Chocolate almond butter overnight oats
Are you on the bandwagon of overnight oats yet? If you are not I suggest you try this chocolate almond butter overnight oats. Super easy as you can see gluten free and vegan.
Surely you have seen many of the other overnight oat recipes I have made in the past but never a chocolate one until today. It is truly extremely easy to make and you can have breakfast ready for the entire week in a mere 5 minutes. You can even take this chocolate almond butter overnight oats with you and place them on ball jars and have on the go.
I have seen many chocolate peanut butter overnight oat versions but I am starting to use almond butter a lot more. Surely it is more expensive but I like it better. You can use peanut butter too, which ever you like best. I also tend to add chocolate protein powder to kick the protein content up a bit since that is what my husband likes to have for breakfast before going to the gym.
I actually love having this chocolate almond butter overnight oats in the morning or after working out. It has quite a bit of protein and fiber and it is not too sweet. It can be a great choice for a snack and eat any time through the day really!
For the milk of choice I used Silk Original Soymilk. No other dairy-free milk brand gives you more protein! With 8 grams of heart-healthy, plant-powered protein and a smooth delicious taste, Silk Original Soymilk gives you plenty to love. And because Silk is plant-based, it’s naturally low in saturated fat and has no cholesterol!

One portion is not gonna enough for me :-)) This looks super!
I love overnight oats and chocolate to start the day for the win! I will be making a version of these. Yum!
Overnight oats are the best! I have to make this recipe. Pinning it for later ;-)
These were so good, I had the bit that didn’t fit my fridge-bowls right away and it was awesome. This will definitely become a breakfast staple.
I was eating overnight oats for MONTHS and then I stopped…I am not craving them! Love love love this chocolate almond butter version you have here, I always went with peanut butter, banana and berries (habit). I should change it up! Looks so good!
I ran this recipe through the calorie & macro calculator at MyFitnessPal and even after using light soy milk and removing the cocoa nibs, maple syrup, and protein powder, I came up with 364 calories per serving (6 servings per recipe). Your original recipe with no changes clocks in at 523 calories per serving. Can you tell me how you possibly got the calorie count so low on your nutrition facts? :( This looks SO TASTY but I don’t usually budget for 500+ calories for breakfast……
I actually used calorie count for this. The recipe is for 8 servings instead of 6 so I will change that. The recipe w/ the ingredients listed (except the optional protein powder) gives the label above. I am not sure why there is such a discrepancy w/ yours!
Can you freeze these?
Yes you can :-)
Maybe it’s because I used almond milk, but the ratio was wayyy off, basically soup (nothing like the picture). Going to try it again tomorrow with a 1:1 ratio of oats-to-milk and hopefully that works!
That shouldn’t have matter. Try a little bit less liquid or more oats to get a thicker consistency. I hope you like them!!
So if it’s 8 servings, is a half cup a serving or a full cup?
1 cup :-)
I just made some overnight oats with pureed cashews and was rather pleased by this agreeable way of getting some nuts in my diet (I’m not a big fan of just eating nuts…), so I figured this would be a good follow-up. I broke the ingredients down into individual servings based on 1/2 cup of oats and was rather shocked by that resulting in a whole cup of milk. I’ve never made oats with that much milk. I figured this just made runnier oats. But then I got to thinking about the ingredients… The aforementioned cashews made those oats insanely thick, and I could only assume the almond butter would do the same here. Then there was the protein powder. And the TWO TABLESPOONS of chia. So I went with the whole cup (I just barely didn’t have enough… I had to top off with about a teaspoon of water), and boy am I glad I did. The oats are a perfect, thick, decadent mass of almost-chia-pudding! The cacao nibs are a crown for this textural feast. This might become my go-to for a while… Though I will have to get more nibs if it does. Thank you so much for the recipe!
