Chocolate Cranberry Overnight Oats

Last updated on October 18th, 2020 at 02:13 pm

I am a huge oatmeal fan. Oatmeal for breakfast or lunch is a regular staple for me. It’s super easy to throw together and keeps me full for hours. The only problem? During the summer months, I can’t bring myself to eat anything overly warm for breakfast. Overnight oats are my go to during the warmer months, and I love that I can throw everything together the night before and just grab and go in the mornings. Chocolate Cranberry Overnight Oats // The Krystal Diaries I actually think overnight oats have a different texture than warm oatmeal. It’s creamier, thicker, and tastier in my opinion. I can see myself having overnight oats well into the chillier months ahead. There are so many overnight oat recipes out there but chocolate cranberry overnight oats has been my favorite so far. It’s super simple to put together, and each ingredient is things I normally have in my pantry. Chocolate Cranberry Overnight Oats // The Krystal Diaries

    Overnight oats are so convenient! It is just so hard to get up early some days to make breakfast. Love the idea of cranberries plus chocolate!

    I have never heard of overnight oats before- what a cool concept. Usually my meals consist of whatever the little guy decides he doesn’t want… soggy cheerios, bites of toast, you know, the usual mommy-fare. I’d love to have something ready to go as I’m chasing him around the house! Thank you!

    I love overnight oats and this sounds like such a yummy recipe! I have only done blueberry and apple/cinnamon. This is on my list next!

    Totally agree with you about the texture of overnight oats. They seem chewier (which I actually love)! This is a great combo — who doesn’t love chocolate?! And for breakfast!! 🙂

    This sounds so yummy. Looks good. You have almond milk and milk mentioned in your ingredients, but you don’t mention when to add the milk in the directions. Not sure if this is an error, but was wondering if your ratio is 1:2 or 1;4. 🙂

      Step 2 is when you add the milk to the oats 🙂
