  • 1 heaping tablespoon creamy almond butter (See Note 1)
  • 1/3 cup (74g) honey vanilla Greek yogurt (we love Greek Gods honey vanilla)
  • 2/3 cup (156g) chocolate almond milk (See Note 2)
  • 1/2 cup (55g) old-fashioned oats
  • 2 tablespoons Dutch-process cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (See Note 3)
  • Optional: mini dark chocolate chips


  • PREP THE OATS: In a small bowl, jar, or plastic container, combine the almond butter, vanilla yogurt, chocolate milk, old fashioned oats, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, salt, and maple syrup.
  • STIR: Stir until all ingredients are well incorporated. Taste the mixture and add any additional maple syrup if desired.
  • CHILL: Cover the container and refrigerate overnight or until sufficiently cooled and thickened. (Sometimes I'll even make them in the morning, get ready, and then go eat them -- they are great even after only 30 minutes in the fridge.)
  • OPTIONALLY TOP: Once ready to serve, top oats with miniature chocolate chips if desired.



As written, these overnight oats are intended to be quite creamy. If you prefer them  thicker, add a few tablespoons of additional oats and/or 1-2 tablespoons chia seeds.
Note 1: Almond butter: Use an almond butter that you enjoy eating straight out of the jar. We like using an almond butter made with slow roasted almonds and sea salt. I find peanut butter overpowers the flavors in these oats making them taste more like a peanut butter cup than brownies, so I don't recommend using peanut butter.
Note 2: Milk: We love chocolate almond milk, but dairy chocolate milk  also works. A vanilla unsweetened almond milk also works for a slightly less chocolate-y overnight oatmeal.
Note 3: Sweetener: Scale the sweetener up or down to personal preference -- you may not even want any all! One tablespoon maple syrup is what we prefer; use 2 tablespoons for more sweetness. Alternatively, use 1/4 teaspoon liquid stevia drops for a zero-calorie sweetener.
