Breakfast that tastes like dessert. These are my healthier chocolate fudge overnight oats that taste like dessert. My overnight oat recipes have been a huge hit on social media so I hope you give them a try. This recipe makes one portion, but feel free to adjust. Overnight oats are wonderful for meal-prep and you can absolutely make them a few days ahead. These are meant to be eaten cold, but if you want to warm them up with some extra milk, you are more than welcome to.

Servings: 1 serving
Author: The Modern Nonna
Prep Time: 5 minutes


  • ½ cup rolled oats , I use quick cooking but any rolled oats work
  • 1/2-1 tablespoon maple syrup , honey or agave work as well
  • 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa or cacao powder
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk, or any you love


  • Add all of the ingredients to a mason jar and stir well. Use a bowl if you don’t have a mason jar.
  • Give it a really good stir and refrigerate for a minimum of 3 hours or overnight.
  • Feel free to prep ahead and enjoy.



Protein powder is optional but you will probably need a touch more milk.
I added shaved dark chocolate on top for presentation but you can also add some cacao nibs as well.
Feel free to improvise and make this recipe to taste.
Minimum of 3 hours in the fridge or even overnight, the oats will last for 3-5 days in the fridge so you can prep ahead.
I don’t like to count calories as different brands hold different values but these were 250 calories total.
You can enjoy them cold which is what I do or heat them up but you might need a touch more milk if you do.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…

    1. Hi Lydia, that’s a very personal question, depending on your diet. I like this dish because it has fiber, a bit of protein, and satisfies my sweet tooth without a ton of sugar.

  1. 5 stars
    Absolutely delicious flavor. Mine were a little runnier than yours which might have been careless measuring. I also added just a slash of vanilla.
    Thanks for a great recipe.

  2. 5 stars
    This is an excellent and super easy recipe – I’ve made it 3 times now for my husband and me & we love it! I make 4 servings at a time in a mason jar and it’s great for busy mornings. Thank you for this great recipe!

    This so great! I eat this as snack, I found pretty 8oz jar.
    I orepare a few at a time and they last almost a week in the fridge.
    Or even have all the dry ingredients mixed and add milk a few hours before serving.
    I am pre-diabetic and love chocolate but sugar is not welcome in my body…
    Sometime if I have a craving I only eat a couple of spoonful!
    Thank you
