My decadent chocolate overnight oats recipe

If you're looking for a delicious, filling breakfast treat, you can't go wrong with overnight oats. Not only is this chocolate overnight oats recipe packed with goodness, it's also really decadent, and whenever I make it, I can't believe it's healthy! 

I've used my new Raw Cacao Super Scoop in this recipe to add even more healthy ingredients, as Super Scoop  contains a whopping 50 organic fruit and veg extracts. And, I must admit the Raw Cacao flavour is delicious with oats. 

Just a word on oats - it's a fabulous grain to have for breakfast because it's:

  • High in fibre
  • Low in saturated fat
  • A slow-release carbohydrate - so no sugar spikes 
  • Versatile and easy to cook
If I have a hard exercise session planned or a busy day of meetings, I know that a breakfast containing oats will sustain me throughout the day.
