If you're a chocolate lover like me, you're going to go crazy for these rich, deeply chocolate overnight oats. This is a healthy breakfast that's good enough for dessert but also keeps you satisfied all morning long. The texture is ultra-creamy and spoonable and the flavor is guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth, without sending you for a sugar crash.

Overnight oats are one of my favorite vegan breakfast recipes. They're easy to meal prep and to customize with your favorite flavors, like Banana Peanut Butter or Pumpkin Spice. And this triple chocolate overnight oats recipe just became my new go-to.

How to Make Triple Chocolate Protein Overnight Oats

If you haven't made overnight oats before, you might be surprised by how easy it is to make this creamy and satisfying breakfast. You can prep the oats the night before and wake up to a ready-to-go breakfast.

Ingredient Notes

Here's what you need to make super chocolatey, high-protein overnight oats:

  • Thick-cut rolled oats. Make sure your oats are gluten-free certified if necessary. Quick-cooking oats aren't great because they'll break down easily overnight.
  • Almond milk. Feel free to use your favorite plant-based milk. Oat, hemp or soy milk all work well.
  • Chia seeds. These add fiber and help your oats gel into a creamy texture.
  • Cocoa powder. You can also use cacao powder for extra antioxidants.
  • Protein powder. Use your favorite vegan plant-based protein powder. I love peanut butter chocolate-flavored protein powder.
  • Agave. You can use maple syrup, honey (if not vegan) or bee-free vegan honey if you prefer.
  • Vanilla. For a touch of warming vanilla flavor.
  • Cinnamon. I like to add a pinch of spice to my oats.
  • Dark chocolate. Vegan chocolate is dairy-free, look for a vegan-certified brand to be sure.

Toppings for Chocolate Overnight Oats

While the overnight oats have plenty of decadent flavor, I like to add a few toppings to my breakfast for crunch and texture.

Since you're already eating chocolate for breakfast, why not add a little more? A drizzle of melted vegan chocolate really brings these oats over the top. You can melt the chocolate on the stove or in the microwave. See the notes section below for how I do it.

Or try these other delicious topping ideas:

  • Sliced bananas
  • Chocolate chunks or chips
  • Caramel sauce
  • Dairy-free yogurt
  • Granola
  • Fresh berries
  • Chopped nuts or seeds

  • STORAGE: Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Perfect for meal prep for the week!
  • SWEETENER: Instead of Agave, you can simply use pure maple syrup or mashed bananas. 
  • MILK: You can use your favorite plant-based milk, whether Soy, Oat, Coconut, Flax milk, etc.
  • MELTED CHOCOLATE: In a small saucepan over low-heat, add ¼ cup vegan chopped  chocolate or chocolate chips and 2 Tbsps Almond milk, whisking constantly until fully melted and smooth. Once melted, remove from heat. Let cool slightly, about a minute or so before adding it to recipe.
  • COCOA POWDER: Instead of organic cocoa powder you can also use cacao powder.
