If you love the thick and creamy consistency of overnight oats, then these Chocolate Strawberry Protein Oats will be right up your alley! They honestly taste like dessert for breakfast but are nice and filling. You only need 4 main ingredients and 5 minutes to make them!
Using hot cocoa mix in my oats is one of my favorite kitchen shortcuts. Feel free to experiment with your own cocoa/sugar/salt mixture, but this method is such a tasty time-saver!

- 1/2 Cup Quick Oats
- Water for the oats
- 1 Packet NibMor Hot Cocoa
- 1/2 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt (I used nonfat, but full fat would be delicious as well)
- Chopped Fresh Strawberries
Optional Additional Topping Ideas: Chocolate Chips, Coconut Flakes, Seeds Or Nuts, such as sunflower seeds or almonds
Cook up the oats with water (I use the microwave)
Stir in the hot cocoa packet
Stir in the yogurt until creamy and evenly combined
(You can let the yogurt cool the oats for more of an “overnight oats” experience, or briefly reheat them if necessary if you prefer them hotter)
Add the strawberries and any other desired toppings
