A double-chocolate, brownie flavored batch of overnight oats. These take minutes to prepare and taste so good it will be like eating dessert for breakfast.
These overnight oats have actual brownie mix in them. When I say brownie batter – I’m not kidding you!
But two things right off the bat – first off I made the brownies from the mix after removing some for these oats and it still worked perfectly. So do not fear that using some brownie mix for these oats will leave you will an un-usable brownie mix. And second, the brownie mix can be substituted for something else if you don’t want em in your oats.
I said that I was making the brownies for testing purpose (to test if it still made the perfect brownies with a tablespoon removed), but really, it was just so I could eat a batch of brownies allll by myself. Please tell me I’m not the only brownie addict.
Okay, but in all honestly, I actually made the brownies for part of the babe’s birthday cake. It turned out to be the head of the Robot on the cake and it was great with some of the mix missing! Although eating a whole pan of brownies is totally on my bucket list. I’d just need to hide them from the hubby.
However, these brownie batter overnight oats are alllll mine. The hubs does not like chocolate in his oatmeal. Which, if you ask me, is one very tragic fact. Me? If I can have chocolate and call it a breakfast I am so in love with that. Evidenced here. and here. and here.
With how easy these oats are to make (seriously talking less than 10 minutes!) what excuse is there to not have chocolate for breakfast? Especially chocolate in brownie form!
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup almond milk, or sub another milk
- 1/2 teaspoon truvia, or sub another sweetener
- 1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoons dry brownie mix (or additional 1 teaspoon cocoa powder)
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- Optional: small handful of miniature chocolate chips
- In a small bowl, whisk together the applesauce, vanilla, milk, truvia, cocoa powder, and dry brownie mix until combined.
- Stir in the oats.
- Place into a tighly re-sealable jar or tupperware in the fridge overnight.
- In the morning, top with miniature chocolate chips and stir throughout. This is optional but makes these "double-chocolate." For a healthier option, you could use dark chocolate chips.
- I enjoy these oats cold, but if desired you can put them in the microwave for about 30 or so seconds.
