“I saw this girl eating a Mars Bar in my morning lecture. Who eats chocolate that early in the day?”

“People eat chocolate in the morning- You know the cereal aisle. There are so many chocolate options!”

“Um…who eats cereal for breakfast?”

“What do you mean?”

“Fruit loops, jujy fruits and nutrigrain are my popcorn. They fuel my OC binge watching”.

“JUJY fruits a cereal? What are you on about?”

“Well, they are on the corner shelves in the cereal aisle at the supermarket. That means they are a cereal.”

….Okay, Niki. When I see chips and chocolate at the checkout, I’m calling them magazines.

It’s been over a year since I shared this breakfast recipe in the hopes of getting my sister to start eating breakfast- The ‘nutella breakfast cookie dough. The silly rabbit has clearly forgotten that the selling point of this recipe for her was incorporating chocolate. Clearly, she’s gotten back on her high horse and now is judging people who enjoy candy bars for breakfast…

…WHICH THE RECIPE WAS CREATED TO BE LIKE EATING CANDY FOR BREAKFAST.

Over a year later, I can confidently say that Niki has not been eating breakfast. Not only that, her meals have been incredibly random, the chocolate bar for breakfast sounds like toast with peanut butter. Here’s an example of one week- The timing and the meal. 

Monday- Mee Goreng Noodles (Indonesian style instant noodles)- 1 pm, at home. 

Tuesday- Almonds, yogurt covered raisins and a coke- 11.30 am, at work.

Wednesday- Bolognaise penne pasta with a coke- 2 pm, out for lunch. 

Thursday- I forgot

Friday- Orange juice- 8.30am, on the way to work.

Saturday- Mum made her an egg salad sandwich at home (10.30 am)

Sunday- Mum chased her out of the house with a cheese and spinach wrap on the way to work. She didn’t eat it until 11.30 am, on her work break.

She didn’t eat it until 11.30 am, on her work break.

Safe to say, my sister would still be banished from most food blogging/healthy lifestyle blogger communities out there who think breakfast is as important as their (unborn) child. She’s informed me that she just can’t handle breakfast, nor does she think chocolate is acceptable.

C’est la vie.

Unlike Niki, I have a brain I am a huge fan of breakfast and should chocolate be involved- I’m game! Last week, I shared this easy and delicious breakfast cake which involves having the taste and texture of baked oatmeal but without the need to turn on an oven or make a huge batch! In that post, I promised some variations and here is one which will have chocoholics swooning- Healthy double chocolate overnight baked oatmeal

This healthy double chocolate overnight baked oatmeal takes 30 seconds to prep the night before and one minute zipped in the microwave the next morning! What remains? Well, you are left with a delicious, double chocolate oatmeal which has the taste and texture of baked oatmeal- Minus the baking part! It’s chewy, doughy and has the most amazing texture and it’s also single serve- No need to go through a whole batch over a week or so! It’s double chocolate because it uses both cocoa powder and either dairy free chips or sugar free chips. This baked oatmeal is a healthy and wholesome breakfast choice, and it’s also suitable for those following a vegan, dairy free, sugar free and gluten free lifestyle!

HACK! Want to take this oatmeal up to the next level? Once it’s been ‘baked’, top with 1 to 2 tablespoons of dairy free creamer (I recommend this one), coconut cream or some chocolate hazelnut spread– Epic does not even describe it!

Make this delicious, healthy one minute overnight double chocolate baked oatmeal and if you don’t eat breakfast, don’t be like Niki and judge the girl eating a candy bar at 9 am.

…That girl was eating a kit kat which is my favorite.

She’s my idol.

  1. I could and would never skip breakfast. Which is funny because I wasn’t really a fan as a kid. This I want on my body. HOW CAN I BE OUT OF OATS AT A TIME LIKE THIS?

    1. I would like to have the nutritional value of the chocolate breakfast oatmeal. I’m a Weight Watcher so I need to count points. Thanks

  2. Coincidence you’dn talk about breakfast preferences and habits in detail when it’s been on my mind a few times lately, too. I absolutely need breakfast/food before noon but noticed that only a few of my coworkers do. The most extreme is probably that one colleage who’s the first to arrive here at around 7 AM but eating her first meal at maybe noon or later. Insane looking at how
    Also, oatrmeal is one of the reasons to get out of bed. Mmh.

  3. I really like eating breakfast. I eat after I run so it’s nice to have some time to sit and get ready for the day. I think my family eats breakfast. I don’t live with them so I’m not positive. We always did as kids so I doubt anything has changed. Nikki is just superhuman lol

  4. HOW does this look so delicious?! I just ate and now I’m drooling all over my keyboard for this. Gah. I’m on Niki’s team with this one – I didn’t eat “breakfast” until 12pm today.

  5. Excuse me whilst I wipe the drool off my keyboard. I am making this. Tonight. Will be going to the store just as soon as I can pick my jaw up off the floor…because this looks so amazing I cannot even right now.

  6. No big breakfast eaters in my family at all. I ‘learned’ that when I was living with my in-laws. Now I don’t work without food in the morning.
    Love this. Will try this 🙂

  7. I recently stumbled on your blog and am so glad I did! My daughter and I made this last night and had it this morning and it is absolutely delicious! I’m excited to try more of your recipes. Thanks!

  8. Hi can you do this recipe with steel cut oats? Steel cut oats are healthier than rolled oats because they are lower on the glycemic index. Thanks!
