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.

Chocolate Coconut Overnight Oats

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.

Chocolate Coconut Overnight Oats

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?!).

    This was our 2nd time trying an overnight oats recipe (first one was with peaches & yogurt – mmm!!!). This recipe has great flavor, but I’m wondering if 2 things I did different are what caused it to be quite runny yet come morning. (Altho it seems there should be more oats in it for the amount of liquid, as usually you want it 1:2 (oats:liquid).)
    Anyway, I used regular milk instead of coconut milk (would that make it runnier?) and no chia seeds (I can imagine chia seeds thickening it up a little, but would 2 T be that much of a diff?).

    • The consistency differs depending on the types of oats your use. Also, the chia seeds serve as a thickening agent and absorb liquid so maybe that’s the reason why it was runnier than expected! 😉

    This looks really good. I like that you can start it the night before so it is ready when you get up. That is a huge plus for busy mornings.

    I’ve been wanting to do the overnight oats for so long and I’m glad I waited for your chocolate coconut version. And the fact that you can eat them hot or cold seals the deal. I’m making these ASAP.

    I really like that these are make ahead so that you can get the prep done the night before a busy morning. It is such a great thing that you can enjoy a delicious breakfast on a busy morning without having to find time to make it during the morning rush.

    I love that you can eat these oats hot or cold. That way I don’t have to worry about my youngest trying to heat them up for breakfast when she gets up before me!

    • Exactly! I get up an hour before my daughter and just set these out on the counter so they are slightly at room temperature. No heating required.

  • Robin Rue 5 years ago

    Those sound super tasty. My husband would absolutely love them. I need to make these for him 🙂
