We met tahini and chocolate in cookies years ago. These overnight oats are like that, just breakfast-fied—and much, much quicker to make. Assemble the night before a busy morning, then grab and go as you're scurrying out the door. —Emma Laperruque

In This Recipe
  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl or jar and stir. Add more milk to reach desired thickness (keeping in mind that it will get thicker as it “sleeps”!). Taste and adjust the maple syrup and salt accordingly. Cover with a lid or plastic wrap. Stick in the fridge and let soak for 8 to 12 hours.

This is delicious and really hearty. I used cocoa nibs, as I was too tired to bother cutting up chocolate. It worked well and made it overall lower in sugar. I'm looking forward to this recipe for many breakfasts. Thank you!

This is so delicious. I heated mine up in the microwave and then added sliced banana. It's decadent and so very warming.

Personally, I'd nuke it, just to warm it up.
