Overnight oats are wonderful for meal-prep and you can absolutely make them a few days ahead.

Prep Time 5 mins
Servings 1 serving


  • 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.

    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
