Brownie Batter Overnight Oats

A good for you recipe that tastes like you’re eating dessert for breakfast. 


Good morning!

Last minute change of plans. I had every intention of sharing an awesome feels-so-good stretch routine. Then, I received a very convincing email asking for a short morning specific stretch routine. And, since that very thing is on my to-blog list I decided to go with ooey gooey chocolate goodness today and a stretch routine some time next week. Sound good?

Chocolate yumminess and good for you? Life doesn’t get any better than that!

Make this tonight and have it for breakfast tomorrow. If  you’re a chocolate fan, I promise you’re going to love the gooey goodness of this recipe.

  1. Life really doesn’t get much better than having chocolate for breakfast. Especially when it’s healthy. I like that there is plain yogurt in this to power up the protein content. Wonderful!

  2. Love this picture!! And this looks sooo good! I love creamy oats too

  3. This looks so delicious! I think I need to try it this week with coconut yogurt.

  4. I’ll eat them both warm or cold – it just depends on how I feel that day. Sometimes a warm bowl of oatmeal is exactly what I need 🙂

  5. I looove overnight oats!! i need to buy some more cocoa powder so I can make these! i also like to use coconut yogurt in my overnight oats to make them extra creamy!

  6. This sounds SO amazing! And simple, and with healthy ingredients! I’m in love, can’t wait to try!

  7. This looks heavenly! I am definitely more of a warm oatmeal person, and as for yogurt… Maybe on the side. This is definitely on my “to-make” list. I am getting a little bored with my plain oats and cinnamon.

  8. Jill can I just tell you I am desperately trying to lose the last few extra pounds of baby weight I am carrying, and I am a choco-aholic! This just might suppress my appetite for chocolate! Thanks for sharing! #BloggersPitStop

  9. This looks delicious and I’m all about saving time in the morning! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  10. Found you from the Get It Together Link Up Party! This is so yummy and very easy to make! Would definitely give it a try. Lots of love from Pink Heart String <3

  11. I have yet to try overnight oats. Texture is kind of a big deal for me so I worry that it would be too mushy. I really need to try it and figure it out! This does look yummy!

  12. Holla! You had me at brownie, and then you added oatmeal. WHOA. haha. I have been in love with raw cacao powder lately, but I haven’t used it in this way. Thanks, Lovely! #fitfamlove #thefitdish

    1. Hi Jess, you can’t go wrong with cocoa and oats. Serious goodness in a bowl! Thanks friend. xoxo

    1. Thanks Amy! Have you tried the ONO yet? I’d love to know what you think 🙂

  13. Wow, this looks decadent and sinful, but the ingredients suggest it is healthy! Thanks for sharing this!

  14. Jill, first of all: congratulations on this gorgeous new look of your blog. It looked awesome before, and now even better.
    I made last week a recipe with chocolate that I’ll be sharing soon on the blog. I love chocolate even though I don’t crave for it anymore.
    Have a fabulous day!

    1. Really? Haha! The stretches are coming. I need to find time to take photos and I’ll be ready to share 🙂

  15. This sounds so amazingly delicious!! I even have a sample pack of Skoop B Strong in my cupboard! I think it was meant to be 😀

  16. This looks so delicious and I’ve got Skoop calling to me from the pantry too. Yes to the yogurt!

    1. You might as well use your Skoop for this bowl of goodness 🙂 The yogurt topping is so creamy and good with the chocolate.

    1. Dessert. Breakfast. Brownie Batter ONO is good anytime! Have you tried the recipe? Good isn’t it!

  17. Yummy in my tummy!!! I haven’t been using yogurt in my overnight oats, rather I have been using chia seeds and unsweetened almond milk to get it creamy…Works perfectly! Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe! XOXO

  18. Yeah. I can get right on board with this. Yum.

  19. This looks good! I love chocolate with peanut butter the best. I prefer my oats warm too.

    1. Hi Ivanna, that is one of my favorite flavor combinations! Cold is good with ONO but warm is the best way to this recipe. Thanks.

  20. I just got into overnight oats, like last week, and I love them! I like to make a bigger batch and then reheat each morning so I have a bowl of hot oats ready in a minute! I can’t wait to try this recipe!

  21. YUMMY!! I haven’t been doing oats in the morning, but they are my go to pre-workout snack lately! But to think I can have brownie batter for breakfast… hmmm that’s convincing me to change my routine!!

  22. YUM – delicious recipe and beautiful photos, Jill! Cocoa powder adds such a depth of flavor to oats and yogurt – a healthy way to enjoy some chocolate. Thanks for sharing!

  23. Wow this sounds amazing, and I love that it doesn’t involve any baking – less opportunity for me to mess it up!

  24. These sound fantastic and look so indulgent but I love the fact that they are actually quite healthy!

  25. I’m drooling now! This looks amazing, Jill! 🙂

  26. MMM…These sound amazing! Brownie batter for breakfast? Yes, please!

  27. How about making this in the morning for an after-dinner snack/dessert? Is it too carby too late in the day?

    1. Hi Lola, actually if you make it 2 servings it’s a great snack in the afternoon. It’s great anytime!

  28. Yum! This looks delicious. I’m not a big yogurt person so I woukd say ‘nay’ to the yogurt. And definitely served warm. Thanks for another yummy recipe!

    1. Happy to share Amanda. It’s good with or without the yogurt. Cold is good but warmed is the best way to eat it.

  29. I would be SO FRIGGIN’ excited to wake up to eat these in the AM. More excited than a kid awaiting Santa’s gifts on XMAS morning!
