These chocolate berry overnight oats are delicious, filling and satisfying. There is very little work to them as you let them sit in the refrigerator overnight.
One of the things I love about this recipe is it takes around 5 minutes to put together before you let it rest overnight in the refrigerator.
The next morning you take it out and layer it with the berries. It’s so delicious, pretty and satisfying.
I love eating oatmeal in the morning and I usually alternate between this recipe and cooked oatmeal. What about you?
How to make chocolate berry overnight oats
Get a 2 cup ball jar.
Gather the ingredients – old fashioned rolled oats (don’t use instant), cocoa powder, protein powder (I use unflavored), yogurt and milk.
Here’s a fun fact, instead of yogurt, you can replace it with kefir. My friend Helen has a great post on how to make milk kefir.
Place the oats, protein powder and cocoa powder in the ball jar.
Add yogurt and milk.
Take a spoon and stir the ingredients together.
It’s okay that the ball jar will get messy. Don’t worry, you will transfer the overnight oats to another jar in the morning when you’re ready to layer the fruit in it.
Cap the jar and put it in the refrigerator overnight.
Fast forward around 12 hours.
Time to prepare the fruit.
Get out whatever fruit you’d like to use. I’m using raspberries, blueberries and strawberries.
Wash and rinse the fruit well and get a clean Ball jar.
Give the oats a stir.
Spoon half of the overnight oats into the clean jar and place half of the berries on top.
Spoon the rest of the chocolate overnight oats on top of the berries.
Peek a boo, berries!
Add the rest of the berries on top and sprinkle some nuts on top of that. (The nuts are optional.)
We are ready to eat, everyone.
I hope you enjoyed this chocolate berry overnight oats recipe.
