Guilt-free morning pleasure, this Sugar-free Choco-Coco Overnight Oats recipe is simply delicious. Gluten-free and healthy! <3
We are about to freeze over here! This morning the temperature was a freezing -17°C / 1.4°F. The car wouldn’t start and we had to replace the battery. The roller blinds froze, as they do every morning these days. We had to take our floor heating up a notch (and yay for floor heating, it’s the best!). The ground is frozen solid 20-30 cm deep (that’s about 8-11 inches). This winter is really cold and now we’re expecting the first real snowfall of the season.
All the more reason for delicious, but healthy food!
I don’t hide my love for oats. I eat oats regularly and happily, as it’s a filling & healthy breakfast option, that I can combine in many, many ways. I always try to keep it healthy and usually add no sugar, as in the case of this recipe. As I don’t consume much sugar anyway, my taste buds are already adjusted. So breakfasts, desserts & prepackaged goods are many times way too sweet to me (Mitja is even more sensitive, as he even takes his coffee straight black).
So this recipe works really well for me. I added unsweetened cacao powder for the chocolate taste, but no sugar. If you feel it is too bitter for you, feel free to add a teaspoon of sweetener of your choice.
This Sugar-Free Choco-Coco Overnight Oats recipe has no added sugars, and oats are naturally gluten-free, so it makes for the perfect healthy breakfast that will fill you up and make you feel & look great 😉 ❤
