepped in the evening and served in the morning-no fuss, no mess, no baking required.
These decadent chocolate coconut overnight oats are a sweet morning treat that the kids that you can feel good about feeding them since they’re made with all-natural, wholesome ingredients.
These chocolate coconut overnight oats are by far one of the easiest breakfasts to prepare and one of the most decadent and delicious. The kids devour these, hot or cold, and I love that although these oats are super rich and decadent, they are also made with wholesome ingredients!
I always stock my fridge or freezer with a variety of breakfast food options for the family. These ready-made meals ensure an effortless breakfast during the crazy morning rush.
Simply heat the oats in the microwave for a minute or so or enjoy them chilled, right from the fridge. There you have it; a quick, stress-free breakfast that’s delicious and nutritious for the family. No more resorting to that box of sugary cereal or other prepackaged food for a quick a breakfast option.
I managed to keep these overnight oats light and healthy by using gluten-free oats, dark cocoa powder, omega 3-rich chia seeds, dairy-free milk, pure maple syrup and unsweetened coconut flakes.
Essentially, the only decadent element in these oats are the chocolate chips-and they are completely avoidable if you simply omit them (but why would you do that?!).
