This Chocolate Cherry Cobbler Overnight Oats recipe is totally vegan, Dairy Free and Gluten Free! It’s an easy way to start your morning by doing a little prep work ahead!
I have lots of busy mornings, so I love breakfasts like overnight oats that can be made the night before. I made a really fun matcha rainbow version for St. Patrick’s Day (check it out here!) and I was dying to get back in the kitchen with a new creative version.
I love cherry cobbler so my Chocolate Cherry Cobbler Overnight Oats have quickly become my go-to morning meal.
How to Make Chocolate Cherry Cobbler Overnight Oats
I grew up making cherry cobbler in the summer, so I couldn’t resist turning my favourite dessert into breakfast and adding a little chocolate crunch. It feels so decadent, but honestly- it’s incredibly good for you thanks to the yogurt, oats and cherries.
Also, my version of chocolate cherry cobbler overnight oats is actually totally gluten free and dairy free, so it’s perfect if you are making breaky for someone with a food intolerance. Having said that, it’s a totally versatile recipe, so you can totally use regular greek yogurt and dairy milk and/or standard granola or oats if you’d like. You basically just have to mix together all of the ingredients in a bowl, then transfer them to a few mason jars to set up over night.
Go to sleep and ta-da!! You’ll wake up to an all ready to go jar of chocolate cherry cobbler overnight oats. Yep. Your morning just became more decadent.
But is it Healthy?
Hell yes. You’ve got fibre, protein and lots of antioxidants going on in these overnight oats! Plus… CHOCOLATE!! What’s not to love?
