  • ¾ cup oats
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate chips
  • 2 Oreos crushed
  • cups nondairy milk


  • Add all the ingredients to a mason jar, or any type of container and mix until combined.
  • Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours, preferably overnight.
  • Enjoy the next morning!


I use a chocolate milk mix which already has sugar. If you’re using regular cocoa powder, you may want to add some kind of sweetener, such as maple syrup or brown sugar.
I use vanilla soy milk but any kind of milk works too.
