If you don’t have a weekly Friday ritual, consider making these chocolate avocado overnight oats yours—your Friday mornings will be that much better because of them. They are creamy, easy to make, naturally sweetened, and contain less than a dozen ingredients.
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: Gluten Free, Vegan, Dairy Free
Serves: 1
  • ½ cup rolled oats (ensure certified gf for gluten free eaters)
  • ½ banana, sliced
  • ¼ avocado, sliced
  • ½ cup nut milk (I used almond milk)
  • 1 Tbsp. cacao powder (or sub cocoa powder)*
  • 1 Tbsp. cacao nibs (or semi-sweet chocolate chips)
  • 1 tsp honey (or other natural sweetener-optional)
  1. Add all ingredients to the a quart-sized mason jar. Mix and mash (a fork works well to mash the banana and avocado). Refrigerate overnight (or at least 3 hours). Enjoy warm (microwaved for 1-2 minutes) or cold—I prefer these overnight oats warm, though they are not bad cold.

**Collagen Peptides are a flavorless source of extra protein. Choose a high-quality, brand.

***I add riced cauliflower when I’m feeling like getting extra veggies in. Only add when you’re planning on microwaving and eating warm. You can find riced cauliflower in most grocery stores, or you can make your own in a food processor.
