  • ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ cup dark chocolate almond milk, or regular chocolate almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup vanilla yogurt, regular or Greek
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • pinch salt, optional
  • ½ cup pitted and halved dark sweet cherries, fresh or frozen


  • Combine all ingredients in a jar (I use a 16-ounce jar) or a bowl; stir until everything is well-combined.
  • Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours (overnight).
  • Stir and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • I prefer the texture of old-fashioned rolled oats, but you can use quick oats as well (don't use instant oats, though...they will be way too mushy).
  • Not into almond milk? Use your favorite chocolate milk.
  • If you'd rather eat your oats warm, gently heat them in a small pot on the stove or put them in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until heated through.
  • Overnight oats will last for 3 to 5 days in the fridge. They will get softer the longer they sit.
