This easy make-ahead breakfast is your perfect excuse to eat chocolate first thing in the morning. Serve with cacao nibs, coconut, nuts, or whatever toppings you prefer! —Lisa @ Healthy Nibbles & Bits

Test Kitchen Notes

Easy. Portable. Healthy. Chocolate. What more can you ask for in a breakfast that gets you out the door on a busy morning? Vary the ingredients for everyone in the family -- add other berries, make it with or without chocolate, throw in different nuts and toppings. This will become a staple for me, even on the mornings when I'm not in a hurry to leave the house. —Frances

What You'll Need
  • 1/3 cup oatmeal
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar (more if necessary)
  • 3 large strawberries, sliced
  1. Mix together all the ingredients, except for strawberries.
  2. Place one third of the oatmeal mixture into a jar or other airtight container, then top with half of the strawberry slices. Add another layer of the oatmeal mixture, then top with the remaining strawberry slices. Top with the rest of the oatmeal mixture.
  3. Refrigerate overnight -- your oatmeal will be ready to enjoy the next morning!

Trying to get some healthier and tasty meals so i can loose some weight and also to feed my son. This looks really good. Could you tell me when you make oatmeal overnight with out cooking, what is the texture like?

Hi MarZig, the oats will be softened as the oats absorb all the moisture from the milk and yogurt. It will be a thick texture but not as mushy as cooked oatmeal. Hope this helps!

Do you use already cooked oatmeal? Or rolled oats?
Lisa @. April 11, 2014
I used rolled oats (uncooked).

Sorry, that was a typo on my part, I meant unsweetened almond milk. I have edited it now. Thanks for bringing this to my attention!

What is the difference between oatmeal and unsweetened oatmeal?
