Brownie Batter Overnight Oats
Is it possible to eat dessert for breakfast? You may be thinking no way, but I’m saying yessssssss way! Today’s breakfast? Brownie batter!
I’m not sure there is anything better than brownie batter, honestly. Yeah, yeah, it has raw egg, blah, blah, blah, whatever. It’s freaking delicious. Totally worth the risk, am I right? But, okay, I guess it’s not appropriate for breakfast. This must be changed!
Take out most of the sugar and add oats and voila! We’ve got a perfectly acceptable breakfast AND it tastes like a bowl of brownie batter! If you’ve never tried overnight oats, I suggest you try them right now. They are so simple, you literally just stir some ingredients together, cover and chill overnight and they are ready for you in the morning!
These Brownie Batter Oats are rich and chocolately, but also healthy. I use plain Greek yogurt, unsweetened almond milk, and sweeten with agave or other natural sweeteners. The worst part is the chocolate chips, but they are a must for me! You can really use whatever kind of milk, yogurt, or sweetener you prefer. Overnight oats are basically impossible to screw up! So, yes, you can eat brownies for breakfast!
- 3/4 cup yogurt (I use 0% fat vanilla or plain Greek yogurt, but any yogurt will do)
- 1/2 unsweented almond milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 cup old fashioned oats (use gf oats for gluten free)
- sweetener to taste (agave, stevia, sugar, etc.)
- 1-2 tablespoon mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
- In a jar or container, whisk together the yogurt, almond milk, vanilla, and the cocoa powder until well-combined. Then, stir in the oats. Sweeten to taste. Cover and chill overnight in the fridge.
- In the morning, remove the lid and stir in the chocolate chips. Can adjust sweetener if needed. Store any leftover oats in the fridge.
