Recipe: Oatmeal Cookie Overnight Oats

by JJ Virgin on November 13, 2017

Overnight oats are such a convenient, easy way to have breakfast waiting in the morning! This version includes plenty of clean, lean protein, healthy fats, and fiber – all the nutrition you need for an amazing start to your day.

Best of all, it tastes JUST like an oatmeal cookie. Pretty impressive, considering it doesn’t contain any gluten, dairy, eggs, or added sugar!

If you’re an oatmeal cookie fan, you’ll probably notice this recipe calls for dark chocolate chunks, not raisins. That’s because raisins are really just tiny fructose nuggets – one little box of raisins has a whopping 25 grams of sugar! I’m going for health-boosting dark chocolate every time…

I recommend making a big batch of these oats because, once you share a spoonful, everyone’s going to want their own jar. And if you’re hooked on overnight oats, I bet you’ll love our Trio of Overnight Oats Recipes, too… (There’s Triple Chocolate Blueberry, Strawberries and Cream, and Cinnamon Almond. Yum!)
