This is an Overnight Chocolate Chia Oats breakfast bowl recipe that’s designed to be a healthy, dairy-free meal to satisfy early morning chocolate cravings. It is based on rolled oats with cocoa powder, a healthy dose of chia seeds, and full-fat coconut milk for a rich texture. The chocolatey taste is awesome!
If this all sounds too rich for breakfast, then you can always enjoy this for a snack or dessert!
The easiest way to make it is to double or triple the recipe and pour into small jars for a quick and easy portable breakfast option in the mornings, but it can also be served hot so that you can still enjoy it on those chilly winter mornings.
