Are you guys tired of overnight oats yet or are you ready for another go around this spring and summer? I am the latter camp, as you probably gathered from this recipe, and this is my new favourite combination. Black forest gateau is a classic treat for a reason and I’ve borrowed its delicious combination of chocolate and cherries for this simple, yet yummy, breakfast.

Oats are a staple at our house for breakfast and there are a few reasons. The first being that they’re one of the first breakfasts that we made on repeat when we had just gone vegan. Secondly they are very easy to make and you can vary them endlessly. Now with food prices soaring we really appreciate that they are very budget friendly on top of everything else.

Overnight oats is a great way to change things up after the long winter (at least here in Sweden) and many bowls of hot porridge. They are really great for meal prep too and this recipe is no different. So, feel free to make extra portions and enjoy fuss-free mornings with delicious chocolate-y oats in your bowl. It doesn’t really get much simpler than this, in the best way!
