Chocolate Overnight Oats – 2 Ways!

When you’re as busy as I am, especially heading into a new school semester, overnight oats are the perfect on-the-go breakfast. You can make them in less than 10 minutes the night before and in the morning you just grab them on your way out. I try to save time anywhere I can – yet I am still always 5-10 minutes late for everything (I’m working on that). I love chocolate, so I usually try to make chocolate-based oats, which ends up tasting like a dessert for breakfast! Here I am sharing my go-to recipe, which can be adapted to fit any chocolate-y craving. My favorites are chocolate, coconut, and almond and chocolate, banana, and peanut butter!
