Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Overnight Oats
Yield 1 Serving
It might be the lack of sleep talking, or maybe the fact that I’m still in the newborn haze, but I am in love with these overnight oats lately!
With a baby, not to mention a toddler, plus 4 older kids, I need fast and easy for breakfast. But I also need to get all the nutrients I can for my nursing little man. Oats are great for hormone regulation, energy, and milk production – three things that a new Mom really needs. So, each night I take the 62 seconds (yes, I did time myself!) to make this and then count down until I get to eat it the next morning.
I’ve had so many people ask me to share the recipe, so here it is. Enjoy!
1/2 cup whole oats or steel cut oats (gives it a bit more of a chewy texture)
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp ground flaxseed
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 – 1 Tbsp coconut sugar
1 Tbsp dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
Put all the ingredients in your favorite Mason jar, mix and put in the fridge overnight. In the morning, take it out and eat it. It’s that easy. Make a few at once if you have space in your fridge and boom, there is your whole week’s worth of breakfasts done!
