Oh Monday morning, how we dread you so. It’s the first day of a long work week. Maybe you just had an awesome weekend. Maybe it was relaxing. Maybe it wasn’t so great. Maybe you worked all weekend. B whatever kind of weekend you had, I”m sure you’re not super pleased that it’s Monday morning. Again. So let’s start the day with a little pick-me-up. Some easily earned endorphins. Let’s start the day with some chocolate.

Not only do these Black Forest Overnight Oats incorporate chocolate into your breakfast, they’re also secretly healthy. How great is that?! There’s no added sugar in the oatmeal unless you choose to add the mini chocolate chips. Enjoy Life Mini Chips are the best choice since there are very little added ingredients. You can leave them out if you want but I really think they add so much. They add just a hint of sweetness and a really great texture contrast to the soft oatmeal.

I like to top the Black Forest Overnight Oats with the mini chocolate chips and some extra cherries because black forest cakes are usually garnished with cherries and chocolate shavings. This is such a fun twist on a classic dessert made healthy enough to enjoy for breakfast. So do yourself a favor and make these overnight oats tonight so they’ll be ready for you in the morning. Enjoy!
