Chocolate Overnight Oats

Who misses chocolate? I sure don’t – I have been able to find ways to get my chocolate fix without dealing with milk chocolate or other chocolate products that do not contain animal by-products.

For breakfast – Chocolate Overnight Oats give me a chocolaty good kick to start my day.

This recipe is for 1 container (I use mason jars .. but Tupperware would work, anything with a lid that seals on).

CHOCOLATE OVERNIGHT OATS

A recipe by Willowbrook Farms Animal Sanctuary President, Cris Porter

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup dry oats, old fashioned style
  • 1 Tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1 Tablespoon agave syrup (could use maple syrup or honey* as substitute)
  • 1 Tablespoon cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1/2 banana

Instructions:

  1. Smash the banana smooth.
  2. Place all the ingredients into a container that can be sealed. I personally use a mason jar.
  3. Seal the jar and shake it for approximately 1 minute. Cocoa powder clumps – this will ensure you don’t eat a ball of cocoa powder (and I assure you, it does not taste good when you do).
  4. Place the jar into the refrigerator over night or for at least 4-5 hours. The longer you let them sit, the more the chocolate sweetens and integrates into the oats.

To eat: enjoy them straight out of the fridge cold OR heat in the microwave.

*If using honey, this will make the recipe plant-based and not vegan.
