  • 16-ounce mason jars


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1-2 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cacao nibs optional


  • Mix the rolled oats, cacao, and chia seeds into a 16-ounce mason jar. Give it a couple of stirs until the cacao powder is mixed with the other ingredients.
  • Add the Vanilla Greek Yogurt and unsweetened coconut milk and stir until chocolatey and the oats are covered in liquid.
  • Tightly place the lid on and refrigerate overnight, preferably for 6 – 8 hours.
  • Remove the lid, add the pure maple syrup and give the oats a couple of stirs. Give the oats a taste and stir more maple syrup if you need more sweetness. The oats might be a little thick, so if you want to loosen them up, stir in a splash of milk until you get a creamy texture.
  • Sprinkle with cacao nibs and serve.


Meal prep for the week. You can make this chocolate overnight oats recipe with Greek yogurt up to 5 days ahead of time. Assemble the ingredients into mason jars and place them in the fridge. Keep in mind that the longer the oatmeal sits, the thicker it will get, so you'll likely need to add a few splashes of milk to get that creamy consistency.
For the freezer. Assemble the dry ingredients into freezer bags and freeze for up to 6 months. The night before, dump the ingredients into a mason jar and add the liquid. Give it a couple of stirs, tightly place the lid on, and put it into the refrigerator. In the morning, stir the maple syrup and extra liquid if needed.
