You know those weird people that can't stay in bed past 7am? Yeah, hi I'm Georgina and I have a problem with sleeping on a morning. It's not that I don't want to - more that my body decides once I'm up I'm up. This, combined with the fact that I live 30 minutes away from my gym and the places I teach yoga, means I don't often eat breakfast at home. Usually it's eaten out of a jar or container post gym, pre work.

I've trailed many different portable breakfast options over the years, smoothies, eggs, chia puddings, yogurt, beans.... but none of them ever beat my love for overnight oats. Cold eggs and beans are not my cup of tea (to put it lightly), and no-one likes a watery smoothie. So these overnight oats are perfect. They're easy to mix up into a jar the night before and just grab on your way out the door the next morning. Plus. They are CHOCOLATE. NOM.

Ingredients: {serves 1}

  • 1/2 cup oats

  • 1 tbsp cacao powder*

  • 2 tsp chia seeds

  • 1 tsp honey/ pure maple syrup

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 tsp of nut butter (my faves are almond butter or peanut butter!)

  • 1/3 cup almond milk (or dairy free milk of choice)

  • 1/3 cup water

(*For a higher protein alternative replace the cacao for 2 tbsp of chocolate protein. Depending on the protein you use you may need to add a little more liquid).


  • Combine the oats, cacao powder and chia seeds in a jar.

  • Add in the maple syrup, vanilla, nut butter and almond milk and stir well to combine, until all creamy and lovely.

  • Pour in the 1/3 cup of water, mix well and then pop in the fridge to set overnight (or for at least four hours).

  • In the morning remove from the fridge, top with anything you fancy and devour!
