A 21 Day Fix make-ahead breakfast with the indulgent flavors of chocolate and orange. Need I say more?
Hello!! Raise your hand if you want to wake up in the morning to a chocolatey delight without having to do anything at all in the actual morning? I see so many hands raised! Ok, so it’s 6 am here in the AK as I’m writing this and I’m quite possibly delirious, but that’s really beside the point. (I think). The point is, these overnight oats are the bomb dot com, end of story. Well, almost.
Before I get into these oats a bit more, I’d like to share a few photos of our Alaskan adventures with you, because it’s fun 🙂
Ok, so now that we’ve gotten mildly off track, let’s get back to these oats. You guys. These overnight oats are so delicious, they’re like if hot cocoa got together with sweet clementines and had a chocolate-orange candy bar flavored baby. Or something like that.
Anyway, I’ve always loved that flavor combo and it seemed like such a natural fit for some AMAZING, ASTOUNDING, DEATH-DEFYING overnight oats. Wait – scratch that last one. Seriously though, if you haven’t tried overnight oats yet – or maybe if you have, but they had Greek yogurt in them and you weren’t down with that (like me) then you need to try these ASAP!
I love that I can make them ahead, which only takes a few minutes and then I have a no-work breakfast for several days. For me this is really important because I HAVE to eat before I work out or I get nauseous. It’s not fun, people. So the sooner I can eat my breakfast, the sooner I can get my workout in (i.e., the more likely it is that my workout will actually happen), so I don’t really want to be wasting time cooking in the morning if I can help it.
Because of this, I have a few more make-ahead breakfasts in my back pocket – if you’re interested I put some links under the recipe 😉
I hope you guys love these easy oats as much as I do!
If you make this recipe be sure to snap a pic and tag me @thefoodieandthefix or use #thefoodieandthefix on Instagram so I can check it out! It makes me ridiculously happy to see what you guys are making 🙂
