Chocolate Raspberry OverNight Oats

2013-05-12 20.50.03_small

A few months ago I discovered OverNight Oats (aka, ONOs) from Brittany’s blog.  The basic concept behind ONOs is simple: mix oats with milk of choice and leave in the fridge overnight.  These oats are similar to cold cereal or grits, and I find them delicious!  Added bonus: ONOs keep you full until lunch time!  No mid-morning snacks for this girl.

I started to experiment with different flavors, and I think I have found a winning combination.  My beloved raspberries and chocolate… to die for!  I ate this for breakfast for a week straight when I first discovered this combo!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup of steal cut oats (or old fashioned)

1/2 cup of Almond Breeze unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1 T cocoa powder

1/2 t vanilla extract

1 t chia seeds (optional)

1 t honey (optional)

1/4 cup frozen raspberries

Mix the first 6 ingredients together until combined. Mix in frozen raspberries.  Put in fridge overnight. So simple!

The following morning I topped the concoction with a little extra almond milk to loosen up the oats. This is becoming a favorite for breakfast or desert!

What is your favorite breakfast food?

  1. Yes! Love this variation of “instant oatmeal”. Forgot about it! Used to eat it everyday for a year or so. So much that I was over it for a little while but now I am totally craving it! Really helped me get in breakfast because I am REALLY bad w/skipping bfast but notice such a difference when I do eat it. I used to put my steel cut oats (big bag from Costco) w/ water (milk would have been better) added cream after.. Regular oatmeal seasonings to taste etc.. And of coarse the frozen raspberries (also big bag from Costco) in a micro safe travel bowl and bring it with me on my 16 hour shifts and either nuke it for a couple min before I left and eat right away or just bring it with and heat it whenever, for a couple min, at work. Was Perfect!!! Thanks Jillienne!!

    • When my fridge was working, I ate this everyday. It’s one of my favorite breakfast items! I will post more varieties soon.

  2. I am going in to make this for the morning, been slacking a bit on doing my little bit of healthy eating and my juicing. Tomorrow I start with this for breakfast. I hope I don’t get up in the middle of the night and eat it…lol Thanks for all your ideas, Jilliene, I love them and you too.. <3

  3. OOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

    These were terrific and so so easy.
    I am actually making them again for lunch, but going to try heating them just a bit so they aren’t frozen and hard.
    We will see. Love your recipes!!!!
    Now, GO, GO, have fun on your minication <3
