I’m an admitted Cafe Mocha addict. As a chocolate lover (and a mom), it just doesn’t get any better. Chocolate and coffee together in these overnight oats? Yes, please! So when deciding my newest recipe flavors I knew exactly where I wanted to go. What if I could have chocolate, coffee and breakfast all together in one mug and what if I could make that breakfast the night before and have it ready to go in the morning? It would save me a ton of time and maybe I would have time to brush my hair before taking my daughter to school!
Introducing Cafe Mocha Overnight Oats! If you are unfamiliar with overnight oats it’s basically oats for lazy people.
You soak the oats in all of the ingredients overnight and wake to a perfectly creamy and delicious oatmeal that feels sort of…gourmet! I like them because you get to control what goes into your oatmeal as well (as opposed to those little packets you buy at the store), and you can buy your oatmeal in bulk, saving you money!
If you don’t like coffee or you want to make these for your kids just leave out the coffee and add 1/4 cup of almond milk (to equal 1 cup overall).
