This chocolate chia seed overnight oatmeal is thick, creamy, filling and perfect for busy mornings.



  • 3 tbsp rolled oats (gluten-free if needed)
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup, agave or raw honey, or use stevia for sugar-free oats
  • 1 tbsp nut butter of choice
  • 1 cup almond milk or other plant-based milk of choice


  1. Add all ingredients to a container and shake or stir vigorously.
  2. Set in the fridge overnight.
  3. Alternatively, it can be cooked stovetop until thick and creamy, about 5 minutes.


If you want to increase the protein in this recipe, replace 2 tbsp of the cocoa with 2 tbsp of vegan chocolate protein powder and omit the maple syrup.
