3 Creative, Delicious Ways to Dress Up Overnight Oats


Created in partnership with CocoaVia.

Oats are one of our pantry staples for many reasons—and the many ways to eat delicious overnight oats for breakfast is one of them.

Why roll with oats? They’re filled with fiber and protein and are super satiating, which is exactly what you need in the morning. After digging in, you’ll be full and energized, AKA ready to take on the day.

And just like you can add all kinds of nuts, nut butters, seeds, fruit, and spices to a bowl of hot oatmeal, it’s easy to get creative with the cold, overnight version.

Start with this simple recipe for easy overnight oats and then try one of our three favorite ways to make them super tasty (and even healthier!), below.

3 Ways to Make Delicious Overnight Oats

CocoaVia and Peanut Butter

Chocolate and peanut butter is a flavor combination no one can argue with. This combo takes it a step further, since instead of sugary chocolate chips we use a CocoaVia Sweetened Dark Chocolate stick pack. The powdered supplement delivers the highest concentration of cocoa flavanols—the compounds with all of the health benefits—available in a supplement today. For this one, add both toppings to your oats in the morning, just before eating.

Mango, Coconut, and Macadamia Nut

Oh hey, tropical bliss! Picture yourself under a palm tree while spooning up vitamins, antioxidants, and healthy fats. You can add these toppings to the jar overnight or throw them on in the morning.

Strawberry and Chia Seeds

Put the protein- and omega-3-rich chia seeds in with the oats the night before and they’ll bulk up, adding texture to your bowl. Top with strawberries and enjoy. Or, use frozen berries overnight, and as they defrost, their juices will add flavor to the oats.
