Chocolate Overnight Oats 

Overnight oats are a great way to meal prep ahead of time. They are an excellent source of whole grains, fiber, and protein to help keep you satisfied. Start with 1/2 cup of milk or milk alternative. If you prefer a thicker or thinner final product, just adjust your amount of liquid accordingly.

These Chocolate Overnight Oats have a rich and creamy chocolate flavor. With such a decadent flavor, why reserve this treat for only breakfast? Enjoy these Chocolate Overnight Oats as an afternoon snack or evening dessert.
